Boris stresses neutrality

March 30, 1940

By wireless to the New York Times.

King Boris III of Bulgaria today received 100 Deputies of the Sobranje (the Bulgarian Parliament) and "reassured them his policy was one of neutrality and peace." The Deputies included "eleven Communists returned in the last election."
The king "praised the unity of the Sobranje in matters of foreign policy." He also expressed his "happiness that the country was united at a time when the world's political horizon was so obscured."
The King was joined at the audience with Queen Giovanna and their two children, Princess Marie Louise, 6, and three-year-old Crown Prince Simeon.
