Yearbook of the United Nations, 2001. Part 4, Legal questions. Chapter 5, Other legal questions
The Special Committee on the Charter of the United Nations and on the Strengthening of the Role of the Organization continued in 2001 to consider, among its other standing agenda items, proposals relating to the maintenance of international peace and security in order to strengthen the Organization and, as a priority, the implementation of Charter provisions on assistance to third States affected by the application of sanctions under Chapter VII. In that connection, the Security Council, in October, discussed general issues relating to sanctions aimed at, not only improving the effectiveness of UN sanctions, but also reducing their negative effects on civilian populations and on third States. The Committee on Relations with the Host Country continued to address complaints raised by permanent missions to the United Nations relating to the maintenance of conditions for the proper functioning of those missions. The General Assembly requested the host country (the United States) to consider, among other measures, removing travel controls on permanent mission and Secretariat staff of certain nationalities, issuing entry visas in a timely manner to representatives of Member States for the purpose of attending UN official meetings and taking steps to resolve the problem relating to the parking of diplomatic vehicles. During the year, two instruments emanated from the continuing work of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) aimed at the global unification and harmonization of international trade law: the draft Convention on the Assignment of Receivables in International Trade; and the UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Signatures, together with the Guide to Enactment of the Model Law. On 12 December, the Assembly took note of UNCITRAL's completion and adoption of those instruments, recommended that all States give favourable consideration to the Model Law and Guide to Enactment when enacting or revising their laws, and adopted and opened the Convention for signature or accession. In other action, the Assembly, concerned at the recently disclosed information on ongoing research into the reproductive cloning of human beings, established an ad hoc committee to consider the elaboration of an international convention against such cloning.
