    Background: Italy and Austria today (Saturday) concluded a treaty on the German-speaking South Tyrol region of Italy, formally putting an and to a dispute which has divided the two nations for half a century. The Foreign Minister of Austria, Herr Rudolf Kirchschlaeger and his Italian opposite, Aldo More signed the treaty, under which the two sides undertake to submit to the International Court of Justice at the Hague any disputes arising out of the recently concluded South Tyrol settlement arranged by Italy. This gives to the region much of the autonomy it has sought for 50 years.

    SYNOPSIS: At the Foreign Ministry in Rome last Saturday, an end was put to the dispute over the South Tyrol that has divided Italy and Austria for half a century. The Austrian Foreign Minister, Herr Rudolf Kirchschlaeger, in Italy on an official visit, met the Italian Foreign Minister, Aldo Moro, to sign the treaty.

    Ownership of the South Tyrol has changed several times since the First World War, to the anger of the mainly German population. But recently Italy granted it considerable autonomy...and this treaty binds both sides to take any further disputes to the Court of International Justice at the Hague
