Iran’s Protest Against the Establishment of Azerbaijan in 1918

Iran’s Protest

On August 28, 1918, the Persian Embassy in Istanbul on behalf of Persia presented a letter expressing a note of protest against the creation of a state called “Azerbaijan”.

The letter said:

The Embassy of Persia, Istanbul.

Dear Foreign Ministry,

As a result of the Russian-Ottoman peace treaty, a state called ‘Azerbaijan’ is being implemented in the Caucasus.

Given the fact that a region with such a name with a center in Tabriz exists within the borders of the state of Persia and that no state with such a name has ever existed, Persia is dazed and sees the need to revise this decision.

August 28, 1918.
