Letter, dated June 24, 1948, from the Ruler of Bahrain to the Secretary of State for
Foreign Affairs
The following is what I am still prepared to do: —
{a) To define, as is shown on the map herewith, the area of Zubarah 18th-century town located 105 km from Doha. . To hold
this land and what is on it in free use by my family, my adherents and my subjects.
{b) To hold the land so defined as in private ownership for ever,
(c) To surrender to the Shaikh of Qatar or otherwise renounce all oil rights
in the Zubara area; in this connexion I would like to point out that I have never
at any time claimed such rights there.
id) Subject to my seeing the oil concession Agreement between the Shaikh of
Qatar and the Petroleum Concessions Limited to respect the provisions of that
Agreement so that all its benefits, entirely, go to the Shaikh of Qatar.
(e) To obtain the surrender by the Bahrain Petroleum Company of any claims
they have or may have in Zubara under the concession which they hold from me in
my territories.
if) To continue, as now and as before, to allow Petroleum Concessions Limited
freedom to conduct its business in my country and to buy water from here and
carry it to Qatar. In this connection I hope that ways may be found to provide
enough water for the needs of the Company in Qatar, without exposing my country
to detriment or bad consequences, by pipes from Bahrain.
(g) In return for this fair offer I require to obtain the rights of my family, my
adherents and my subjects at Zubara including freedom and security for their lives
and property similar to the conditions which they enjoyed at Zubara prior to the
dispute in 1936.
