Ruler of Kuwait
I have the honour to draw your Highness' attention to the clause in the
Kuwait Order in Council A regulation issued by the sovereign of Great Britain on the advice of the Privy Council (in modern practice, upon the advice of government ministers). which defines " Kuwait subject" and which, therefore,
for practical purposes defines the jurisdiction of Your Highness. It reads as
follows: —
'" Kuwait subject " means a subject of the Shaikh of Kuwait and any
person, not being a British Subject, who is the national of any other Moslem
state.'
I am to point out that, as Your Highness is doubtless aware, the expression
" Moslem state " in this context is imprecise and I am to ask your agreement to
replacing the clause quoted by another defining the extent of Your Highness'
jurisdiction as covering nationals of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan, Persia,
Syria, Egypt, the Lebanon, the Yemen, Muscat and Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, and
the Trucial States and stateless Moslems of Palestinian origin.

We refer to your letter No. 5 dated 8.1.52 on the subject of the proposed
amendment to define the meaning of the expression " Kuwait subject" and
wish to inform you that we agree to replacing of the old clause, quoted in your
letter under reference, by another defining the extent of our jurisdiction as to
cover nationals of the countries mentioned in your above-mentioned letter.
