In approving the Amendments to the Convention for the Protection of the Mediterranean Sea against Pollution of 10 June 1995, the Government of the French Republic wishes to recall the reservation it expressed at the time of the approval of the initial instruments, which reads as follows:

Should the provisions of the present Convention and of the protocols thereto be considered as hindering activities which it deems to be essential to its national defence, the Government will not apply the said provisions to such activities. However, by adopting appropriate measures, the Government shall endeavour to take account of the objectives of the Convention and of the protocols thereto as far as possible.
