The Parties, referring to the Treaty Between the United
States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
on the Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms
of July 31, 1991, hereinafter referred to as the Treaty,
understand that, during data update inspections or conversion
or elimination inspections, first stages of SS-25 ICBMs that

fuel removed by burning the stages without their nozzles
attached, may be located at conversion or elimination
facilities of ICBMs.

The Parties understand that the photographs of the first
stage of an SS-25 ICBM, burned without nozzle attached, and
declared data on the length of such a first stage, which were
provided to the other Parties by the Russian Federation at
JCIC-XXVII, may be used by the inspecting Party during data
update inspections or conversion or elimination inspections
only for the purpose of confirming this type of ICBM at
conversion or elimination facilities of ICBMs.

The Parties understand that the 6.5 meter length of the
first stage of the SS-25 ICBM, burned without nozzle
attached, declared for such first stages, is the distance
between the extreme points of the cylindrical portion of the
motor case of that stage, without taking into account
protruding elements attached to the motor case.

The Parties understand that no later than five days
after entry into force of this Joint Statement, the Russian
Federation will provide texts of footnotes specifying the
length declared for the first stage of an SS-25 ICBM, burned
without nozzle attached, in a notification provided in
accordance with paragraph 3 of Section I of the Protocol on
Notifications Relating to the Treaty. In this connection,
the respective numbers of the footnotes will be superscripted
after the first mention of the first stage length for the
SS-25 ICBM in subparagraph (a)(i) of Annex F to the
Memorandum of Understanding on the Establishment of the Data
Base Relating to the Treaty.

The Parties agree that the inspecting Party shall have
the right during data update inspections or conversion or
elimination inspections to confirm the type of ICBM by
external viewing and by measurement of the dimensions of a
first stage of an SS-25 ICBM, burned without nozzle attached.
