In addition to the commitments made under other Articles of this Convention, each Member shall assume the obligations provided for in this Article. 5. If a Member has reached an agreement with the Fund in accordance with Article 3, the Fund shall use the currencies of other Members allocated to that Member in accordance with point 2(d) to exchange the currency of that Member, which shall be granted to other Members which have concluded agreements with the Fund in accordance with point 3. Any amount so collected shall be cashed in the currency of the member over whom it has been distributed. In addition to the obligations arising from special drawing rights under other Articles of this Agreement, each Participant undertakes to cooperate with the Fund and other participants in order to facilitate the effective functioning of the Special Drawing Rights Division and the proper use of the Special Drawing Rights provided for in this Agreement and to make the Special Drawing Right the main reserve in the international monetary system. 4. If, within the three-month period referred to in point 3, a Member has not reached an agreement with the Fund, the Fund shall use the currencies of other Members allocated to that Member in accordance with point 2(d) to exchange the currency of that Member which is allocated to other Members. Any currency which is granted to a Member which has not reached an agreement shall be used as far as possible to exchange its currency, which shall be granted to Members which have concluded agreements with the Fund in accordance with point 3. Without prejudice to the provisions of the other Articles of this Agreement, a Member which has informed the Fund of its intention to use transitional provisions may maintain and adapt to changing circumstances the restrictions on payments and transfers for ongoing international transactions which were in force at the time of its accession. However, in their exchange rate policies, Members shall be constantly attentive to the purposes of the Fund and, as soon as conditions permit, shall take all possible measures to conclude trade and financial agreements with other Members facilitating international payments and the promotion of a stable exchange rate system. In particular, Members shall lift restrictions maintained under this Section as soon as they are satisfied that, in the absence of such restrictions, they will be able to settle their balance of payments in a manner that does not place an undue burden on their access to the general resources of the Fund. The Fund shall report annually on the restrictions in force under Section 2 of this Article.

Each Member which maintains restrictions inconsistent with Sections 2, 3 or 4 of Article VIII shall consult the Fund annually with respect to their subsequent withholding. The Fund may, if it considers that such a measure is necessary in exceptional circumstances, recognize to any Member that the conditions are favourable to the withdrawal of a particular restriction or to the general lifting of restrictions inconsistent with the provisions of the other Articles of this Agreement. The member shall have a reasonable period of time to reply to such statements. Where the Fund finds that the Member retains restrictions inconsistent with the purposes of the Fund, the Member shall be subject to Article XXVI, Section 2a. The property and property of the Fund, wherever located and by whomever it is held, shall be immune from search, seizure, seizure, expropriation or any other form of seizure by legislative or executive means. . . .
