(20 July 1936)

Following Turkish fears that Mussolini was seeking to use Italy's bases in the Dodecanese to extend its colonies in Asia Minor, an international conference was held in Montreux. Turkey obtained revision of the Lausanne Treaty, permitting fortification along the Dardanelles and Bosporus and imposing new restrictions on the aggregate tonnage of warships passing through these two straits.
