Remains committed to an international regime for conservation and sustainable use of BBNJ. Believe that an agreement is beginning to take shape. Canada will be fully engaged.

Appreciate the way this session has been conducted, we have regained momentum. Full confidence in way forward, including your providing us with a streamlined text. Text is in our hands and we have the power. Glad to see civil society back, their presence is critical.  We will engage with delegations in the months ahead.
