Align fully with the statement given by Pakistan on behalf of the G77+C. For the AG the BBNJ agreement was and is about the common heritage of humankind, restoring and preserving the health of the ocean, supporting livelihoods and addressing global inequality. Acknowledge that progress has been made and the finish line is in sight, time just ran out. Only a good treaty will end the perpetuation of the status quo as well as reflect concerns of AG. Support the decision to suspend the meeting and join the call for the preservation of the work done. Re-echos the importance of having experts from capitols attend the IGC and therefore underscore the critical role of the Voluntary Trust Fund to get our experts to attend the resumed IGC5. The AG shall continue to engage constructively, to collectively fulfill our obligations for future generations.
