The Government of Turkey, while ratifying the European Convention on the Transfer of Proceedings in Criminal Matters, declares that it does not consider itself bound to carry out the provisions of the said Convention in relation to the Greek Cypriot Administration, which is not constitutionally entitled to represent alone the Republic of Cyprus.

[Note by the Secretariat: The Notification of the above reservation mentioned the Decision taken by the Committee of Ministers in February 1976, at the 254th meeting of the Ministers' Deputies. This Decision concerns an identical reservation, made by the Turkish Government when ratifying seven conventions and agreements on 19 December 1975, and reads as follows :

"The Deputies,
In the light of the foregoing discussion, and referring solely to the procedural aspects of the deposit of the seven instruments of ratification,
Considered that the Secretary General should proceed, with effect from 19 December 1975 to the registration of these instruments of ratification as presented by the Permanent Representative of Turkey by letters dated 19 December 1975 and notify the Governments of member States thereof, it being understood that the registration of reservations by the Secretary General has no effect on their validity.
The above decision will in no way affect the position of the Government of the Republic of Cyprus in the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe."]
