Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.

We would like to thank the facilitator, Rosemary O’Hehir, for her leadership on this resolution. The United States is pleased to join consensus on this resolution this year.

The United States refers delegations to our national statement, delivered on November 18, with respect to references to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the Paris Agreement, climate change, and the term “build back better.”

Thank you.
