FOREIGN COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE
(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 two 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.
SENT WITH THE AUTHORITY AND APPROVAL OF GENERAL LEONE

Remion Ministry of Foreign Affairs
The General Council finds the plan proposed by the socialist government of Eugenia to its liking and does not oppose the transfer of the Serbovian enclaves to the respective Federation of Serbvoia. However, it is in the personal interest of the Admiral to inform her that the release of the Tarusi prisoners, the 196 soldiers arrested by the republic, can only take place in exchange for the unconditional release of the citizens of Remion rescued in the unfortunate shipwreck of the Oyleric, and the end of any political campaign of defamation. towards the Remion State.
