We are pleased to announce an agreement has been reached to save Central Europe from collapse:
Quote
Krakow conference
1) An independent organization will be created, called "European monetary fund". Its goal will be borrow a loan on the markets and to then propose the loan to the tchecoslovaquian republic.
2) The solvability of this agency will be guaranteed jointly by France, the UK, Italy and Poland, proportionnally on their current GDP. The economic gains made by this organization will be proportionnally redistributed to each participant based on their GDP as well.
3) Each participant will appoint one member. And each participant will jointly appoint the President of this organization. The president of this organization will closely monitor how the money being loaned to the tchecoslovaquia government is going to be spent so that this follows the current way of Poland, the UK, Italy and France of managing their respective economy

Statement from the Elysee

The Hohenzollerns have again shown their true colors and have violated the sovereignty of a neutral and sovereign state of Europe. The German invasion of Austria is an unacceptable violation of the European peace and a shattering of the norms that preserved peace in the center of the continent for 20 years.

Germany must withdraw at once from Austria or consider diplomatic relations with the French government broken. If my government does not hear a response within 24 hours the French Republic will begin a partial mobilization in line with our and our allies’ obligations in the Stresa Front.

Excerpt of Foreign Secretary's Speech to Parliament on the Baltic Situation

...In the event of any action which clearly threatened Latvian independence, and which the Latvian Government accordingly considered it vital to resist with their national forces and expressed such to His Majesty’s Government, His Majesty's Government would feel themselves bound at once to lend the Latvian Government all support in their power. They have given the President of Latvia an assurance to this effect. I may add that the French Government have authorized me to make it plain that they stand in the same position in this matter as do His Majesty's Government.

Daladier Condemns Habsburg Invasion in Address to the National Assembly

“Yesterday evening, the Hungarian government, in violation of the terms of the Treaty of Paris, and in an unprovoked and unannounced act of aggression, invaded the sovereign territory of a French treaty ally. This is an act which the French government condemns. The French Republic demands an immediate end to hostilities and the withdrawal of all Habsburg forces from Czechoslovak territory. If such an end to hostilities is not effected within the next 48 hours, the French Republic will be forced to consider extra-diplomatic efforts in line with its obligations under the Little Entente and the Pact of Organization.

I wish to share with all of you what we are doing now. As of midnight tonight the Hungarian ambassador in Paris and his staff are declared persona non grata and must immediately depart. The French ambassador in Budapest has been withdrawn. All Hungarian assets in French financial institutions are hereby frozen. As we speak, our government is in close contact with our allies in Prague, and our partners throughout Europe, discussing all possible and practical measures which can be undertaken to afford aid to the Czechoslovak Republic.

Liberté, égalité, fraternité is more than a motto; it is an expression of French virtue, and we shall not abandon that virtue in the face of hardship. As we meet tonight the flame of Czechoslovak liberty is burning brightly against the threat of a renewed Habsburg tyranny which threatens to spread its sclerotic and medieval wings across the breadth of Central Europe. France shall not abandon her ally in the face of such a threat.”

Daladier Announces a Declaration of War against Germany
Source: Past Daily
Quote
Men and Women of France,

Since the beginning of this week, Czechoslovakia has been the victim of the most brutal and most cynical of aggressions. Her frontiers have been violated. Her cities are being bombed. Her army is heroically resisting the invader.

The responsibility for the blood that is being shed falls entirely upon the Kaiser’s Government. The fate of peace was in Hugenberg’s hands. He chose war. France and England have made countless efforts to safeguard peace. This very morning they made a further urgent intervention in Berlin in order to address to the German Government a last appeal to reason and request it to stop hostilities and to open peaceful negotiations.

Germany met us with a refusal. She had already refused to reply to all the men of goodwill who recently raised their voices in favour of the peace of the world. She therefore desires the destruction of Czechoslovakia, so as to be able to dominate Europe quickly and to enslave France.

In rising against the most frightful of tyrannies, in honoring our word, we fight to defend our soil, our homes, our liberties. I am conscious of having worked unremittingly against the war until the last minute.

I greet with emotion and affection our young soldiers, who now go forth to perform the sacred task which we ourselves did perform before them. They can have full confidence in their chiefs, who are worthy of those who have previously led France to victory.

The cause of France is identical with that of Righteousness. It is the cause of all peaceful and free nations. It will be victorious.

Men and women of France!

We are waging war because it has been thrust on us. Every one of us is at his post, on the soil of France, on that land of liberty where respect of human dignity finds one of its last refuges. You will all cooperate, with a profound feeling of union and brotherhood, for the salvation of the country.

Vive la France! Vive la Republique!
