2 July: Tschirschky has an audience with the Emperor. He passes on the Kaiser’s regrets that he is unable to attend the Archduke’s funeral.
The Emperor says he thinks the future looks very black and he hopes the Kaiser also sees the threat Serbia poses to the Monarchy.
In line with what he has said to Berchtold, Tschirschky tells the Emperor, Germany is resolutely behind the Monarchy defending its vital interests. And, he adds, the general political situation and the attitude of other powers has to be considered and the ground carefully prepared.
