NOTE BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL

Simplification of the list of matters of which the Security
Council is seized (rule 11 of the provisional rules of
procedure of the Security Council)


1. As part of their efforts to improve the documentation of the Security Council, the members of the Council have again reviewed the list of matters of which the Security Council is seized. That list if contained in the summary statement by the Secretary-General established pursuant to rule 11 of the Council's provisional rules of procedure.

2. The Security Council has decided that, as of 15 September 1996, matters which have not been considered by the Council in the preceding five years will be automatically deleted from the list of matters of which the Council is seized.

3. The result will be that in the next summary statement issued by the Secretary-General after 15 September 1996, the matters listed in the annex to the present note will be deleted. A matter will, however, be provisionally retained in the list of matters of which the Security Council is seized for a period of one year if a Member of the United Nations notifies its objection to its deletion before 15 September 1996. If at the end of one year the matter has still not been considered by the Council, it will be automatically deleted.

4. The removal of a matter from the list of matters of which the Security Council is seized has no implication for the substance of the matter and does not affect the exercise by Member States of its right to bring matters to the attention of the Security Council in conformity with Article 35 of the Charter of the United Nations. The Council may at any time decide to include any matter in the agenda of a meeting of the Council, whether or not it is mentioned in the list.
