Afghánistán is situated between parallels 29° and 38° 35′ N. lat., and 60° 50′ and 71° 50′ E. long., with a long narrow strip extending to 75° E. long. (Wákhán). For the boundaries, see The Statesman’s Year-Book, 1925, pp. 654–55; for the treaty of Nov. 1921, see The Statesman’s Yeak-Book, 1928, p. 642; and for earlier British relations with Afghánistán, which began in 1809, see The Statesman’s Yeak-Book, 1916, pp. 662–63. A new boundary agreement with the Soviet Union was signed in Moscow in June 1946; a joint commission completed the demarcation in Sept. 1948.
