Askari Treaty - Military and Diplomatic Agreement of Friendship and Cooperation
The Parties to this Treaty are determined to safeguard the freedom, common heritage and civilisation of their peoples. They seek to promote stability, well-being and unity between Governments in the European and Mid-Eastern regions.
They are resolved to unite their efforts for collective defence and for the preservation of peace and security. They therefore agree to the following treaty:
The Parties will contribute toward the further development of peaceful and friendly international relations by strengthening their free institutions, by bringing about a better understanding of the principles upon which these institutions are founded, and by promoting conditions of stability and well-being. They will seek to eliminate conflict in their international economic policies and will encourage economic collaboration between any or all of them.
In order more effectively to achieve the objectives of this Treaty, the Parties, separately and jointly, by means of continuous and effective self-help and mutual aid, will maintain and develop their individual and collective capacity to resist armed attack.
The Parties will consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened.
The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security in the region where such an attack has been launched.
Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall immediately be reported to the Council formed by all Parties that have been signatories to this treaty as according to Article 7. Such measures shall be terminated when the Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security.
For the purpose of Article 5, an armed attack on one or more of the Parties is deemed to include an armed attack:
on the sovereign and recognized territory of any of the Parties, on the territory of or on the Islands under the jurisdiction of any of the Parties
on the forces, vessels, or aircraft of any of the Parties, when in or over these territories or any other area in which forces of any of the Parties were stationed on the date when the Treaty entered into force or the Atlantic Sea and Mediterranean Sea.
Each Party declares that none of the international engagements now in force between it and any other of the Parties or any third State is in conflict with the provisions of this Treaty, and undertakes not to enter into any international engagement in conflict with this Treaty.
The Parties hereby establish a Council, on which each of them shall be represented, to consider matters concerning the implementation of this Treaty. The Council shall be so organised as to be able to meet promptly at any time. The Council shall set up such subsidiary bodies as may be necessary; in particular it shall establish immediately a defence committee which shall recommend measures for the implementation of Articles 3 and 5.
The Parties may, by unanimous agreement, invite any other State in a position to further the principles of this Treaty and to contribute to the security of the areas involved to accede to this Treaty. Any State so invited may become a Party to the Treaty by depositing its instrument of accession with the Government of any signatory Party. The Government of the signatory Party will inform each of the Parties of the deposit of each such instrument of accession.
This Treaty shall be ratified and its provisions carried out by the Parties in accordance with their respective constitutional processes. The instruments of ratification shall be deposited as soon as possible with the Government of the Hanseatic Empire, which will notify all the other signatories of each deposit. The Treaty shall enter into force with respect to other States on the date of the deposit of their ratifications.
After the Treaty has been in force for four months, or at any time thereafter, the Parties shall, if any of them so requests, consult together for the purpose of reviewing the Treaty, having regard for the factors then affecting peace and security in the involved areas, including the development of universal as well as regional arrangements for the maintenance of international peace and security.
After the Treaty has been in force for five years, any Party may cease to be a Party one year after its notice of denunciation has been given to the Council.
This Treaty, of which the German, English and Arabic texts are equally authentic, shall be deposited in the archives of the Government of the Seljuk Empire. Duly certified copies will be transmitted by that Government to the Governments of other signatories.
