Dear Mr. President,
On behalf of France and the Netherlands, we are glad that this committee has once again opted for consensus on such a crucial subject.
We are proud that the General Assembly adopted this first resolution specifically dedicated to the fight against sexual harassment. It is a historic step, and must be fully reflected through action.
The result of this vote also shows the delegations’ commitment to this committee’s working methods and to good negotiation practices, despite a few attempts to diverge from them.
