Also, it includes a time plan and deadlines for submissions from countries under this resolution.

    Meanwhile, the Republic of Iraq is identified with low EPM value in the Appendix 30 plan of its national assignment, that is referred to at WRC-12, in the minutes of thirteenth plenary meeting, which stated that “The conference decides to instruct the Bureau and the RRB to carefully investigate the matter in order to find ways and means to alleviate the situation such as suggesting another orbital position for Iraq and processing its requirement on the selected new orbital position with the highest priority in the processing chain of Article 4 of Appendices 30 and 30A or the possible options as appropriate”. However, this was a difficult task to be achieved with the previous provisions of modifying the national assignments.

    In the view of the above facts and difficulties, the Administration of Iraq reserves its right to obtain the support of the Bureau and the RRB in the application of this resolution, especially when the deadlines of the resolution could not be met at the appropriate time.

  • 4) In considering Agenda item 1.14 of WRC-19, the new footnote (5.G114) has been added to RR as a compromise among the different issues addressed under this agenda item.

The Administration of Iraq is on the opinion that this footnote and its associated Resolution 168 (WRC-19) does not ensure protection of its current and future services in this frequency band.

In this regard, the Administration of Iraq reserves its right to take any measures it may consider necessary to protect these services from HAPS, such that HAPS shall not interfere nor claim protection from these services.

In accordance with the universally recognized principle of equality of rights and self-determination of peoples enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, and based on the free and voluntary expression of the will of the Crimean people in the Crimea-wide referendum held in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol on 16 March 2014, and also in accordance with the Agreement between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Crimea on the accession of the Republic of Crimea to the Russian Federation and the creation of new constituent entities within the Russian Federation (Moscow, 18 March 2014), the Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol have become an integral part of the Russian Federation.

This being the case, the Russian Federation has become fully responsible for providing telecommunication services for the population of and facilities within the territory of the Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol, including in regard to compliance with the provisions of the Constitution and Convention of the International Telecommunication Union, the ITU Radio Regulations, and the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974.

Ukraine’s calls relating to the management of the radio frequency spectrum and numbering resources within this territory of the Russian Federation first and foremost run counter to the requirements of the population both in terms of daily needs and in the event of emergencies. The chosen frequency assignments to radio communication services on the territory of the Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol do not generate any harmful interference to stations beyond the borders of the Russian Federation.

For its part, pursuant to its basic texts, the International Telecommunication Union has no authority to discuss matters of a general political nature, including questions of the territorial integrity and national sovereignty of States. The Ukrainian document addresses matters related to the status of the Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol as parts of the Russian Federation and, therefore, goes beyond ITU’s mandate.

The Russian Federation is thus acting in full compliance with Article 1 of the ITU Constitution, in satisfying requirements and ensuring availability of telecommunication/ICT facilities for the inhabitants of the above-mentioned constituent entities of the Russian Federation. Should any State adopt measures to the detriment of the interests of the Russian Federation, the Russian Federation reserves the right to adopt any necessary countermeasures to safeguard its interests in accordance with international law.

As regards the areas in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions referred to, it should be noted that they, together with Kiev, are parties in an internal Ukrainian conflict, in connection with which the Ukrainian side imposed an economic, transport, humanitarian and communications blockade. The Russian Federation calls on Kiev to lift the blockade, and supports a swift resolution of the internal conflict in the Donbass region on the sole basis of the “Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements” approved with the adoption of the United Nations Security Council resolution 2202 of 17 February 2015.

The above-mentioned delegations also wish to state that reference in Article 44 of the Constitution to the “geographical situation of particular countries” does not imply recognition of a claim to any preferential rights to the geostationary-satellite orbit.

For the Republic of India:

For Lebanon and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

It is the understanding of Lebanon and Pakistan, Members of the International Telecommunication Union, that Resolution 12 (Rev.WRC-19) had been agreed upon among the parties, with the kind support of the Secretary-General, Chairman of the Conference and numerous parties. Lebanon and Pakistan strongly oppose the text of reservation No. 84 contained in Document 564. The reservation, which relates to Resolution 12 (Rev.WRC-19), runs counter to the spirit of cooperation that had facilitated the elaboration of a consensus formulation in the discussion of Resolution 12 (Rev.WRC-19), adopted by the Conference.

The above administrations call on all those responsible to implement Resolution 12 (Rev.WRC-19) in such a manner as to assist the Palestinian side to build telecommunication networks and provide modern services to the Palestinian people.

E. PARTIJGEGEVENS

Het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden heeft op 31 juli 2020 verklaringen afgelegd. De Engelse tekst van deze verklaringen luidt als volgt:

64

The Kingdom of the Netherlands, for the European part of the Netherlands, declares that it will apply the revision of the Radio Regulations adopted at this Conference in accordance with its obligations under the Treaty on the European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

80

The Kingdom of the Netherlands declares that it maintains the declarations and reservations made by the Kingdom of the Netherlands when signing the Final Acts of previous treaty making conferences of the Union as if they were made in full at this World Radiocommunication Conference.

94

The Kingdom of the Netherlands, referring to the declaration made by Ukraine [No. 44], declares that it remains committed to uphold the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders. The Kingdom of the Netherlands does not recognize the illegal referendum in Crimea, which is in dear violation of the Ukrainian Constitution and it strongly condemns the Russian Federation’s illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol. The Kingdom further believes that there is no place for the use of force and coercion to change borders in Europe in the 21st Century.

Therefore, the Kingdom of the Netherlands calls upon the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to implement fully the terms of Resolution 68/262 (2014) of the United Nations General Assembly that “calls upon all States, international organizations and specialized agencies not to recognize any alteration of the status of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol” and to “refrain from any action or dealing that might be interpreted as recognizing any such altered status”.

In this regard, the Kingdom of the Netherlands welcomes the statement by the ITU Secretary-General at the 2014 Plenipotentiary Conference (Busan, 2014), published in Document PP-14/174, Annex B (https://www.itu.int/rnd/S14-PP-C-O174/en) and the statement by the ITU Secretary-General, published in the ITU Operational Bulletin No. 1158 dated 15 October 2018 (https://www.itu.int/pub/T-SP-OB. 1158-2018) and encourage the ITU Secretary-General and the Directors of the three Bureaux to continue to take all necessary actions in order to assist Ukraine to ensure the use of its telecommunications resources in accordance with the Constitution and Convention of the International Telecommunication Union and the Administrative Regulations.

106

The Kingdom of the Netherlands, referring to the declaration made by the Republic of Colombia (No. 564/14), inasmuch as these and any similar statements refer to the Bogotá Declaration of 3 December 1976 made by equatorial countries and to claims of those countries to exercise sovereign rights over segments of the geostationary-satellite orbit, or to any related claims, considers that the claims in question cannot be recognized by this Conference. The Kingdom of the Netherlands also wishes to state that reference in Article 44 of the Constitution to the “geographical situation of particular countries” does not imply recognition of a claim to any preferential rights to the geostationary-satellite orbit.
