Outer Northwest China
Outer Northwest China (Chinese: 外西北; pinyin: Wài Xīběi) is the territories that were ceded from Qing China to the Russian Empire in the Convention of Peking, Sino-Russian North West Frontier Treaty, Treaty of Saint Petersburg (1881) and other Unequal Treaties. The territories are former parts of far western Xinjiang and northwestern Outer Mongolia and all of Tannu Uriankhai. Historically, Outer Northwest China was part of Dzungaria but was obtained by the Manchus after their defeat of the Dzungars in the 18th century.
