Transcript """^■^■■■■■1 ■■■■! »^«^rJSii,T^i5* 57 groise au Gouvernement serbe et les premieres demarches de la Russie cinq jours s'etaient ecoules, et cependant le Cabinet de Vienne n'avait fait aucun pas pour aller au-devant de nos efforts pacifiques; au contraire, la mobilisation de la moitie de Farmee austro-hongroise avait ete decretee. Le Gouvernement allemand fut mis au courant des mesures prises par la Russie ; il lui fut en meme temps explique qu'elles n'etaient que la consequence des armements au- trichiens et nullement dirigees contre FAllemagne. En meme temps, le Gouvernement Impe- riel declara que la Russie etait prete a continuer les pourparlers en vue d'une solution pacifique du conflit, soit par la voie de nego- ciations directes avec le Cabinet de Vienne, soit, en suivant la proposition de la Grande- Bretagne, par la voie d'une conference des quatre Grandes Puissances non interessees directe- ment, voire, FAngleterre, la France, FAllemagne et l'ltalie. Cependant cette tentative de la Russie echoua egalement. L'Autriche -Hongrie declina un echange de vues ulterieur avec nous, et le Cabinet de Vienne se deroba a la participation a la conference des Puissances pro- jetee. Neanmoins, la Russie ne dis- continua pas ses efforts en faveur de la paix.

Indeed, quite the contrary; for the mobilisation of half of the Austro- Hungarian army had been ordered. The German Government were kept informed of the steps taken by Russia. At the same time it was explained to them that these steps were only the result of the Austrian preparations, and that they were not in any way aimed at Germany. Simultaneously, the Russian Government declared that Russia was ready to continue discussions with a view to a peaceful settlement of the dispute, either in the form of direct negotiations with Vienna, or as suggested bv Great Britain, in the form of a conference of the four Great Powers not directly interested,, that is to say, Great Britain, France, Germany, and Italy. This attempt on the part of Russia was, however, equally unsuccessful. Austria-Hungary declined a further exchange of views with Russia, and the Vienna Cabinet was unwilling to join the proposed conference of the Powers. Nevertheless, Russia did not abandon her efforts for peace. When questioned by the German Ambassador as to the conditions on which we would still agree to suspend our preparations, the Minister for Foreign Affairs declared that these conditions were Austria's recognition that the Austro-Serbian question had assumed a European character, and a declaration
