Tensions across Europe amidst Serbian crisis
The Viennese newspaper Neue Freie Presse has published an article today observing that the assassination of Franz Ferdinand has aroused the conscience of Europe, not only of its peoples, but also of its governments.
The journal refers to the moral isolation of the Pan-Serbian movement, members of which were responible for the outrage, and points out that the whole German people stand by the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. It believes that Austria-Hungary’s ally, Italy, also shares the feeling of the German Empire and at last keep faith with her neighbour who spared her during the Balkan War.
England, the article continues, will most certainly use her great influence in order to bring Serbia to her senses and secure the European outlawing of Pan-Serbdom, stating that Great Britain is never found waiting when she hears the voice of justice.
