[IRP] Hey ITU Member States: No More Secrecy, Release the Treaty Proposals

I agree with Fouad that the strategy should be two-pronged. We should
direct our concerns and statements to ITU, but bearing in mind that the
 member states are the ones behind the decisions. The bureaucratic
structure is there to serve the members. If the documents have not been
released that is because members wanted otherwise, or, at least, dont have
transparency and multistakeholder participation as high priorities on this
forum. Btw, in a workshop last year in Nairobi, the US representative said
textually that the US did not believe that ITU should follow the
multistakeholder model. Someone who saw the US yesterday, in the meeting
about enhanced cooperation, ardently talking about the importance of MSism
would never imagine...

I mentioned this incoherence yesterday and made a direct reference in my
intervention about enhanced cooperation to the need to open the WCIT
