Andrassy requested the great powers to make a joint demand to the Porte for some basic reform in Bosnia.

I am just wondering are the bold-faced expressions used in a correct manner. Can you make a demand in English, and if so can it be used in this way.
PS.This is my sentence.

Thank you in advance

    You can make a demand to (someone, some entity) for something, yes.

    My brother and I made a joint demand to our mother for an apple pie. She handed us a cookbook.
