Morning: Sazonov sees
Posted on July 28th, 1914 by admin
Morning: Sazonov sees Szápáry who still has no instructions from Vienna about the talks over the ultimatum that Sazonov wants to have. Szápáry repeats the pledge not to annex Serbian territory. Sazonov also asks to see the full dossier from the Austro-Hungarian government concerning Serbian complicity in the assassination.
Szápáry reports to Vienna that Sazonov clutches at straws and lays stress on Russia’s interest that Serbia should not be reduced to a state of vassalage.
