Japan, the US, Austria and Canada said
that no subsidiary bodies should be established. Tunisia, supported
by Mexico, Venezuela and Brazil, suggested establishment of a

matter of coherence within Governments, since it will be the same
Governments that will be represented in the COP and in the
Participant's Assembly of the GEF.
