From Sha’am, 35 miles southwest of Ras Musam dam, for nearly 400 miles to Khor al Odeid at the southeastern end of the peninsula of Qatar, the coast, formerly known as the Trucial Coast, of the Gulf (together with 50 miles of the coast of the Gulf of Oman) belongs to the rulers of the 7 Trucial States. In 1820 these rulers signed a peace treaty with the British Government followed by further agreements under which the sheikhs undertook not to enter into any agreement with any power other than the British Government.
