Official Statements of War Aims and Peace Proposals, December 1916 to November 1918

ARMISTICE WITH TURKEY-BRITISH STATEMENT MADE IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS1
October 31, 1918
I ask leave to make a statement which I know will be of interest to the House. Some days ago General Townshend was liberated in order to inform the British Admiral in command in the Ægean that the Turkish Government asked that negotiations should be opened immediately for an armistice between Turkey and the Allies. A reply was sent that if the Turkish Government sent fully accredited plenipotentiaries, Vice Admiral Calthorpe was empowered to inform them of the conditions on which the Allies would agree to a cessation of hostilities and sign an armistice on these conditions on their behalf.The Turkish plenipotentiaries arrived at Mudros early this week, and an armistice was signed by Vice-Admiral Calthorpe on behalf of the Allied Governments last night, and came into operation at noon today.It is not possible as yet to publish the full terms of the armistice, but they include a free passage for the Allied fleets through the Bosphorus to the Black Sea, the occupation of the forts in the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus necessary to secure their passage, and the immediate repatriation of all Allied prisoners of war.
