Paris Peace Conf. 771.72/2: Telegram

The Chargé in Serbia ( Dodge ) to the Chargé in France ( Bliss )

10. For the Secretary of State and for repetition to the Department of State. It is reported that Roumania has complained to the Allies that the Servian Military authorities are interning large numbers of Roumanians in the Banat. Servian Chief of Staff assures [Page 406] me that only between thirty and forty Roumanians have been interned temporarily pending investigation owing to their provocative behaviour to the Servian troops and incitements to disorder.

Roumanian Prime Minister arriving here in a few days en route to Paris is expected to confer regarding Banat.

I have communicated foregoing to the Secretary of State.
