Agreement Between Britain Russia And France

In Uncategorized

In the second half of 1908, Alexander Izvolsky, The Russian Foreign Minister, received the support of the Austro-Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alois Lexa, Aehrenthal, the Italian Foreign Minister Tommaso Tittoni and the German Ambassador to Paris, Wilhelm von Schoen, as well as the Minister of Foreign Affairs Sir Edward Grey, for a regime change. which was clear on 14 October 1908, while stressing that a Turkish agreement was a precondition. [7] Germany`s first attempt to break the Franco-British alliance dates back to March 1905, when the Germans sent Emperor William II to Morocco to „support“ the sultan against the French government (history 2009). However, such a measure strengthened French control in the region, as at a conference in Algeciras (Spain), „France`s claims to the region“ (history 2009) were recognized. However, the situation was not resolved and the „conflict“ between the two European powers caused the first Moroccan crisis (1905) and the Second Moroccan Crisis (1911) (history 2009). On the Russian side, the main foreign minister was Alexander Iswolski. The British ambassador to Denmark (where Iswolsky had been sent earlier) said: „Isvolsky had maintained the fairly balanced balance between his French and German colleagues.“ [[Sir A. Johnstone to Sir Edward Grey: May 27 1906, Gooch, BD IV, p235]] Iswolsky was a liberal, had supported the founding of the Duma and had asked him to resign when it was dissolved [Iswolsky, Fatefull, p. 193, 194, 196], which would clearly make it a tastier trading partner for the British. It was all the more important that Iswolski opposed the Russian bureaucracies, it was Iswolski who had to overcome the attitudes of the military party. [Churchill, 1907, 147, 149]] In the words of Greys: Sir Edward Grey“ It is not surprising that the Russian Foreign Minister had difficulty getting the Russian military authorities to abandon something of real potential value, when we abandoned what we had little or no practical value. [Grey, Twenty-five, p160]] So Iswolski was the negotiator, who was brave and continued with little support. Iswolsky was still in the minority when, on 24 August, the final proposal was submitted to the Council of Ministers, which they rejected because Britain could not make any further concessions, so there was no question of turning their views, which he did until 18 August.

[Churchill, 1907, 174-175]] The Cordial Agreement of April 1904, which officially carries a declaration between the United Kingdom and France on respect between Egypt and Morocco, was more than anything a declaration of friendship between these two great European powers. On its terms, France promised not to question British control of Egypt; For its part, Britain has recognized French law as a power whose reigns are linked to a great distance from those of Morocco, to act in that country to maintain order and to help carry out all the reforms it deems necessary in the government, economy or army. After the unification of Germany, Bismarck diplomatically isolated France to avoid France`s revenge following the Franco-German war (1870-71). Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898) was Prime Minister of Prussia and first Chancellor of the Reich. For some 20 years, he was actively involved in maintaining a state of peace in Europe and „deftly pursued a peaceful foreign policy on foreign policy“ (Barkin no date). The German government, seeking this agreement, decided to test its borders by sending Emperor William II to Morocco in March 1905 to explain his support for the sultan, an obvious challenge for France`s influence in this country sanctioned by the Cordial Agreement.
