Morning: Sazonov is in a good mood when he sees Pourtalès. He thinks the Serbian answer is a way forward. He tells him “the moment has come to seek the means by an exchange of views among the Powers” and to “build a golden bridge” for Austria. He is confident the Austrians will negotiate. Pourtalès does not know if Vienna is prepared to modify its demands but says it is time to put an end to Serbian provocations. Sazonov seems to agree saying it must be possible to give Serbia a well-merited lesson while respecting her sovereign rights.
