Statement from the Bulgarian Foreign Office

Quote
The Tsar is greatly concerned with the situation unfolding on our western border as the Yugoslav experiment begins to fail, endangering the stability of the entire region. Bulgaria is closely engaged with the progression in the Yugoslav Civil War, and will send diplomats to the Croatian Republic to establish dialogue with what may soon be a significant regional power. In these trying times, Bulgaria will naturally welcome any refugees from the lands ceded to Yugoslavia under the Neuilly-Sur-Seine treaty, as well as any with proof of Bulgarian ancestry.

The Tsar addresses the nation!

Quote from: Tsar Boris III
Greetings, Bulgarians.

For years now, we have watched the events unfolding on our western border with a mix of horror and outrage. The Yugoslavian experiment has dramatically failed, the multiethnic Frankenstein nation collapsing in on itself as Croatians, Bosnians, and Macedonians rise up against hamfisted Serb rule. Ever since the false peace of 1919, crafted by the imperialist West, these independent peoples have been neglected and subjugated by the Yugoslavian government, and the situation in Macedonia in particular has been a source of much pain for Bulgaria. Our brother people, forced to kneel to barbaric Serb rulers intent on destroying local culture and autonomy, intent on forcing the Macedonian people into a state of permanent servitude. Forced to languish under a hodgepodge government that cared not for her people! And, Macedonians have been forced to fight for their Serb oppressors and against their national interests in the costly Balkan wars. Forced to prop up a nation that is not theirs!

Bulgaria can no longer stand by.

That is why I have authorized a special military operation to aid our brothers in Macedonia in their fight for liberation from Serb tyranny. We offered the Serb government in Belgrade a chance to join us in recognizing a de-Serbified Macedonian state, yet they rejected our generous terms and spat in our face. Rather than make a grand gesture in favor of self-determination while also focusing on keeping their failing nation from complete collapse, they have chosen to seek the continued oppression of the Macedonian people - and to stand against the might of our great nation.

People of Bulgaria! The time for languishing under an unjust peace is over. Together, we will unite with our brothers in Macedonia and put down the rabid Yugoslav beast at last! Glory to Bulgaria!

Following this speech (aired across Bulgaria and distributed to international news outlets), Bulgarian diplomats released the following statement.

Quote
The Tsardom of Bulgaria seeks to assist the IMRO in freeing Macedonia from the oppressive, collapsing Yugoslav state, and also seeks to liberate integral parts of Bulgaria forcibly annexed into Yugoslavia by the false peace of 1919. Bulgarian troops have strict orders to limit their operations to these regions, and Bulgaria will take no action against Serbia proper unless provoked. Bulgaria calls on Yugoslavia to peacefully vacate these regions, illegitimately forced under their rule, and prioritize their rapidly deteriorating domestic affairs.

Due to the ongoing Balkan crisis, Tsar Boris III will unfortunately be unable to attend the Olympics. However, Prime Minister Mushanov and other high-ranking dignitaries will lead the Bulgarian delegation to Berlin.

Bulgaria denounces the horrific acts committed by the rogue Serb government in Sarajevo. While the Tsar will address the nation on the matter shortly, he has declared an immediate general amnesty for Bosnian refugees and other minorities under the Serb jackboot, who will be welcomed into Bulgaria and liberated Macedonia with open arms.

ANNOUNCEMENT!

I am pleased to report that we have come to an agreement with Yugoslavia for a one-month humanitarian ceasefire. Bulgaria is committed to ensuring the safety of the Bosniak people, and we hope this action will allow refugees from the conflict in Bosnia to receive safe haven in friendly countries. We will work with our friends in Turkey and abroad to assist refugees from Bosnia in any way possible, including transport across the Tsardom, humanitarian and medical aid, and peaceful assimilation efforts.

Quote
The Tsardom of Bulgaria and the Kingdom of Yugoslavia hereby agree to a one month humanitarian ceasefire to allow for the peaceful evacuation of Bosnian refugees to Bulgarian territory. The parties to this agreement forswear offensive action against the other for the duration of this ceasefire.

i) Current front lines will be maintained during the ceasefire.

ii) Bulgaria will allow the delivery of humanitarian shipments to the city of Skopje, however, military shipments will not be permitted to enter the city. Bulgarian customs officials will reserve the right to inspect shipments to ensure compliance. Yugoslavian officials in Skopje will also pledge to protect the wellbeing of the civilians of Skopje, and will ensure humanitarian shipments designated for civilian use are appropriated correctly.

iii) The city of Dimitrovgrad, and Nova Bardo on the Bulgarian side will serve as the primary transfer point for Bosnian refugees out of Yugoslavia. Yugoslavian, Bulgarian, and Turkish customs officials will work in tandem to process these refugees, and Bulgaria will assume responsibility for travel once they cross into Bulgarian-held territory.
