Larkin, Foreign Minister of the Kingdom of Gunnland The Democratic Republic of Caledonia hails to it's southern neighbours full of respect. While we understand the motives behind their concerns we wish to state that the Democratic Republic of Caledonia is a peace loving nation that wishes to continue the tradition of pragmatism and realpolitik that has characterised the foreign policy for our country since the proclamation of the 2nd republic back in 1956. For that, Caledonia wishes to keep a cordial relationship with the Kingdom of Gunnland and we are ready to cooperate closely with the authorities of the kingdom to keep the peace in the north. For that, we are ready to negotiate and to come to a series of compromises. We are ready to offer safe passage to the royal family and to ex-Benadur Olivia mab Andras first to Gunnland and from there to their country of choosing, but we hope that this won't be used by the Kingdom of Gunnland as an opportunity to create an illegal foreign backed government and thus begin to fund state terrorism. We will soon hold a referendum for the people to decide if they want to keep the new republican constitution and free elections will follow, but we won't accept a warmongering minority government like the one of the National Union led by Saig Madec to lead this country. Attached to this communique you will receive two invasion plans, one for the Kingdom of Boumerda and one for the Peninsular Republic. Those plans have been put together by the National Union with the goal of reigniting Caledonian imperialism, something which in this day and hour is not only unlikely but it would have been a serious mistake which would have brought Caledonia into a war with Boumerda and with Bourgogne and with the scheme of the alliances, with the whole Trier Concordat, bringing us all in a world war. We hope that for the sake of the northern peoples, Gunnland will react friendly to the olive branch that we offer and that we won't see a Steel Wall being built along the Gothic Sea like we have seen in the 1950s. Each people has the right to self determination and the right to govern itself like it sees fit. Gunnish people may prefer a monarchy, but with our current proclamation, the Caledonians are now living in their 3rd republic. Only cooperation will save the peace and will keep war away. Let us continue to live in peace. Signed, Elia Neven Chairwoman of the Revolutionary Council OOC: I created this thread to have some sort of channel of communication between Caledonia, Gunnland and Elben. Thing of it as something like the red telephone line. I would be happy to see it used by Gunnish communications with Elben too, but if you don't want it, it can be kept as a channel between Caledonia and the other two.
