18 July: Crackanthorpe has a copy of Bunsen’s report. He asks Gruić if it might be a good idea for Belgrade to launch an independent investigation into the alleged South Slav conspiracy on Serbian soil.
Gruić says they must wait for the findings of the Austro-Hungarian investigation in Sarajevo. The Serbian government will comply with “whatever request for further investigation the circumstances might call for and which would be compatible with international usage”.
Gruić also says should Austria-Hungary attack Serbia, Serbia would have the support of Russia, and this would lead to a European conflagration.
