Letter from the Chairman of the Committee on Conferences (A/52/340)
The Assembly will now turn its attention to document A/52/340, which contains a letter dated 12 September 1997 from the Chairman of the Committee on Conferences addressed to the President of the Assembly.
As members are aware, the Assembly, in paragraph 7 of its resolution 40/243, decided that no subsidiary organ of the General Assembly should be permitted to meet at United Nations Headquarters during a regular session of the Assembly unless explicitly authorized by the Assembly.
As indicated in the letter I have just mentioned, the Committee on Conferences has recommended that the General Assembly authorize the Executive Board of the United Nations Development Programme/United Nations Population Fund, which has been meeting from 15 September of this year, to meet until 19 September 1997.
Bearing in mind that this period overlaps with the fifty-second session of the Assembly, may I take it that the General Assembly adopts the recommendation of the Committee on Conferences?
We have thus concluded consideration of all the items for today's General Assembly meeting.
