The second meeting of the Main Committee, chaired by Patricia Licuanan, was convened during an afternoon session to review the results of the Working Groups, as contained in non-papers prepared by the Secretariat. The Chair urged delegations to make their reservations in the Main Committee, which would be included in the final report presented to the Plenary on Friday. Upon approval by the Main Committee, the text and corrigenda would be issued in all UN languages. She then invited the Committee to consider Chapter IV, Section E (armed conflict).
Several delegates, including Mauritius, on behalf of all francophone delegations, the EU, France, Benin, Tunisia, and Paraguay expressed concern that the non-papers were only prepared in English. The Secretariat proposed reading the new language so that delegates could hear through the interpreters exactly what they were adopting. The Chair, however, noted the general consensus that without text in all UN languages there could be no progress, and adjourned the meeting until Tuesday.
