With the Allied nations pitted against Austria-Hungary, a key member of the Central Powers alliance, blessing was given by Britain and France to the proposition of the Yugoslav Committee to carve out a new country from the ruins of a beaten post-war Austria-Hungary, based upon the principle of national self-determination.
