CROWN PROPERTIES IN THE SOVEREIGN BASE AREAS

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, with reference to Sections 1 and 4 of Annex E to the Treaty concerning the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus of to­day's date, to propose that:

(a) the properties in the Akrotiri Sovereign Base Area and in the Dhekelia Sovereign Base Area, described in the Schedule attached to this Note and indicated on the plans annexed thereto, shall be transferred to the Republic of Cyprus and the necessary legal steps to effect their transfer in accordance with the law in force in the said areas shall be taken as soon as possible;

(b) subject to the military requirements and security needs of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and provided that any actual expenditure incurred by the Government of the United Kingdom in acquiring any private land is reimbursed to the Government of the United Kingdom, sympathetic consideration shall be given to any request from the Government of the Republic of Cyprus for transfer to the Republic of the property within those areas in which archaeological remains of public interest are in future discovered; and

(c) where property is transferred to the Republic of Cyprus under the proposals contained in this Note, rights of access to be agreed shall be granted in connexion with the property concerned.

2. I have the honour further to propose that the Republic of Cyprus shall have the sole right to use and develop the salt lake at Akrotiri for economic, commercial, industrial and all other civilian purposes; this right shall not be in any way limited except in so far as is necessary for the military requirements and security needs of the United Kingdom.

3. I have the honour to suggest that if the above 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 of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Government of the Republic of Cyprus which shall enter into force on to­day's date.
