Today the ITU Plenipotentiary conference in Busan, Korea, accepted the following resolutions, which are of importance for the global Internet community.
Please, download them them here, as follows (note that in red color are the changes from the previous resolutions):
Resolution 101 (INTERNET PROTOCOL-BASED NETWORKS)
Resolution 102 (ITU’S ROLE WITH REGARD TO INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC POLICY ISSUES PERTAINING TO THE INTERNET AND THE MANAGEMENT OF INTERNET RESOURCES, INCLUDING DOMAIN NAMES AND ADDRESSES)
Resolution 133 (ROLE OF ADMINISTRATIONS OF MEMBER STATES IN THE MANAGEMENT OF INTERNATIONALIZED (MULTILINGUAL) DOMAIN NAMES)
Resolution 180 (FACILITATING THE TRANSITION FROM IPV4 TO IPV6)
Veni Markovski, chairman of ISOC-Bulgaria, was a member of the Bulgarian delegation to the ITU-PP14, and was an active participant in the work of the ad-hoc group, which spent more than 50 hours in the days of the conference, to achieve the final edits above quoted resolutions.
We were also told that he has been active both in front of the microphone, and in the hallways, and has provided a lot of factual information to his fellow colleagues at the delegation of Bulgaria, and other delegations from around the globe.
In reporting back to ISOC-Bulgaria, he mentioned the good and cooperative spirit, which was present at the conference by all participants.
“It is totally different than the ITU WCIT in 2012, which was widely recognized as a failure by all participants, no matter how they voted”, he noted in special comment for this publication. “This time we worked in the good spirit of reaching consensus on all matter.”
Veni Markovski also said, “I am happy to see also a lot of members of the Internet Society here, including ISOC CEO Kathy Brown, and others. The Regional Internet Registries and ICANN also had teams on the ground, which is good, as this shows the Internet organizations can provide valuable factual information to the member states’ delegations.”
