Translation Cooperation

HURRIYET – International cooperation mounts in the United Nations General Assembly as the delegations of Syria and Chile translated a document from Spanish to English, so that the Latin America Block in the GA could interpret and assess it for useful information regarding the topic currently in discussion: implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity.

The document translated was the strategic regional framework for the Andes Region of South America on the very same topic. The question of why the delegations in the Latin America block needed aid translating their own national language in the first place remains a mystery.
