Sir:-
I have the honour to draw your attention to the
provision made in the Feglement Intferieur for the
Turco-Perslan Frontier Commission (Annex A. to the
Protocol) for the payment of the expenses of erecting
boundary marks along the frontier.
Mr. Minorsky and I provided so far as we could for
any likely difficulties by laying down that the Corn-
mission should estimate the amount likely to be re
quired for each section of the frontier, and that the
Turkish and Persian Commissioners should pay down
the amount in equal shares.
This seems a satisfactory arrangement and no doubt
it is so in theory; but it unfortunately depends in
practice on the parties concerned being in possession
of the requisite funds.
The Turkish Commissioners assured us that they
would be given drafts on the provincial Governors to
meat such expenses and that they would moreover be able
to
The Under Secretary of State,
Foreign Office.
