PGA letter on the political declaration for the HLPF/GA (silence broken)

As can be seen in the attached letters from the President of the General Assembly and co-facilitators, one delegate has broken the silence procedure by asking that the following amendment “discharge of plastic litter into the oceans” be inserted into paragraph 20. The co-facilitators will continue to consult with Member States and groups to finding a solution, putting the final draft under silence procedure as early as possible.
