Chapter Summary

Nagorno- Karabakh was de facto independent since October 1917. It was governed by an inter-party council consisting of Tatars (Azeri) and Armenians. In June 1918, at the signing of the Treaty of Batumi, the contested regions between Armenia and Azerbaijan were mainly Zangezur and Nagorno-Karabakh. The Armenian National Council and the Seventh Assembly of Nagorno-Karabakh worked out a compromise accord with the Azerbaijani government. The Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh would acknowledge temporary Azerbaijani jurisdiction pending a final decision by the Allied Powers at the Paris Peace Conference, based on the granting of "territorial autonomy for all Karabakh and national-cultural autonomy for its Armenian population". General Thomson prepared a recommendation for the British Empire Delegation at the Peace Conference. The accompanying maps showed Nagorno-Karabakh as included in Azerbaijan, but Kars, Surmalu, Sharur, Nakhichevan, and Zangezur in Armenia.
