The following table of group positions wants to give a concise overview of the respective group’s main positions as expressed in the course of the reform discussions. The table does not take account of every detail of a group’s views; it also does not reveal every alteration to these views. The table rather indicates the general views held by a group of states. If a particular group changed significantly its views in the course of the debate, the most recent position was described in the table. The respective group was marked with an asterisk *. In that case, the reader may wish to consult the summaries of positions in Annex I to find information of how the respective views changed.
