22.1. Reservation of Country and Territory Names
SAKURA Internet is committed to reserve the country and territory names contained in the internationally recognized lists that described in the Article 5 of Specification 5 attached to the ʺNew gTLD Applicant Guidebook,ʺ in terms of the second level domain and of all other levels within ʺ.sakura.ʺ
The following is the lists mentioned above:
1. the short form (in English) of all country and territory names contained in the ISO 3166- 1 list, as updated from time to time, including the European Union, which is exceptionally reserved in the ISO 3166-1 list, and its scope extended in August 1999 to any application representing the name European Union 〈http:⁄⁄www.iso.org⁄iso⁄support⁄country_codes⁄iso_3166_code_lists⁄iso-3166- 1_decoding_table.htm#EU〉;
2. the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names, Technical Reference Manual for the Standardization of Geographical Names, Part III Names of Countries of the World; and
3. the list of United Nations member states in 6 official United Nations languages prepared by the Working Group on Country Names of the United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names.

22.2. Release of Names
As set forth in the answer for #18, SAKURA Internet intends to provide the second level domain of .sakura for its own, and SAKURA Internet will be the sole registrant for them. Therefore, SAKURA Internet does not currently envision any need to release geographic names listed above to the governments, public authorities, or IGOs.
Should we find that thereʹs a need to release those domain names in the future, then .sakura will develop required policies and⁄or recommendations to release those domain names, and submit new requests to the Registry Service Evaluation Process (RSEP).

22.3. Dispute Resolution
Based upon our proposed purposes of .sakura set forth in the answer for #18, SAKURA Internet does not envision any potential disputes against us by the government agencies or any other public authorities in connection with the registration and the geographic names used within the .sakura domain.
However, .sakura will make efforts to work with any government agencies, public authorities or IGOs that may have concerns regarding our second level domain names, in terms of national or geographic significance.

22.4. Creation and Updating the Policies
Should there be any future need for creating or updating the policies regarding our domain names under this subject (country and⁄or geographic related), .sakura will develop new policies and⁄or recommendations regarding the release of domain names.
