Pleased to observe significant progress. Our participation has been active and constructive and has been on the understanding that the BBNJ process is open to all UN member States regardless of UNCLOS status. Reaffirm that, with exception to three articles, we support the general intent of the UNCLOS, particularly those related to MPAs. Need to bridge gaps on several key issues. Article 4.3 concerning the legal status of Non-Parties to the UNCLOS needs to be kept. Dispute settlement procedures need to take into account Non-Parties of UNCLOS. Would like to clarify the definition of ABNJ, that there are still areas that haven’t been proclaimed which should not be considered ABNJs. Turkey remains committed to the consensus of IGC5.
