A rticle p.
The high contracting parties engage that, in the establishment and recognition of
Consuls-General, Consuls, Vice-Consuls, and Consular Agents, each shall be placed in the
dominions of the other on the footing of the most-favoured nation; and that the treatment
of their respective subjects and their trade shall also, in every respect, be placed on the
footing of the treatment of the subjects and commerce of the most-favoured nation.
Saving the provisions in the latter part of the preceding article, the British Govern
ment will renounce the right of protection hereafter of any Persian subjects not actually in
the employment of the British mission, or of British Consuls General, Consuls, Vice-
Consuls, or Consular Agents, provided that no such right is accorded to or exercised by
any other foreign powers ; but in this, as in all other respects, the British Government
requires, and the Persian Government engages, that the same privileges and immunities
shall in Persia be conferred upon and shall be engaged by the British Government, its
servants and its subjects, and that the same respects and consideration shall be shown for
them, and shall be enjoyed by them, as are conferred upon and enjoyed by and shown to
the most-favoured foreign Government, its servants and its subjects.
