18 July: Szápáry calls on Sazonov. Following Berchtold’s instructions not to say anything that might reveal what was being planned in Vienna Szápáry says his government is interested only in putting an end to terrorism and is convinced the Serbian government will prove itself to be accommodating with respect to demands from Vienna.
In light of Szápáry’s peaceful assurances and reasonable attitude Sazonov gives him no warnings about how Russia might react.
