§ 8. Mr. WHITEHOUSE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if there is any information respecting the position in the Balkans which he could appropriately communicate to the House?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Edward Grey)
The situation remains as I described it last night. Bulgaria has appealed to Russia to secure a cessation of hostilities. Greece and Servia demand that certain conditions should be accepted by Bulgaria before they agree to an armistice. I may sum up the attitude of the Great Powers by saying that since war began last year their policy has been to keep in touch with each other, to promote peace in the Balkans when they could do so by diplomatic influence, to abstain from forcible intervention and to claim nothing for themselves individually. It is not likely that agreement between the Great Powers could be preserved if they abandoned the various points of this policy.
§ Mr. NOEL BUXTON
Have the Powers made any communication to the Turkish Government in regard to the danger of violating the Enos Midia frontier?
§ Sir E. GREY
I am not aware that the Powers have made any collective communication to the Turkish Government on the question. I dealt with that point last night.
