Bonn Convention

 

(1952), a separate treaty between the governments of the USA, Great Britain, and France on the one hand and the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) on the other. It was signed in Bonn on May 26, 1952, and was intended to pave the way for the militarization of the FRG and its participation in the military blocs of the Western powers. The convention proclaimed the termination of the occupation regime and the sovereignty of the FRG. However, it substantially restricted the FRG’s sovereignty—for instance, the federal government was not permitted to participate in an overall peace settlement, and the USA, Great Britain, and France retained their right to station troops on FRG soil. The convention was to be ratified by all parties and was to become effective simultaneously with the closely related Paris Treaty of 1952. But the French National Assembly rejected the Paris Treaty on Aug. 30, 1954, and the convention never entered into force. It was later incorporated, with some modifications, into the Paris Agreements of 1954.
