21 July, morning: The Tsar and Poincaré meet again. They talk about the tension between Britain and Russia in Persia. They believe local interests are the cause and neither Britain nor Russia can be blamed.
The Tsar says he will not allow Persia to cause a division between Britain and Russia.
According to Poincaré, the Tsar is preoccupied by what Austria-Hungary might do regarding Serbia and says “…. that under the present circumstances, the complete alliance between our two governments appears to him more necessary than ever”.
