Agreement With Turkey In 1923

Chapter I. Interned civilians (Articles 1 to 3) Chapter II. Prisoners of war (Articles 4 and 5) Chapter III. Commission for the Implementation of the Agreement (Articles 6 and 7) It is considered that neither the Governments of the Powers which occupied Constantinople, nor their nationals, nor the Turkish Government, nor their nationals, are entitled to respect for small vehicles of any kind, light vessels, yachts and lighters which were thrown into their own ports or into ports which they occupy between 29 October 1914 and 1 January 1923. However, this provision does not affect the provisions of paragraph VI of today`s amnesty declaration, nor the rights that individuals may assert through other individuals on the basis of rights that were able to do so before October 29, 1914. We can understand some aspects of the persistent differences between Turkey and the West, which Western countries fear with the end of the treaty, that Turkey finds the justification for its intervention in Mosul, which belonged to Turkey for more than four centuries, until it lost it in the First World War. A Washington Post article, published yesterday, titled „Erdogan`s Turkey Fights the Ghosts of Sèvres 100 Years Later,“ quoted Turkish historian Nicholas Danforth of the twentieth century. Century saying: „Sèvres has been largely forgotten in the West, but it has a strong heritage in Turkey, where it helped fuel a form of nationalist paranoia that some scholars have called the Sèvres syndrome.“ The Washington Post then quoted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who, after the illegal maritime agreement between Turkey and Libya, said: „Thanks to this military and energy cooperation, we have overthrown the Treaty of Sèvres.“ Turkish subjects having their habitual residence in a territory separate from Turkey under the provisions of this Treaty shall become, under the conditions laid down by local law, ipsofacto nationals of the State to which that territory is transferred. The amount of pensions paid to the Council by States other than Turkey shall be credited to Turkey, in so far as they are payments made by Turkey on behalf of those States, by reason of the arrears charged to it. Subject to the provisions of this Treaty, the rights of industrial, literary and artistic property, as they existed on 1 August 1914, shall be re-established or re-established in the territory of the High Contracting Parties under the law of any contracting area, as well as the law of this Treaty in favour of persons entitled to their advantage and the opening of war, or by their legal representatives. Similarly, rights which, except for war during the war, could have been acquired by a legal application for the protection of industrial property or by the publication of a literary or artistic work shall be recognized and justified from the entry into force of this Treaty for the benefit of persons who would have been entitled to do so. During the Lausanne negotiations, some historians, including Hanioglu, felt that the Turkish delegation, led by Ismet Inonu, then foreign minister, had not found an effective strategy to cling to the crucial Aegean islands (with the exception of Imbros and Tenedos), which are essential to the country`s security.
