The United States strongly supports the participation of civil society in the work of the UN, and as a member of the NGO Committee, underscores the importance of the work of the Committee. Due to additional information that has come to light in this matter, we strongly support the proposal by Georgia for the Council to send this application back to the NGO Committee for further review and will vote in favor of the draft decision before us.
