    What does "fail any indication" mean?

    Hi, everyone.

    I bumped into this phrase while reading the New York Convention.

    The parties to the agreement referred to in article II were, under the law applicable to them, under some incapacity, or the said agreement is not valid under the law to which the parties have subjected it or, failing any indication thereon, under the law of the country where the award was made;
    I suppose if I have to write the part separately, it reads something like "The said agreement is failing the indication thereon." That's the farthest I can go.

    But, really, what does it mean? Even after writing it separately, I still can't work out the meaning of this new sentence.

    I would like to hear your opinions.

    Many thanks

    It is legal jargon.
