Bellflower Agreement

In September 2019, Bellflower`s elected leaders did something amazing. They voluntarily joined a settlement agreement in a federal action that forced cities in neighboring Orange County to build homeless shelters. The text of the declaration was published in the press a week after it was signed, on November 9, 1917. [232] Other related events took place in a short period of time, the two most important being the nearly immediate British military takeover of Palestine and the publication of the previously secret Sykes-Picot Agreement. This Franco-English treaty was negotiated in late 1915 and early 1916 between Sir Mark Sykes and François Georges-Picot, the primary agreements being defined in the form of a draft joint memorandum of 5 January 1916. [73] [74] Sykes was a British Conservative MP who had become a position of significant influence on British middle east policy, beginning with his seat on the De Bunsen Committee of 1915 and his initiative for the creation of the Arab Bureau. [75] Picot was a French diplomat and former consul general in Beirut. [75] His agreement defined the spheres of influence and control proposed in West Asia if the Triple Entente succeeded in defeating the Ottoman Empire during World War I[76][77] and divided many Arab regions into territories ruled by the United Kingdom and France. . . .
