    Propontis, 15 September 1957
    To the attention of the Right Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Social Republic of Beira.

    Honourable Sir/Madam,

    I have the most distinct honour of informing you of the wish of His Imperial Majesty's Government for there to be a diplomatic summit between the governments of our respective nations to occur, an honourable task which I execute with the greatest of pleasures. It is the hope of His Imperial Majesty's Government that such a meeting shall serve to enhance cooperation and understanding between Vila Flor and Propontis, despite the trouble past of our Commonwealths. More specifically, His Imperial Majesty's Government hopes to touch upon the issues of trade and movement between our countries, which we find to be pivotal to any peaceful coexistence of neighbouring states, as well as greater diplomatic cooperation of a bilateral and multilateral character on issues concerning our region as a whole. If your government would share a desire, I would like to humbly invite a delegation of your choosing to Propontis to meet with our government and to discuss the aforementioned topics, as well as any other issues you might have in mind, in greater length. Alternatively, our own government would be willing to dispatch a delegation to the Social Republic. In any case, I eagerly await your response and extend the most warm and truthful wishes for a long and prosperous future to your Nation and State on behalf of the Pelasgian People and His Imperial Majesty.

    Yours sincerely,

    Ioannes Stephanou Delevorias

    Secretary of State for External Affairs and Authente of Anaktora
    Pelasgian Empire

    JESUS CHRIST CONQUERS

    Comunicado aberto
    Vila Flor, 16 Setembro 1957

    Honorable Sir,

    The Social Republic of Beira has made the opening of the Trans-Himyari trade routes as a national project since our current chancellor, the Right Honorable Pedro da Silva has been appointed to the office by the Civic Front. The last event, including the de-politization of the economy is but the apogee of a series of politics and reforms that is showing us that the days of the Civic Process are coming to an end and that it has been an enormous success in stabilizing the country from the crises of 1920 and to improve it's economic power and the people's standard of living up to levels upon communism is nothing more than a caricature which isn't worth the effort to even acknowledge as existing.

    As part of this epilogue of the Civic Process, the need to reopen the trade routes which have made Beira prosper in the 1880-1900 period is imperative. That is why the government of the Social Republic is coming with the economic plan called The Himyari Tigers, specially emphasizing on the plural, to show that the three most important nations in North Himyar, Andaluz, Pelasgia and Beira can and must work together for future economic development and prosperity, in the future, maybe even reaching the levels of the Gallo-Germanian nations, and why not even eclipse them. In late antiquity, the Northern Tiburan Empire lagged behind, while the south prospered. We hope those days will come again.

    For this, our government will gladly accept your invitation for a state visit. I will personally come to Propontis together with the vice minister, state secretaries and a select few corporation chairmen and women to represent Beira and to usher an era of trade and commerce between our two nations.

    Signed,
    Gabriel Cabral
    Minister of Foreign Affairs

    The State Secretariat for External Affairs, known historically as the Logothesion of the Drome, the Logothesion of Foreign Affairs, and the Imperial Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was housed in the Megaron Palama (Palamas Palace/Mansion), a large edifice built in the Neo-Propontine style, integrating features of Gallo-Germanian Baroque and traditional Propontine Architecture. Located on the corner where Leophoros Agoras Valentiou and Odos Agiou Mina met, the building in question was eight storeys tall, the white marble of which it was mostly made being rather prominent in its facade. Pillasters, pillars and windows surrounded and complemented by all sorts of decoratif motifs, reliefs and patterns, some purely baroque, some purely Propontine and some somewhere in between, ornamented the facade of the building, while large windows were also present at regular intervals. The entrance of the Megaron Palama, a large metal gate located atop a flight of stairs and behind a series of towering Codrian* pillars, boasted one the few displays of the State Coat of Arms of the Pelasgian Empire, an emblem which was rarely seen and almost always substituted by the traditional Imperial Seal within Pelasgia proper.
    *of the Corinthian order, IRL

    The Secretary of State for External Affairs, Ioannes Delevorias, son of Stephanos, awaited in his office at the top floor of the building. Like most of the Megaron's interior, the Secretary's office was luxuriously decorated, its walls coated in the red tapestry reserved for officials just below the Imperial Purple, with small golden double-headed eagles being repeated as part of the tapestry's decorative motif. Pillasters, pillars and reliefs not unlike those outside, if not more detailed and impressive, often coated in gold or painted thus and with other vibrant colours, gave life to the marble skeleton of the Megaron, while fine oaken furniture and leather-cover books adorned the space of the office. As with any other major building, the Imperials like to display their wealth as well as the unique mix of Western Progress, Modernity and Ingenuity and Propontine Tradition, Hierarchy and Perseverance which, in their eyes, had put the formerly crumbling paper tiger of an Empire back at the top of Himyar.

    State Secretary Delevorias himself, officially the Authente (Lord) of the city of Anaktora, in the region of Atthis, and its surrounding lands, was a middle-aged man of a stark complexion and a sturdy, nearly emotionless face. His family had earned the nickname "Oi Vrachoi" ("The Rocks") due to their complexion and their stoicism and lack of emotionalism, traits of which were complemented by the aforementioned appearance and which Ioannes Delevorias had inherited and exemplified. His grey hair had once been black, as some last vestiges of its colour near the back of the neck served to prove, with the top of his head being bald. A pair of dark brown eyes was to be found at the front of his face, with his rather short but moderately wide nose in between, under his somewhat large forehead. Sat down at his desk, he scanned some documents quickly to review them once more, simultaneously though not primarily checking them for slightest of errors; this he did while waiting to be notified of the Beirans' arrival. When long-awaited knock on the door followed by a few words finally came, he stood up, dressed in a dark grey three piece suit with a white shirt and a purple tie and took out his silver pocket watch, a gift from his brother to congratulate him on his first ambassadorial appointment to Varinia nearly two decades before.

    "Not a minute late," he remarked and continued down to the entrance of the building.

    The car carrying the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Beira had just stopped outside with some footmen opening the doors, allowing the delegates of the Social Republic to exit the vehicle. The footmen covered the men with umbrellas immediately, for, despite the temperatures being upwards of twenty degrees, the autumn sky over Propontis had finally decided a good deal of rain was long overdue. Perhaps it will stop soon, so I can show them the interior courtyard later, Delevorias thought. As the delegates climbed up the stairs he greeted them and shook their hands. Following these minor pleasantries, the Secretary, followed by some aides and advisors of his, led the Beirans to the large meeting room on the floor right above, sitting accross from each other at a large table, with the flags of the two countries placed in the room.

    "I hope your flight was pleasant, Mr. Carbal," the Secretary said after the two delegations had finally sat down.



    OOC: [MENTION=1517]Saaremaa[/MENTION] , sorry if I went a bit fast with this post and if I took a bit too long to write it up. The start of the semester has made this rather busy.

    Gabriel Cabral knew the city of Propontis very well. He lived a year in it when he came to Pelasgia in a student exchange program and then more than ten years, when he was the ambassador of the Social Republic to the Pelasgian Empire. He liked the majesty of the imperial capital which was literally emanating history. While traveling from the airport to the Megaron, Cabral was surprised that he started to remember the youthful days in which he studied in Propontis in the first and only student exchange program the Social Republic offered, until this year, when the experience is repeated, this time in Andaluz.

    "It really was, Mr. Delevorias," said Cabral in Beiran. Even if he new Pelasgian and as much as he liked to discuss directly to the Pelasgian secretary, he still was a representative of the Social Republic in this state visit. Some other time, when the two will be simple citizens, he would like to have a chat with Delevorias in Pelasgian, as Cabral thought the two might have had some common subjects to discuss considering their similar age and his experiences in Propontis. Yet, he was tired, tired of the internal happenings of Beira and the secret plans of Pedro da Silva still haven't started, so he was happy not to tire himself more by making an effort to speak Pelasgian and instead rely on the translators.

    After the first formalities and the arrival and seating in the meeting room, Cabral decided to go to start with the most important subject of the meeting:

    "Your excellencies, esteemed Mr. Secretary Delevorias, as you know, the main basis of the creation of the Social Republic of Beira is anti-communism and resistance against the Red Imperialism emanating from Ivar. As much as the civic process is criticized it saved Beira from falling into communist hands and with it, it saved North Himyar from a highly destructive war. During the civic process, The Pelasgian Empire was always a close ally and friend to the Social Republic and helped it defend our continent from all kinds of communist infiltration and insurgencies. We hope that this will continue even with the recent coup in Pelasgia and even if the civic process would, God willing, end and Beira would return to it's old status, now that the communist threat has been averted. There are, of course, other problems that need to be discussed, like the existence of the Peninsular Republic, a socialist state right on our part of the world and the narcotics trafficking originating from the Empire of Loago, to name the most important ones," said Gabriel Cabral, presenting the main issues of the meeting.

    Secretary Delevorias could barely contain a faint smile, seeing Minister Cabral speaking in Pelasgian and feeling at home in a foreign capital. He could not help but see a bit of himself during a recent travel to Varinia after so many years since he had stopped being an ambassador there. Truth be told, he had always wondered whether, deep down, all diplomats were similar people: human beings that circled the world and left a bit of themselves at every place in the world, only being anchored to a specific country due to their origins and employment. Alas, such considerations were better left to a time after the meeting.

    "The issues you are raising are quite important, Mr. Cabral," he replied; "With regard to the Red Imperialism which has spread its foul tentacles across the world, I cannot help but express my admiration for the valour with which the leaders of the Social Republic conducted themselves to end the threat of the Red Terror spreading to Beira once and for all. For our part, I can assure you that the recent Constitutional Change will have no impact on our committment to eradicating the foul evil of Communism from the Ebony Continent; if anything, it shall strengthen our resolve."

    The State Secretary took a sip of water before continuing, being aware of the careful steps needed to tread, metaphorically speaking, on territory which Pelasgia had acknowledged to be under the suzerainty of Dulwich, in exchange for Dulwich's acknowledgement of Pelasgian dominion over other areas of Himyar.

    "The situation in southwestern Himyar is rather concerning, indeed. The Empire of Loago, if a state plagued by such a degree of lawlessness may still be called thus, is the source of a considerable source of illegal drug imports; the only way to reasonably counter the terrestrial influx of drugs would be to strengthen the security of borders near or with Loago and its nearby states; border fences and outposts would not be entirely out of the question, as our use of such means has proven to be very effective in stemming the tide of drugs coming in from our southern and eastern borders. This, however, leaves the primary source of influx of drugs to the urban centres of both of our countries: the maritime smuggling routes. Though these routes were originally dominated by the Outlaw Phratries of the Archipelago, since our extermination of said criminal clans, Gunnishmen have stepped in rather quickly to take over the trade.

    "Though not as numerous and without a significant foothold, this domination of the smuggling operations, coupled with their piracy efforts, could make the Gunns a considerable problem if they were to be left unchecked. Joint patrols of the Long Sea, along with coordination with other Long Sea and Kalahari countries to monitor both drug trade and the movement of Gunns in general could be helpful in this regard. As for the degenerate Marxists of the Peninsular 'Republic', it is not entirely uncertain the proximity of a Marxist state to the colonies of a certain other Republic might see the latter intervene to permanently remove the threat, without a need for any intervention on our part."

    Gabriel Cabral showed a timid mile for a fraction of a second and then became serious again.

    "I wish to thank the Pelasgian Empire for it's support, and you too, senhor Delevorias. The goal of Chancellor Pedro da Silva is to contain both the extremes in the Beiran politics. He wishes to completely break the alliance between the Partido Azul and elements in the army that are ready to respond to any call from felon elements from the parliament and immediately start to use violence once they don't get what they like. It is already a shame to have such people in the parliament, but even outrageous to see them resort to violence so easily. As for the other extreme in the society, the Chancellor wishes to provide a series of democratic reforms to let the liberals let off some steam so they won't radicalize like they did in the infamous decade of the 20' and thus destabilize and destroy our work in keeping Beira safe. All those changes, represented by the code name 'End of the Civic Process' will not affect the economic structure of the Beiran society, as we all have learned in the last decades, that corporatism is the only economic system that can provide a balance between growth and social stability. The Social Republic, or, should I say, after the End of the Civic Process, the Estados Unidos, by reverting to the old name, will remain a staunch supporter of an anti-marxist continent and will still keep close to the economical cooperation plans between the Empire and the Midday Tiburan Nations of Beira and Andaluz," continued Cabral.
