Declarations, Reservations etc.

Reservation made upon accession:
"The Government of the Republic of Zambia states that it reserves the right to postpone the application of article 13(2)(a) of the Covenant, in so far as it relates to primary education; since, while the Government of the Republic of Zambia fully accepts the principles embodied in the same article and undertakes to take the necessary steps to apply them in their entirety, the problems of implementation, and particularly the financial implications, are such that full application of the principles in question cannot be guaranteed at this stage."
