Chapter Summary

The regions of Ardahan, Artvin, Olti, Thortum, Isgir, Baiburt, Gumushkume and Eastern Lazistan, including the region of Trebizond and Karasoon (Kerasund), were to be given to Georgia. This claim got wide attention in the Soviet press, and subsequently also in the Turkish press. The area claimed was of strategic importance, since Turkey could not attack Batumi from the South when these territories would form part of the Georgian SSR. In 1945, just after the end of the World War II, it was the Armenian Diaspora in the United States who pleaded for a return of certain territories in Turkey to the Armenian SSR.
