We will not support any effort to broaden the scope of the ITRs to
facilitate any censorship of content or blocking the free flow of
information and ideas," Ambassador Kramer said. "The United States also
believes that the existing multi-stakeholder institutions, incorporating
industry and civil society, have functioned effectively and will continue
to ensure the health and growth of the Internet and all of its benefits."
The U.S. will formally constitute its official WCIT delegation in
mid-September. It will be comprised of experts from U.S. government
agencies and the private sector, including industry and civil society. This
reflects the multi-stakeholder approach that has been a hallmark of
Internet development and governance. Ambassador Kramer will carry out an
extensive schedule of bilateral meetings with his counterparts from other
nations around the world. Additional proposals will be submitted prior to
the WCIT, as governments finalize their positions and proposals.
