[A2k] Agenda item on casting treaty (current state of play)
Wed Sep 28 13:10:04 2005
7:05 PM Geneva time
This is the current state of play. The Chairman's text on the agenda
item on the treaty on the protection of broadcasting organizations was
rejected during the informal consultations.
The following text below was submitted during the informal consultations
as a best endeavour to bridge the gap between the two camps in the
broadcast treaty discussions. This text did NOT reach consensus. At
5:10 PM the Chair noted that there was no consensus on this item. He
delegated Argentina and the United Kingdom to draft a consensus text.
This will be discussed tomorrow. The next item in the agenda was the
At least two meetings of SCCR shall be scheduled to consider the second
Revised Version of the consolidated text (SCCR/12/2/Rev. 2) on the
protection of the rights of broadcasting organizations. The objectives
of these meetings would be to reach an agreement on a consolidated text
to enable the 2006 General Assembly to consider convening a Diplomatic
Conference in 2007.
Chair: On Item 10, we have yet to reach consensus. Therefore, I've
asked the UK and Argentina to act as my delegates in having more
consultations. We will return to this later.
Now, we turn to Item 13, the Development Agenda
