Cambon–Lansdowne Agreement (1904)
CAMBON–LANSDOWNE AGREEMENT (1904)
After having been rivals for a long time, France and Great Britain mutually agreed to desist. According to the agreement, France had total freedom of action in Morocco; meanwhile France would stop interfering with English financial activities in Egypt, as it had since 1882. The English enjoyed immediate but limited advantages. As for the French, it meant getting potential interests and indicated the end of an obsessional opposition. The agreement took place on 8 April 1904 in a general atmosphere of mutual reconciliation, for the two countries were worried about Germany's growing power.
