The Ambassador in Turkey (MacMurray) to the Secretary of State

33. The declaration referred to in my 31, February 16, 5 p.m., was signed here yesterday and released for publication abroad after midnight. I shall not telegraph the text unless so instructed.

The Foreign Minister was quoted as saying after the signature that the modest document which had just been signed would perhaps be susceptible of preventing new complications in the Balkans.
