Press Release: Paris Peace Conference, 1919: Belgium

Correspondent: FAITH TURNBULL, The Guardian

Why does Belgium want Topic A (Imperial versus Local Sovereignty) to be discussed in this committee?

BELGIUM — “The committee felt that it could better address the issues that the War left over by addressing the issues that come from Imperialism versus Local Sovereignty.

Though the disillusionment of the Ottoman Empire is a pressing issue, and one that must be dealt with, that issue can and will be dealt with within the premise of Topic A by the precedence we set during this conference and our time here in Paris.”
