From the Ambassador in Extraordinary Mission in Constantinople (Kuehlmann) to the Reichskanzler (Bethmann Hollweg)


Nr. 129
Pera, 24 February 1917


Talaat Pasha confirmed to me in person that he plans to take a new line on all questions concerning the nationality policy. He had both the Catholic as well as the ecumenical Armenian patriarchs brought to him and informed them that the Armenian population could be sure that their constitutional rights would not be touched. What the previous government had been forced to put into action on the grounds of military necessity should, if possible, be rectified. Appropriate orders had been sent to all the provincial authorities.
