Your Highness,

I have the honour to inform Your Highness that in view of the excellent relations existing between our two countries and with regard to the increasing number of Netherlands nationals, residing in the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman, Her Majesty's Government has expressed the desire to establish consular relations between the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman and the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is therefore with great satisfaction that I have learned, following the interview which Your Highness has graciously granted to Her Majesty's Ambassador in Baghdad in January 1968, that Your Highness has consented to an exchange of letters establishing such relations.

On behalf of Her Majesty's Government I, therefore, have the honour to propose to Your Highness the establishment of consular relations between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman, on a basis of reciprocity.

It is the intention of Her Majesty's Government that a member of Her Majesty's Embassy in Baghdad shall be charged in a consular capacity with the performance of these consular duties. It also suggests that he be granted general permission to visit the Sultanate of Muscat and Oman at any time that his presence may be required in order to discharge his consular tasks.

Likewise Her Majesty's Government shall be pleased and honoured to receive a consular representative which Your Highness may desire to charge with consular duties in the Kingdom of the Netherlands on behalf of the Sultanate.

If Your Highness can agree to these proposals, I suggest that this letter and Your letter in reply thereto shall constitute an arrangement in this matter to take effect as from the date of the said reply.

Accept, Your Highness, the assurance of my highest consideration.

Finally we are pleased to note that Her Majesty's Government shall be pleased to receive our Consular representative in the same way should we so desire, and we confirm that this exchange of letters shall constitute the arrangement in this matter from this date.
