Rheinfeld took up the phone.

"Rheinfeld."

"Hallo, Herr Kanzler. I have Volkskanzler Grasser on the encrypted line. It is urgent."

"Thank you Frau Danitz. Please connect him through."

There was a click in the line. Then the connection with Volkskanzler Grasser was established.

"Hallo Herr Volkskanzler Grasser. Kanzler Rheinfeld here."

OOC: Sorry for the late reply.

"Rheinfeld!" the alarmed voice of the People's Chancellor broke through the line into Ronald's ear "What is the ODS up to in Crotobaltislavonia, is Johnston Isles out of their mind? Did they warn you of the consequences of such action, should Kadikistan decide to trigger mutual assistance obligations of the Rurikgrad Pact? Or was it an unilateral action without consulting ODS member nations?". Grasser's tone appeared to be extremely worried. In fact, he was rather surprised to hear Rheinfel's calm voice on the other end of the line. However, Grasser and Rheinfeld had many chances to meet and talk in person in the past, and between the two countries, despite the recent economic tensions caused by ODS sanctions against the members of the Rurikgrad Pact, including Ostmark, diplomatic relations have always been warm, with several occasions of international cooperation and mutual support.

"We don't want to fight a war with Eiffelland-Retalia if we don't have to. None of us do. It's a stupid war! It's pure madness! I need to know if Eiffelland-Retalia will consider Johnston Isles's violation of CBS territorial integrity as an unilateral action, or if this truly is the preamble of a global war we will all regret in a very short time." the Wise Leader seemed to be appealing to Rheinfeld's rationality and pragmatism
"I am doing the best i can to de-escalate this nasty situation, but i sincerely need your help."

When Grasser's "Rheinfeld!" blasted through the telephone, Rheinfeld moved the horn a few centimeters away from his ear to avoid ear damage. This was serious. Actually, the Eiffelloretalian government hadn't been informed about this Johnstonian plane. He didn't know who ordered this action, but it was definitely not the ODS.

"To be honest, I myself was as amazed as the Rurikgrad Pact was. I can reassure you that this action was not discussed within the ODS, and that it was definitely not an action on behalf of the ODS. I can also reassure you that the Government of the Johnston Isles realises what the consequences of such a bold action can be, and what a violation of a country's airspace means. The same for the top of the Johnstonian armed forces. We are currently investigating what happened here, but as it looks now, the pilot of the plane in question made a grave mistake. A very grave mistake. This was not a planned action but an accident."
