German ambassador asks if France is willing to advise Russia to stay out of the conflict as Austria does not intend to annex any Serbian territory. French Minister of Justice says he personally is willing to do this but he must consult the Prime Minister.
Senior official tells German ambassador he thinks Austria is acting with German approval and Germany is not trying to moderate Austria’s stance.
Paris advises Presidential party to abandon state visits and return to France as soon as possible. The journey home will take two days.
