Title

Affaires Étrangeres, Télégramme, Beyrouth, le 23 Décembre 1920

Subject

Reports after the Declaration of Greater Lebanon

Description

December 23, 1920.

“Certificates of Identity" currently issued in Greater Lebanon are drawn upon an old (sample) from the Ottoman Ministry of Interior and such that the holder is an Ottoman citizen. This last mention offends the Lebanese: they find it in contradiction with the proclamation of the State of Greater Lebanon [...].”
The heading " Ottoman Empire "will be replaced for passports currently issued in Syria and thus conceived:" the French Republic mandated in Syria and Lebanon.” The indication of nationality will be replaced by that of the origin until we can mention a Syrian or Lebanese nationality.
