Posted on July 23rd, 1914 by admin

St Petersburg: Paléologue draws up a communique “The two governments have discovered that their views and intentions for the maintenance of the European balance of power, especially in the Balkan Peninsula, are absolutely identical”.
Viviani changes this to “… the two friendly and allied governments … are in entire agreement in their views on the various problems which concern for peace and the balance of power in Europe has laid before the powers, especially in the Balkans”.
