Point 35 : E.U. explanation of vote by Ms. Marie-Anna Lebovits, French delegate

On behalf of the European Union I would like to make this statement regarding the draft resolution on the "implementation of the declaration on the granting of independence to colonial countries and peoples by the specialized agencies and the international institutions associated with the United nations".

The States members of the European Union reaffirm their support for the specialized agencies in their efforts to offer assistance to Non-Self-Governing Territories in the humanitarian, technical and educational fields. However, the statutes of those agencies must be carefully respected, and for that reason the European Union had again abstained in the vote on the draft resolution.
