Hello, teachers.
I came across the following sentence:

Servia must be punished, naturally, but to that, in principle, every nation in Europe is agreed.

and I wonder why the latter half of the sentence should not be written "but to that, in principle, every nation in Europe agrees". I appreciate very much if you could explain the difference of these two expressions.
