Declaration made upon ratification (Original: English):

"With regards to Article 3, paragraph 2, of the Optional Protocol, the Government of the Federated States of Micronesia declares that it currently has no national armed forces, and thus, a minimum age requirement for recruitment into its national armed forces is not applicable in the case of the Federated States of Micronesia. Similarly, it is not necessary for the Government of the Federated States of Micronesia to describe the safeguards that it has adopted to prevent any coerced recruitment of children into its armed forces."
