After World War I, the Entente Powers had gathered at the Paris Peace Conference to break up the territory of the Ottoman Empire. But when the Entente States could not get a result from this Conference, they were gathered for the same purpose at the London Conference. The Entente States, unable to obtain anything from the London Conference, gathered in San Remo, Italy on April 18-26, 1920 to accept the Ottoman Empire’s wishes. The Entente States (England, France, Italy) tried to share the territory of the Ottoman Empire among themselves. They attempted to make the Ottoman Empire a small state by narrowing the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire. Therefore, they made some decisions to realize these initiatives. It was realized that the decisions taken at the San Remo Conference were very severe and that the Ottoman Empire would be erased from the stage of history with the implementation of the decisions taken at the conference. Therefore, the decisions taken at this conference could not be accepted by the National Liberation Movement which started in Anatolia.
