Thank you, Chairperson.

The United States is committed to promoting and protecting democracy around the world. However, as stated in years past, the United States has concerns with the general premise of the resolution, as well as with specific aspects of the text.

For these reasons, we request a vote and we will vote against this resolution.

Thank you, Chairperson.
