98. Sri Lanka reiterates its support to the Ministerial Decision adopted on 17 June 2022 on the extension of the Non-Violation and Situation Complaints Moratorium stipulated under the Article 64.2 of the TRIPS Agreement until MC13, which would permit Members to refrain from bringing any unintended violations of provisions, including in use of compulsory licences, of the TRIPS Agreement to the WTO dispute settlement system. 99. Sri Lanka's position on this issue remains unchanged as a co-sponsor of the document IP/C/W/385. Accordingly, Sri Lanka supports the decision to instruct the TRIPS Council to continue its examination of scope and modalities, and to make appropriate recommendations to the MC13 and we look forward to working with like-minded Members in making non-violation complaints inapplicable to TRIPS and come up with a way forward and a permanent solution for these longdelayed issues.
