Agenda item 99
Training and research
Report of the Second Committee (A/58/489)
I now call on the representative of Spain, who wishes to speak in explanation of vote before the voting.
Spain endorses the content of the draft resolution on the United Nations Institute for Training and Research. However, we would like to clarify our position on operative paragraph 4 of the draft, which relates to the need to continue developing and expanding partnerships between the Institute and other bodies of the United Nations system with respect to their training programmes, in particular at the country level.
Spain would like to place on record the fact that it interprets this operative paragraph as referring solely to the establishment of partnerships between the Institute and other organizations and bodies of the United Nations system, and definitely not to possible partnerships between UNITAR and territorial, non-State entities.
The Assembly will now take a decision on the two draft resolutions recommended by the Second Committee in paragraph 16 of its report.
Draft resolution I, entitled "United Nations Institute for Training and Research", was adopted by the Second Committee and was orally corrected by the Rapporteur. May I take it that the Assembly wishes to adopt this resolution?
Draft resolution II, entitled "United Nations System Staff College in Turin, Italy", was adopted by the Second Committee. May I take it that the Assembly wishes to do likewise?
May I take it that it is the wish of the Assembly to conclude its consideration of agenda item 99?
