16. The spokesman of the Latin American and Caribbean Group said that his group had no difficulty with the three topics proposed under item 4 and 5 of the agenda but felt that since the Governing Council at its fourteenth session and the United Nations General Assembly at its forty-second session had approved the items “System-wide medium- term environment programme (1990-1995)” and “Revisions to the global programme on the environment of the extended United Nations medium-term plan for the period 1984- 1989” for the current special session, those two topics should be discussed first, after which the medium-term plan of the United Nations Environment Programme for the period 1990-1995 could be considered, within the time available at the session.
