About Adwords' security enhancement

I'd like to ask about security enhancement announced today.

http://googleadsdeveloper.blogspot.jp/2014/04/security-enhancements-for-search-users.html


It tells "we are extending our efforts to keep search secure by removing the query from the referer on ad clicks originating from SSL searches on Google.com."

Does it affect "Google.com" only, or also affect any other Google search engines like 
"https://www.google.co.uk/", "https://www.google.co.jp/", etc?

My understanding: it's a global announcement affecting all SSL searches on all Google's domains.
