Franco-British Agreement on Mandatory Borders (1920)

An agreement between Britain and France establishing the border between their Mandatory territories of Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. The agreement followed the division of mandates established at the San Remo Conference, but preceded the establishment of the actual mandates in 1922. The border between British-controlled Palestine and French-controlled Lebanon and Syria was amended by a further agreement in 1923.
