Other Muslims who attended the signing of the agreement were Datu Rajamuda, Datu Mohamammad, Abdulla Awarig and Hadji Mohawad. Marayaw Maynaat Bagay Tausug. They are heresy and are an agent by the U.S. military authorities in the Philippines to discuss, negotiate and, if possible, enter into a written agreement of character and scope, as explained below, with the Sultan [of Sulu], who, after the approval of this headquarters and the confirmation by the supreme executive authority of the United States, will dictate and control future social and political relations between the United States government and the inhabitants of the [Sulu] archipelago. The agreement did not extend to the northern area of Borneo that the sultanate had leased to the British North Borneo Company. At its peak, it stretched over the islands that bordered the western peninsula of Mindanao east of Palawan to the north. It also included the northeastern area of Borneo, which stretched from Marudu Bay to Tepian Durian (in present-day Kalimantan).   Another source stated that the area was extended by Kimanis Bay, which also crosses the borders of the Sultanate of Brunei.  After the arrival of Western powers such as the Spanish, British, Dutch, French, Germans, Sultan-Talassokratietie and sovereign political powers, they were abandoned by an agreement with the United States in 1915.   In 1962, the Philippine government, led by President Diosdado Macapagal, officially recognized the persistence of the Sulu sultan.  On May 24, 1974, Acting Sultan Mohammed Mahakuttah Kiram began and lasted until 1986. He was the last officially recognized Sulu Sultan in the Philippines after being recognized by President Ferdinand Marcos.
Idjirani said that as part of the agreement, the United States also agreed “to grant full protection to the Sultan of Sulu if the Sabah question arises in the future between the sultanate and any foreign authority.” In addition, a subsequent confirmation of 1903 between Sultan of Sulu and the British government, confirmed the Understanding of the Sultan of Sulu on the Treaty in 1878, i.e. it is in the form of an surrender.   During the British government north of Borneo, the British government continued to make the annual payment of the “transfer allowance” to the sultan and his heirs, and these payments were explicitly stated in the receipts as “transfer allowance”.  At a conference in London in 1961, at which a Filipino panel and a British group met to discuss the Philippines` assertion of North Borneo, the British body informed Congressman Salonga that the recipe text had not been questioned by the sultan or his heir.  At a Maphilindo meeting between the Philippine, Malay and Indonesian government in 1963, the Philippine government said that the Sultan of Sulu wanted 5,000 payments from the Malaysian government.  The first Malaysian Prime Minister at the time, Tunku Abdul Rahman, said he would return to Kuala Lumpur and answer the question.  Since then, the Malaysian Embassy in the Philippines has been handing over a cheque for RM5,300 (approximately ₱77,000 or $1,710) to legal aid to the heirs of the Sultan of Sulu. Malaysia considers the transaction to be an annual “transfer payment” for the disputed state, while the sultan`s descendants consider it a “rent”.  However, these payments have been suspended since 2013 following the attempted invasion of Sabah, with Malaysia viewing it as an act of violation of the 1903 Confirmation Agreement and its previous 1878 agreement.
