Afternoon: Cambon calls on Grey. He reminds Grey

Posted on July 30th, 1914 by admin

Afternoon: Cambon calls on Grey. He reminds Grey of their exchange of letters in 1912 which formalised the agreement that Britain and France would immediately discuss whether they should act together if either country or the general peace was threatened.
He draws Grey’s attention to the French decision to pull its covering forces 10km back from the frontier with Germany. It is France that is threatened and war could break out at any moment. It is urgent to agree joint action. Grey says he will get a response from the cabinet the next day.
