SERVIA'S CLAIMS. [Newspaper Article] — Auckland Star — 30 May 1913
SERVIA'S CLAIMS. LEAGUE'S TREATY NULLIFIED BY POWERS , INTERVENTION. BELGRADE, May 20. M. Pasics (Premier of Servia), speaking in the Skupstehina yesterday, said the treaty with Bulgaria was based on an hypothesis, but even this had exceeded its scope. The Powers, he declared, bad annulled a vita! clause and forced Servia to abandon her outlet to the Adriatic Sea and the Albanian territory which she had earmarked as conquered. Servia was, therefore, entitled to compensation elsewhere, wUich Bulgaria refused. Moreover, owing to the prolongation of the war, Bulgaria asked for and secured Pervia's help, including 50000 men to take part in the siege of Adrianople. Servian artillery brought about the capture of Adrianople. M. Pasics emphatically declared that Hervia was on friendly terms with Bulgaria, and intends to maintain the alliance in the years to come. The speech has made a good impression.
