Ambassador Choi Hyuck (Korea)
G DECISION ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PARAGRAPH 6 OF THE DOHA DECLARATION ON THE TRIPS AGREEMENT AND PUBLIC HEALTH
198. The representative of Malaysia said that a technical amendment should lead to a permanent solution, but the Chairman's Statement should not form part of the amendment. The Statement was not an integral part of the agreement and its legal status should not be changed. Her delegation was interested in participating in the Chairman's consultations to find a permanent solution. While the objective was to find a solution before the Hong Kong Ministerial Conference, she supported the statement made by the delegation of Brazil at an informal consultation earlier that day according to which no solution was better than a bad solution.
