Aligns with G77+C and AOSIS. Disappointed that time did not allow us to conclude the negotiations today, however, we recognize the significant progress made in the session and we remain committed to conclude the negotiations to adopt an agreement that’s universal and also practicable at the earliest. Have shown our flexibility and made concessions on issues that were very difficult for us. Recognizing that ABNJs are a common heritage of mankind, it is imperative to ensure that this process is inclusive, transparent and fair. Must note that the participation in parallel sessions and in small groups was a challenge for small delegations, and that going forward, we would appreciate it if the process can be structured to allow for greater participation by all member states.
