Minister Feeney, Austria has stated:

… foreign stockpiling of cluster munitions on the national territory of States Parties is prohibited by the Convention. … Should a State Party to the Convention allow a foreign state to stockpile cluster munitions on its territory, this action would be in violation with the provision entailed in Article 1 paragraph c that prohibits assistance …

Does the minister or his advisers agree with that view?
