May 1918

After announcing Estonia's independence, and somewhat even before that, Estonian ambassadors abroad began active diplomatic work to gain support for Estonia's independence.
By May 1918, they had partly succeeded, because anything that could cause problems to Germany was useful to the Triple Entente.
Thus, Great Britain, France and Germany decided accept the Estonian Provincial Assembly as the highest power in Estonia de facto. Because of this, occupied Estonia gained the formal support of its western allies, and also the probability to restore the national independence if Germany lost the war.
