Italy, Germany and Japan will henceforth conduct
in common and jointly a war which has been imposed
on them by the United States of America and
England, by all means at their disposal and until
the end of hostilities.
Italy, Germany and Japan undertake each for
himself that none of the parties to the present
accord will conclude either armistice or peace, be
it with the United States or with England without
complete and reciprocal agreement.
Italy, Germany and Japan, even after the
victorious conclusion of this war, will
collaborate closely in the spirit of the
Tripartite Pact, concluded Sept. 21, 1940, in
order to realize and establish an equitable new
order in the world.
The present accord is effective immediately on its
signature and remains in force for the duration of
the Tripartite Pact, signed Sept. 27, 1940. The high
contracting parties of this accord will at an
opportune moment agree among themselves the means of
implementing Article III above of this accord.
