1892- Trucial and British Agreement of 1892.
The Trucial States and Britain come to an agreement, the agreement is known as the Trucial and British Agreement of 1892. The agreement consisted of diplomacy changes, internal affairs and agreement to a principle known as Extended Deterrence. The diplomacy changes allowed the Trucial States to adopt more principles from British alliance, which highly correlates with the agreement that Britain would protect the Trucial States from aggressive actions from other countries. (Extended Deterrence) The internal affairs gave Britain full authority to continue combating piracy in that region, thus this part of the agreement which gave protection to both the Trucial States and Britain trade routes. This served beneficial in the Trucial States as they were still dependent on foreign support to stand as a government in the Persian Gulf. Many people living under the Trucial States government were “granted employment” within British trade routes according to UAEInteract. As for Britain, they highlighted this agreement as a way to secure peace in the Persian Gulf and while combating piracy.
