|Convention Between Great Britain and China Respecting Tibet|
27 April 1906|
Beijing, Qing Empire|
The Convention Between Great Britain and China Respecting Tibet was a treaty signed between the Qing dynasty and the British Empire in 1906, which reaffirmed the Chinese possession of Tibet after the British expedition to Tibet in 1903-1904. The British, for a fee from the Qing court, also agreed "not to annex Tibetan territory or to interfere in the administration of Tibet", while China engaged "not to permit any other foreign state to interfere with the territory or internal administration of Tibet". This Convention succeeded the Treaty of Lhasa signed between Tibet and the British Empire in 1904.
