> As promised I am writing to inform you that earlier today the UN GA at the
> High Level WSIS + 10 review meeting unanimously decided to extend the
> mandate of IGF as defined in para 72 of the Tunis agenda for the next 10
> years.
> The adopted text suggest the following:
> *68.
> We acknowledge the role of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) as a multistakeholder
> platform for discussion of Internet governance issues.  We support the recommendations of
> the report of the CSTD Working Group on improvements to the IGF, which were taken note
> of by the General Assembly in its resolution 68/198, and we call for their accelerated
> implementation. We extend the IGF mandate for another 10 years with its current mandate
> as set out in paragraph 72 to 78 of the Tunis Agenda for the Information Society. We
> recognize that during this period, the IGF should continue to show progress on working
> modalities, and participation of relevant stakeholders from developing countries.  We call on
> the CSTD, within its current reporting, to give due consideration to fulfilment of its Working
> Group report recommendations. *
> I would like to use this opportunity and thank all of you for your hard
> work and dedication to the IGF. All of you contributed towards this
> decision of the General Assembly. You should be proud of your achievement.
> Remaining yours
