The outcome of the negotiations were the peace treaties, signed on 10 February 1947 by the Allies and Axis countries of the Second World War (without Germany and Japan). 15 September 1947 was especially important for Slovenia, when the Paris Peace Treaty with Italy was established, which granted Yugoslavia a large part of Primorska region.
