After World War I, France and Britain secretly carved up the Middle East, once part of Turkey’s Ottoman Empire. They would later settle boundary disagreements with the 1920 San Remo Agreement, which the US State Dept. once called the San Remo Agreement on Oil. It reaffirmed the 1917 Balfour Declaration favoring the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
