Iraq was freed from the Turks during the Great War. It was recognised as an independent State, to be placed under a Mandatory Power, and the mandate was allotted to Great Britain. On December 14, 1927, a treaty-was signed between Great Britain and Iraq, by which the former undertook to recognise the latter as an independent State. Iraq was admitted to membership of the League of Nations on October 4, 1932, and the mandate was terminated.
