Happy ending at UNCTAD XIII

Or at least for now, is what Deborah James says. Note that the contentious paragraph on UNCTAD's mandate that the US State Department didn't like reads tha UNCTAD would:
"continue, as a contribution to the work of the UN, research and analysis on the prospects of, and impact on, developing countries in matters of trade and development, in light of the global economic and financial crisis."
Yep, that is unacceptable indeed. After all you ask, what crisis?
