Objection Germany, 20-06-1991
The Federal Republic of Germany rejects the reservation made by the Republic of Bulgaria with regard to article 66, paragraph 2 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties between States and International Organizations or between International Organizations as incompatible with the object and purpose of the said Convention. In this connection it wishes to point out that the Federal Republic of Germany considers articles 53 and 64 of the Convention, on the one hand, and article 66, paragraph 2, on the other, to be inextricably linked
... Where parties formulate reservations or partial reserva- tions with respect to the provisions of article 66 of the Convention concerning the obligatory settlement of certain disputes, Denmark does not consider itself bound by the provisions of Part V of the Convention whereby the procedures for settlement set forth in article 66 shall not be applied if reservations have been formulated by other parties.
1. The Federal Republic of Germany presumes that the juris- diction of the International
Court of Justice brought about by consent of States outside the [said] Convention
cannot be excluded by invoking the provisions of article 66, paragraph 4 of the Convention.
2. The Federal Republic of Germany interprets "measures taken in conformity with the Charter of the United Nations" as referred to in article 76 of the [said] Convention to mean decisions taken in future by the United Nations Security Council in conformity with Chapter VII of the Charter on the maintenance of international peace and security.
Netherlands, the Kingdom of the
The Kingdom of the Netherlands does not regard the provisions of article 66 (b), (c)
and (d) of the Convention as providing `some other method of peaceful settlement'
within the meaning of the declaration of the Kingdom of the Netherlands accepting
as compulsory the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice which was deposited
with the Secretary-General of the United Nations on 1 August 1956;
The Kingdom of the Netherlands is of the opinion that the provisions regarding the settlement of disputes, as laid down in article 66 of the Convention, are an important part of the Convention and that they cannot be separated from the substantive rules with which they are connected.
In signing this Convention, [the Government of Senegal de- clares] that the completion of this formality shall not be inter- preted in so far as Senegal is concerned as a recognition of the right of international organizations to appear as parties before the International Court of Justice.
