Assyrian Universal Alliance (AUA Americas) granted United Nations Special Consultative Status
by Assyrian Universal Alliance (AUA). Press Release, June 3, 2013.

NEW YORK, New York — On Thursday, May 23rd, the United Nations Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO Committee) recommended the Assyrian Universal Alliance — Americas Chapter, Inc. (AUA Americas) for Special Consultative Status. The recommendation came during the Committee's 2013 Resumed Session convened May 20-29 at the UN Headquarters in New York.

AUA Americas joins over 3,000 other non-governmental organizations currently in Consultative Status, including the Assyrian Aid Society — Iraq (AAS-I), which received Special Consultative Status in 2011.

The status expands ongoing Assyrian advocacy efforts by permitting AUA Americas access to participate in UN meetings, to submit written reports and to issue oral interventions at various UN sponsored events open to NGO participation. AUA Americas' past UN advocacy efforts include participation in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Forum on Minority Issues hosted at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland.

AUA Americas extends its gratitude to AUA Foundation for their generosity throughout the application process and to various delegates of UN Member States, including Dr. William Ishaya Odisho Deputy Permanent Representative of Iraq to the UN in New York, for their continued support and encouragement.

The NGO Committee's Recommendations for Consultative Status are submitted to the UN's Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for formal adoption during ECOSOC's July session.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb

Aramaic \ar-é-'máik\ n (1998)   1:  a Semitic language which became the lingua franca of the Middle East during the ancient Assyrian empire.   2:  has been referred to as Neo-Aramaic, Neo-Syriac, Classical Syriac, Syriac, Suryoyo, Swadaya and Turoyo.
