There is a common misconception that Embassies and Consulates have extraterritoriality. As anecdotal evidence of this misconception, people will often say things like, “the US Embassy sits upon United States soil.” For the most part, this is not the case as extraterritoriality is not conferred upon an Embassy or Consulate
, but in some situations extraterritoriality may be created by Treaty.
At one time, the Kingdom of Thailand conferred extraterritorial rights upon foreigners in the country.
A person or a bag may be conferred extra-territoriality but not the embassy ground itself. Shocking, eh?
Or if there is a treaty between two States where reciprocity is respected then they may confer extra-territorial status for each other embassies. So if Serbia extends such status to China, the latter should do the same for Serbia. However, if Serbia is at war against the US, and since the US is not party to that agreement, and if the Chinese embassy was being used for the benefit of the Serbian military, then as far as the war is concerned, the Chinese embassy lost its protected status FOR THE PURPOSES OF WAR
. By allowing the Serbs to use the Chinese embassy as a tool of the Serbian war machines, China made herself an interested party in that war.
It cracked me up that your pals jumped over each other to 'Thank' you for your...ahhh...
...posts when you disputed what I said earlier as I toyed with you. Now all of you ended up looking many times foolish over.
