The German ambassador in Vienna, von Tschirschky, revailed in his report from November, 1914
an interesting suggestion of the former Turkish governor of Macedonia: „In relation on the still hesitating posture of Bulgaria which
counts in any case, also without active participation after ending of the war " [ in the meantime, the 1-st world broken out] „ to find it’s profit in Macedonia, Hilmi Pasha
expressed towards me, that there is a very good way out to spoil this business for the Bulgarians. One should giveBulgariaon the Peace Conference only the smallest,exclusively from Bulgarians inhabited part of Macedonia, from the actual Macedonia, however, to
make an independent state. This with approx. two million inhabitants would hold the scales with Albania. Greece will not oppose this solution if it is proposed by the winners with the
conclusion of the Peace Conference, especially if one leaves to them the possession of the city area of Salonik. The Greeks would thereby have also the other advantage, not to border directly
with Bulgaria , but to have a buffer State between them"...
