On 18 September Faisal met in London and the next day and 23 had long meetings with Lloyd George, who explained the memory aid and the British position. Lloyd George stated that he was “in the position of a man who had inherited two groups of commitments, those of King Hussein and those of the French,” Faisal noted that the agreement “seemed to be based on the 1916 agreement between the British and the French.” Clemenceau responded about Memory Aid, refusing to travel to Syria and saying that the case should be left to the French to directly manage Fayçal. Hussein`s letter of February 18, 1916, McMahon appealed for 50,000 pounds of gold, more weapons, ammunition and food, saying Feisal was waiting for “no less than 100,000 people” to arrive for the planned revolt and McMahon`s response of 10 March 1916 confirming British approval of the applications and concluding the ten letters from correspondents. In April and May, Sykes discussed the benefits of a meeting in which Picot and the Arabs participated to network each other`s wishes. At the same time, logistics have been dealt with in the context of the promised revolt, and there has been growing impatience with what Hussein should do. Finally, at the end of April, McMahon was informed of the terms of Sykes-Picot and Grey and agreed that they would not be disclosed to the Arabs. [54] [55]:57-60 Almost immediately after the signing, the assumptions underlying the agreement were besieged and rejected. In 1917 and 1918, the British government made two radical political changes concerning the Middle East. The dynamics that fuelled this transformation came first from the entry of the United States into the war, but then from Britain`s own military and political weakness, from a militarily revitalized Turkey and finally from the rejection of British domination by the Iraqi people. This meant that the borders of the new states created after the First World War were not the product of an Anglo-French conspiracy in disguise, but were marked by negotiations that reflected British and French imperial weakness, the rise of powerful nationalism throughout the region and a new Turkish state that refused the imperial division of the former Ottoman Empire. The following eleven points included the formal agreements between Great Britain, France and Russia. Many sources claim that Sykes-Picot came into conflict with the Hussein-McMahon correspondence of 1915-1916 and that the publication of the agreement in November 1917 led to the resignation of Sir Henry McMahon.

[107] There were several differences, iraq being the most obvious in the British red territory, and less obvious, the idea that British and French advisers would have control of the area designated as an Arab state. Finally, while the correspondence did not mention Palestine, Haifa and Acre should be British and the brown territory (a reduced Palestine) should become internationalized. [108] A year later, Sir Mark Sykes and François Georges-Picot drafted, on behalf of Great Britain and France, another secret agreement on the division of the Middle East.
