Subject

Reactions after the Declaration of Greater Lebanon

Description

Buenos Aires
September 11, 1920

The Emir Arslan introduced himself to the legation this morning, along with seven delegates from the Lebanese Alliance. He asked me, on behalf of the Lebanese residents in the Argentinian Republic, to telegraph Your Eminence to obtain official confirmation of the proclamation of the independence of Greater Lebanon, which took place on September 1 in Beirut. He also asked if the flag raised on this occasion could be adopted now as the Lebanese flag.
The delegates wish to convey (to the French Government) on this occasion, " a testimony of their eternal gratitude to France."
