Morning: Sazonov is worried and in a bad mood because Vienna has not replied to his proposal for direct talks. Buchanan calls on him and asks if Russia will accept Vienna’s assurances on Serbian independence and integrity.
Sazonov says “No engagement that Austria might take on these two points would satisfy Russia”. He tells Buchanan that Russia will mobilise when Austro-Hungarian troops cross the Serbian border.
