1961, 26 FR 7315, 75 Stat. 840, as amended by P.L. 88–426, August 14, 1964, 78: Stat. 425.

(b) Agreements.–1. 1968.—1 TIAS 6559 (Brazil). Canada-sewage disposal system

Note: In this exchange of notes the United States requested, and Canada granted, approval for the United States Government to construct a sewage line to connect the United States border station at Dunseith, North Dakota, to the sewage disposal system owned by Canada on the Canadian side of the border. Approval to construct the line was sought because the sewage disposal system at Dunseith was inadequate and local soil conditions made enlarging it prohibitively expensive.

(b) Agreements.-1. 1966.-1. TIAS 6037 (Canada). Canada-trade and economic policy-joint committee

Note: TIAS 2922 merely designates a joint committee consisting of the United States Secretaries of State, Treasury, Agriculture, and Commerce and their Canadian counterparts, such committee to meet once a year or more often, as necessary, to consider matters affecting harmonious economic relations and to exchange information and views. The committee is to report to the respective Governments so that consideration may be given to measures to improve relations and encourage the flow of trade. The 1961 agreement in TIAS 5118 modifies the 1953 agreement by including the Secreatry of the Interior on the United States membership of the United States-Canadian Committee on Trade and Economic Affairs on a permanent basis due to the "great and growing interest in matters concerned with the development and exchange of energy resources". The agreement provides for consultation and cooperation between the two countries in this field. The 1963 agreement in TIAS 5448 modities the 1953 agreement by including the Canadian Minister of Industry on the Committee on a permanent basis.

Australia will pay to France the net proceeds from disposition of cargo unloaded in Australia. Payments made as to claims of United States citizens will be paid by France in United States dollars.

(b) Agreements.—1. 1948.–1. TIAS 1816 (France and Australia). Claimssinking of Awa Maru-Japanese waiver

Note: While acknowledging United States Government responsibility for the sinking of the Japanese passenger-cargo vessel AWA MARU on April 1, 1945, and expressing regret, the agreement provides that the Japanese Government “waives on behalf of itself and all Japanese nationals concerned all claims of any description against the United States Government or any United States national arising out of the sinking of the Awa Maru. This waiver is given by Japan “mindful of the equities of the situation as they have developed since the inception of the occupation of Japan under General of the Army Douglas MacArthur and in appreciation of the assistance—direct and indirect, in goods and services-received during the post-surrender period from the Government of the United States of America”. This waiver by Japan is accompanied by an understanding that occupation costs and loans and credits extended to Japan by the United States are valid debts owed by Japan, reducible only by United States decision. In Article 19 of the Treaty of Peace (TIAS 2490), Japan waived all claims arising out of the war and occupation.

(b) Agreements.-1. 1919.-1. TIAS 1915 (Multilateral: France, United Kingdom, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics). Haiti-external debt-payments on outstanding bonds

Note: These agreements were part of a series formalizing procedures by which Ilaiti would liquidate its external debt, especially as to bonds held by United States citizens. Agreements continued from year to year an arrangement whereby all receipts of Haiti would be deposited in a Bank which would make payments provided for by loan contracts of 1922 and 1923 and whereby Haiti agreed to pay a specified sum on account of amounts required to be paid under those contracts for amortization, the United States at length agreeing to the floating of an internal loan by the Haitian Government for redemption of the bonds. The history goes back to the situation that led to the Treaty of 1915 with Haiti (TS 623, 39 Stat. 1654), which expired on May 3. 1936, and under which the United States undertook to assist Haiti in remedr. ing condition of its revenues and finances and in carrying out plans for economie development of Haiti. Beginning in 1933, the United States and Haiti entered into agreements extending and modifying on a year-to-year basis the arrangements for placing Haitian fiscal functions on a sound base and ensuring continuance of efficient procedures for final settlement of the Haitian debt under the loan contracts.

(b) Agreements.--1., 1964.-1. TIAS 6239 (Italy). Treaticsterritorial application~dependencies and new states

Note: It has long been recognized that many treaties and other international agreements which have been applied in accordance with their terms to dependent territories may be considered as continuing to apply to such territories upon their emergence to independence as new states, subject in most instances to the acceptance, tacit or otherwise, of such continuation by the parties concerned (e.g., the United States and the new states). The same situation has existed where a federated dependent territory has been divided into two or more dependent territories (as in the case of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, which became Southern Rhodesia, Northern Rhodesia, and Nyasaland). In some cases, it has been considered expedient to exchange diplomatic communications in which the understanding is confirmed with respect to the continuing application. With respect to certain treaties between the United States and the United Kingdom, there have been exchanges of communications with Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, and Tanzania, and also an exchange of communications with the United Kingdom in regard to Southern Rhodesia, Northern Rhodesia, and Nyasaland. With respect to certain treaties between the United States and France, there has been an exchange of communications with the Republic of the Congo, Brazzaville. These exchanges do not involve any new commitment.

Note: In a few instances, texts of treaties as prepared for signature have contained errors of a typographical character. In the cases of bilateral treat

ies, it has been possible for the United States and the other country concerned to exchange notes confirming the understanding with respect to the correction of the errors. In the case of a multilateral treaty, a "procès verbal of rectification" of similar document was adopted. With respect to the 1951 security treaty with Japan and the 1952 administrative agreement under Article III of that treaty, the United States and Japan exchanged notes in 1957 to confirm the understanding that they “were so drafted as to be fully compatible with the obligations contained in the United Nations Charter" and were to be so interpreted. The treaties to which references are made below, in the order in which listed, are :

Estate-tax convention of February 20, 1950 with Greece, TIAS 2001, 5 UST 12;

Viet Nam-income-tax administration

Note: This agreement relates to certain aspects of Viet Nam income-tax administration as it affects the liability of United States Government employees in Viet Nam. It recognizes certain principles, including the personal responsibility of all citizens to meet their tax obligations to their own government, the legal inapplicability of Viet Nam's tax-withholding requirements to foreign diplomatic missions, and the absence of authority under United States law for the United States Government compulsorily to withhold amounts from compensation of its employees for settlement of their tax obligations to Viet Nam. The agreement then establis es a procedure whereby the United States will, "within the limits of United States law,” cooperate in facilitating payment by its "liable employees” of their tax obligations to Viet Nam. An allotment system is established whereby, on a wholly voluntary basis, United States Govern. ment employees liable for Viet Nam income tax may make biweekly allotments from their compensation and permit the United States Government to remit the allotted sums to the Viet Nam Government. Determination of taxes due and either settlements of liability in addition to allotted sums or refunds for overpayments “will be a matter between the individual employee/taxpayer and the Government of Viet Nam."
