An arbitration agreement or arbitral award arising out of a legal

relationship, whether contractual or not, which is considered as

commercial, including a transaction, contract, or agreement

described in section 2 of this title, falls under the Convention.

An agreement or award arising out of such a relationship which is

entirely between citizens of the United States shall be deemed not

property located abroad, envisages performance or enforcement

abroad, or has some other reasonable relation with one or more

foreign states. For the purpose of this section a corporation is a

citizen of the United States if it is incorporated or has its

principal place of business in the United States.
