Adoption of the agenda
The situation in Afghanistan
Letter dated 21 May 2001 from the Secretary-General addressed to the President of the Security Council (S/2001/511)
The Security Council will now begin its consideration of the item on its agenda. The Security Council is meeting in accordance with the understanding reached in its prior consultations.
Members of the Council have before them document S/2001/511, containing a letter dated 21 May 2001 from the Secretary-General addressed to the President of the Security Council, transmitting the report of the Committee of Experts appointed pursuant to Security Council 1333 (2000) regarding the monitoring of the arms embargo against the Taliban and the closure of the terrorist training camps in the Taliban-held areas of Afghanistan. Members of the Security Council also have before them document S/2001/741, which contains the text of a draft resolution submitted by Colombia.
I should like to point to an error in the draft resolution. In operative paragraph 5, the word “Teams” should read “Team”. The text will be amended following the adoption of the draft resolution.
It is my understanding that the Security Council is ready to proceed to the vote on the draft resolution (S/2001/741) before it. If I hear no objection, I shall now put the draft resolution to the vote.
There being no objection, it is so decided.
favour=15 against=0 abstain=0 absent=0
Bangladesh, China, Colombia, France, Ireland, Jamaica, Mali, Mauritius, Norway, Russia, Singapore, Tunisia, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States
There were 15 votes in favour. The draft resolution has been adopted unanimously as resolution 1363 (2001).
The Security Council has thus concluded the present stage of its consideration of the item on its agenda. The Security Council will remain seized of the matter.
