Conference/NPT/Assessment

The Secretary-General of the United Nations presents his
compliments to the Permanent Representative of the United
States of America to the United Nations and has the honour to
present the total costs of the third session of the
Preparatory Committee and request the advance payment
required for the 2010 NPT review Conference of the Parties of
the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and
its Preparatory Committee.

Costs of the Third Session of the Preparatory Committee
-------------- --------------

Attached herewith is the provisional financial statement
covering costs related to the third session of the
Preparatory Committee which took place 4-15 May 2009.

With respect to the division of costs, and based on your
Government's assessed share of 32.82 percent of the total
revised expenditures of $1,306,320, the contribution of your
Excellency's Government to the Third Session of the
Preparatory Committee is $428,734.

After applying your Government's advance payment of $338,541
plus the credit from the Second Session of the Preparatory
Committee of $149,332, there is a credit of $59,139 which
will be applied to the 2010 NPT Review Conference.

Advance Requirements of the
2010 NPT Review Conference
--------------

The 2010 NPT Review Conference is scheduled to be held in New
York from 3 to 28 May 2010. As costs related to the meeting
cannot have any financial implications for the regular budget
of the United Nations, sufficient fund for the 2010 NPT
Review Conference will need to be received from States
Parties well in advance.

With respect to the division of costs, and based on the
assessed share of 32.82 percent of the projected cost of
$3,986,00, the contribution of your Excellency's Government
towards the 2010 NPT Review Conference will be $1,308,500.

As your Government has a credit of US $59,139, the estimated
advance payment due the UN Secretariat for the third session
of the Preparatory Committee is $1,249,361.

Payment Due to the UN Secretariat
--------------

In order to ensure that full payment is received for the 2010
NPT Review Conference and for any outstanding balances, the
Secretary General gratefully requests payment of your
Government's contribution of $1,249,361 no later than 31
December 2009.

Payment to the below Bank Account should be made as soon as
possible but no later than the due date above so that the
Secretariat will be able to ensure that the meeting will be
able to take place on time and as planned by the Preparatory
Committees.

Decision Adopted by the Third Session
of the Preparatory Committee
--------------

accountability and taking into account the practice of
multilateral and other organizations, the Committee has
requested that the Secretary-General of the United Nations
provide a financial report to the 2010 NPT Review Conference
and each session of its Preparatory Committee to be
circulated as an official document. The report will show the
current account status of the each Party to the treaty on the
Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons listing credits and/or

The Secretary-General avails himself of this opportunity to
renew to the Permanent Representative the assurances of his
highest consideration.
