Declaration made upon accession on 17.05.2016 under article 3 (2) (Original: English):

“The Independent State of Samoa in acceding to this Protocol declares that it has no national armed forces and its civilian Police Force is also unarmed, hence a minimum age for recruitment at which it will permit voluntary recruitment into a national armed force is not applicable in the case of the Independent State of Samoa.”
