With the following declaration:
The Republic of Turkey does not accept the reservation as long as it is incompatible with Article 24(2) and 42(1) of the Convention. According to Article 24(1), any application, communication or other document sent to the Central Authority shall be in the original language, and shall be accompanied by a translation into the offical language or one of the official languages of the requested State, or where that is not feasible, a translation into French or English. Under Article 24(2) a Contracting State may, by making a reservation in accordance with Article 42, object the use of either French or English, but not both, in any application, communication or other document sent to its Central Authority.
The reservation made by Brazil, which excludes the use of both French and English languages in cases where it is not feasible to obtain a translation of the document into Portuguese, is not allowed under Article 24(2) and 42(1). Therefore, in relation to Turkey this reservation may not be invoked by the authorities of Brazil as long as this would be incompatible with the aforementioned provisions of the Convention.
