Evening: Schoen calls on Berthelot to suggest

Posted on July 26th, 1914 by admin

Evening: Schoen calls on Berthelot to suggest making a joint press statement saying Germany and France are “acting in an identical spirit of peaceful co-operation” to find ways of preserving peace, and head off negative newspaper comments.
Berthelot says the suggested statement is misleading. The real situation is dangerous. He tells Schoen he thinks Vienna would not be acting the way it is without German approval and Germany is not trying to change Vienna’s stance.
Schoen says Austria-Hungary has only rejected formal mediation and a conference where it might be arraigned before what could be seen as a European tribunal. He adds Germany would not refuse to give advice to Vienna in all circumstances.
