During the armistice period, the Armenians were active again. The Armenians believed that their demands for the formation of a great Armenia would be accepted by Britain and France. The Paris Peace Conference took a decision concerning the Armenians at a meeting held on January 30, 1919. This decision gave the Armenians a lot of hope. With the petition of the Armenian Patriarch Zaven Greek Patriarch to the British High Commission, the Entente States had encouraged the occupation of Anatolia. Because if such an occupation had been occurred, they could obtain the Eastern Anatolia. In this regard, they had attacked on the Muslim villages of the Eastern Anatolia. Kazım Karabekir in this front engaged in battle with the Armenians and defeated them decisively. Gümrü Peace Treaty was signed between Turks and Armenians. The dream of Great Armenia had failed. Armenians cooperated with French occupation forces in the Southern Front. They built up forces to help French soldiers in Cilicia, Aintab and Edessa. But after the French forces withdrew from the region, they left alone and failed eventually. In the Lozan Conference, the Armenian problem also was discussed but the Armenians couldn’t find a strong support in the conference.
