of other United Nations appointed in a personal
capacity.
4. The functions of the coordinating committee
and of the control staff will be to advise the Control
Council, to carry out the council's decisions and to
transmit them to appropriate German organs, and
to supervise and control the day-to-day activities of
the latter.
5. Liaison with the other United Nations Govern-
ments chiefly interested will be established through
the appointment by such governments of military
missions (which may include civilian members) to
the Control Council. These missions will have ac-
cess through the appropriate channels to the organs
of control.
6. United Nations organizations will, if admitted
by the Control Council to operate in Germany, be
subordinate to the Allied control machinery and
answerable to it.
7. The administration of the "Greater Berlin"
area will be directed by an inter-allied governing
authority, which will operate under the general direc-
tion of the Control Council, and will consist of four
commandants, each of whom will serve in rotation
as chief commandant. They will be assisted by a
technical staff which will supervise and control the
activities of the local German organs.
8. The arrangements outlined above will operate
during the period of occupation following German
surrender, when Germany is carrying out the basic
requirements of unconditional surrender. Arrange-
ments for the subsequent period will be the subject of
a separate agreement.
