Chapter Summary

According to paragraph 1 of Article 17, the Convention is open for signature by any State Member of the United Nations or member of any of its specialized agencies, by any State Party to the Statute of the International Court of Justice, and by any other State which has been invited by the General Assembly to become a party to this Convention. Paragraph 2 says that the Convention is subject to ratification. Instruments of ratification shall be deposited with the Secretary-General. The text finally adopted follows closely the one submitted to the Third Committee by its Officers, who had before them seven alternative clauses suggested in the working paper prepared by the Secretary-General. Poland, considering that it was legally not justified in limiting participation in the Convention only to those States mentioned in paragraph 1, proposed to replace it by a text opening the Convention for signature "by all States".
