Note
In a communication dated 14 February 1967 sent to all States recognised by the United Kingdom, Her Majesty's Government recalled their view that if a regime is not recognised as the Government of a State, neither signature nor the deposit of any instrument by it, nor notification of any of those acts will bring about the recognition of that regime by any other State. At the time of ratification the Government of the United Kingdom declared that "this Treaty will not be applicable in regard to Southern Rhodesia unless and until the Government of the United Kingdom informs the other depository Governments that it is in a position to ensure that the obligations imposed by the Treaty in respect of that territory can be fully implemented."
