Extract from Mr. Neville Chamberlain's Speech in the House of Commons on March 14, 1938

"I am informed that Field-Marshal Goering on March 11 gave a general assurance to the Czech Minister in Berlin-an assurance which he expressly renewed later on behalf of Herr Hitler-that it would be the earnest endeavour of the German Government to improve German-Czech relations. In particular, on March 12, Field-Marshal Goering informed the Czech Minister that German troops marching into Austria had received the strictest orders to keep at least 15 kilometres from the Czech frontier. On the same day the Czechoslovak Minister in Berlin was assured by Baron von Neurath that Germany considered herself bound by the German-Czechoslovak Arbitration Convention of October 1925."
