Subject: Comments on DNS Transition, Docket No. 060519136-6136-01
Santiago of Chile, July 6, 2006
Ms. Fiona Alexander
Office of International Affairs
National Telecommunications and Information Administration.
We appreciate the opportunity to make comments about
your Notice of
Inquiry, and our opinion is as follows:
We strongly support the internationalized multi-stakeholder
model. And we certainly, do not support any models subordinated
specific government or governments.
We expect to see the next stage of the ICANN transition
conclusion of the current MoU this year.
ICANN should continue its evolution and, in our view,
organizationally and financially stable and mature.
ICANN must improve its internationalization. Having
regional liaisons is
just the first step. It's needed to foster regional participation
all the stakeholders in every region to strengthen ICANN
It is important to further internationalize ICANN, particularly
it less captive of the rules of only one jurisdiction.
The US government
needs to lessen its perceived and actual influence on
operations of ICANN and its role with the DNS, especially
Furthermore, ICANN must encourage Governments participation
