Woodrow Wilson’s Arbitrary Verdict on the Borders of Armenia
In November 1920, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson’s Department of State proposed the boundary configuration of the First Republic of Armenia, which incorporated the Ottoman vilayets of Erzurum, Bitlis, Van, and Trabzon to provide Armenia with an outlet to the Black Sea. On December 6, the arbitrary verdict was presented at the Paris Peace Conference.
Unfortunately, the First Republic of Armenia was occupied by the 11th Army of RSFSR on December 3, 1920. The fate of Armenia would from now on be in the hands of the pro-Turkish Bolsheviks. However, the arbitrary verdict of Wilson is valid to this day!
