21 July, afternoon: Poincaré also speaks to Szápáry at the reception and expresses his sympathy concerning the assassinations in Sarajevo.
While talking about the Austro-Hungarian judicial inquiry he implies the results will be suspect by mentioning two earlier Austro-Hungarian inquiries that produced false evidence.
He points out to Szápáry that if demands are made on Serbia that Serbia has a friend in the Russian people, and Russia has an ally, France.
Szápáry is deeply offended by these remarks made in public and in his report to Vienna refers to the “tactless, almost threatening demeanour” of the French president. [More]
