Accession by New Zealand to the First Protocol to the Hague Convention of 1954 for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict (La Haye, 14 mai 1954)

On 17 October 2013, New Zealand deposited with the Director-General its instrument of accession to the First Protocol to the Hague Convention of 1954 for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict.
The instrument contained the following declaration:

“[…] DECLARES that, consistent with the constitutional status of Tokelau and taking into account the commitment of the Government of New Zealand to the development of self-government for Tokelau through an act of self-determination under the Charter of the United Nations, this accession shall not extend to Tokelau unless and until a Declaration to this effect is lodged by the Government of New Zealand with the depositary on the basis of appropriate consultation with that territory;” [Original: English].

In accordance with the terms of Article 10(b), the First Protocol will enter into force with respect to New Zealand three months after the deposit of the instrument of accession, that is to say on 17 January 2014.
