860H.48/1–1945: Telegram

The United States Representative in Bulgaria (Barnes) to the Secretary of State

37. In public addresses by prominent members of the Fatherland Front parties and through an avalanche of articles in the press, the Bulgarian public is being exhorted to give tangible form to the new Bulgarian policy of “brotherhood with all southern Slavs”30 by coming to the aid of the suffering population of Yugoslavia with relief supplies [apparent omission] by kind. No such appeals are made in behalf of Greece nor is public mention made of Bulgaria’s obligation under the armistice to provide food and other materials for Greece.

My next following telegram (No. 38)31 reports on this campaign.
