Ambassador D. Mwape (Zambia)
A.i First sub-question
7. Before addressing the first sub-question, the Chairman recalled that, at the June meeting, the delegation of the United States had made suggestions about "further elaboration of sub question Number 1". The suggestions had been reflected in paragraph 68 of the minutes in TN/IP/M/26. At the request of the delegation of the United States, hard copies of these questions had been made available in the room. He suggested that, when addressing the various elements of his sub questions, the delegation of the United States used their perspective to respond to them, which would help other delegations to better understand the current practices in the United States.
The Special Session took note of the statements made.
