§ 1. Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in view of the refusal of the German Government to express any disapproval to Turkey-concerning the systematic and wholesale massacre of Christians which has taken place in Armenia, whether he can state if any action is being taken by any neutral Power to save the situation and to protect the great American and other missionary enterprises in Asiatic Turkey?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord Robert Cecil)
I do not know what steps neutral Governments may have taken in the matter. The Vatican has made earnest and repeated appeals both to the Turkish Government to stop the massacres and to the German and Austro-Hungarian Governments to bring pressure to bear on the Turkish Government with the same object.
