The French Government shall be responsible for the security of all goods and valuables the safe return or preservation of which at the disposal of Germany is required by this Agreement or the transfer of which outside the country is prohibited. The French government is obliged to replace any destruction, degradation or removal, contrary to the agreement. In the early morning of November 11, Erzberger and Foch met for the final negotiations. According to Lowry, the German envoy did his best to convince Foch to make the deal less severe. Foch made some small changes, including the installation of some of their weapons by the Germans. Finally, just before sunrise, the agreement was signed. Hostilities shall be suspended six hours after the date on which the Italian Government informed the German Government of the conclusion of its agreement. The German government will inform the French government of this period by radio. The French government will send a delegation to the headquarters of the German Ceasefire Commission to represent French wishes and receive from the German Ceasefire Commission implementing rules [of the agreement]. .
