Pending a decision by the United Nations upon the future administration of the territories, the territories shall continue under their present administration.


(To be issued separately from the Treaty by Allied and Associated Powers.)

The Allied and Associated Powers hereby declare that they will accept the decision of the General Assembly of the United Nations as to the future administration of the former Italian territorial possessions, and express their view that such decision should accord with the recommendations of the Trusteeship Council.
