Ambassador Eui-yong Chung (Korea, Republic of)
C.i New papers from participants
13. The Chairperson thanked the delegations that had tabled new proposals and believed that they would contribute to the negotiating process. He recalled the suggestion he had made regarding the September meeting as a target date to present new or revised proposals; this did not, however, rule out the possibility of subsequent new or revised proposals at a later stage. Proposals aimed at bridging gaps would be an essential part of the negotiations. He would, therefore, continue to encourage all Members to come up with as many new or revised proposals as possible by the November meeting. He added that a detailed discussion of the papers presented could also take place in the course of discussions relating to the four sets of issues identified in his informal note.
