Bjork traveled with the Bruins to the Toronto bubble for the restart of the season, and he is among the top candidates to be second-ranked right winger, while veteran Ondrej Kase is working his way back after missing all last training camps. Throughout the conference, the new ideological and political agreements between the Balkan countries marked the spirit of the discussions. On the eve of the Paris peace conference, Greek Prime Minister Konstantinos Tsaldaris said: “We cannot talk about security if the [Bulgarian-Greek] border remains the same.” Footnote 72 In Paris, the Greek delegation insisted that, during its occupation of Greece in 1941-4, Bulgaria had drawn up “a systematic plan for the healthy eradication of the Greek population”. . Denationalize these mainly Greek regions. Greece said that “the Bulgarian invasion would always be a threat to Greece” because “the Bulgarian people are still vulnerable to aggression and violence because of deep psychological causes.” During discussions in the Political and Territorial Commission for Bulgaria, Greek representatives called for a “correction of the border” on Bulgarian territory in order to give it “a sense of security”. According to the Greek opinion, this territorial change was urgent in the run-up to discussions between Bulgaria and Yugoslavia in favour of a Balkan federation.Footnote 73 Contrary to such strong territorial claims against Bulgaria, demanded by Great Britain and the United States, Greek representatives lowered their demands from Italy at meetings of the Political and Territorial Commission for Italy. Footnote 74 With the threat of the Greek civil war in 1946, ideological engagement coincided with national interests, because the Greek royalist government depended heavily on Western support to contain the communists. A major diplomatic confrontation was averted when the Soviets announced on 25 March 1946 that they would withdraw their troops within six weeks. President Truman boasted that his threats of a possible military confrontation had been the deciding factor, but this seems unlikely. The Soviet Union and Iran had reached an agreement that gave the Soviets an oil concession to Iran. With this promise in hand, the Soviets held their share of the bargain and deposed their troops from Iran in April 1946. Almost immediately, the Iranian government rejected the oil deal and, with the help and the Council of the United States, broke the revolt in northern Iran.
The Soviets were furious, but they gave up on reintroducing their armed forces to Iran for fear of creating an escalating conflict with the United States and Britain.
