Subject: RE: Offer of peace from the Tsar

The Eugenian Republic with the passage of the peace offer by the Congress will now begin to retreat its armies back to a rough estimated line for peace. Our group of our soldiers will remain in San Lucia to shake hands with your commander taking the city and hand over control formally.

In the meantime, it is important that a line be drawn for the border. We believe this border presents a very equitable halfway point.

Subject: Sea rescue of castaways. @Tarusa

The Republic of Remion is delighted to hear that some of its citizens have been saved following a shipwreck. We hope to see them again as soon as possible in the company of family members.

Could Imperial Foreign Ministry inform us which ship the sailors were on duty? We have already launched an internal investigation through the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, where the naval registers and individual crews and their ships are reported. Empire of Tarusa can speed up this practice by communicating the name of the vessel on which they were embarked.

The ship was the Oyleric, believed to be a cargo ship from the information we have been given by the commander of the Vechny. The crew is currently undergoing evaluation by medical staff and questioning regarding the incident and verification of identities to ensure they are nationals of the countries they claim to be.

The Kingdom of Eiffelland would like to thank the navy of Tarusa for saving the crew members of the Oyleric in the Meridian Sea. We hope that the Eiffellandian crew members will be able to travel to Eiffelland soon. We would also like to receive information on their well-being, as well as a possibility for Eiffellandian diplomats to visit them.

Protests have erupted within your country. These protests are spurred on by the motives of those that have abandoned you in the past, refused to accept you as part of their nation, but most of all abandoned you when the threat to themselves became to great. They attempt and play games, to use you as yet another pawn in their game against the empire for portraying an image of what they want. You see they supported you, then they abandoned you, and now they support you again in name but wish to change how your nation, how you the congress govern because you do not fit what they desire and need at this time.

You see, you are only beneficial to them when it suits their agenda. The "democratic" nations of this world only support you for as long as you will give them what they need. They have shown it time and time again, that the laws, the customs of diplomacy, only matter when it suits their agenda. It is no different now with you, the political elite of Eugenia. You were their pride, you were the "Light of Democracy" until they have begun to decide that you are not and so now they seek to remove you from power, and will say it is for your safety, your safety from the imperial forces.

Have we made any moves to breach our ceasefire with you? Have we not allowed the zarans whom wish to cross over into Eugenia the right to do so? Have we not allowed business to continue across the boundaries? We have, we have honored our agreement as it stands for the time being. The Tsar is a man of his word, and his word is that we would rather deal with the congress as it is now, then have it be deposed by the so called "democratic states". We could have kept the offensive when it was clear the Republic was retreating, but we chose to end the conflict, as what we had came to Pannonia to accomplish was accomplished. We do not have ulterior motives for Eugenia, nor the zaran people.

So what does the Empire have to offer? Quell the rebellious movement before it gets out of hand. Take charge of your nation before it gets out of hand as yet again the democracies of this world seek to sow troubles in other nations. If assistance is needed to bring these protests under control, we will assist, and we will also honor Eugenian independence once these protests end. You should be able to believe that we honor our word, as we never moved once past Sankt Viet during the conflict, showing we never once wanted complete capitulation of Eugenia. What we desire is nothing more than to see the current congress remain in power, as it is your entity as the governing body with which we did come to an agreement for a ceasefire.

Eugenia thanks you for your offer and suggestions. They will not be necessary as the Army has taken the situation under their control. The Socialist Republic will handle the future in accordance with their own discretion moving forward. Communication with the Empire of Tarusa as well as the Second Republic will be maintained moving forward to prevent any misunderstandings. It is the expectation from the Army that the ceasefire borders will be observed.

DIPLOMATIC COMMUNIQUÉ

au nom du Gouvernement de Sa Majesté


The Oyleric Incident and Irrefutable Link to the Empire of Tarusa

Published By

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
Le secrétaire d'État aux Affaires étrangères

Kingdom of Guienny / Royaume de Guienny

The Rt Hon Amélia Dubois MP
TO MY ESTEEMED COUNTERPART HIS EXCELLENCY THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER FOR THE EMPIRE OF TARUSA,
MY MOST HONOURABLE MISTER LUKA VOLKOV,

Over the course of the past several months, there has been a new paradigm for the deployment of the Empire of Tarusa's assets in the Meridian Sea. In complete understanding of the foreign responsibilities towards the Empire's campaign in the central Germanian region that is now the former Pannonia, His Majesty's Government has been all too kind to allow for the Empire to conduct larger campaigns unchallenged on the high seas as a responsible actor on the international stage.

His Majesty's Government wishes to continue this policy of greater trust with the Empire, however; a more pointed problem of a greater nature that seeks to abuse this trust has developed in recent weeks.

The Kingdom of Guyenny had originally witnessed the sinking of the cargo ship Oyleric which posited Tarusa's Grand Imperial Navy as heroes of the high seas. The terms of which the Oyleric sank, largely mysterious, escaped the headlines and news cycles and positioned the Guiennese people as supporters for the activities of your naval expedition into new frontiers. The most recent accusations supplied with ample evidence from the Second Republic of Remion positions the original feelings held as a mere façade to the truth. The Oyleric would appear to have been hit by torpedo, and sank after a sudden, but also deliberate attack by the Tarusan authorities. Acknowledging that the Tarusans do not operate as unintellectual peasants of the seas and rather as a standard and formidable naval force, such action could only have been granted with the direction of the highest echelons Tarusan leadership, be that in government or within the military service.

This brazen action and sudden display of juvenile decision making casts doubt upon this Government's opinion of the Tarusan Navy's goals and aspirations in the Meridian Sea.

Furthermore, His Majesty's Government considers that this action was committed without regard for life and liberty of the many sailors aboard Oyleric. It would be somewhat reasonable to make the assumption that a freighter that fly the flag of the Second Republic of Remion be targeted for political and perhaps military reasons in the undeclared war that was waged in the former Pannonia between Tarusa and Remion. This engagement committed cannot within good reason be assumed that any regard for the sailors of this freighter be taken beyond the henceforth noted immediate rescue of them. His Majesty's Government cannot as of present confirm or deny whether or not all hands were rescued.

The irresponsibility committed in this action has not considered the nationality of the sailors involved in our analysis and must demand of the Empire of Tarusa to what knowledge the Empire had as to the risk of harm to Guiennese sailors existed. Is there any documentation available which shows that the Empire could know without question that the actions would not have harmed a citizen of Guyenny? To the best of His Majesty's Government intel, there is no way in which this could be confirmed.

It is only by sheer happenstance that no Guiennese sailor was aboard this freighter.

Thus, His Majesty's Government must lodge formal complaint to the Empire of Tarusa for their actions in the Meridian Sea. The Government of Prime Minister Gordon Howe demands formal explanation for the events that surround the sinking of the freight ship Oyleric and of what benefit, material, economic, or intelligence, would this attack have done for the Empire of Tarusa in its campaign in Pannonia.

Failure to comply with such demands will result in this Government's positioning against continued free and unhindered Tarusan campaigns in the Meridian Sea.

Most Honourable Mister Luka Volkov, in acknowledge of the continued high esteem that His Majesty's Government still holds for the Tsar and his Empire of Tarusa, the spirit and sacrifices of the Tarusan people and citizenry, as well as the influence and honour of your Government, please kindly accept this correspondence as one of diplomatic importance and continued cordial understanding. I personally still remain committed as your most humble and obedient servant in faithful dialogue between His Imperial Highness Tsar Yuri VI and his Government and His Majesty King Henry XIV's Government, headed by Prime Minister the Rt Hon Gordon Howe MP,

Pelasgian Empire
Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Official Communiqué

Nymphaion | 17/09/2021 | TOP SECRET
The Pelasgian Empire notes that recent tensions in the Meridian Sea region involving your nation have reached a climactic point, such that the threat of war in the area involving your forces appears very real. As the foremost naval and land power of the region and as the owner of the Propontine Straits which connect the Meridian and Basilisk Seas, the Pelasgian Empire has an evident stake in this matter.

Pelasgia is both able and willing to lend you significant aid in this matter. Our naval forces are second to none in the area, and, indeed, in Europe, and our command of the straits would enable us to cut your foe off and to aid your own movements without needing to fire a single shot. Moreover, we could provide invaluable diplomatic, intelligence, and logistical support, given our presence and clout in the region. This could even extend to allowing your forces to make use of our ports and dry docks for naval stationing, repair, and resupply.

In exchange, His Imperial Majesty's Government requests that, if Pelasgia were to assert its sovereign rights over the territory of our country currently occupied by the EF Mandate of the Isphilistines, your government publicly support our attempts to reassert our legitimate control over what was once--and still remains--rightfully and ethnically ours. At the very least, we would ask that you do nothing to oppose our efforts and make no statements, even of a symbolic nature, condemning our initiative.

We hope that you consider our offer well, given that it could form the basis for a more solid and long-lasting friendship between our two great nations.

We can for the time assure the Pelasgian Empire that the Tarusan Empire will not vocally oppose or oppose in any matter the issue of Isphilistines. While the Imperial government has at times found itself displeased with certain actions from the Pelasgian government, the matter of the mandate is one which we care not what happens with it as we have no interest in the matter.

Public statement

The Accusations against the Empire are false, no matter what the Republic of Remion would like the world to believe. If the Imperial government wished to continue waging the undeclared war started by the Remionese we would be doing far more damage to the economic interests than that of a single freighter. The Remion government points to data it has from the unfortunate incidents where the Imperial Navy sank multiple Republican vessels while it may be capable of comparing data from this event with the data it has recovered from the Oyleric it leaves multiple possibilities as to the truth behind the mystery.

Could the Imperial Navy have sank the Oyleric? Very easily, we have shown our prowess at sea before with the ease at which we swept away the Republican Navy wiping away their amphibious capabilities for many years to come. Is this an admission of guilt? No, the Imperial government had nothing to do with the sinking of the Oyleric beyond the events as has been stated before with assistance rendered by the battlecruiser Vechny in saving the crew. What gain would there potentially be for the empire in a meaningless freighter? The diplomatic moves of the Tsar are always in the best interest for the Empire, as can be seen by all of our diplomatic initiatives, including the returning of the fallen sailors of the Republican Navy back to their home country for proper burial rights despite the continued holding of 196 prisoners of war by the Republic. The Empire holds the value of all life, even after death, in a high regard.

Would it not be in the interests of the Republic of Remion to falsify and tamper its own data with the hope of damaging the international image of the Empire? It is after all computational information, easily enough to be tampered with by the very same professionals whom have "analyzed" this data. Think of the reasons they could potentially have for this and they are numerous. They say the systems aboard the ship were already tampered with before the loss of the freighter, if they were, perhaps it is luck that a sophisticated warship in the region was still capable of receiving the distress call and rendering assistance before any loss of life could happen, luck can be a funny thing at times. The Republic used more resources for the recovery of this freighter, than it did in the recovery of its sailors, that sounds like it itself could be a potential motive for framing our nation, as it is no secret the Republican government loves to play the victim and paint Tarusa as the evil aggressor.

They claim information related to Tarusan torpedoes, how many nations have sank Republican warships in the last several decades? Just us? Thats what I thought, as such the amount of information they have for comparison to the multitude of other nations whom could have sank this warship via a torpedo, if that is truthfully what sank the freighter, is completely lacking. Its easy to point a finger to claim someone did something if you have no data for comparison beyond the individual you are blaming.

These are just a couple of the countless possibilities with which could be the truth behind the sinking of the Oyleric. We have our own suspicions and have outlined potential theories that have been floated at the top levels of our own government. I can however say without a doubt that Imperial Naval ships did not interfere with commercial activity, let alone sink a commercial vessel in peace time.

At the moment of the drawdown of the Tarusan presence in Thrakia, we would like to extend our thanks to the Tarusan troops that, during the last two decades, have contributed to the stabilization of Thrakia alongside Serbovian servicemen. The legacy of the Empire of Tarusa in Thrakia truly represents the highest values of the Pressburg Pact, and signals to the world our commitment to the cause of peace. Tarusa remains the most vital Serbovian partner in our task of guaranteeing regional stability and peace.

Regards,
Mr. Aleksandar Plesic,
Prime Minister


Office of the Prime Minister
Federal State of Serbovia
Confidential to Tarusa


Subsequent to the recent developments in Eugenia and the coup by an unrecognized Socialist military clique, I would like to enter Pressburg Pact consultations with the Empire of Tarusa in regards to the possibility of joint action in containing the instability generated by this new situation in Eugenia. Though the Remionese forces were thankfully expelled from those territories, the shape and form of this new regime remains to be seen and will undoubtedly be a source of regional instability.

Our concerns with this issue are twofold. First, there remains the threat that foreign forces hostile to the Pressburg Pact might use Eugenian territories to generate instability in former Pannonia or even posing direct threat against Serbovian territories. Second, there is the issue of the border areas where currently ethnic Serboves are residing. If the risk generated by Eugenia can be contained and there would be the possibility of transferring these Serbovic areas to Serbovian control, then Eugenia will become irrelevant to us.

While direct military intervention has been considered to safeguard the rights of ethnic Serboves as promised by this administration, we view that the current crisis relating to Thrakia and the European Forum will take priority in this matter. Indeed, engaging in a direct intervention in this situation might even be unfavorable to the Pressburg Pact in realizing its goals in the EF. Therefore, my proposal is that we will jointly start to exercise appropriate diplomatic and political pressure against Eugenia and its benefactors, along with intelligence operations to prop up anti-Socialist forces in the region.

I will move on to the topic of Remion. With their recent diplomatic initiatives against us in the EF, we can now conclude that Tibur is the primary current threat to Serbovian national security, and all efforts of this government will go into containing these Remionese attempts at weakening the security position of the Serbovian state.

It is my view that the Remionese attempt to have Serbovia dislodged from its role in Thrakia is a direct precursor to a Remionese attempt to gain influence there, in order to pose a threat to Serbovia's southern borders. This, along with the status of the ethnic Serbovic community in Thrakia which originally was the impetus for our intervention, makes Thrakia a strategic priority for us. Therefore, every effort must be exhausted to counteract the Remionese initiatives against our presence in Thrakia.

In addition, under the strictest confidence I will notify you that our intelligence services have started to prepare a back-up plan should there be a serious initiative by the EF to remove Serbovian presence from Thrakian soil. In the event that the Remionese motion would be accepted, pro-Serbovian elements in the local authorities and the Serbovian-trained paramilitary forces would declare independence and immediately request Serbovian military assistance to stabilize a new sovereign Thrakian state. This state would, naturally, align itself with the Pressburg Pact. A secondary plan, to be initiated in the failure of the primary plan, would involve a secession of the ethnic Serbovic regions in North Thrakia which would then attempt to merge with the Federal State of Serbovia.

While we hope for the preservation of status quo and the ability to execute our long-term goals for the region without excess international attention, we are prepared for any eventuality.

Regards,
Mr. Aleksandar Plesic,
Prime Minister

Subject: Placing of Zaran Armed Forces on High Alert

Alongside our public statement regarding the actions of placing the Zaran Armed Forces on high alert, we wish to send a private diplomatic communique directly to the Tsardom of @Tarusa to repeat our intentions and reasoning: Zaran actions are in direct response to the sudden invasion of the Bourdignie Confederation by the Holy Frankish Empire, and the subsequent mobilization of the armed forces of our southern neighbors of Remion and Ebria, as well as news that the Tarusan Imperial Armed Forces have been placed on a war footing.

You will note that we have not fully mobilized, similarly to our neighbors. This is a deliberate decision meant to reassure the Tsar as well as the Kingdom of Csgenia that the Socialist Republic of Zara is not part of any international attempt to wage offensive war against the Kingdom of Csgenia or any other allies of Tarusa or directly against Tarusa. While we cannot speak for our southern neighbors, we are certain their mobilization is in direct response to the aggression of the Holy Frankish Empire, rather than any grand design to wage war in Csgenia.

We shall not cross the ceasefire borders as established, we have no intention to. We hope you understand our reasoning behind our recent actions and are happy to provide further explanation and reassurance if needed.

Alongside our public statement regarding the actions of placing the Zaran Armed Forces on high alert, we wish to send a private diplomatic communique directly to the Tsardom of @Tarusa to repeat our intentions and reasoning: Zaran actions are in direct response to the sudden invasion of the Bourdignie Confederation by the Holy Frankish Empire, and the subsequent mobilization of the armed forces of our southern neighbors of Remion and Ebria, as well as news that the Tarusan Imperial Armed Forces have been placed on a war footing.

You will note that we have not fully mobilized, similarly to our neighbors. This is a deliberate decision meant to reassure the Tsar as well as the Kingdom of Csgenia that the Socialist Republic of Zara is not part of any international attempt to wage offensive war against the Kingdom of Csgenia or any other allies of Tarusa or directly against Tarusa. While we cannot speak for our southern neighbors, we are certain their mobilization is in direct response to the aggression of the Holy Frankish Empire, rather than any grand design to wage war in Csgenia.

We shall not cross the ceasefire borders as established, we have no intention to. We hope you understand our reasoning behind our recent actions and are happy to provide further explanation and reassurance if needed.

If it is indeed the truth of the matter that the Zaran forces have no intentions of any form of offensive actions then we offer two choices before your nation General.

Precedent has been set in the recent past when Zaran forces were not going to take the offensive, and what happened? The Republican army advanced and pushed on the offensive and drove towards sankt viet against the Csengian lines dragging the Zaran army with them. Hardly reassuring. Then if it is true that all of this was in response the the Frankish Empire invading Bourdignie, then why was it in fact the Republic which moved itself closer to a war footing first, well before the Frankish forces crossed over the Bourdignie border into frankish zones inside that breakaway state? Looks more like the Republic is looking for yet another pre-emptive strike. It is no lie, everyone can see the revanchist policy of the Republic.

If it is indeed true there are no hostile intentions from your forces than the two options are. Stand down you forces and keep them confined to their bases, or deploy half of your manpower and equipment in a posturing showing a will and desire to repel any attempts by the Republic to use the Zaran region as its next battleground against the Empire.

Subject: RE: Placing of Zaran Armed Forces on High Alert

The Remi Republic's prior decision of moving its military readiness level closer to war was made with no consultation of the Socialist Republic of Zara, hence why we did not follow suit and why we cannot answer your inquiry more precisely. We can assure the Tsardom of Tarusa, however, that there is no military coordination with the Republic of Remion because there are no plans we are aware of for an offensive into Csgenian territory beyond the ceasefire line. The visible refusal to fully mobilize similarly to our southern neighbors should present further proof of this.

Nonetheless, we have seriously considered your options of proving our goodwill, and have come to a decision. While we shall not order our forces to stand down due to the clear and present danger that has manifested between the Holy Frankish Empire and the Bourdignie Confederation, we shall nonetheless deploy our active duty forces so they are evenly distributed throughout Zara, half in the northern half of our nation and the other half in the southern half per the Tsar's demand, simultaneously declaring that the Socialist Republic of Zara is prepared to resist any and all incursions regardless of their origin during this time of crisis and conflict, and our goal to remain strictly neutral and uninvolved in this current conflict.

We trust that this will satisfy the Tsar's desire for clear evidence of our intentions: to keep Zara at peace in a time of crisis and its territory and people safe from war, and can prompt reassurances from the Tsar that he no longer bears ill will or intentions towards our nation as this crisis unfolds beyond our borders.

We are glad to see the General has made a wise decision in positioning his forces to show that he is willing to resist any efforts that may come from the Republic to use the zaran regions to fight its battles against the Empire and its allies once more. While we will not lower our readiness level, you will not see movements of hostility towards the demarcation zone between the Kingdom and the occupied zaran regions. This is not a sign of letting our guard down, but is one of showing some faith in your word general, as the Tsar is a man of his word.

Subject: Secret Negotiations Regarding the Fate of Zara

(Ministero degli Affari Esteri dello Stato @Remion has been cc'd in this diplomatic communique)

It has recently come to the attention of the Repubblica Socialista de Zara that backroom negotiations between the Tsardom of @Tarusa and a member of the Fonda Pact regarding the fate of the Zaran nation have been on-going for some time, which per our own newspaper that leaked the story and confirmed initial reports prominently featured "the further division of Eugenia between parties" among other lingering issues including the recognition of this very government. Given the recent developments in our southern neighbors of Remion that have brought about what we hope to be a change of perspective, combined with the flaring tensions in our neighboring successor state of the Bourdignie Confederation that have kept this region on the brink of war, General Leone and the Transitional Junta have decided to address the issue directly.

We shall pragmatically leave aside the grave breach of honor and dignity that has occurred before Zara, regardless of the dubious recognition we hold as a legitimate government to certain parties. We shall, furthermore, leave aside the devastating breach of trust in certain parties that have otherwise assured us of no hostility or ill will. We instead shall ground ourselves in cold, logical pragmatism, and recognize that our existence is a lightning rod of conflict, a magnet to uncertainty, death, and destruction, and General Leone no longer wishes that to be the case for the Zaran people who for months have fought so hard to live in peace with their neighbors on their own terms. He has come to understand that independence is not the way to achieving that peace, but also that reintegration in the Csgenian state we have fought so hard and for so long is only creating another ticking time-bomb that will explode and cause further chaos and conflict, another unacceptable answer to this Zaran Question.

There is, then, only one solution that we feel is the best option for all parties involved. We propose that the Repubblica Socialista de Zara dissolve itself in order to achieve that which it has yearned for since the start of this horrible crisis: unification with Remion. This will be done minus the three prominent Serbovian enclaves along the eastern borders of Zara which, to further prevent any future conflict between our peoples that have already suffered far too much for too long, will be ceded to the Federal State of @Serbovia, provided of course that any Zaran citizens residing in these enclaves are free to leave and join their Zaran bretheren, and vice-versa for Serboves outside of the three designated enclaves. Finally, General Leone along with any Zarans who feel their political identities leave them unwelcome in their land, shall go into voluntary exile into a place of their choosing, no matter where it may be, and renounce the formation of a Socialist Republican government in exile.

We are aware there are other issues related to these discussions including the Tarusan prisoners currently being held by the Stato Remion, but we advise that these issues be postponed for further discussion between these two governments, and instead focus on resolving this geopolitical question that has plagued our peoples for nine long months, and should plague us and the world no longer. Perhaps with the amicable resolving of this question, further issues can be answered.

We await your responses, and hope that they are agreeable to this proposal we in Zara make with heavy hearts, but with our minds remembering our goals since the twilight of 2020: living side-by-side in peace with our neighbors.

We would like to reassure the Empire of Tarusa & its people that while the pitch forks seem out for your ambassadors & reputation, that the Continental Imperio de Justosia still looks at your nation as a pillar of stability in northeast Europe.

My Sovereign prays for peace for all Europe. She sends her sincere regards. The radical left nations of the west simply cannot be trusted. We too are monitoring the greater situation & pray for your safety.

Warmest regards,

DIPLOMATIC COMMUNIQUÉ

The Remion coup d’état and Meridian Powers: An East-West Concordat
Published By

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
Le secrétaire d'État aux Affaires étrangères

Kingdom of Guienny / Royaume de Guienny

The Rt Hon Amélia Dubois MP

MOST SECRET
TRÉS SECRET

TO MY ESTEEMED COUNTERPART HIS EXCELLENCY THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER FOR THE EMPIRE OF TARUSA,
MY MOST HONOURABLE MISTER LUKA VOLKOV,

Recent events in the Remion have occurred which produce a certain instability of the power structure of Gallo-Germania. Understanding the utmost desires of His Majesty’s Government which has routinely without question always sought the supreme balance of powers on this continent, the rapid developments of this region in regards to the coup d’état leaves our governments, perhaps the pinnacle of European civilization regardless to separate styles of governance, left with a single recourse: to unite in a single firm hand against the powers of incivility.

Presented with a unique opportunity, the European zeitgeist demands the cooperation of our nations and peoples in removing the supreme complication of the Meridian Sea, the Remion State Navy. His Majesty’s Government offers the Tsar a proposal: To jointly eliminate the Naval Forces of Remion in a single campaign.

Doing so this presents our nation’s the ability to unite in common cause in the Meridian Sea and thereby promote joint policing of this region with the input of the Pelasgian sea peoples. This Concordat of East-West as His Majesty’s Government terms it, would seek to continue to balance power in the Meridian Sea. Furthermore, as part of these terms the Kingdom of Guyenny will recognise whichever solution the Tsar decides for the Eugenian-Zaran region. The coup d’état in Remion has placed our faith in the Tsar to determine the stability of this region, and recommends that any future for Eugenia not rest in the truculent hands of the military regime of Remion. His Majesty’s Government trusts that the Tsar would not make deals with gangsters and thugs.

As part of this East-West Concordat, our request as partners is the continued territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Eiffelland. The Republic of Ostmark is inconsequential to our foreign policy, yet has been considered of great importance to the Kingdom of Eiffelland. We wholeheartedly encourage dialogue to resolve conflicts vis-á-vis Tarusa and the Gothic Sea region; however, should the Holy Frankish Empire split Eiffellander spoils in former-Pannonia, this reflects on our belief that Eiffelland should not be deprived of its sphere in Ostmark. Such is only civilised and the right of Eiffelland as a fellow monarchy.

That said, His Majesty’s Government will not protest regime change in Ostmark via more clandestine methods if this should prove necessary to prevent conflict.

The East-West Concordat would still be expressed through the destruction of the Remion State Navy and the loss of this military dictatorship to be able express itself on the high seas. All the same, we encourage isolation of Remion itself and will not conduct any ground based offensive unless the Tsar would so wish to also pursue the return of a crowned state in Remion. Such discussion may prove worthwhile in time.

Lastly, it is the wish of His Majesty’s Government to have the Empire of Tarusa recognise that the Kingdom of Guienny’s defence of the Port of Tien, and the continued recognition of the Second Republic of Remion is legitimate. In return, this Government will campaign for the release and return of Tarusan prisoners in earnest.

It should go without saying that first we wish to acknowledge if this East-West Concord proves fruitful to the Tsar and if operations against the Remion State Navy should proceed.

Naturally, this is not to be dictated to the Tsar. His Majesty’s Government encourages discussion to the terms, although the surprise attack of the Remion Navy is of certain expediency.

Most Honourable Mister Luka Volkov, in acknowledgement of the continued high esteem that His Majesty's Government holds for the Tsar and his Empire of Tarusa, the spirit and sacrifices of the Tarusan people and citizenry, as well as the influence and honour of your Government, please kindly accept this correspondence as one of the highest diplomatic importance and immediacy. I shall personally still remain committed as your most humble and obedient servant in faithful dialogue between His Imperial Highness Tsar Yuri VI and his Government and His Majesty King Henry XIV's Government, headed by Prime Minister the Rt Hon Gordon Howe MP,

Très cordialement,

We have taken the time to thoroughly examine your offer for the end of Eugenia as it has been called internationally. We are willing to accept your offer and offer amnesty for yourself and those who wish to follow you by seeing that the borders will be opened and any reasonable requests are forwarded and authorized. We look forward to the announcement of the dissolution of the Socialist Republic and the inclusion of the serbovian enclaves into the Federal State that will follow with the announcement.

The events of recent have been quite traumatic to the balance of power on the continent we will agree with that assessment by your office. The reasons for the imbalance we could discuss for days or weeks, as our governments and ourselves probably have our own conclusions as to the reasonings behind it. You come to a very bold point and quickly, the joint effort at the elimination of the rebellious fleet that is no longer loyal to the second republic. Admirable to be direct and straight forward, I will not be able to be so lucky as it is a complex situation that if not handled properly will result in the cost being paid in the blood of Serbovian, Csengian, and Tarusans.

The relations between the Second Republic of Remion and the Empire have been strained for some time, this makes the first complication. We cannot say that we are not delighted to see that they have finally reaped the rewards of what they have sown with their misadventures into Pannonia. The continued snubs by the elected government of the Second Republic to keep hostilities high and their refusal to return rightful combatants back to imperial hands has been amongst one of the greatest insults to the Tsar, especially after he made overtures returning the dead from the sunken republican fleet. It is now such that we do not know the fate of these men, we do not know if they have been evacuated with other government loyalists, or if they have been left behind in the prison cells they have been thrown into and a far worse fate may potentially await them, which leads to another complication. If they are in the hands of the military rebellion, a strike upon the fleet may only further endanger their lives more than they already are, and as such we must weigh this option or devise a plan for their rescue during such an operation.

The affairs between the Holy Frankish Empire and the Kingdom of Eiffelland are not one that the Tsar has a desire to entangle himself in at this moment. It is just another consequence of the collapse of Pannonia that was poorly facilitated by the powers that wished to divide it, and the winds keep blowing discourse as it is as poorly executed as the execution of the formation of Pannonia roughly some two hundred years ago by the very same powers that now divide it. We have no intentions of involving ourselves upon this squabble between the Franks and the Germans, and we shall only find ourselves involved in the event that the integrity of the Frankish Empire is threatened, or if some other consequential acts occur during a conflict between the two nations that force our hand to take up arms against the Kingdom of Eiffelland. In that event, we would hope that the Kingdom of Guienny would see our logical reasoning behind entering such a conflict and know that the Empire had restrained itself until its interests were threatened and it was left with no other choice but to act prudently. We have no intentions to dismantle the mainland integrity Kingdom of Eiffelland in any potential conflict past, present, or future, unless extenuating circumstances force our hands.

As such, we are willing to discuss the issue of a joint strike against the naval forces of those disloyal to the second republic while we sort thru some of our issues in haste. As any strike will need to be well planned and executed, and have a solid understanding of the situation. For the Kingdom of Eiffelland may not be as concerted as your Kingdom is Secretary Dubois.
