Title
The Cairo Conference, 1921 (b/w photo)
Description
The 1921 Cairo Conference was convened in order to establish a unified British policy for the Middle East, about the future of Iraq; in particular to resolve the conflicting policies defined in the McMahon letters (1915), the Sykes-Picot agreement (1916) and the Balfour Declaration (1917). Winston Churchill, the newly appointed Colonial Secretary, called all the British Military Leaders and civil administrators in the Middle East to a conference at the Semiramis hotel in Cairo to discuss these issues.
