Depositary Government of the United States of America
Date 10 February 1995

The Argentine instrument of accession contains declarations, an unofficial translation of which reads as follows:
“1.  Argentina firmly supports the total elimination of weapons of mass destruction, thereby resolving the problem of assymetry or imbalance existing with regard to non-nuclear weapons countries that have renounced the possession thereof.
“2.  The provisions of the NPT, which shall be the subject of a Review and Extension Conference in April 1995, must not be interpreted as impeding present cooperation between Argentina and the organs of the United Nations or the OAS, or with other UN member States signatories to the Full Safeguards Accords in effect with the IAEA, in a series of exclusively peaceful nuclear activities also fully subject to the IAEA system of international safeguards.
“3.  Similarly, Argentina’s bilateral or multilateral cooperation with other Latin American States of the region must not be affected with respect to the exclusively peaceful use of nuclear energy carried out in accordance with the obligations assumed under the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean (the Tlatelolco Treaty) and with the provisions of the NPT, it being understood that these two agreements are instruments that include the promotion of the exclusively peaceful use of nuclear energy.”
