Britain, however, had no intention of relinquishing any of its mandated territories. 47 As far as policy in the Middle East was concerned, the Fascist government sought to conclude the border modifications that Italy was promised when it entered the First World War, to support the independence of Middle Eastern countries from British and French domination, and to increase Italian political and commercial penetration in the region.

Formal negotiations between London and Rome regarding that frontier began in November 1933. 51 In January 1935 France ceded to Italy territory on the southern frontier of Tripolitania as well as on the Eritrean-French Somaliland border as part of an agreement between Mussolini and the French Foreign Minister, Pierre Laval. 52 *** Italy’s ambivalent approach towards the mandate system in the Middle East has produced different interpretations of its nature and purpose. 56 In fact, from 1924 onwards Italy adopted a somewhat obstructive position regarding the British Mandate in Palestine.
