The Communit.y has, not yet d.eposited the instruments of conclusion by the Cor:ncil. of the 19?d Protocol extending r::ntil 3O June 19?9 the fnternational lJheat Agreementr 19?1, and the 19?9 Protocol ertending the sarne Agreement until 30 Jr:ne 1980, because one Member State had" not d.epositetJ. its instrunents of ratlfication of the said ProtocolB. il. Since ltaly has now fuLfilled its obligations'(a11 the otber l,iember States had alreadlr done so), there is no J.onger any obstacle to the conclusion by the .

Nevertheless, the Comnission takes the view that the Community as such can {t conclude this Protocol as well since the proced.ures for ratification by lta1y are alread.y und.er way and. no prob).ems of subetance are likely to be encowrtered.
