APPENDIX J

VERY SHORT­TERM SITES

Draft Exchange of Notes between the Representative of the United Kingdom authorised to sign the Treaty of Establishment and Archbishop Makarios and Dr. Kutchuk

A.-Draft Note to Archbishop Makarios and Dr. Kutchuk Your Excellencies,

I have the honour to refer to the Treaty concerning the Establishment of the Republic of Cyprus of to­day's date. In the course of the negotiations leading up to that Treaty, it became clear that the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland would require the use of three Sites not referred to in that Treaty for a very short period after it had come into force; these Sites, of which detailed plans* are attached to this Note, are located as follows:-

L.1. To the west of Nicosia. L.2. At Nicosia. L.3. On the coast south of Famagusta.

1 have the honour accordingly to propose that the Government of the United Kingdom shall continue to use these Sites for a period not exceeding six months after the date of entry into force of the Treaty, and that until the end of that period or until the Government of the United Kingdom notify the Government of the Republic of Cyprus that they no longer wish to use those Sites, whichever is the sooner, they shall be regarded as if they were " Sites " listed in Schedule B to Part II of Annex B to the Treaty, and the Treaty, including the Annexes to it, shall apply to them as it applies to the other Sites listed in that Schedule.

2. I have the honour to suggest that, if these proposals are acceptable to the Government of the Republic of Cyprus, this Note, together with your reply to that effect, shall be regarded as constituting an agreement in this matter between the Government of the United Kingdom and the Government of the Republic of Cyprus which shall enter into force on to­day's date.

B.-Draft Reply by Archbishop Makarios and Dr. Kutchuk Your Excellency,

We have the honour to acknowledge receipt of your Note of to­day's date which reads as follows:

[text as above]

2. Copies of the plans attached to your Note are also attached hereto.

3. The proposals set out in that Note are acceptable to the Government of the Republic of Cyprus and we have the honour therefore to confirm that your Note. together with this reply, shall constitute an agreement accordingly.

* Not printed.
