GREECE REFUSES DIRECT PARLEY WITH THE TURKS — Constantine Voices Views of Greek Government on Near East Settlement. ATHENS, Feb. 11.—(By Associated Press)—-Direct negotiations for the settlement of Near Eastern problems between tiie Greek and Turkish Na tionalists are impossible, according to King Constantine. He indicated he was not averse to conversations between Greek rep resentatives and delegates chosen hy the Sultan’s government, if such procedure was dictated by the inter esfs of Greece. Constantine made it evident that his government would refuse to recognize Mustapha Kernel Pasha, head of the Turkish Nation alists or his delegates. Constantine declared he would make no overtures to former Pre mier Venizelos, who is in France, stating M. Venizelos must take (he initiative. “I do not recognize Mustaphn i Kernel as a person worthy to b>j dealt with," said the King. "Why j does Europe make all this fuss over i an outlaw? Mustapha Kernel is only I a big bluff; a big bubble, and we , could blow him off the map as we j would a fly off the table. If it seems I wise after the London conference t for Greece to enter into negotia j tions with the responsible Turkish j Government in Constantinople, we I will not hesitate to take the step.J but any discussion must take cogni-; zance of our right to hold Smyrna and Thrace. This is not an imper-J ialistic policy, it is our national! policy. We must protect our peo pie outside the home land.” Constantine said that he had noi information that the United States would soon recognize him, but added that he was naturally hopeful that such action would be taken. Me said that he was glad to see that Presi dent-elect Harding had expressed j friendly sentiments toward Greece | in a communication to a Greek Am erican Republican Club. Reports that the Greek army in Asia Minor had suffered a defeat in recent operations, were denied by Constantine who said that the Greeks had won a complete victory. Constantine's trip to Smyrna and Thrace has been postponed until after the Lotjdon conference, Feb ruary 28. ' D’Annunzio Assails Italian Government in Fiume Book LONDON.
