NORWAY AND CHINA

Exchange of notes regarding the treaty of Peace, amity and commerce of 1847.--
November 15 and 17, 1928

MR. N. AALL,

Norwegian Chargé d'Affaires in China,
MONSIEUR LE CHARGÉ D'AFFAIRES:

I have the honour to state that more than three quarters of a century have elapsed since the conclusion of the Treaty of Peace, Amity, and Commerce between China and Norway in 1847, and that during that long period of time conditions in both countries have so changed that many provisions in the said Treaty have outlived their usefulness and, if allowed to continue to exist in their present form, would give rise to difficulties and complications. It is therefore my wish that your Government would soon enter into negotiations with the National Government of China for the conclusion of a new Treaty in place of the Treaty of 1847, on the basis of equality and mutual respect for sovereignty.

(sign.) C. T. WANG.

November 15, 1928.

His Excellency

DR. C. T. WANG,

Minister for Foreign Affairs of
the Nationalist Government.

MONSIEUR LE MINISTRE:

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of Your Excellency's Note of the 15th inst. suggesting that my Government enter into negotiations for a new Treaty in place of the Treaty of 1847, on the basis of equality and mutual respect for sovereignty.

The very fact that my Government did so readily meet the wishes expressed in Your Excellency's Note of September 12, 1928, proposing a new Treaty on tariff and related matters, would, in my opinion, give ample proof of the friendly feelings entertained in Norway toward the Chinese Republic, and when these feelings have found expression in the conclusion of the new tariff treaty between the two countries, I am confident that the friendly attitude of my Government will not be found to have changed at the time when the question of revising the whole Treaty of 1847 on the basis of equality and mutual respect for sovereignty is brought up for consideration.

I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to your Excellency, Monsieur le Ministre, the assurance of my highest consideration.

(sign.) N. AALL,

[ November 17, 1928.]2 Chargé d'Affaires.
