  Without prejudice to the provisions of Article IV of this Agreement,
neither the United States of America nor the Republic of Colombia-
shall establish any prohibition or maintain any restriction on imports
from the territory of the other country which is not applied to the
importation of any like article originating in any third country. With-
out prejudice to the provisions of Article IV of this Agreement, any
abolition of an import prohibition or restriction which may be granted
even temporarily by the United States of America or the Republic of
Colombia in favor of an article of a third country shall be applied
immediately and unconditionally to the like article originating in
the territory of the Republic of Colombia or the United States of
America, respectively.
  In the event of rations or quotas being established by the United
States of America or the Republic of Colombia for the importation of
any article otherwise restricted or prohibited, it is agreed, without
prejudice to the provisions of Article IV, that in the allocation of the
quantity of restricted goods which may be authorized for importa-
tion, the other country will be granted a share equivalent to the pro-
portion of the trade which it enjoyed in a previous representative
period.
  Nevertheless, the advantages now accorded or which may hereafter
be accorded by the United States of America or the Republic of Co-
lombia to adjacent countries in order to facilitate frontier traffic, and
advantages resulting from a customs union to which either country
may become a party shall be excepted from the operation of this
Agreement; and this Agreement shall not apply to police or sanitary
regulations or to the commerce of the United States of America with
the Republic of Cuba, or to commerce between the United States of
America and the Panama Canal Zone, the Philippine Islands, or any
territory or possession of the United States of America or to the com-
merce of the territories and possessions of the United States of America
with one another.
  Subject to the reservations set forth in the preceding paragraph,
the provisions of this article shall apply to articles the growth, pro-
duce or manufacture of any region under the sovereignty or authority
of the United States of America or the Republic of Colombia imported
from or exported to any region under the sovereignty or authority of
the Republic of Colombia or the United States of America, respec-
tively. It is understood, however, that the provisions of this paragraph
do not apply to the Panama Canal Zone.
