HC Deb 28 September 1944 vol 403 cc463-4W
Mr. I. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Bulgarian troops are still in occupation of Greek and Yugoslav territory; and what steps are being taken to secure their early withdrawal.

Mr. Eden

Bulgarian forces still remain both on Greek and Yugoslav territory. His Majesty's Government consider it an essential prerequisite, before any armistice is concluded with Bulgaria, that all Bulgarian forces shall have been completely withdrawn from Greek and Yugoslav soil. His Majesty's Government, in consultation with the Greek Government, are carefully watching the position in Greek Thrace where the position is particularly confused.
