The State Department made good on its transparency promise with respect to negotiations for the upcoming World Conference on International Telecommunications when it published Aug. 3 the government's first set of treaty proposals.
The submission proposes amendments to the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs). The U.S. filing, submitted to the International Telecommunication Union by Ambassador Philip L. Verveer, largely follows the Aug. 1 preview given by the U.S. WCIT delegation head, Ambassador Terry D. Kramer.
In the proposals, the United States indicated its support for “efforts to utilize the ITRs as a tool to foster continued development of international telecommunications, without overburdening the telecommunications sector with unnecessary and intrusive regulation.”
In a related action, the House passed a resolution Aug. 3 urging the administration to “continue working to implement the position of the United States on Internet governance that clearly articulates the consistent and unequivocal policy of the United States to promote a global Internet free from government control and preserve and advance the successful multistakeholder model that governs the Internet today.”
WCIT will take place Dec. 3-14, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The three documents comprising the U.S. contributions to WCIT-12, a transmittal letter, the proposals, and a draft of the ITRs showing suggested changes, can be accessed at http://www.state.gov/e/eb/cip/.
