a conference of the accredited ambassadors in Constantinople of Russia, Germany, Great Britain, France, Austria-Hungary, and Italy and a representative of Turkey.

The conference took place from October 24 (November 5) to November 18 (30).

It ended without the adoption of any resolutions because of conflicts among the participants. On Mar. 24 (Apr. 5) 1886, the ambassadors of the countries that participated in the conference signed a protocol according to which only a Bulgarian prince could be the governor-general of Eastern Rumelia, which remained an autonomous province of Turkey on the basis of the decisions of the Berlin Congress of 1878.
