5.—(1) Any privilege or immunity conferred by the provisions of Article 2 or 3 may be waived by the People's Republic of China. Waiver must always be express. A waiver shall be deemed to have been expressed by the People's Republic of China if it has been expressed by the head, or any person for the time being performing the functions of head, of the diplomatic mission in the United Kingdom of the People's Republic of China or, if there is no such mission, of the consular post concerned. Waiver of immunity in respect of civil or administrative proceedings shall not be held to imply waiver of immunity in respect of execution of the judgment, for which separate waiver shall be required.

(2) Nothing in the provisions of Article 2 or 3 shall be construed as in any way prejudicing the question whether, and in what circumstances, immunity from jurisdiction can be claimed by or on behalf of the People's Republic of China.
