Peking French-Chinese Treaty of 1860


a treaty forced upon China by France after China’s defeat in the Opium War of 1856–60; signed in Peking on Oct. 25, 1860.

Under the Peking French-Chinese Treaty, France obtained the same rights and indemnity as did Great Britain under the Peking Anglo-Chinese Treaty of 1860. The treaty also provided for the return of property that had been lost by missionaries and established a guarantee of payment of the indemnity from the customs income of China.
