that it might be accepted, subject to the specific
exclusion of the frontier agreements, if it appears to
Mr. hoare to be likely that the acceptance of the Persian
proposals on this point would appreciably improve the
prospects of a siisfactory and comprehensive treaty
settlement.
6 . The Secretary of State considers however that
Mr. Hoare should be instructed ir the first place, to make
a final effort to reach a settlement of this question on
the lines already approved by His Majusty f s Government.
The further proposal, advanced by Mr. Hoarc in the last
paragraph of his telegram under reference, that the
phrase u ne sont pas en vig. eur” might be substituted for
’♦shall cease to be binding”, is not acceptable, for
reasons which have already been explained to Mr. Hoare.
At the same time, it may be possible to discover some
solution which would be more acceptable to the Persian
Government than the phrase ’’shall cease to be binding 1 ',
which implies that the instruments in question are
undoubtedly binding at the date of the signature of the
treaty. Mr. Hoare might be authorised to propose to the
Persian Government the alternative phrase:- " auront cesse
d'etrS en vigueur”. Or if necessary, it might be possible
for the parties concerned to admit their difference of
opinion as follows:- ’’The High Contracting Parties,
"who have been unable to agree on the question of the
"actual validity of the following instruments, agree that
"they will no longer be in force after the entry into force
"of the present treaty.”
