XNoot
1)

Op 26 september 1997 heeft Trinidad en Tobago de depositaris medegedeeld dat de opzegging, die per 29 september 1997 geëffectueerd zou worden, is opgeschort.

Verklaringen, voorbehouden en bezwaren

Cuba, 15 november 1977

The Government of the Republic of Cuba considers that, although the Agreement deals with matters affecting the interests of all States, the provisions of article 3, section 1, are discriminatory in nature since they deprive a number of States of the right to sign and accede to the Agreement, contrary to the principle of universality.

The Government of the Republic of Cuba wishes to make an express reservation to article 11, section 2, of the Agreement, since it feels that any disputes arising between States, or between States and the Fund, concerning the interpretation or application of the Agreement should be resolved through direct negotiations by diplomatic means.

Frankrijk, 12 december 1977

In depositing its instrument of approval, the Government of the French Republic declares, in accordance with the provisions of section of article 13, that it will not accpet, in so far as it is concerned, the application of the procedure provided for in section 2 of article 11 whereby a party may request the President of the International Court of Justice to appoint an arbitrator.

Guatemala, 30 november 1978

The de facto relations which may arise between Guatemala and Belize as a result of the latter’s accession to the Agreement should not in any way be construed as a recognition on the part of Guatemala of the sovereignty and independence of that territory, which were unilaterally declared by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Irak, 13 december 1977

Entry into the […] Agreement by the Republic of Iraq shall, however, in no way signify recognition of Israel or be conducive to entry into any relations with it.

Koeweit, 29 juli 1977

It is understood that the ratification by the State of Kuwait of the Agreement Establishing the International Fund for Agricultural Development, signed by the State of Kuwait on 4 March, 1977, does not mean in any way recognition of Israel by the State of Kuwait. Furthermore, no treaty relations will arise between the State of Kuwait and Israel.

Roemenië, 25 november 1977

The interpretation and application of the provisions of the Agreement establishing the International Fund for Agricultural Development, including those relating to voting procedures, and all activities of IFAD must take place on a democratic basis, in accordance with the purpose for which the Fund was established, namely, to assist the developing countries in their efforts to develop their agriculture.

The Socialist Republic of Romania declares, pursuant to the provisions of article 13, section 4, of the Agreement establishing the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), concluded at Rome on 13 June 1976, that it does not consider itself bound by the provisions of article 11, section 2, of the Agreement.

The Socialist Republic of Romania considers that disputes between the Fund and a State which has ceased to be a member, or between the Fund and one of the members upon the termination of the Fund’s operations, can be submitted to arbitration only with the consent of all parties to the dispute in each individual case.

Saudi-Arabië, 5 juli 1977

The participation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the Agreement shall in no way imply recognition of Israel and shall not lead to entry into dealings with Israel under this Agreement.

Syrië, 29 november 1978

It is understood that the ratification of this Agreement by the Syrian Arab Republic does not mean in any way recognition of Israel by the Syrian Arab Republic. Furthermore, no treaty relations will arise between the Syrian Arab Republic and Israel.

Bezwaar door Israël, 24 januari 1979

The instrument deposited by the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic contains a statement of a political character in respect to Israel. In the view of the Government of Israel, this is not the proper place for making such political pronouncements, which are moreover in flagrant contradiction to the principles, objects and purposes of the Organization. That pronouncement by the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic cannot in any way affect whatever obligations are binding upon it under general international law or under particular treaties.

The Government of Israel will, insofar as concerns the substance of the matter, adopt towards the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic an attitude of complete reciprocity.

Venezuela, 13 oktober 1977

Since the procedure established for the settlement of disputes arising in connection with the application or interpretation of this Agreement is incompatible with Venezuela legislation, Venezuela expresses a specific reservation concerning article 11, section 2.

Verenigd Koninkrijk, het, 9 september 1977

The Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland [notifies the Secretary-General] in accordance with article 10, section 2 (b) (ii) of the Agreement, that the standard clauses of the Convention on the privileges and immunities of the specialized agencies shall apply to the Fund in the United Kingdom, subject to the following modifications:

  • 1. The following shall be substituted for section 4:

    • (1) The Fund shall have immunity from jurisdiction and execution except:

      • a) to the extent that it shall, by a decision of the Executive Board, have waived such immunity in a particular case.
