Morning: Grey asks Lichnowsky if Germany

Posted on July 29th, 1914 by admin

Morning: Grey asks Lichnowsky if Germany itself can make a mediation proposal as the British ambassadors’ conference proposal has been rejected and direct talks between Russia and Austria-Hungary seem unlikely.
Lichnowsky repeats the German view that Russia should not interfere in a fight between Austria-Hungary and Serbia. Austria-Hungary does not intend to annex Serbia. Grey points out it is possible to turn Serbia into a vassal state without annexation.
Grey also asks if it might be possible to bring about an understanding as to the extent of Austro-Hungarian military operations and political objectives so some reassurance can be given to Russia.
