The Arab States held their first WCIT preparatory meeting in Dubai from 11 to 13 December 2011. As a result of discussions at that meeting, a certain number of revisions were agreed in principle.
This contribution presents the preliminary views of the Arab State on the basis of a first discussion. We reserve our right to revisit these proposals and to submit revised versions and/or additional or different proposals.
During their first preparatory meeting; the Arab administrations at this stage agreed to initially adopt the following general principles in preparation of their contribution towards revising the ITRs:
1) ITRs complete the CS/CV; the relevant text (provisions and or articles) in the CS/CV should be transferred to the ITRs, as appropriate
2) Replace the term administrations/ROA with Member States and/or Operating Agency as appropriate, and (see German Proposal)
3) Strengthen the enforcement of the ITRs, and Member States and Operating Agencies obligations in implementing its provisions and resolutions
