Agreement On Measures

The second and third rounds of negotiations took place in Geneva on 1 and 3 June. On 6 July, at a bilateral meeting in Moscow, Presidents Obama and Medvedev signed a joint agreement to lead the negotiations by committing their countries to reach ranges of 1,500 to 1,675 for strategic warheads and 500-1,100 for strategic delivery vehicles, and a contract with effective verification measures drawn from start I`s experience. the differences and relationships between reliability and agreement parameters for continuous variables are illustrated. The new safeguards can only be implemented after an investigation by the relevant authorities in accordance with the previously published procedures. Although the agreement does not include detailed procedural requirements, it does require appropriate public disclosure of the investigation and that of interested parties (importers, exporters, manufacturers, etc.) There is an opportunity to present their views and to react to the views of others. Whether or not a protective measure is in the public interest is a matter on which the opinion must be gathered. The competent authorities are required to publish a report in which they set out and explain their conclusions on all relevant issues, including evidence of the relevance of the factors examined. The agreement also contains specific rules for the handling of confidential information in the context of an investigation. The Secretary-General`s enterprise agreement was widely negotiated due to the increasing application by gaTT contracting parties of a large number of so-called “shadow zones” measures (voluntary bilateral export restrictions, ordered marketing agreements and similar measures) to limit imports of certain products. These measures were not imposed under Article XIX and are therefore not subject to the multilateral discipline of the GATT and the legality of these measures under the GATT was questionable. The agreement now clearly prohibits these measures and contains specific provisions to eliminate the measures in force when the WTO agreement came into force. In October 2008, the United States and Russia met with representatives of Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan in the Joint Compliance and Implementation Commission (JCIC), but were not prepared to extend START I.
