                            ARTICLE IV
  Where, on the death of any person holding real or other immovable
property or interests therein within the territories of one High Con-
tracting Party, such property or interests therein would, by the laws
of the country or by a testamentary disposition, descend or pass to a
national of the other High Contracting Party, whether resident or
non-resident, were he not disqualified by the laws of the country where
such property or interests therein is or are situated, such national
shall be allowed a term of three years in which to sell the same, this
term to be reasonably prolonged if circumstances render it necessary,
and withdraw the proceeds thereof, without restraint or interference,
and exempt from any estate succession, probate or administrative
duties or charges other than those which may be imposed in like cases
upon the nationals of the country from which such proceeds may be
drawn.
  Nationals of either High Contracting Party may have full power
to dispose of their personal property of every kind within the terri-
tories of the other, by testament, donation, or otherwise, and their
heirs, legatees and donees, of whatsoever nationality, whether resident
or non-resident, shall succeed to such personal property, and may take
possession thereof, either by themselves or by others acting for them,
and retain or dispose of the same at their pleasure subject to the pay-
ment of such duties or charges only as the nationals of the High Con-
tracting Party within whose territories such property may be or be-
long shall be liable to pay in like cases. In the same way, personal
property left to nationals of one of the High Contracting Parties by
nationals of the other High Contracting Party, and being within the
territories of such other Party, shall be subject to the payment of such
duties or charges only as the nationals of the High Contracting Party-
within whose territories such property may be or belong shall be liable
to pay in like cases.
                          ArFIncE VIII
  With respect to customs duties or charges of any kind imposed on
or in connection with importation or exportation, and with respect
to the method of levying such duties or charges, and with respect to,
all rules and formalities in connection with importation or exporta--
tion, and with respect to all laws or regulations affecting the sale,
taxation, or use of imported goods within the country, any advantage,
favor, privilege or immunity which has been or may hereafter be
granted by either High Contracting Party to any article originating
in or destined for any third country, shall be accorded immediately
and unconditionally to the like article originating in or destined for
the other High Contracting Party.
