Paris: Szécsen calls Bienvenu-Martin to explain

Posted on July 24th, 1914 by admin

Paris: Szécsen calls on Bienvenu-Martin to explain the note to Serbia. He says it is an act of self-defence. Though Bienvenu-Martin makes critical comments calling the note “virtually an ultimatum” containing demands that would probably be “unacceptable” he gives a sympathetic impression.
Szécsen reports to Vienna Bienvenu-Martin thinks “energetic action” by Austria-Hungary “can be understood” and “expresses the hope that the dispute will be peacefully settled in a manner agreeable to our wishes”.
Szécsen ends his report saying “On the conduct of foreign policy M. Martin has of course no influence.”
