Sir A. Ryan to Acting Saudi Minister for F oreignAffairs.
(After Compliments.) iqqj .
Your Excellency, Jedda, April 28, 1934.
I HAVE the honour to state that I have received instructions from His
Maiesty's Government in the United Kingdom to inform the Government of His
Maiesty King Abdul Aziz, as a matter of courtesy, that the Government of the
United States of America have recently asked them for information regarding the
treatv basis of the territorial status and boundaries of certain territories and
spheres of influence in Eastern Arabia, and have been furnished m reply with
copies of the Anglo-Turkish conventions of the 29th July, 1913, and of the
9th March, 1914. I enclose, for convenience of reference, copies of these conven
tions, the second of which was ratified and published. , , ,
It has been pointed out to the United States Government that while the
Anglo-Turkish convention of 1913 was not ratified, the boundary laid down m
article 11 of that convention is mentioned, adequately defined and definitely
adopted in article 3 of the ratified convention of 1914, which in the view of His
Majesty's Government remains operative. Since article 7 of , the
1913 contains provisions regarding the frontier of Koweit, the attration of the
United States Government has also been drawn to the subsequent Koweit-Nejd
Boundary Convention of the 2nd December, 1922.
