WORKING GROUP ON FAMILY REUNIFICATION

Since the Main Committee could not agree on the language on family reunification in paragraph 10.12 on Wednesday, Amb. Biegman announced the establishment of a working group to try to reach consensus. The group is chaired by Egypt and its members include: Algeria (G-77), the EU, Turkey, Argentina, Canada, Australia and the US. The group managed to meet for about half an hour on Thursday as it migrated from room to room. Consensus appears possible and Egypt is expected to distribute compromise text on Friday.
