Statement by Ambassador Peter Thomson at the 16th Meeting of the Open-Ended Informal Consultative Process on Oceans and Law of the Sea

Let me firstly congratulate you for taking the helm of this Informal Consultative Process. You can be assured of the Fiji Delegation's full support throughout this meeting.

At the outset, Fiji aligns itself with the statements delivered by South Africa on behalf of G77 and China, by Malidives on behalf of AOSIS and by the Kingdom of Tonga on behalf of PSIDS. Allow me Co-Chairs to also thank the Secretary-General and those concerned, particularly DOALOS, for the comprehensive report that ties in well with this year's theme.
