Austria, Saturday, 1st August

Morning As war has not been declared Shebeko talks to Berchtold. He argues that Russian military measures "bare no hostile character". Austria-Hungary must "not solve the conflict with Serbia without consulting Russia". He suggests talks in London.

Military strategy Vienna now has to abandon its attack on Serbia. Conrad assures Moltke that Austria-Hungary will now "employ the main weight of our strength in the north" towards Russia, despite the difficulties in moving troops from the Serbian frontier.
