Treaty of Manila (1946)

The Treaty of Manila was signed with the declaration of Philippine independence in July 4, 1946.

The Treaty of Manila of 1946 (61 Stat. 1174, TIAS 1568, 7 UNTS 3), formally the Treaty of general relations and Protocol,[1] is a treaty of general relations signed on 4 July in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines. Parties to the treaty were the Federal Government of the United States and the Republic of the Philippines. The United States granted the Philippines independence, and the treaty provided for the recognition of that independence. The treaty was signed by Ambassador Paul V. McNutt as a representative of the United States and President Manuel Roxas representing the Philippines. The treaty became effective in the United States on 22 October, when it was ratified by the Senate.

The treaty was accompanied by a "provisional agreement concerning friendly relations and diplomatic and consular representation" (60 Stat. 1800, TIAS 1539, 6 UNTS 335) until the treaty was ratified.
