May 4, 1940
FIRST, contrary to the statement made by the Belgian King to the effect that Belgium would pursue a policy independent from the grouping of the great powers, Belgian defenses on land were solely directed against Germany. Liége was turned into the mightiest fortress in Western Europe, while Namur was fortified only against the east. The frontier with France remained unfortified.
These facts were established beyond a doubt by German reconnaissance planes flying along the Belgian border.
SECOND, documents found in Warsaw prove the cooperation of Polish and Belgian military authorities, especially as far as the exchange of information, material and news concerning Germany goes.
On May 1, 1937, the following agreement was made between the Belgian General Staff and the Polish Military Attaché in Paris:
"The Belgian General Staff with the consent of the Belgian War Office agrees to cooperation with the Second Division of the Polish General Staff concerning the exchange of information concerning the German Army.
"The Polish Military Attaché at Brussels will be entrusted with the task of acting as the liaison officer.
"The Polish Military Attaché reported to the Polish Government that to the best of his knowledge the Belgian Foreign Ministry had been informed of this cooperation."
The Belgian General Staff offered to Poland, Belgian information concerning the German Army, Navy and Air Force.
The Poles promised corresponding material to the Belgians for the middle of June, 1937.
