Agenda item 65
Report of the Human Rights Council
Report of the Third Committee (A/62/434)
The Assembly has before it a draft resolution recommended by the Third Committee in paragraph 16 of its report and a draft decision recommended by the Committee in paragraph 17 of the same report.
Before proceeding further, I should like to inform Members that action on the draft resolution, entitled "Report of the Human Rights Council", is postponed to a later date to allow time for the review of its programme budget implications by the Fifth Committee. The Assembly will take action on the draft resolution as soon as the report of the Fifth Committee on its programme budget implications is available.
We shall now take action on the draft decision, entitled "Report of the Human Rights Council". May I take it that the Assembly wishes to adopt the draft decision recommended by the Third Committee?
I call now on representatives wishing to speak in explanation of position on the decision just adopted.
We disassociated ourselves from the report of the Human Rights Council in the Third Committee, and we would like to do the same at this time.
The United States too wishes to dissociate itself from the consensus on the report just adopted under agenda item 65, "Report of the Human Rights Council", with respect to the non-institution-building sections of the Human Rights Council's report, for the reasons that we stated in the Third Committee.
The Assembly has thus concluded this stage of its consideration of agenda item 65.
