I
AGREEMENT CONCERNING THE NON-ALIENATION OF THE ISLAND OF HAINAN

( March 5, 1898)


The Tsong-li Yamen to M. Gérard, Minister of the French Republic at Peiping

On the first day of the second moon of the twenty-third year of Kwangsu ( March 3, 1897) we received the dispatch in which you inform us that France, in view of the close relations of amity and neighborliness which she has enjoyed with China, attaches particular importance to the fact that China has never yielded the island of Hainan to any foreign power, either by permanent or temporary cession, or as a naval station or fueling depot.

Our Yamen considers that Kiungchow (the island of Hainan) is part of the territory of China which, as a result, has sovereign rights there. How could she yield it to foreign nations?

I should be grateful to Your Highnesses and to Your Excellencies if, in acknowledging the receipt of this letter, you would be good enough to reply by official dispatch to the desire of the Government of the Republic.
