Align with G77+C and AG. The current status of the ABNJ is unsatisfactory, this was the basis of the UN GA resolution that created the process we are in. Iinability to conclude these negotiations indicate that the status quo is unbalanced and unsustainable. However, all is not lost; we have made impressive progress in this round of negotiations. Due to a lack of flexibility by some, we support the decision to suspend negotiations so as to preserve the achievements gained so far. We shall measure our success on the basis of the seed planted today. Hope that the resumed discussion will take us to the finishing line; you may count on the support and commitment of Tanzania.
