From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The British-Russian Convention is a political convention of several days that took place between the Russian Empire and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The conference was concluded on August 31, 1907, with the signing of the Treaty of Saint Petersburg that initiated the Anglo-Russian Entente.

The convention was organized to solve the problems around the Persian Empire, Afghanistan and Tibet. It was part of the tense playing field called The Great Game which had been going on for several decennia. The convention was preamble to the First World War.

Further on talks were held on a marine treaty. The British were asked if they were willing to protect the Baltic Sea coasts. When British refused to grant a loan to Turkey the Turks accepted this as a denial from Britain.
