611.60 i 31/5a
The Secretary, of State to the E&tonian Minister (Pup)'
WASHINGTON, March 2, 1925.
SIR: I have the honor to make the following statement of my under-
standing of the agreement reached through recent conversations held
at Washington on behalf of the Government of the United States
and the Government of the Republic of Esthonia with reference to
the treatment which the United States shall accord to the commerce
of Esthonia and which Esthonia shall accord to the commerce of the
United States.
These conversations have disclosed a mutual understanding be-
tween the two Governments which is that, in respect to import, export
and other duties and charges affecting commerce, as well as in respect
to transit, warehousing and other facilities and the treatment of com-
mercial travelers' samples, the United States will accord to Esthonia
and Esthonia will accord to the United States, its territories and
possessions, unconditional most-favored-nation treatment; and that
in the matter of licensing or prohibitions of imports or exports, the
United States and Esthonia, respectively, so far as they at any time
maintain such a system, will accord to the commerce of the other
treatment as favorable, with respect to commodities, valuations and
quantities, as may be accorded to the commerce of any other country.
It is understood that
No higher or other duties shall be imposed on the importation
into or disposition in the United States, its territories or possessions,
of any articles the produce or manufacture of Esthonia than are or
shall be payable on like articles the produce or manufacture of any
foreign country:
No higher or other duties shall be imposed on the importation into
or disposition in Esthonia of any articles the produce or manufac-
'The draft for an exchange of notes regarding reciprocal unconditional most-
favored-nation treatment was submitted to the Estonian Legation on Feb. 5,
1925, and was accepted, as here printed, by the Estonian Government after
minor changes.
