Signed in the city of Baku, Azerbaijan
I: The High Contracting Parties, convening in friendship, announce a general policy of alliance and mutual security, entering a customs union and pledging to aid the other in the case of foreign aggression, and not to act against the interests of either Party without mutual consultation. Furthermore, the two parties confirm the legitimacy of all presently existing borders between them.

III: Iran shall assume full responsibility for the security and patrolling of the Strait of Hormuz, including in Omani territorial waters, with the collection of customs and tolls likewise delegated to the Imperial Iranian Navy. These patrols, etc., will be done in accordance with internationally-accepted protocols regarding the law of the sea.
IIIa: Any dues, customs, tariffs, or other charges levied by the Imperial Iranian Navy shall be distributed between the High Contracting Parties equally.

They will by no means object to the presence of up to [1 unit] of the Iranian navy and the construction of defenses on either side of the Strait of Hormuz.
V: The Strait of Hormuz shall remain open to all vessels of peaceful intent belonging to nations not currently considered combatants. The passage of lawful civilian ships will, in times of war, be treated peacefully.

VI: The High Contracting Parties agree to advise their religious leadership (the Iranian Maraji and the Imamate of Oman, respectively) to examine through fiqh means of acknowledging the opposing schools of thought as legitimate under Islamic law. Furthermore, both parties consent to submit policies of full religious toleration for the Ibadi school within Iran and the Usuli Shi'a school with Oman, and agree for full access to pilgrimage sites for nationals of all faiths.
VII: The Sultanate of Oman shall submit to its cabinet a proposal for the autonomy of the southern Musandam province, with regards to its Kumzari majority with separate socio-cultural traditions than the rest of Oman. Should this proposal be approved by the Sultan, the Expansive State of Iran pledges to donate no less than [20 credits] of development aid within six months to a new Governate of South Musandam, and will dispatch ministers internationally to secure support for further development.
Both of these treaties are significant accomplishments for the Islamic world and the cause of the Greater Iranian people. We humbly put them forth before the representatives of Oman and Azerbaijan and hope they join us on the international stage as brothers and partners.
