India has been re-elected to the UN Commission on International Trade Law for another six years term, maintaining its unbeaten track record of winning elections at the world body.
At an election held here on Moday in the General Assembly, India was re-elected to UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) for the 2016-2022 term.
India would continue to play a constructive role in the UNCITRAL which is recognised as the core legal body of the United Nations system in the field of international trade law, the Indian Mission to the UN said in a statement.
A legal body with universal membership specialising in commercial law reform worldwide for over 40 years, UNCITRAL’s business is the modernisation and harmonisation of rules on international business.
As a member, India has been playing an active role in the UN legal bodies which include International Court of Justice (ICJ), International law Commission (ILC), International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS), Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) and UNCITRAL.
The Permanent Mission of India voiced appreciation for the support extended by the UN Members States.
The Assembly elected 23 members to UNICTRAL for six-year terms beginning June 27 next year including Australia, Brazil, Chile, Israel, Iran, Italy, Pakistan, Philippines, Spain, Turkey, the US and Venezuela.
