From the Ambassador in Extraordinary Mission in Constantinople (Kuehlmann) to the Foreign Office

Telegraphic Report

Nr. 1209
Pera, 17 November 1916
Reply to Tel. No. 13011

After in-depth discussion of the situation in Smyrna and with the consent of Marshall Liman von Sanders, I am convinced that our suggestion to send Armenians to Germany would raise the distrust of the Turks and, thus, cause political damage. Upon the intervention of the Marshal, the deportations of the Armenians from Smyrna have stopped. Report follows.
