relying on the fact that the lands thereby allocated to Saudi Arabia are inhabited
by tribes owing allegiance to the Saudi Arabian Kingdom: the Bani Hajir, the
Awamir, the A1 Murrah, the Dawasir and other tribes.

Saudi Arabian Government and the Sheikhdoms in question.

Saudi Arabian Government will submit a statement about the demarcation of the
Southern frontier of the Saudi Arabian Kingdom.
