Iran–Iraq War

The Anglo-Ottoman Convention of Constantinople

Jul, 1913
Iraq-Iran

The most important dispute was over the Shatt al-Arab waterway. Iran repudiated the demarcation line established in the Anglo-Ottoman Convention of Constantinople of November 1913. Iran asked the border to run along the thalweg, the deepest point of the navigable channel.
