A statement published by Ismet Pasha on behalf of the Angora Government today recognizes the full independence of Palestine and Mesopotamia.

After hearing High Commissioner Sir Percy Cox’s report on the situation in Mesopotamia, it was decided at the meeting of the British Cabinet today that there is to be no withdrawal from Mesopotamia for the present. Further reduction of the costs of maintaining the British Garrison was decided upon.
