Thank you Mr. Chairman. The United States has asked for the floor to express its regret that a vote was called on the selection of the Israeli delegate as a vice chair of the Fourth Committee. We also regret the decisive and politicized rhetoric we have heard today from those who called for this vote. We believe that, consistent with its usual practice, this body should have elected the Israeli delegate by acclamation. The United States wishes to express its unequivocal support for the election of our Israeli colleague. Mr. Amihai will serve as a worthy and excellent vice chair of the committee, and we congratulate him. Thank you.
