A. Introduction
2.
The Committee welcomes the third periodic report of Chile, due in 1997, which was
prepared in accordance with the Committee’s guidelines, but regrets the lateness in submission
of the report.
3.
The Committee welcomes the supplementary information provided by the State party and
the extensive and constructive written and oral replies to the questions posed by the Committee
both prior to and during the session. The Committee also appreciates the large and highly
qualified delegation of representatives that was present for the consideration of the report, and
the full and in-depth discussion of the obligations under the Convention that their presence
facilitated.
