Depositary Government of the United Kingdom
Date 3 September 1974


The Italian Government naturally hope that, as foreseen in Article V of the Treaty, it will be possible to continue in good faith negotiations on further measures in the field of disarmament to prevent an arms race on the seabed and ocean floor and in their subsoil.  They believe that, in the case of future agreements on such further measures, the question of the delimitation of the area within which these would find application, shall have to be examined and solved in each instance in relation to the nature of the measures envisaged.
