ARTICLE 28.<br><br>
 
                                                     
 
The frontiers described by the present Treaty are traced, for
 
such parts as are defined, on the one-in-a-million map attached
 
to the present Treaty. In case of differences between the text
 
and the map, the text will prevail. [See Introduction ]<br><br>
 
                                       
 
ARTICLE 29.<br><br>
 
Boundary Commissions, whose composition is or will be fixed
 
in the present Treaty or any other Treaty between the Principal
 
Allied and Associated Powers and the, or any, interested Powers,
 
will have to trace these frontiers on the ground.<br><br>
 
                                       
 
They shall have the power, not only of fixing those portions
 
which are defined as "a line to be fixed on the ground," but also,
 
where a request to that effect is made by one of the Powers concerned, and the Commission is satisfied that it is desirable to do
 
so, of revising portions defined by administrative boundaries;
 
this shall not, however, apply in the case of international frontiers existing in August, 1914, where the task of the Commission
 
will confine itself to the re-establishment of sign-posts and
 
boundary-marks. They shall endeavour in both cases to follow
 
as nearly as possible the descriptions given in the Treaties, taking
 
into account as far as possible administrative boundaries and
 
local economic interests.<br><br>
 
                                       
 
The decisions of the Commissions will be taken by a majority,
 
and shall be binding on the parties concerned.<br><br>
 
                                       
 
The expenses of the Boundary Commissions shall be borne in
 
equal shares by the two States concerned.<br><br>
 
                                       
 
ARTICLE 30.<br><br>
 
                                                     
 
In so far as frontiers defined by a waterway are concerned, the
 
phrases "course" or "channel" used in the descriptions of the
 
present Treaty signify, as regards non-navigable rivers, the
 
median line of the waterway or of its principal branch, and, as
 
regards navigable rivers, the median line of the principal channel
 
of navigation It will rest with the Boundary Commissions
 
provided for by the present Treaty to specify whether the frontier
 
line shall follow any changes of the course or channel which may
 
take place, or whether it shall be definitely fixed by the position
 
of the course or channel at the time when the present Treaty
 
comes into force.<br><br>
 
 
ARTICLE 31.<br><br>
 
           
 
The various Powers interested undertake to furnish to the
 
Commissions all documents necessary for their tasks, especially
 
authentic copies of agreements fixing existing or old frontiers,
 
all large scale maps in existence, geodetic data, surveys completed but unpublished, and information concerning the changes
 
of frontier watercourses.<br><br>
 
 
They also undertake to instruct the local authorities to communicate to the Commissions all documents, especially plans,
 
cadastral and land books, and to furnish on demand all details
 
regarding property, existing economic conditions, and other
 
necessary information.<br><br>
 
 
ARTICLE 32.<br><br>
 
           
 
The various Powers interested undertake to give every assistance to the Boundary Commissions, whether directly or through
 
local authorities, in everything that concerns transport, accommodation, labour, material (signposts, boundary pillars) necessary for the accomplishment of their mission.<br><br>
 
 
ARTICLE 33.<br><br>
 
           
 
The various Powers interested undertake to safeguard the
 
trigonometrical points, signals, posts or frontier marks erected
 
by the Commissions.<br><br>
 
 
ARTICLE 34.<br><br>
 
           
 
The pillars will be placed so as to be intervisible; they will be
 
numbered, and their position and their number will be noted on a
 
cartographic document.<br><br>
 
 
ARTICLE 35.<br><br>
 
           
 
The protocols defining the boundary and the maps and documents attached thereto will be made out in triplicate, of which
 
two copies will be forwarded to the Governments of the limitrophe
 
Powers and the third to the Government of the French Republic,
 
which will deliver authentic copies to the Powers who sign the
 
present Treaty.<br><br>

Bulgaria renounces in favour of the Serb-Croat-Slovene State

A Commission consisting of seven members, five nominated
 
by the Principal Allied and Associated Powers, one by the Serb-Croat-Slovene State, and one by Bulgaria, shall be constituted
 
within fifteen days from the coming into force of the present
 
Treaty to trace on the spot the frontier line described in Article

Bulgarian nationals habitually resident in the territories
 
assigned to the Serb-Croat-Slovene State will acquire Serb-Croat-Slovene nationality<i> ipso facto</i> and will lose their Bulgarian
 
nationality.<br><br>
 
                                       
 
Bulgarian nationals, however, who became resident in these
 
territories after January 1, 1913, will not acquire Serb-Croat-Slovene nationality without a permit from the Serb-Croat-Slovene State.<br><br>
 
 
ARTICLE 40.<br><br>
 
           
 
Within a period of two years from the coming into force of the
 
present Treaty, Bulgarian nationals over 18 years of age and
 
habitually resident in the territories which are assigned to the
 
Serb-Croat-Slovene State in accordance with the present Treaty
 
will be entitled to opt for their former nationality. Serb-Croat-Slovenes over 18 years of age who are Bulgarian nationals and
 
habitually resident in Bulgaria will have a similar right to opt
 
for Serb-Croat-Slovene nationality.<br><br>
 
 
Option by a husband will cover his wife and option by parents
 
will cover their children under 18 years of age.<br><br>
 
 
Persons who have exercised the above right to opt must within
 
the succeeding twelve months transfer their place of residence to
 
the State for which they have opted.<br><br>
 
 
They will be entitled to retain their immovable property in the
 
territory of the other State where they had their place of residence
 
before exercising their right to opt. They may carry with them
 
their movable property of every description. No export or import
 
duties may be imposed upon them in connection with the removal
 
of such property.<br><br>
 
 
Within the same period Serb-Croat-Slovenes who are Bulgarian nationals and are in a foreign country will be entitled, in
 
the absence of any provisions to the contrary in the foreign law,
 
and if they have not acquired the foreign nationality, to obtain
 
Serb-Croat-Slovene nationality and lose their Bulgarian nationality by complying with the requirements laid down by the Serb-Croat-Slovene State.<br><br>
 
 
ARTICLE 41.<br><br>
 
           
 
The proportion and nature of the financial obligations of
 
Bulgaria which the Serb-Croat-Slovene State will have to assume
 
on account of the territory placed under its sovereignty will be
 
determined in accordance with Article 141, Part VIII (Financial
 
Clauses), of the present Treaty.<br><br>
 
 
Subsequent agreements will decide all questions which are not
