October 1925 representatives from France, Britain, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Poland and Czechoslovakia met in Locarno in Switzerland. After difficult negotiations, some important agreements were made:
- Germany finally accepted the borders with France and Belgium that were laid out in the Treaty of Versailles.
- Germany accepted that the Rhineland would remain a demilitarised zone.
- France and Germany agreed to settle any further disputes through the League of Nations.
Germany had shown more goodwill towards nations as a result and subsequently joined the League of Nations in 1926.
