The report of the Secretary-General clearly shows the widespread application of the articles by international courts. (...) Subjecting the articles on State responsibility to negotiations at an intergovernmental conference (or at the General Assembly) after almost two decades of widespread application, would entail a risk of galvanizing still existing divergences and differences of views, as demonstrated e.g. in the Secretary General´s report of comments received by Governments or even already during this session of the Sixth Committee. This, as well as a risk of opening tough substantive discussions on their carefully drafted text would necessarily lead to jeopardizing their current level of acceptance and status as the relevant body of law in this field of international law. For these reasons, Slovakia does not favor elaborating a convention on the basis of the articles on State responsibility.
