Morning: Belgian government replies
Posted on August 1st, 1914 by admin
Morning: Belgian government replies to inquiry from Grey made the day before that Belgium “will to the utmost of her power maintain neutrality …. that the relations between Belgium and the neighbouring Powers were excellent …. no reason to suspect their intentions, but that Belgian Government believed that in case of violation they were in a position to defend the neutrality of their country”.
Shortly after news follows that Belgium has decided to mobilise.
