Readers based in or visiting the UK may be interested in attending an event organised by UK Lawyers for Israel which is to be held in London on April 26th.
“The San Remo Conference, from 19 to 26 April 1920, was an even more important step in the creation of the modern State of Israel than the Balfour Declaration. At this conference the Allied powers agreed on the future of the Middle East territories liberated from the Turkish Empire. The vast majority was assigned for the creation of new Arab States under British or French mandates, but Palestine was allocated for the reconstitution of the Jewish National Home, under a British Mandate. The agreement transformed the policy expressed in the Balfour Declaration from a unilateral aspiration of the British Government into a binding international agreement.
UKLFI Charitable Trust is organising a special event in London, to celebrate the centenary of this Conference.
Leading speakers will discuss the historical background to the San Remo Conference, the legal effects of its resolutions and the relevance of these decisions to Israel and the Middle East today.”
