I hate the Communist Party chapter 144
The atmosphere of the conference hall, which was gradually warming up, was like the heat of a summer day without knowing the end.
However, it was surprisingly no big deal that prevented the runaway.
It was because of the problems that all human beings have that led to an in-depth discussion of the international situation from the morning and the dignified dialogue about how to operate the world in the future.
“I repeat, our German Empire has no compromise on this African issue… … !”
This was because even diplomats armed with the belief that they would protect the national interests and the self-esteem that they would not look ridiculous to other countries had to eat.
No matter how hard the body was wrapped in armor, the basic needs of a person were the same as those that had to be satisfied.
“It seems that Germany is not satisfied with just swallowing Africa, everyone. Seeing that the representative reveals that the German Empire is still hungry… … .”
The French representative who laughed at the German representative blushing with embarrassment was no exception.
He also sat down quietly with his mouth shut when he heard the sound from his ship echoing in the conference hall.
The first time I opened my mouth at a conference hall filled with a sense of silence with an unusual black comedy, it was not the representative of the country that had been talking with passion so far.
“Wouldn’t it be nice to take a break for our meal and talk about it again? You have to be strong enough to be able to move your tongue smoothly.”
“Hmm, I think it would be better. Let’s all get together again after eating.”
It was also possible because he was the representative German foreign minister of Russia who kept silent without saying anything.
If the representatives of the broken relationship had always argued with each other and said this as they were hurting their feelings, they might have reestablished their pride and acted against it, but now the Russian Empire is one step away from the African affairs, which is somewhat similar to neutrality Because it was.
At the originally prepared dinner hall, everyone would have eaten while sharing bad comments about the populists, but as the meeting turned into an African problem, the delegates did not eat in one place.
It was because each had to share opinions on the attitudes and strategies to be used at the meetings that would continue after meals, so the representatives who were worried about the exposure of the strategies wanted to eat in different places.
“Minister, the French representative wants to talk for a moment. What should I do?”
“The meal is about to end, so ask me to come in. I’m about to eat dessert from now on, but I asked if I would like to join you.”
“Yes, I understand.”
This did not mean that the food prepared at the dinner table disappeared, so it was none other than Gabriel, the representative of the current alliance, France, who visited the Foreign Minister Ger, who was able to enjoy the dinner prepared for the delegation of each country on his own.
“You should enjoy your meal comfortably, but I’m sorry for the rudeness.”
As a Frenchman who attaches a lot of meaning to the act of eating, his first word was an apology for his actions that made him talk about work at mealtime.
Considering that Gabriel himself had just ate lunch to have a conversation with Foreign Minister Ger, he knew he was taking this meeting seriously.
“No, Foreign Minister Gabriel. It was almost finished anyway. So may I ask you what you want to say?”
Foreign Minister Ger said, stabbing the chocolate cake served for dessert with a fork.
Then Gabriel opened her mouth in a sincere tone, showing a gesture of dissatisfaction with the cake she was about to put in front of her.
“The relationship between our France and your country wasn’t good from the start, wasn’t it?”
“It can be seen that it is. It’s been less than 100 years since Grande Armé, the Grand Army, proud of your country, crossed the borders of Russia.”
“Since then, France and Russia misunderstood each other because of Bismarck, who was the wicked German prime minister, thinking that the other is the enemy. Until the current German emperor, the one-armed emperor who is rumored to enjoy being fit for women, was crowned.”
It comes out hard.
Foreign Minister Ger thought.
No matter how informal meetings are, there are only two of them, but speaking of this level of language at the meeting place where the German Empire also participated, if the related conversation leaks out, the Ms Telegram incident1 will surely result in a post-storm that will go away. Because I did.
So, the choice of Foreign Minister Ger was the silence of these provocative words. It was dangerous to answer quickly.
Foreign Minister Gabriel also moved on to the next statement without much haste, as if he knew it would be when he only smiled and did not answer.
“Fortunately, we succeeded in signing a joint defense treaty for Germany, thanks to the continued provision of a French loan since the last days and the return of La Marseilles in the capital, but I hope for a further relationship here. There is.”
“A relationship that is more advanced than now?”
“Yes that’s right. A relationship that will benefit both France and Russia, and Russia and France.”
“Is it possible to ask if this is the opinion of the foreign minister or the opinion of France as a whole?”
When asked that Ger was questionable, Gabriel replied with a smile as if it were natural.
“Of course, this is not what all the people of France want, not just me. No one would feel reluctant to get closer to the powerful state of the Russian Empire.”
Foreign Minister Ger laughed inside.
It was because I could guess why France came out with this attitude.
‘In the first place, I would have tried to take the strategy of bringing in Britain as well and besieging Germany on three sides. I would have to give up that strategy as London, England turned over. So, the need for our Russia to pressure the eastern region, which is the base of the German Junkers, would have grown even more.’
What could be received from France was that Russia, who had already taken care of it, could not believe that a closer relationship would work better than it is now.
France is certainly a powerful country, and unlike the German Empire, which faces its borders directly, it is a far-off country, but it was only a few decades ago that Napoleon led his troops to invade Russia, just as Ger said.
There was no guarantee that France would maintain its current attitude even after a good deal of Germany.
“That’s a very interesting and grateful story. I want the people of France to get closer to our Russia.”
However, Foreign Minister Ger replied with an expression of emotion that this thought was not visible on the outside.
“But, unfortunately, I cannot give you any answer here, as the only mandate I have been delegated to the Tsar is to discuss topics related to the populists at this meeting. However, what Minister Gabriel said I will convey to the Tsar with all my heart.”
Foreign Minister Ger’s reply that he would not be able to give a definite answer right now followed, but Gabriel was not likely to be disappointed.
It was also because I didn’t think I would hear a definite answer right here.
“of course. The tsar will have to decide on this. Can I just ask you for one thing as an alliance? We hope you support us on this African issue. If the German Empire is making progress in Africa, you don’t know what to do with that confidence. As an alliance, can you do this?”
“I am also deeply grateful for the assistance France has provided to our Russian Empire, including the vice-minister, and of course I would, but it takes me that there is one problem.”
“Considering that this African issue was an extension of the talks held in Berlin in 1884, wouldn’t we, the Russian Empire, who did not attend the talks at the time, can’t we? Of course, I don’t doubt that what Minister Gabriel is saying is more legitimate than other countries’ claims, but it could be said that Russia, not the party, is entitled to speak about it.”
“That’s of course… … !”
It was Ger’s resolute remarks that blocked Minister Gabriel’s cry to continue speaking with the attitude of when Russia had followed these international norms.
“only! It may not be a castle for the French to feel, but our Russian Empire will maintain its neutrality in a position tilted by the French side. At the same time, I will tell you what you have said to the Tsar, and I will also tell you about African issues, until the order comes from St. Petersburg. Please wait a week.”
“… … .”
As Gabriel felt that there would be nothing more to rush him here, he was forced to reconsider the words of Foreign Minister Ger.
Anyway, such talks were not decided in a short period of time, but were often continued for more than a year.
“A week would be enough, right?”
“Of course, I think in a week we will be able to achieve the results Minister Gabriel wanted. Please be a little patient.”
“Okay, then let’s go. Please enjoy the rest of the dessert.”
“Don’t you eat Minister Gabriel? I heard that the chocolate cake in Vienna is very good.”
When he heard Ger’s invitation to go with some dessert, Gabriel replied with a scoff.
“It won’t be much compared to our French proud dessert. If the Foreign Minister visits France, I will take responsibility and let you experience the food culture of France that is better than here.
“I am looking forward to it with joy.”
When Gabriel left the room like this, Ger held the fork in his hand again, saying that he could finally eat the chocolate cake he had put off for a conversation.
Had he not heard the words of the attendant, he would have enjoyed the flavor of the cake spreading out of his mouth.
“Minister, this is a visit from the British representative. Shall I ask you to wait a bit?”
The old man, whose career rolled in diplomacy for decades, sighed.
At best, I wanted to get out of the tsar’s grip and enjoy a little bit of relaxation, but the world seemed to not allow him to rest.
Originally, instead of sending him directly, the Tsar had appointed a plenipotentiary ambassador to send him to the conference hall, but the reason Ger came here was because he strongly insisted that he would go.
While a delicious-looking chocolate cake was waiting for his hand, Foreign Minister Ger put down the fork he was holding in his hand.
It seemed like there would be a lot of work left to enjoy today’s dessert.
Ems Telegram Incident¹: This is one of the causes of the Prussian-French war. Bismarck deliberately distorted the conversation between the French ambassador and King Wilhelm I, then King of Prussia, and reported it in the newspaper.
