To His Excellency Nikolaos Chrysopoulos the 8th Count Chrysopoulos, His Imperial Majesty's Foreign Minister, Pelasgian Empire

Your Excellency,

It is with particular warmth that I greet you as a Brother in Faith and I pray the Holy Theotokos watches over you and Pelasgia.

And so it seems that the Intercession of Her Blessed Mantle may soon need to be strewn over all of Gallo-Germania as I sense that tensions are consistently building up across the numerous centres of power across our world. And in this web of power play, our Res Publica seemingly yet again finds itself at a cross-roads given her geographical position.

It is of course no secret between us that over our long mutual history we had stable relations with the Pelasgian Empire to our south of the Long Sea, and this is something the Res Publica intends to continue. Yet, in the powerplay surrounding us, with numerous blocs forming, it is my wish to enquire in more detail on the Pelasgian Empire's views on the current events and on the Empire's interactions with the Grand Duchy of Furlanie, on the Empire's view of the dispute between the Grand Duchy and the Organisation of Democratic States, of which both Pelasgia and Furlanie are observers, and of Pelasgia's adherence to the Status-Quo Treaties.

I may not hide that the Grand Duchy's direct sea bordering on both our realms matters for both of us. And any upsetting in the established balance one way or the other may prove detrimental to the Res Publica and to the Empire.

To the attention of the Right Honourable Vittorio Flangini, Foreign Affairs Director of the Remurian Commonwealth.

Honourable Mr. Flangini,

I warmly thank you for your greetings and wishes, and equally hope that the All-Holy Theotokos watches over the Remurian Commonwealth in these trying times.

The Pelasgian Empire has no formal stance on the disputes between the Organisation of Democratic States and the Grand Duchy of Furlanie. In so far as we are concerned, this is a matter between the two parties in which Pelasgia has no role. We do not intend to meddle in the affairs of other States.

Regarding our relationship with the Grand Duchy of Furlanie, Pelasgia is only willing to cooperate with Grau to the extent that doing so guarantees the Status Quo of the Long Sea. Any statements to the contrary, including by Grau, do not reflect Pelasgia's stance on the matter. This is in accordance with the sole Status Quo Treaty by which Pelasgia is bound, the Status Quo Treaty of 1956 with Kadikistan. Any diplomatic, defensive or other cooperation between Pelasgia and Furlanie will be limited to upholding the said status quo. Pelasgia has no interest in aggressive wars of expansion or other efforts at expanding by any party in continental Gallo-Germania. We have repeatedly avoided getting tangled up in Continental wars, and we intend to continue to do so.

Remuria has no reason to fear anything from Pelasgia. Pelasgia remains committed to peaceful relations and trade with Remuria, as we have done for centuries. Pelasgia would never support any aggressive designs against Remuria, or any other Gallo-Germanian Nation. Pelasgia merely intends to defend the Status Quo, and will aid its regional partners to the extent that that objective necessitates, in strictly defensive terms. Nothing more and nothing less.

Pelasgia does not see itself as being part of any bloc, except perhaps the loose amicable association of Himyari States known as the H3 or the Three Himyari Lions. Anything beyond that is strictly outside the scope of our interest, as Pelasgia has always been and will always continue to be a Himyari power. We see no particular benefit and plenty of harm in power projection outside of Himyar.

Signed and sealed,

Nikolaos Chrysopoulos
8th Count Chrysopoulos
HIM Foreign Minister

Your Excellency,

To say that the Commonwealth of Remurian Nations is worried and concerned about the situation in the Pelasgian Empire is to commit the most blatant of understatements. We are all observing with horror the attempt at communist insurgency orchestrated by Ivar and we fully expect the Union to bolster the insurgent efforts whether by means direct or indirect in the coming days or weeks, just as they have bolstered such efforts everywhere and on every occasion.

At this tage, the Remurian Commonwealth deems a low profile approach from our part is required and warranted, until such a time as the Rurikgrad Pact manifests itself more openly.

We, therefore, are ready to extend support for anti-communist efforts by sharing information on international wire transfers, by blocking any transfers through entities factually owned by Remurian nationals to support any DKKP or Rurikgrad Effort in Pelasgia and provide additional support should Your Excellency or your General Staff request so.

Should, or more likely once the Rurikgrad Pact manifests its support openly, the Remurian Commonwealth shall enact a more open and public anti-communist approach by our Federal Government.

Furthermore, the Commonwealth is extremely worried by apparent reports that members of the Pelasgian Armed Forces have targeted members of the Liberal Constitutionalist Party, that has itself openly opposed the Rurikgrad Pact. We hope that such reports are the result of over-zealous approach by local commanders on a tactical level, rather than a directive on the strategic level.

Should Your Excellency believe that the leading members of the Liberal Constitutionalist Party should for a moment be kept at a distance from the anti-communist operations currently taking place throughout the Pelasgian Empire, the Remurian Commonwealth is ready to offer options at our diplomatic representations in Pelasgia or within the Remurian Commonwealth itself.

Finally, as our nations and brethren and faith and cultural parallels may be drawn, the Remurian Commonwealth shall seek the support of the Pelasgian Empire in ensuring the safety of Remurian citizens and their Pelasgian family members. We have already ordered our citizens to report to diplomatic safe havens and we will seek to launch repatriation missions. Your Excellency's colleagues have already received a public request by my colleague, the Honourable Director for Foreign Affairs, Vittorio Flangini.

We understand that the time might not be best for inbound and outbound traffic, however, should the Pelasgian Empire require certain low profile shipments or cargo to be delivered by inbound flights or ships, my Office shall consider such requests and arrange for such shipments in the most confidential of ways.

Honourable Mr. Stavoti,


Your statements of solidarity are deeply touching, and we thank you for them. Any sane man must be horrified at the cold-blooded fashion in which Ivar has instigated terror on a mass scale in pursuit of its foreign policy objectives, all supposedly for the sake of peace and stability. Of course, your choice to keep a low profile is sane and justified from our perspective, given how Ivar reacted to our own foreign policy decisions.
All your support is welcome, and we gladly accept it. Though we currently are content with the level of aid proposed, in the future, financial support in the form of low-interest war loans and the provision of cheap materiel to replace equipment that may be lost, in case our industrial capacity termporarily declines during the war, might be necessary. We hope to be able to request such aid, if the need arises. That being the most important support Remuria could offer would investments in Pelasgia after the current internal conflict has ended.
Rest assured that the Imperial Pelasgian Armed Forces and law enforcement have taken every step possible to protect Pelasgian parliamentarians, including the Liberal Constitutionalists. Though some members of the Liberal Constitutionalist Party have indeed been detained, this has been due to their links with the DKKP. This has also been the case with the more vocal pro-Treaty of Spesse Absolutist Party members. Their numbers are limited, and most Pelasgian Deputies need not worry about any legal prosecution.
We are, of course, more than willing to aid you in repatriating your compatriots from Pelasgia in these trying times. Our Embassy has issued a public statement acknowledging your request and authorising the transfers. The Embassy has relayed a list of safe evacuation points and routes designated by the General Directorate of Imperial Police and the Imperial Corps of Gendarmerie for Remurian repatriation efforts to centre around. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance in this matter.

Your Excellency,

We thank you for your missive and your reassurances as to the safety and wellbeing of the Deputies as we make no secret that representatives of the People are held in importance in the Commonwealth, and the interests of the People are our key guiding principle. Thus, Your Excellency shall understand that a proper constitutional process and institutions of responsible governments are at the cornerstone of our foreign politics and something we would appreciate to see in Pelasgia, as brethren in faith, once the communist uprising is disposed of.

We shall, therefore, support efforts to stabilise the situation and we are working within the Federal Government to outline a policy of economic support to the Pelasgian Empire that we may then approve through the Serene Assembly Broad and Wide.

To ensure continued and required interoperability between our nations, we would suggest that Your Excellency's General Staff detaches a team of officers you trust fully to serve as liaisons with the Office of the Defence Director of the Remurian Commonwealth in Emerita Augusta, such liaison officers to be based at the Defence Directorate facilities, rather than your regular Embassy, to ensure efficient communication without unneeded eavesdropping, given the undecided political situation in Pelasgia and potential leaks.

Our less public and more confidential channels of communications between Pelasgia and Remuria shall be centralized under the Defence Directorate on the Remurian side, with Foreign Affairs and Foreign Security Directorates participating in the joint work group, chaired by Her Excellency the Magna Ducessa in person.

Honourable Mrs. Stavoti, Orofilatti, and Flangini,


Once more, we thank you for your unwavering support of our Empire in these trying times, and echo your sentiment regarding the need for Constitutional reform through lawful means. Our Empire is committed to holding elections for a Constituent Assembly on July 17, as planned, and to approve any referendum resulting therefrom via referendum. Rest assured of our genuine commitment to returning Pelasgia to the fold of Europe's constitutional and parliamentary states.
Your proposal regarding liaisons is reasonable and necessary for our common cooperation. Therefore, we shall dispatch a team of three military officers, headed by Lt. Colonel Stavros Protopapadakis of HIM Own Krypteia, to serve as HIM Government's liaison with your own defence and intelligence leadership. We look forward to working closely with you in coming months.

Signed and sealed,

Porphyrios Theosophides
