On the Adoption of the Decision on Revised Financing Modalities for the Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine: Statement to the PC

The United States welcomes the adoption of this decision.  The SMM is a common effort of all of our countries, and common efforts of the OSCE need to be funded by assessed contributions.  We strongly support the challenging work being done by the SMM monitors, and we commend them for their professionalism, courage, and determination.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
