The instrument of accession to the Treaty by Madagascar (formerly the Malagasy Republic) contains a statement, an English translation of which reads as follows:
“The Government of the Malagasy Republic understands that the provisions of Article 10 may in no way affect the principle of the national sovereignty of the State, which shall retain its freedom of decision with respect to the possible installation of foreign observation bases in its territory and shall continue to possess the right to fix, in each case, the conditions for such installation.”
