Your Excellency,

With reference to the Treaty on Cooperation in the Execution of Penal Sentences signed January 5, 1983, between the Government of the Kingdom of Thailand and the Government of Canada, I have the honour, upon the instruction of my Government, to propose that Article VIII, paragraph 1, of the said Treaty be amended so as to allow for the exchange of instruments of ratification to take place in Bangkok. Article VIII, paragraph I will read as follows:

"Article VIII

This Treaty shall be subject to ratification and shall enter into force on the date on which instruments of ratification are exchanged. This exchange of instruments of ratification shall take place at Bangkok as soon as possible."

If the foregoing proposal is acceptable to the Government of Thailand, I have the further honour to propose that the present Note and Your Excellency's reply to that effect constitute an agreement between our two Governments in this matter and that the said agreement shall enter into force on the day after the date of Your Excellency's Note in reply.
