The United States is pleased to join consensus on this resolution and would like to express our appreciation to the facilitator, Switzerland, for their skillful leadership of negotiations. We would like to use this opportunity to refer member states to the U.S. explanation of position regarding our views on the re-configured UN Resident Coordinator system that was delivered on October 28 at the adoption of the “Review of the Functioning of the Reinvigorated Resident Coordinator System, Including Its Funding Arrangement” resolution. With regard to the U.S. position on other cross-cutting issues in this resolution, including the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, we refer member states to our general statement delivered on November 18. Thank you.
