The Chargé to the Greek Government in Exile (Shantz) to the Secretary of State

Greek 264. In a release today obviously inspired by apprehension lest Bulgaria’s present overtures toward the Allies nullify her enemies and permit her to the detriment of Greece to escape consequences of her past, the Hellenic News Service here, after detailing grounds for condemnation of course Bulgaria has followed, lists five seemingly not unreasonable Greek demands in regard to Bulgaria which the Department may find of interest as an expression of views by an official Greek Government agency.

These five demands are quoted in my immediately following telegram.30 The full text of the release is being transmitted by despatch.31

Repeated to Murphy as 22.
