"...After We had requested this audience with you (the Archbishop of Canterbury)" I said, "We heard that the Pope of Rome had declared [the war's] legitimacy and recognized the Italian occupation of Ethiopia. This has been reported by the press."
(Emperor Haile Selassie First)

"...The world has already been saddened by the news of the massacre of many thousands of the people of Addis Ababa in retaliation for the bomb thrown at General Graziani in February. Such an atrocity and blood letting, which should not have taken place during this epoch, was a deliberate and premeditated act. All entrances to the city were closed and all those who attempted to escape were annihilated." (Emperor Haile Selassie First)
