The following extract is taken from a history book.

The Russo-Japanese War had considerable impact on the European balance of power. The beginning of the war led to the weakening of Anglo-French relations, which jeopardized the newly established Anglo-French Entente, and British extreme anti-Russian sentiments. With the defeat of Russia and collapse of the Russian-German alliance, however, Britain gradually lessened its fear of Russia and started reaching agreement with it. In 1907, they eventually established an entente after making an agreement on their sphere of influence in Central Asia. This led to the establishment of the Triple Entente.

Germany regarded such diplomatic situation as ‘hostile encirclement’ of it … From 1905 through 1914, Germany tried different diplomatic methods to break the Triple Entente – by supporting Austria-Hungary, seeking alliance with the Turkish Empire and raising its international status. Germany’s efforts did not cause the breakup of the Triple Entente, but they created many peace-threatening crises between the two blocs. These crises occurred by turns in areas where imperialist competitions were the fiercest, especially in Moroccan and Near East.
