The Sykes-Picot agreement was a secret agreement between the British and French dictating the division of land following the demise of the Ottoman Empire after World War I. The agreement divided Arab lands into British and French protectorates. This agreement contradicted the Hussain-McMahon correspondence written in 1915-1916 and the Balfour Declaration of 1917.
