President Woodrow Wilson describes “profound sympathy for China”.


  1. Your headline is misleading. What Wilson said was “unjust to China” was “the whole set of concessions”, that is the territorial concessions of the nineteenth century, not the Treaty of Versailles. Whether by implication he may have considered the yield of Shandong to Japan as consequentially unjust is a different issue: he subscribed to the article in the Treaty which allowed it.
