Comments of the Syrian Telecommunication Establishment (Syrian Arab Republic)
on the Memorandum of Understanding

Thank you for your letter Ref: SPU/EA/KB/ml dated 3 December 1996.

After reviewing the proposed draft of the MoU to facilitate the free circulation of Global Mobile Personal Communications by Satellite user terminals (GMPCS-MoU), we have the following comments:

1) There should be an article in the MoU referring to the necessity of having the approval of the visited country on using the terminal in order to protect the laws of such a country.

2) The type approval should be, as much as possible, a unified form.

3) STE is in agreement in principle with the proposed draft, but we should have an idea about the comments of other parties before beginning the work on agreements as specified in the articles of the proposed MoU.

We hope all success for all parties, with our best wishes for a happy New Year.
