Legally, therefore, the sovereignty of the sultan was not impinged on, since he retained his formal right to manage the external relations of his country. Officially, Britain only represented the sultan externally at his own request and on a case-by-case basis. During the 1960s, it was very important for the British Government to present its responsibility for Oman’s foreign relations as an exception to the rule in the Persian Gulf, and to stress publicly the independence and sovereignty of the sultanate.

The British aim to protect the emirate against foreign aggression was the main reason for Britain’s military presence in the entire Persian Gulf area.

In Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain, the rulers received 50 per cent of the oil companies’ profits.
