A second agreement was concluded in Belgrade on 1 November 1944, supplemented by two additional agreements signed in Belgrade on 7 December. The new agreement provided for the creation of a unified Yugoslav government to replace the NKOJ and the government-in-exile. It retained the democratic federal structure created during the struggle for national liberation, understanding that the final form of government would be determined by a Constituent Assembly that was to be elected three months after the liberation of the entire country. Until the Assembly considered the matter, the king was therefore forbidden to return to Yugoslavia. The royal prerogatives would be assumed by a council of regents, while the legislative power would be placed in the hands of the AVNOJ. Democratic rights and freedoms would be guaranteed, including the free activity of all political parties and associations, except those that have cooperated with the occupying forces. Cadogan asked the king if he had a message for Churchill. The king said, “Please tell Mr. Churchill that.

I was shocked by this agreement and I will not accept it. Cadogan then informed the king that Churchill expressed his dismay at Subasic`s sudden departure to Moscow, without first reporting to Churchill and King Peter. He also said he had not been consulted by Subasic on the details of the deal. So Churchill sent, Cadogan said, a cable to the British ambassador in Moscow asking Subasic to go immediately to London to report to King Peter and Churchill. Churchill also sent a cable to Stalin informing him that neither Churchill nor King Peter von Subasic had been consulted on the agreement at his conference with Tito, and expressly asked him not to take any decision until Churchill had had the opportunity to obtain a full report on the agreement and until King Peter had the opportunity, to study the same thing. . “He saw King this afternoon, December 28. King plans to prepare a major memorandum explaining the unconstitutionality of the current agreements. He told me that he would send copies if they were ready, to Churchill, to the British Foreign Office, to Ambassador Patterson and could even send copies to Moscow. King decided to insist on designating the reign. Princess Aspasia and Queen Alexandra pressure King not to scream. During the review of the Tito-Subasic agreement, Churchill said, “I advise you to sign this agreement, because it helps the constitutional monarchy to some extent and it is not as bad as it seems. If you sign it, there is always a chance for you.

If you refuse to sign Tito, he can form his own government and banish you from Yugoslavia forever. I can`t choose for you. It has to be your own choice. You are your master. Don`t think about it or hurry. You can take your time and we will continue to talk about it. Churchill suggested that King and Subasic meet with him on Friday at 5:00 p.m. Mr. King agreed. …” The first agreement concluded on the 16th Cooperation between the NKOJ and the Government-in-Exile in the struggle for the liberation of Yugoslavia from the fascist occupying powers and their collaborators provided for cooperation between the NKOJ and the government-in-exile in the framework of the struggle for the liberation of Yugoslavia from the fascist occupying powers and their collaborators. .
