8 July: Berchtold tells Tschirschky about the Joint Ministerial Council meeting. He says even if the Emperor accepts Tisza’s view it is still possible to make the note unacceptable to Serbia. Tschirschky gives Berchtold the latest message from Berlin that “an action of the Monarchy against Serbia is fully expected and that Germany will not understand why we should neglect this opportunity of dealing a blow”.
Berchtold communicates this to Tisza hoping it will change his mind.
