Quadripartite Agreement

Quadripartite Agreement

A Quadripartite Agreement is a treaty between four states or four commercial parties.

The most famous Quadripartite Agreement is that of the Four Power Agreement on Berlin of 3 September 1971 between the United States, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and France.

In Rome on 7 June 1933, France Britain, Italy and Germany sign the Quadripartite Pact of Guarantee proposed by Mussolini, a reinvigoration of the Locarno Pact. Germany,Italy and Britain ratified the treaty but France did not and prevented it coming into force. [ R.H.

In 1947, Britain, the United States, Canada, and Australia signed the Quadripartite Agreement or Quadripartite Pact as a follow on from World War II cooperation on intelligence matters. [Joan Coxsedge [Dangerous new powers "to counter terrorism"] The Guardian, 12 December, 2001, copy on the website of the Communist Party of Australia.] This was a secret treaty, allegedly so secret that it was kept secret from the Australian Prime Ministers until 1973. [ [http://www.williambowles.info/spysrus/cia_australia.html Australian House of Representatives Novemeber 20, 198 6] , copy on website of [http://www.williambowles.info www.williambowles.info] ] The treaty gave each nation access to almost all of the intelligence gathered by the others, especially signals intelligence. This was of great advantage to Canada and Australia, which did not have the infrastructure to gather much of their own intelligence. While the raw intelligence is shared, each nation insists on doing its own analyses, and sometimes different nations would come to different conclusions based on the same data. It was superseded by the UKUSA agreement.

In 2003 a Quadripartite agreement was made between Central Bohemia, Opole, Burgundy and Rhineland Palatinate that gave rise to many activities such as a Students European Contest created in 2005, or the students literary prize.Fact|date=September 2008
