Note by the President of the Security Council

1. Further to the notes by the President of the Security Council dated 30 June 1993 (S/26015), 27 July 1993 (S/26176), 31 August 1993 (S/26389), 29 November 1993 (S/26812), 28 February 1994 (S/1994/230) and 28 July 1994 (S/1994/896) concerning the Council's documentation and other procedural questions, the President of the Security Council wishes to state that all members of the Security Council have indicated their agreement with the following proposals:

The following improvements should be introduced to make the procedures of the Sanctions Committees more transparent:

  • The practice of issuing press releases after meetings of the Committee should be increased;

  • The Status of Communications lists under the ‘No Objection’ procedure prepared by the Secretariat should be made available to any delegation which wishes to have a copy;

  • A list of all other decisions by each active Committee should be prepared by the Secretariat, on a regular basis, and be made available to any delegation which requests it;

  • The annual report of the Security Council to the General Assembly should contain, in the Introduction, more information about each Committee than it does at present;

  • An annual report to the Security Council should be prepared by each Committee, providing a concise indication of each Committee's activities;

  • An effort should be made to expedite the preparation of the summary records of each Committee.

For the implementation of these measures, the existing procedures of the Committees should be respected.

Meetings of the Sanctions Committees should remain closed, as they are now, and the summary records of those meetings should continue to be distributed according to the existing pattern.

2. The members of the Council will continue their consideration of other suggestions concerning the Council's documentation and related matters.
