Уговореното въ настоящето споразумение нѣма да се простира до третирането, което е признато на Съединенитѣ Щати за търговията съ Куба, съгласно разпорежданията на търговската конвенция сключена между Съединенитѣ Щати и Куба на 11 декемврий 1902 година, или съ разпорежданията на нѣкоя друга търговска конвенция, която би могло следъ това да биде сключена между Съединенитѣ Щати и Куба.
