Dear Distinguished Members of the ICAPP Standing Committee,

With regard to the ICAPP's bid for observer status in the U.N. General Assembly, the representatives of several co-sponsoring member states have advised that the co-sponsors  announce their decision not to pursue the request for observer status at the current session of the UNGA, while reserving the right to present it at a future session.


They also proposed to recommend the Sixth Committee  to conclude its consideration of the item on the ICAPP without taking action at its meeting in late October or November. (See attached copy of the decision on agenda item 168 at the Sixth Committee meeting on November 19, 2013) 


It is their view that, under the circumstances, it seems difficult to expect to win the consensus in the foreseeable future, and it may be the best way to defer consideration on the item to a future session as they did at the 68th session in November 2013. 


In this regard, SC Members are kindly requested to submit their opinion on the above suggestion.


Also attached is copy of the statement made by Deputy Permanent Representative of the Republic of Korea to the U.N. who introduced the draft resolution at the Sixth Committee meeting on October 11, 2016 on behalf of the co-sponsors.


With warm regards,

Chung Eui-yong
Co-Chairman and
Secretary General of the ICAPP
Seoul, Korea
