Sevr Agreement Map

Turkey is committed to recognizing the full force of all treaties or agreements that may be concluded by allied powers with states that exist or are born in the future in all or part of the former Russian empire, as it existed on 1 August 1914, and to recognize the borders of such states as they were established there. In addition, the Financial Commission, in agreement with the Ottoman Public Debt Council and the Ottoman Imperial Bank, is committed to regulating and improving the Turkish currency in a manner that is recognized as appropriate and just. At the same time, according to the Sevr Treaty, the question of ownership of Batumi and Adjara and Samtskhe-Javakheti remained “open” and had to be formally resolved by a bilateral agreement between Georgia and Armenia. But since the possibilities of the Armenian lobby in the West were not comparable to Georgia`s possibilities, virtually none of the Armenian nationalists doubted that the Treaty of Sevres “gives Great Armenia” all of South Georgia with Batumi. If, in both cases, the States concerned have failed to determine the border by mutual agreement at the time of the Article 89 decision, the border in question is determined by the Allied authorities, who also provide for their traceability on the spot. The organizations provided by the various allied or neutral powers work, under the direction of the Turkish government, in the organization and training of gendarmerie officers approved under Article 158, but their number must not exceed 15%. of this force. The Special Agreements of the Inter-Alle Commission covered by Article 200 determine the proportion of these companies according to their nationality and set the conditions for their participation in the various missions entrusted to them under this article. The borders between Armenia and Azerbaijan and Georgia are defined by a direct agreement between the states concerned.

Once the persons concerned have acquired the nationality of one of these states, the Government of that State undertakes, at the request of the power in question and at the joint request of all allied powers, to take all necessary measures to ensure the prosecution and punishment of these persons. There was no general agreement among the Kurds on what the borders of Kurdistan should be, as the territories of the Kurdish colony and the political and administrative borders of the region are divided. [18] The contours of Kurdistan as a unit were proposed in 1919 by Erif Pasha, who represented the Society for the Reception of Kurdistan (Kondistan Teali Cemiyeti) at the Paris Peace Conference. He defined the region`s borders as follows: if an agreement cannot be reached on such an agreement, Greece and Turkey will have the right to address the Council of the League of Nations, which sets out the terms of such an agreement. The following agreements determine any issue that is not resolved by this treaty and that may arise from the application of the provisions of this section. Ninety-five years ago today, European diplomats gathered at a porcelain factory in the Paris suburb of Sévres and signed a contract to transform the Middle East from the ashes of the Ottoman Empire. The plan collapsed so quickly that it is almost unsusted, but the ephemeral contract of Sévres, nothing less than the Sykes-Picot agreement, which was the subject of endless debate, had consequences that we still see today.
