I. Recognition and Friendship

1. The High Contracting Parties shall from this point forward, for as long as both continue to exist or desire this agreement to remain in-force, be in a perpetual state of mutual recognition and friendship, respecting each other’s independence and sovereignty.

2. The High Contracting Parties commit to the peaceful resolution of any and all disagreements that may occur to estrange or otherwise alienate them from one another.

3. The High Contracting Parties shall refrain from any aggressive, subversive, belligerent, or hostile act or policy, either overtly or covertly, directed against one another.

4. The High Contracting Parties commit to identifying and cooperating on issues of mutual interest, including those presented through intermicronational organizations of which both are members, with the goal of creating a closer bilateral relationship.

II. Neutrality of High Contracting Parties

5. Each High Contracting Party shall respect the neutrality of the other. Neither shall seek to involve the other High Contracting Party in any conflict between it and a third party and each High Contracting Party understands that this agreement does not commit the other into taking any action whatsoever in support of it during any third-party conflict.

III. Diplomatic Immunity

6. Each High Contracting Party shall grant onto the other's sovereign, and any accredited diplomatic officials, full immunity from prosecution for offences that may be committed within its jurisdiction. The immunity for diplomatic officials other than the sovereign may be waived on an individual case-by-case basis at the agreement of both High Contracting Parties for certain heinous crimes.

IV. Mutual Prosperity and Co-operation

7. The High Contracting Parties undertake to encourage full and productive co-operation between organs of the state, academic or other research institutions, charitable organisations and other such entities engaged in the pursuit of the furtherance of archaeology, cultural development, history, language, science, technology, and other such areas of research, across both jurisdictions, and shall endeavour to lift any unnecessary bars or fetters to such research and provide expedited state entry procedures for those individuals involved.

8. The High Contracting Parties shall permit and encourage visa-free tourism, trade, commerce and industry across their borders, with special consideration given to the transit of manufactured goods and raw materials. In major infrastructure projects, the governments of the High Contracting Parties shall in the tendering process consider companies from each nation alike.

V. Respect for Territory

9. The High Contracting Parties shall respect their rights to future territorial expansion and recognise the international limit of rights to waters as categorised into two zones:
 
a. The territorial waters, consisting of twenty-four kilometres from the coast of the state, subject to full jurisdiction of the state;
 
b. The exclusive economic zone, consisting of three hundred and sixty kilometres from the coast of the state, in which the state shall have exclusive rights for the purpose of exploring and exploiting, conserving and managing the natural resources, whether living or non-living, of the waters superjacent to the seabed and of the seabed and its subsoil, and with regard to other activities for the economic exploitation and exploration of the zone, such as the production of energy from the water, currents and winds;
 
c. Wherever the exclusive economic zones of the High Contracting Parties shall clash, the median point between the coasts of the states shall be the border of between the aforesaid exclusive economic zones.
 
10. Further clarification on the question of territorial waters may be produced by mutual consent of the High Contracting Parties via an ancillary agreement to this Treaty.

VI. Efficacy of this Treaty

12. This Treaty shall be valid indefinitely, and may also be amended, repealed or replaced by mutual consent of the High Contracting Parties.

13. Following the negotiation of any further amendments to this Treaty, it shall be re-signed and re-ratified.
