6. My comments on YUsuf Yasin's suggestion
are as follows:
(a) It this line were drawn due North and South midway
"between Budaiya (the point nearest the Saudi
mainland) on Manama Island and the Saudi mainland
then it appears to me that LTbaina al Saghir
would fall to the Saudis and Lioaina al Klmbir to
("b) But Bahrain internationally includes all the
territory under the Bahrain Government in which case
the due North and South line should he drawn midway
"between Umm Na^an, which "by common consent "belongs
to Bahrain, and the Saudi mainland. In this case
it appears to me that "both islands would definitely
fall to Bahrain.
(c) I imagine, however, that the Saudi line if ever
drawn would not he due North and South hut would he
equidistant from "both territories following the
configuration of the coast line. In this case
(1) if the line is equidistant between the Saudi
mainland and the Island of Manama "both Lihaina
al Saghir and lihaina al Khahir would appar
ently fall to Saudi Arabia.
(2) If the line is equidistant "between the Saudi
mainland and Umm Na'san Lihaina al Saghir
would apparently fall to Bahrain and Lihaina
al Khahir prohahly to Saudi Axahia.
