Demetrio Verdugo, Representative of San Jose to the European Forum:

It is the Vrjjpoorter High Commissioner to the European Forum who needs a strong cup of coffee, as he and the Principality he represents appears to be living in a dream world that they are attempting to drag the rest of us into.

Pray tell, where are the communiques from the Thalgäuer people or authorities begging for Vrijpoorter defense against the so-called Eugenian Conquering Forces? Surely such diplomatic messages must exist to prompt a sudden intervention by the Royal Vrijpoort Expeditionary Force that took the international community by surprise? Furthermore, per Vrijpoorter media, this intervention meant to protect the Thalgäuer people was preceded by quite an impressive artillery and missile bombardment of Pannonian military installations. San Jose is curious: were the Thalgäuer people being attacked by Pannonian military forces, requiring such a decisive response? Surely the ZLA as is so often presented as a boogeyman by the Vrijpoorters had not occupied every single Pannonian military facility in the area?

As it stands, based on the facts, we can admit that the High Commissioner is correct that the situation on the ground for the Thalgäuer people is indeed different: these people are being occupied by the RVEF for Vrijpoorter benefit alone. From what we observe, this is an effort by a border state to create at best a buffer zone against the crisis enveloping its neighbor, at worst a land grab of imperialist intentions, and those observable facts do not correspond with the repetitive protests of the High Commissioner. Unless new, indisputable facts are presented to this body that prove even one of the High Commissioner's points, we will continue to openly and strenuously condemn this unilateral invasion by Vrijpoort and demand that they withdraw from the soil their imperialist boots tread upon, either voluntarily or by compulsion.

I yield the floor.

The delusional words of the honorable colleague from Vrijpoort are proof of how madness is a common disease at the top of the city-state power. To speak of peace operations and the choice and self-determination of the peoples inhabiting the region of Thalgau, which was occupied militarily even before they could express their opinion, is ridiculous and offends the intellect of all the members in this room.

We must note how the forces of Tarusa and Vrijpoort, while at present sharing a border. illegally, did not enter into armed confrontation. These are questions that a good politician should ask himself at this point. Are you planning the division of Pannonia with the Tarusa and Rus, deliberately ignoring and sabotaging the operations of the European Forum for your own personal gain?

Durston Howell III, Vrijpoorter High Commissioner to the European Forum:

Honourable members,

My honourable counterpart from San Jose is asking for letters and stamps and seals of approval from a region engulfed in war. I invite him or someone from his government to travel to Thalgau and speak with the people on the street and indeed the Thalgau Council, the group of mayors and local leaders who are doing their best to govern the province.

Was the Pannonian Army harming civilians in Thalgau? Not yet. Had we not gone in, no one knows what could have happened. The world saw the PA doing atrocious things in East Zara. Who is to say they wouldn't have continued that elsewhere? And what of Csegnia? The leftover of Pannonia? The nationalist, ethno-superior views of elements of their armed forces and government give us in Vrijpoort grave concern. Ethnic cleansing is on the horizon, my dear honourable friends. Today it is thus, tomorrow it shall be that. Preventative measures are imperative to ensure slaughters do not happen.

Shall the RVEF leave and allow the Eugenians and their Remian supporters to simply waltz in and do as they see fit? By golly, no!

I shall say it now and again and again: democracy! A referendum! Only this will solve the problem and ensure the people get what they want. Then we shall leave with pleasure.

Or does my honourable friend from San Jose not believe in democratic self determination?

I give way.

*the man commented while Durston's colleague Howell III was still speaking.*

Hit the Armed Forces of Pannonia, still and motionless, inside their barracks, where they have been since we imposed the NFZ, which stopped any military operation of the PA in the Zarans regions.
It was a work of butchery, not an operation of peace.

...your men should be tried, not thanked.

Durston Howell III, Vrijpoorter High Commissioner to the European Forum:

Honourable members,

I must protest at the ridiculous insinuations of the honourable member from Remion. So because the RVEF and Tarusan forces have not engaged with each other at the shared border, we are now suddenly in cahoots and, no less, planning the partitioning of greater Pannonia?!

Absurd, simply put. Vrijpoort occupied Thalgau both to protect the local people and to protect Vrijpoort from a spillover of the conflict. The Tarusan forces have not attempted to enter Thalgau and they have not targeted the RVEF or the civilians of Thalgau. If they do, they will be met with defencive retaliation from the RVEF as would any aggressor.

But instead of talking about fantasies of geographical division, how about we discuss how we can help Thalgau decide on its future on its own? How could they have held a referendum when they had hardly any internal governance and they were under impending threat from outside forces made up of different cultural and ethnic groups?

We are prepared, nay, already engaging with locals in Thalgau to help them set up the frameworks for a democratic future, whether that be as an autonomous region, an independent state, part of Bourdignie, Euegenie or what have you.

All I hear from the other honourable members are conspiracy theories and moans from bruised egos. My government is asking for help in getting Thalgau the structure it needs to vote on its future, but instead we are lambasted for sending in troops to protect the defenceless. As if the Remians and their posse have not sent in forces into greater Pannonia already. Nay, they were indeed the first. Their illegal no fly zone involved violating the airspace of Pannonia and the Remian special forces violated Pannonia again to arrest those wanted by Tibur.

The hypocrisy is sickening.

I give way.

Bonifác Nagy, Csengia and the Two Zaras (Pannonia) Representative to the European Forum:

Esteemed Representatives,

There is a very clear reason why peace has not been achieved. There is a very clear reason why borders change and troops shuffle around while this body debates peace. The reason is quite clear, and it is almost astonishing how difficult it has been for all governments to figure this out...

Not a single thing the EF has done has included the primary government that leads this region. Csengia and the Two Zaras are the legitimate nation in the region and until a peace plan includes our opinions we will not adhere to any cease-fire, nor any peace plan or process. You want peace? All advancing troop movements will come to a halt and a cease-fire agreed to once we are no longer dictated to, but instead worked with.

Thank you, I yield the floor.

Durston Howell III, Vrijpoorter High Commissioner to the European Forum:

Which barracks were targeted? Which men were butchered? The honourable member should get his facts straight. The RVEF targeted artillery, radar and SAM installations and PA forces largely surrendered peacefully during the altercation. Those who did have even been granted amnesty with options for residency in Vrijpoort if they wished to leave greater Pannonia.

We do not slaughter. We targeted legitimate military installations that could have threatened our operation but did not go after men sleeping in barracks. Absurd.

I am sure that Thalgau's mothers of defenseless young soldiers killed by your missiles thank you wholeheartedly. I would also propose the idea of setting up a day to remember: The day of the butchers. Perhaps too picturesque, but it brings to mind the facts as they really happened.

Demetrio Verdugo, Representative of San Jose to the European Forum:

Honorable Representatives of the European Forum, what I am asking for from the Vrijpoorter High Commissioner is facts rather than hearsay, proof of pleas for assistance from the Thalgäuer people or authorities to the Vrijpoorters prior to the intervention rather than potentially staged thanks for it after the intervention. But in the process it appears that the High Commissioner has already given me an implied answer to my questions: there was no plea for assistance, no mandate to intervene from Thalgau, because the Thalgäuer people were not being oppressed, abused, or harmed by the Pannonian Army, at least "not yet" as the High Commissioner has stressed. As such, we are forced to conclude that this was a preemptive invasion, and the idea of protecting Thalgäuer people was a convenient excuse.

As for the High Commissioner's question about believing in democratic self-determination, San Jose does, but we'd prefer it didn't come with a Vrijpoorter soldier looming ominously in the background.

Regardless of all of that, I must remind the High Commissioner and the representatives of the European Forum that Vrijpoort is in violation of the fourth point of the Verdugo Peace Plan, which I again quote in verbatim:

"The Council of Guaranteeing Powers will ensure that the borders of all states are respected by all neighboring powers."

Vrijpoort is not a member of the Council of Guaranteeing Powers, nor an agreed upon volunteer working in direct cooperation with the Council, and it is therefore not mandated by this international body to provide any peacekeeping forces within the Pannonian region. As such, Vrijpoort is currently not respecting the borders of the states within the Pannonian region, and therefore has violated international law. So, with all of this in mind, I ask the High Commissioner of Vrijpoort directly: does he dispute the facts I have laid out above?


Bonifác Nagy, Csengia and the Two Zaras (Pannonia) Representative to the European Forum:

Esteemed Representatives,

There is a very clear reason why peace has not been achieved. There is a very clear reason why borders change and troops shuffle around while this body debates peace. The reason is quite clear, and it is almost astonishing how difficult it has been for all governments to figure this out...

Not a single thing the EF has done has included the primary government that leads this region. Csengia and the Two Zaras are the legitimate nation in the region and until a peace plan includes our opinions we will not adhere to any cease-fire, nor any peace plan or process. You want peace? All advancing troop movements will come to a halt and a cease-fire agreed to once we are no longer dictated to, but instead worked with.

Thank you, I yield the floor.
As for the remarks by the Honorable Representative of the recently declared government of Csgenia, there is truth in your words that a significant obstacle to peace is the lack of cooperation by the Csgenians. But good sir, may I remind you that it is Csgenia who has consistently refused to cooperate with this body? Under the late-Kovacs regime it refused to recognize reality, and look where that got us as a community. Its stubborn refusal to recognize the reality of Bourdignie and Eugenian independence has done nothing but exacerbate and inflame tensions in the region that has led us to this point.

The reason you are dictated to by this body, sir, is because you refuse to cooperate with this body, and instead you repeatedly declare you can put your own house in order when clearly you cannot.

Nonetheless, the halting of all troop movements and a concrete ceasefire are sound and reasonable demands, and despite my government's profound disagreements with yours, I am compelled to stand by you and second this demand, and call upon the appointed Council of Guaranteeing Powers to enforce this demand upon all parties within the Pannonian region.

I yield the floor.

Roland Hörschelmann, Eiffellandian representative to the European Forum:

Esteemed colleagues,

Let's not forget one thing: The government-Kovács is basically responsible for the current situation. The fact that Pannonia fell apart is directly the consequence of Prime-Minister Kovács's actions. Remion and The Federation of Westernesse, and later on my own country, stepped in upon request by the Bourdignians, the Eugenians, the Hohenseeers and the Bécsers. Accusations against the Remians about landgrab attempts are without any factual basis.

Furthermore, it cannot be used as an excuse to just walk in with your soldiers, like Vrijpoort did in Thalgau. I need more information regarding the events in Thalgau, but it is a fact that the Thalgäuer did not ask for an intervention by the Vrijpoorter armed forces. Vrijpoort stepped in at its own initiative, and up to now the only justification I hear is that Vrijpoort would just do what Remion did. Furthermore, the current events concerning refugees along the border between Vrijpoort and Thalgau do not confirm the humanitary intentions behind the Vrijpoorter intervention.

It is also correct that a return to the pre-Kovács Pannonia is impossible. Too much has happened because of that. The Csengian republic must realise that. Unfortunately, it does not do so. And exactly because it does not face this fact but still clings to a dream about a united Pannonia under Csengian control, there is no room for us to take the opinions of the government of Csengia seriously.
The same accounts for the government of Tarusa. Also this government clings to a dream about a united Pannonia, but then à la Kovács. In the meantime, it does everything to undermine the processes in the Council of Guaranteeing Powers, and on top of that sieges San Lucia consciously risking the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. I will not plea for the removal of Tarusa from the Council of Guaranteeing Powers; however, I do ask myself why Tarusa does not withdraw from it, given the fact that it does not want to stick to the Verdugo Peace Plan.
The situation is even worse. When the Verdugo and Galán Peace Plans were under discussion and under vote, the representative of Tarusa remained remained silent. He did not even show up. When he had the chance to modify the plans according to something Tarusa could agree with, he wasn't there. How can we take Tarusa's wishes into account if Tarusa doesn't voice them? And now the only thing we hear from Tarusa is "no" to everything. We know all too well what Tarusa does not want, but Tarusa does not voice workable alternatives. The only thing we hear is Tarusa's dream of a united Pannonia à la Kovács, a dream that a vast majority of the former Pannonians consider a bad dream that should never come true, and on top of that a dream impossible to come true.

It can very well be that Tarusa disagrees with the Verdugo Peace Plan, but then its government should voice a workable alternative. Its government's current behaviour is counterproductive.

I yield the floor.

Bonifác Nagy, Csengia and the Two Zaras (Pannonia) Representative to the European Forum:

Esteemed Representatives,

Our government is tired of being lectured to. All your governments claim some sort of moral high ground but have shown zero ability to act any different than we have. Much like the Kovács regime refused to cooperate with separatists, your Governments refuse to cooperate with Csengia. The result? You will never have peace because peace is a two way road. When you insist that it flows only one way as you have done, you end up with endless conflict, and this is a conflict I can assure you will be endless because of the inept diplomacy practiced by the nations of this so called regional council.

Because you are all unwilling to endorse a ceasefire that includes the rational demands of Csengia, this Government makes it clear that it will never recognize the Eugenian Government, and the actions of Remion are those of an invasion. I make it clear from my Government that a state of war exists between Remion and Csengia. We will defend our borders!

Thank you, I yield the floor.

Hörschelmann whispered to one of his aides: "Rationale Forderungen? Von ihm? Haben Sie zufälligerweise welche gehört? Ich nicht." [Rational demands? From him? Did you by any chance hear any? I didn't.]

Roland Hörschelmann, Eiffellandian representative to the European Forum:

Esteemed colleagues,

Like I mentioned earlier, His Grace Baron Bakhmeteff and Mr. Nagy have been very vocal up to now about what they don't want. Furthermore, apart from a unified Pannonia that the majority of the former Pannonians doesn't want. these two gentlemen haven't voiced what they do want. It is probably Mr. Nagy's strategy to scream that his country's claims are ignored. In any case, Mr. Nagy and his government have a choice: Will they continue to be part of the problem, or will they become part of the solution?

I yield the floor.

Master Baron Boris Bakhmeteff, Tarusan Representative to EF

The Tarusan and Vrijpoort forces in Thalgau are not hostile towards each other as they are both there to carry out similar missions. We know the City State has no intentions of taking illegal actions within the Csengian territory and acted in the best interest of the civilians of the region both their own and those in the former Pannonian state. While it may never have devolved into violent actions being caused by the former Pannonian forces taking actions against their citizens, it is possible collateral damage from their presence could have potentially occurred.

Our forces on the ground only cooperate in the interest of the civilians in the region, providing a safe corridor of travel to the rest of Csengia, or to the City State or where ever else they may wish to go. However it is quite clear the Republic of Remion will use any force it deems necessary remove our forces, and those of the City State from territory that Eugenia never physically held custody of in the first place.

We are constantly lectured about the "physical possession" at the time of the "peace treaty" for territory that would make up the breakaway regions, well by such standards if we are to apply them, that would make the City State occupied region still Csengian territory and not Eugenian, as they were not in physical possession of the region, but only claimed it. It is for those very reasons we acted against Sankt Viet as they claimed more territory than they physically possessed. We can easily call this a double standard being pushed by a "guaranteeing power" and the rest of those who plainly follow along.

Have our forces moved any further? They have not. Is the military response by the Republic significantly overkill and show exactly how they plan to use any means necessary to achieve their goal, which has long been a Eugenian dominated West Zara, which had never fully participated in the open revolt against the Kovacs regime, as they never were as committed as those in East Zara. I think that is a well enough answer in itself.

We support peace in the region, however, we only support a peace plan which as input from the Csengian nation and takes into accounts some its wishes and desires. Without such there will be no lasting peace. As the Republic escalates the conflict, we shall continue to respond in kind. How many bodies will have to come back to the Republic Mr. Udinese before the public outrage will oust your government for fighting a war that did not need to be fought?

Arcangelo Udinese, Remion Representative to the European Forum:

Representative Boris Bakhmeteff likes to remind us of how much they care about peace, refusing to participate in the drafting of the peace plan, its vote and its implementation. On the other hand, supporting a military coup like that of Csengian and their demands is certainly an act of peace that we all fail to understand. *Udinese says gesturing with his hands to emphasize the irony of his sentence.*

The Tarusa Empire is nothing more than a rabid dog trying to make a puppet military state on which it can exercise its will and destabilize central Europe. They have no humanitarian interests, much less peace, in their operations in San Lucia.
*The diplomat puts both hands on the table and leans out in front.*

Hearing the Honorable Boris Bakhmeteff filling his mouth with the word peace causes retching in intellectually honest men. Remion not only acts in compliance with international law and supported by the resolution of the European Forum, but also acts in the desire to put an end to an injustice and protect the Zaran people from possible repercussions of the military regime of Csengian. We will support by all means the advance of Eugenia's army in order to restore the legitimate conditions of the Republic. This also means a naval blockade of the port of San Lucia by the navies of Remion and the Federation, port currently occupied by foreign forces.

Master Baron Boris Bakhmeteff, Tarusan Representative to EF

Ahhh, yes because a resolution by the EF makes all actions justifiable when it barely passes and could have just as easily failed in a heartbeat. This forum does not hold the Ultimate Authority over the world. Perhaps we should make some motions about the Illegality of the Remion government? If it passes in the EF then what matter is it not that they were elected by the citizens of that country if we so say it is illegitimate?

Talks of peace, so says the nation that marches an army in and announces its will and desire to dislodge the forces from two nations whom are providing safety and humanitarian aid to the populace of those regions, but most importantly safety and security. The clarity of the picture is that the Republic is not happy to see its lapdog turn tail and retreat from ground it had illegally held, as it knows it certainly would not have been capable of taking ground it had never had a chance to seize in its march to the sea. The Republic looks to label any government that is not bending to its will from Kispest as an illegitimate, or puppet, or who knows what word they will use tomorrow. At the end of the day, is the Republic ready to face problems at home when the bodies start piling up? For every soldier you put inside of the borders of the former Pannonian state, The Empire will match. We can play a game of numbers if you like, we can fight a war that will not be on our doorstep for the sake of knowing our actions were righteous and just, just tell me how far do you want to go?

Now to the other members of this chamber. The other "Guaranteeing Powers" keep hounding my nation to fall in line, to follow thru with the terrible, terribly structured peace plan that they keep trying to enforce. It would never hold the peace, it had already broken down before the final vote had been cast as it did not have the input nor the support of one of the most important voices in this chamber, the Csengians, and that is the only voice that can say whether a peace will last or not. If they cannot find it acceptable than it will never hold, but maybe thats what several of the "guaranteeing powers" have wanted all along? A reason to stomp out the sick man in their backyard and carve him up as they are exactly doing.

I bring before the entire chamber, and the world, so we cannot have the words manipulated, and it be said we are the war hounds, a rough draft plan for peace in former Pannonia.

Baron Plan

Article 1
.
1A. Recognizing that continued hostilities are a possibility all forces of rebellious forces and those of the Csengian state will cease.
1B. Withdrawing of heavy equipment from the borders to a zone 20km from the defined border (see below).
1C. Disarmament of all Militias in all zones of Former Pannonia.
Article 2.
Defining the borders of the now divided nation that was once former Pannonia. This is a rough proposal with some exchange of territory held in West Zara from Csengia to Eugenia in exchange for road, rail, and an air corridors that will be sovereign territory of Csengia to connect Kispest & East Csengia with its coastal territory.
You must be registered for see images

Article 3. Protecting Powers
3A. The protecting powers shall be The Empire of Tarusa for the Csengia & Two Zaras, Republic of Remion for Eugenia, The Kingdom of Eiffelland for Bourdignie, and the City State of Vrijpoort for Thalgau.
3B. The Protecting Powers duty is to provide security, order, and most of all maintain the ceasefire until a more permanent Peace Treaty between all factions can be achieved.
3C. No protecting power may have a military force in any of the zones, as in the former internationally recognized borders, of the former Pannonian nation greater than that of another Protecting Power.
3D. Each protecting power is responsible for only the areas as the recognized boundaries of the respective parties they are assigned to protect. No protecting power may infringe upon the areas of another powers zone of control.
Article 4.
No party, whether protecting power or faction of former Pannonia may obstruct the movement of civilians between regions for the purpose of relocation. Allowing those of every ethnicity to relocate to another region as they see fit. Those that choose to remain in areas where they potentially will be the minority will be under the protection of the Protecting Powers no matter ethnicity.
Article 5.
This is no more than a ceasefire agreement to be adhered to and abided by until a further and lasting peace agreement is reached between all factions of the former Pannonian Nation. Upon completion of a peace treaty this ceasefire agreement is nullified and the status of the protecting powers is abolished as governments will gain the right and choice to do as they wish within their national boundaries.

This is our first initial proposal and we are of course open to suggestions and ideas, but most of all input from the party that matters most within the conflict and at the center stage, that of the Csengian government.

((OOC: if the map is a little difficult to see, especially the new boundary drawn up in West Zara I apologize it was a rough quick job done up to make for the post))

Hörschelmann was in doubt now. For the first time since he knew the man, the Tarusan Baron was not behaving like an annoying antisocial child on Red Bull. He was inclined to vote in favour, but he wanted to discuss this with Arcangelo Udinese from @Remion and Kirsten Harding from @The Federation first. And also with his government.

He sent a note to Udinese and Harding:

Code:
Dear Mrs. Harding, dear Mr. Udinese,

Could we discuss in private about this proposal from Tarusa?

Best regards,

Roland Hörschelmann

Esteemed Representatives,

This ceasefire fulfills some key points for us, mostly, freedom of access between our regions, and no demands for Csengia to recognize any break away republics at this moment beyond our own free will. We are willing to agree to a ceasefire on these terms, but stress the necessary addition of the Republic of Pojazerná. Additionally, we would like to know the status of the renegades in Bécs... are they also to be provided for by Eiffelland?

Thank you, I yield the floor.

The Region of Becs would also fall under the protectorship of Eiffelland for the duration of the ceasefire until formal agreements are made by your government. We could include a provision for the Republic of Pojazerná, we felt it wasn't necessary however given its recognition by your government but we could make amends to include parts discussing them if desired.

Esteemed colleagues, calling each other "rabid dog" will get us nowhere. Whether we like it or not, all parties have engaged in illegal conduct and since international law has no central enforcing authority, talks of legality are redundant. Indeed, they became redundant the moment countries started recognizing unilateral declarations of independence and enforcing no-fly zones motu proprio et ex parte--unilaterally and of their own accord, that is.
If peace is to be achieved, we must examine each side's grievances and requests and try to accommodate them. This Forum is meant for dialogue, not sabre-rattling. Those who wish to rattle their sabres have already drawn them and seem to be swinging them at each other. Baron Bakhmeteff's plan seem to serve as a solid basis for a temporary end to hostilities, at which point talks can resume.
Pelasgia has supported every peace plan to this point and will continue to do so. The objective of us all should be peace, not trying to barely pass a plan reflecting our interests and then acting as if the plan will enforce itself. Unless, of course, my learned colleagues are prepared to go to war over a plan, at which point the plan itself becomes redundant. Fighting for peace resembles seeking virginity through biological processes which I will not dare mention in this esteemed chamber.
Thank you, I yield the floor.

If this agreement was written with the clear intention of being rejected a priori, it was successful. In no case can we accept the definition of the stolen lands from the Republic of Eugenia as Csengia lands. It would perhaps be appropriate to recall the order of events at this forum. Remion's army is only the third in order of arrival in the Ex-Pannonia, and we have done so with regard to the agreements signed. To sign a ceasefire agreement, which recognizes equal duties and rights to the two members who are responsible for the violation of previous peace agreements, we consider it an offense to the Zaran brothers.

Not to mention Article 3, in the words of the Honorable Demetrio Verdugo, do not be offended by my words: is this perhaps a praise to the imperialism of brute violence? If it isn't, I don't know what it is. Clearly Tarusa hopes to buy time and international compassion by offering a written agreement with his feet, but we are done with the madness.

Don't waste my time with unrealizable proposals.
