3.      Britain downgrades to Interest in Tunis.

 

4.      Britain downgrades to Interest in Formosa.

 

5.      France downgrades to Interest in Eritrea.

 

6.      The Powers that have Protectorates in Tanganyika, Kenya, Tunis, Formosa, and Eritrea will never upgrade them to Possession status.

2.      British-German codominion in Kenya.

Japan: 8
