HEADLINES
National ~ Cofressa, Josepania: President Iōséph Konstantinos directed the Ministry of the Interior to coordinate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in setting up temporary residences for Ostmarker experts immediately following a diplomatic triumph with the Republic of @Ostmark. Shortly after President Konstantinos pledged to work with the Collectivist Congress in crafting a bill to institute a building program of affordable housing, the Ostmarker Foreign Office announced their intent to send 30 urban planners to the Collectivist Archipelago of St. Joseph to assist in the Josepanian housing program and submit designs from their own successful construction of affordable housing in the residential areas of Wien, all for free. Through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, President Konstantinos accepted Ostmarker offers to assist in fulfilling his pledge and ordered that the Ostmarker urban planners be housed in Josepania free of charge and their every need met while they reside in our great archipelago. President Konstantinos also requested that the Collectivist Congress work closely with consultation from the Ostmarker experts to craft bills that "provide the most efficient ways of giving every Josepanian a roof over their heads in accordance with Collectivist ideals of Peace, Prosperity, and Partnership." In a Joint Statement in response to the President's request, both the House of Delegates and the Archipelagic Senate promised to work closely with Ostmarker experts and draft a bill "as soon as possible."

International ~ Kipest, @Bajorország: The Pannonian Republic faces an increasingly grave existential crisis as nationalist separatists declare independence, proclaiming themselves to be the Republics of Bourdignie and Eugenia, while residents of the town of San Paolo announce their intent to join the neighboring Republic of Remion. As of today, on the international stage only The Federation of Westernesse has recognized the sovereignty of the breakaway republics, and the Remi Republic has not yet issued a statement regarding the town of San Paolo. When asked about the Pannonian Crisis, President Iōséph Konstantinos expressed his strong sympathies for the separatist movements, highlighting parallels between their struggles and Josepanian rebellious movements throughout the 1800s that eventually achieved independence from colonial Pelasgia. There is speculation that the Collectivist Archipelago may join The Federation in recognizing the sovereignty of these separatist movements, but this cannot be confirmed at this time.

HEADLINES
National ~ Cofressa, Josepania: The Collectivist Archipelago of St. Joseph officially recognized the breakaway Republics of Bourdignie and Eugenia in the midst of the increasingly chaotic crisis in @Bajorország, Foreign Minister Gregorios Notaras stating that Josepania stands "against all forms of imperialism as part of the Global Oppression Conspiracy; be they colonies, mandates, or minority ethnic groups within a nation's borders that do not have equal rights within that nation." Josepania is the second nation to recognize the independence of the separatist republics after the Federation of Westernesse, and President Iōséph Konstantinos remarked to reporters of the Archipelagic Times that "it is fitting the nations of the West are the most eager to support the freedom of all peoples, and although we are the first to declare our allegiance to freedom, we shall not be the last, and I urge other nations to follow in our footsteps in defending the people against the tyranny of the Kovács government."

International ~ Camp Hill, @Natal: Shortly after the Ostmarker Republic announced its intent to assist President Konstantinos in his efforts to eradicate homelessness in Josepania, the Natalian governmental aid organization Himyari Sun offered its support to the people of Josepania. According to the Natalian Harton Chronicle, the organization will send "a team of volunteer architects and workers, together with supplies for the building of cheap bur durable social housing," and will be led by Unathi kaMnotho, an accomplished architect renowned for his efforts in turning the Pearl township, once an infamous slum in Harton, into a beautiful suburb. In a Twatt shortly after receiving the news, President Konstantinos declared the generosity of the Natalians "shall not be forgotten by the people of Josepania, and... [they] shall forever be known as staunch allies of #Collectivism, marching with us [Josepanians] towards Peace, Prosperity, and Partnership." Both the Natalian and Ostmarker aid teams are expected to arrive soon in Cofressa and work closely with the Collectivist Congress in their efforts to craft a building program for housing and provide further advice and direct assistance.
