Abstract

The British Ambassador and the Belgian Minister for Foreign Affairs at Brussels establish by letter the boundaries of Tanganika Lake between Tanganyika territory and the Belgian mandated territory of Ruanda-Urundi. They agree that, notwithstanding the new boundary in Lake Tanganyika which is defined by the paragraph all customary rights of fishing and passage exercised by natives living on either side of it should be preserved, but that, at the same time, even with regard to the rights of fishing and passage, the respective Governments should preserve their common law rights and should not, for instance, be debarred from levying a fishing tax on all persons alike who use their territorial waters.
