Afternoon: Grey sees Lichnowsky. He says Britain does not want to intervene in a purely Austro-Serbian dispute.
He is only concerned if the Austrian ultimatum to Serbia leads to trouble between Austria and Russia.
He suggests if relations between Austria and Russia become threatening the four not directly involved powers – Germany, Italy, France and Britain – mediate between them. This is Britain’s first mediation proposal.
Grey again comments on the dangers of a war between the four nations, Russia, Austria-Hungary, Germany and France. [More]
