German ambassador suggests to the Russian Foreign Minister
Posted on July 26th, 1914 by admin
German ambassador suggests to the Russian Foreign Minister that he has direct talks with Austria-Hungary. The Minister says Russia cannot tolerate the reduction of Serbia to a vassal state of Austria.
He takes up the German ambassador’s suggestion of direct talks and sees the Austrian ambassador.
After going through the ultimatum with the Austrian he says he thinks with minor modifications it could be made acceptable to Serbia and suggests Russia and Austria have direct talks to achieve that.
