we had no rights over any part of the sea area lying
between Bahrain and this line. If our ownership of
this area was in doubt why were these negociations
approved by Political Agent A mid-ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Agency. ?
4. In para 4 of your letter you state that our
sovemgn rights in Dibal and Jaradah shoals, which
are above spring tide low water level, are recognised.
These two shoals are in fact the terminus of one long
continuous shoal which begins off Sitra Island and reaches
Dibal and Jaradah. There is no deep water channel crossing
this shoal and the highest points of this shoal, at Dibal
and Jaradah, cannot be separated from the main shoal.
We contend that all the sea lying between our coasts up
to and including Dibal and Jaradah should be included in
the sea over which we have sovereign rights.
5. We are unable to understand why our island of Jinan,
which, owing to the rich fishing grounds around it, is
an island of value, has been excluded from the Hawar
group. Jinan is used as a base by our fishermen who are
accustomed, with our permission, to erect huts on the
island in the fishing season. Jinan has been recognised
as one of the islands of the Hawar group and was speci
fically referred to by us in our letter to H.B.lTs Poli
tical Agent, vide letter No. C/180 of April 28, 1936 from
our Adviser to H.B.M's Political Agent A mid-ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Agency. ., It is marked

6. In conclusion we consider that the delimination
described in your letter should be readjusted and the
dividing line should run from and including Jinan up to
the north east corner of Dibal, including the whole
length of the shoal which starts at Sitra and which
appears above the surface at Dibal and Jaradah.
