Adolf Hitler gives an interview to G. Ward Price, chief correspondent for the Daily Mail in Britain, in which he promises to respect all of the non-military provisions of the Treaty of Versailles and insists that he only wants peace.

Hitler explains:

"The act of restoring German military sovereignty touches only upon those points in the Treaty of Versailles which have in any case long since lost their legal validity by virtue of the refusal of the other states to perform their respective obligations to reduce arms. The German Government is conscious of the fact that unilateral measures can never prompt a revision of the territorial provisions of international treaties. ...

I am able, in the same proclamation with which I have reestablished the military sovereignty of the German Reich, to plead loud and clear for peace and to offer our cooperation in securing that peace. The German Volk does not want war; it wants only the same rights as all others. That is all."
