The main concern of this study was to investigate diplomatic obstacles in the implementation of Wilson`s the Fourteen Points in Europe World War I. Following World War I, delegates of the victorious countries gathered in Paris to establish peace in Europe on the basis of Wilson`s the Fourteen Points. The fulfillment of this aim faced serious diplomatic obstacles during peace negotiations. The present article thus aimed at answering this question that what the Fourteen Points aimed at and what diplomatic obstacles it faced in Europe after World War I. The hypothesis of this research is founded on the idea that the Fourteen Points' concentration on idealistic objectives regardless of the political realities of Europe after World War I led to the failure of fulfilling the Fourteen Points' aims.
The results of this historical study indicates that the incompatibility of Wilson`s the Fourteen Points with the diplomatic realities of after-war Europe, its incongruity with the interests of big European powers and the lack of agreement between the way peace negotiations were held up and presided, with the first principle of the Fourteen Points were the decisive diplomatic obstacles failing the fulfillment of the aims of the Fourteen Points in Europe.
