3. Mr. L'ESTRANGE MALONE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any negotiations are in progress with Persia as regards the capitulatory régime; whether other countries besides Russia and Turkey have renounced their capitulatory privileges; and which countries still exercise such rights?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
The position of foreign nationals in Persia after the termination of the so-called capitulatory régime is naturally the subject of discussion between the Persian Government and the other Governments concerned. The countries still entitled to exercise capitulatory rights are, I believe, the Argentine Republic, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, 1950 Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United States and Uruguay. So far as I am aware, no countries other than Russia and Turkey have hitherto renounced their rights.
