The Hague, June 11, 1964.
With reference to the Agreement between the Government of the Netherlands and the Government of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic relating to the settlement of financial matters signed today, I have the honour to state that it was understood that the sum mentioned in paragraph 1 of Article 1 of this Agreement should include compensation for property, rights and interests affected by Czechoslovak measures of nationalisation, confiscation, expropriation or other similar measures also in such cases in which, in particular by reason of special circumstances prevailing before and during the last war, property, rights and interests were held by physical or juridical persons other than Netherlands persons, for account and risk of Netherlands physical or juridical persons, and inasmuch as such claims for compensation are not covered by an agreement between Czechoslovakia and a third country.
I shall appreciate your confirmation of the above understanding.
Accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
(sd.) J. LUNS
His Excellency Dr. Ladislav Žilka,
Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary
of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic
