Chapter Summary

Azerbaijan in the Treaty of Batumi retained all its territory. Under Article IV of the Treaty it received the promise of Turkish military assistance for the restoration of security and order if needed. The Azerbaijani Musavat delegation to the Paris Peace Conference addressed a note to President Wilson (which is remarkable, since he was by no means the only person to decide on recognition by the League of Nations), making the following requests such as that the independence of Azerbaijan be recognized and that Azerbaijan be admitted to the League of Nations. On 16 June 1919 Azerbaijan signed a mutual defense treaty with Georgia, where it renounced claims to the Muslim parts of western Transcaucasia. Zangezur lies in the south of the Transcaucasus, being divided between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Zangezur is of political and strategic importance due to its geographical position.
