Event: Treaty of Versailles and League of Nations Covenant Signed
The Treaty of Versailles is signed between the Allied Powers and Germany. The League of Nations Covenant forms Part I of the Treaty. Article 22 of the Covenant stipulates that "certain communities formerly belonging to the Turkish Empire have reached a stage of development where their existence as independent nations can be provisionally recognised subject to the rendering of administrative advice and assistance by a Mandatory until such time as they are able to stand alone. The wishes of these communities must be a principal consideration in the selection of the Mandatory."
