to a close at 12:44 pm

On Friday, delegates to the seventeenth meeting of the UN Open-ended Informal Consultative Process on Oceans and the Law of the Sea (ICP-17) completed their work.

In the morning, delegations were given an opportunity to review the Co-Chairs’ draft summary of the week’s discussions. Plenary then reconvened at 12:00pm to undertake a page-by-page review of the summary. Delegates discussed the draft and suggested corrections and clarifications to best capture discussions. In their closing statements, many delegations commended ICP-17 and thanked the Co-Chairs for their work.

The Co-Chairs thanked delegates for their participation in the fruitful discussions over the course of the week, and declared the meeting closed at 12:44pm.
