Agenda item 74
Review and implementation of the Concluding Document of the Twelfth Special Session of the General Assembly
Report of the First Committee (A/58/463)
The Assembly has before it six draft resolutions recommended by the First Committee in paragraph 23 of its report.
My delegation would like to orally amend draft resolution I, entitled "United Nations Regional Centre for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean", contained in document A/58/463.
As the delegation of Cuba has already said, the eighteenth session of the General Conference of the Agency for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean took place in Havana on 5 and 6 November 2003. In order to update the draft resolution, my delegation wishes to orally amend the eighth preambular paragraph with the following changes. In line 3, the words "will be" should be replaced by the words "was" so that it reads "and that this fact was officially acknowledged". In line 6, the words "to be" should be replaced by the words "which was" so that it reads "which was held at Havana". We kindly ask for the support of all delegations in adopting these two oral amendments.
I shall now put the six draft resolutions to the vote by the Assembly, one by one. After all the decisions have been taken, representatives will again have the opportunity to explain their vote.
The representative of Costa Rica has submitted an oral amendment to the eighth preambular paragraph of draft resolution I. In accordance with rule 90 of the rules of procedure, the Assembly will first take a decision on the oral amendment to the eighth preambular paragraph of draft resolution I.
May I take it that the Assembly decides to adopt the oral amendment to the eighth preambular paragraph of draft resolution I?
We turn now to draft resolution I, as orally amended, entitled "United Nations Regional Centre for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean".
The First Committee adopted draft resolution I without a vote. May I take it that the Assembly wishes to do the same?
Draft resolution II is entitled "United Nations Regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Africa".
The First Committee adopted draft resolution II without a vote. May I take it that the Assembly wishes to do the likewise?
