Austria's Declaration of War Telegram to Serbia July 28, 1914 - World War One begins.

From: Count Leopold Berchtold,
Austro-Hungarian Minister for Foreign Affairs.

To: M. N. Pashitch, Serbia's Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs

Vienna, July 15/28, 1914.


"THE Royal Serbian Government not having answered in a satisfactory manner the note of July 10/23, 1914, presented by the Austro-Hungarian Minister at Belgrade, the Imperial and Royal Government are themselves compelled to see to the safeguarding of their rights and interests, and, with this object, to have recourse to force of arms. Austria-Hungary consequently considers herself henceforward in state of war with Serbia."
