15/6 - Economic crisis, foreign debt and the environment (decision 15/6).

28. At the 12th meeting of the session, on 25 May, the Council had before it a draft decision on this subject submitted by the Bureau (UNEP/GC.15/L.36).

29. The draft decision was adopted without a vote.

30. The representative of the United Kingdom, supported by the representatives of the Federal Republic of Germany, Japan, and the United States of America, said that his delegation was unhappy about the language of the operative part of the decision, since it considered that question of debt management should be pursued within other United Nations forums.
