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

Esteemed Representatives,

My government believes the conduct of Remion and Eiffelland is unbecoming of this organization. If this body actively supports rebels and renegades with the overt objective of securing imperialist desires of various parties with imperialist pasts, then I see little reason for peace, little reason for discussion, and little reason to be part of the European Forum. The conduct of Remion and Eiffelland threaten to destroy this organization as their bloodthirsty territorial demands for puppet states will chase away any reasonable government.

If the Baron's Plan or some sort of amendment to such a plan with the spirit of it intact is not approved, Csengia will leave this body and refuse to ever recognize anything that may ever come from it.

Thank you, I yield the floor.

Here we have the Csengian state, the key state in the entire conflict ready to agree to the ceasefire at the line of control, the Pelasgian State, and obviously ourselves ready to accept this plan. Yet the Republic of Remion calls it completely unacceptable as a plan.

This plan is far superior to the Verdugo Plan, while well intentioned by those who sponsored it, it failed to gain traction and support from those who it needed the support of most. It was more of a rubberstamp of approval for the aggressive actions of the Republic and its co-conspirators. Why is it unacceptable? It is unacceptable as they cannot accept the situation as it is on the ground. That is the purpose of a ceasefire is to allow the ability to work towards a lasting agreement between all parties.

In the coming days it is rumored we will cease peace in the North, why is it that this can happen in the northern portion of former Pannonia but not the southern? It lies not in the Csengians, but in the East Zarans. They were the only group in outright open rebellion, West Zara never declared itself independent, instead it was invaded and overran by the East Zarans aka the Eugenians who claimed all of the southern reaches of Pannonia for themselves. What emboldened them to do so? The backing of the Republic, which is obviously hell bent on taking every inch it can, even by force.

We will still give this a chance to be worked out and amendments to be discussed and voted upon by the members of the EF. If this must be settled in blood, we will pay the cost to prevent the bullying of Csengia by its neighbor.

Arcangelo Udinese, Remion Representative to the European Forum:

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.
Those are clear words, Hörschelmann thought. Then he took the floor.

Roland Hörschelmann, Eiffellandian Representattive to the European Forum:

Gentlemen, maybe there is room to rewrite article 3 of the Baron plan, in such a way that it is acceptable to both Remion and Csengia? Let's see if we can find that room instead of slinging mud to each other.

We have given a viable plan, one that was accepted by the previous regime under General Horvath. How long must this conflict continue? Horvath was a career military man, he died doing his job serving his country, trying to save it. Not only was our ceasefire plan a viable solution to the ending of the hostilities, there was another offer publicly before Horvath was killed, his grand gesture, for peace.

What has come of these plans? Silence, and rejection by the aggressiveness of the Republic. The West Zarans were never in open rebellion against the Pannonian government under Kovacs, nor under Horvath. They are "claimed" by Eugenia, just as Eugenia "claims" Thalgau, which it has never set foot upon. We are labelled as aggressors, we are the ones hounded by others. All one has to do is look into the comments from the Republics own government and representatives to see that the only way peace will be allowed is if we take a stand, and our forces are prepared to do such a thing, as I believe so are those of the City State of Vrijpoort.

It is not just about "reclaiming what was taken", as if it were so, then why is the region of Thalgau under the threat of invasion by the Republics forces? Eugenian forces have never even had a chance to forcefully take that region, so if it was about enforcing borders that the Republic claims were de-facto, at the signing of that "peace treaty", then Thalgau would not be on the radar. I will say again, the borders that the Republic claims were de-facto, not my own government or some others. What is it about? the Republic of Remion wants to take by force everything that Eugenia claims, and anything less is unacceptable.

We made a valid, fair, proposal that would see minor towns and land that is currently under the control of Csengian and Tarusan troops around the Sankt Viet corridor be ceded as a "line of control" in exchange for corridors that would be part of the "line of control" for Csengia connecting east-west. This is not a permanent proposal, this is a ceasefire agreement to allow those in charge in the civil war, we may as well label it as that now, to negotiate to come to terms for a lasting form of peace. Everyone in this chamber cannot disagree that our proposal is fair, and just, and leaves little room for manipulation by internal or external actors.

A failure here for peace only shows the intentions of those who claim the desire for peace as history will show who was on the right side, and who was in it for blood over some lines on a piece of paper.

With the announcement by the Republic of Remion to use all force necessary after two attempts, both of which are quite generous at attempts to making a lasting peace it shows once and for all the true intentions from the beginning of the crisis of the Republic and its moves to do everything in its power to make a puppet state out of its fellow Zarans.

I have been informed by my government we will be utilizing every means to not only defend the current positions of the Csengian state, but completely expel the Republican Forces from the legal borders of Csengia. It has had several offers not only from my own nation in this body, but from that of the former leader General Horvath, that would have allowed the potential for "democratic" ideals to decide the borders, but it was not acceptable to the Republic. So force shall be met with Force.

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

Esteemed Representatives,

My government is offering Sankt Veit and the surrounding region to Remion Administration in exchange for a permanent cease-fire. In the north, the borders remain as the status quo, but a neutral territory is to be created around the city Hegyvidek so that Remion's Eugenia territory, has land based access to Bourdignie for commerce and the north, and Csengia has land based access to its western territories. This neutral territory would operate as a European Forum Mandate with troops only from Hvidrige and San Jose. Is this offer acceptable?

Thank you, I yield the floor.

Arcangelo Udinese, Remion Representative to the European Forum:

The Tibur government following the cost and benefit analysis is in favor of this ceasefire proposal. We have suspended any offensive in progress pending the withdrawal of the troops of Csengia and Tarusa beyond the stable borders of the agreement. The engagement policy returns to being only if attacked, we invite you to respect the agreement and start the withdrawal of your armys immediately. If the ceasefire is respected, the Republic will be happy to return our captured prisoners to you.

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

Esteemed Representatives,

My government under the General Pista informs me that he has begun his withdraw from the impacted region. I will restate that we have not recognized the breakaway Eugenia, and will still view this region as a core territory of Csengia. It is our belief that it is currently occupied by the Republic of Remion and the Free City of Vrijpoort. As stated before, we will recognize the referendum results in Thalgau. There is no mechanism currently agreed to in the remaining Zaras or Eugenia region. The ceasefire is agreed to though, and so General Pista is open to negotiations between a democratically elected institution in Eugenia. The composition of the current so-called Congress of Gonzaga is not an acceptable partner in peace building. We expect Remion to provide for these elections, and hope for more formal peace talks in the coming months after elections are held. Until then, the Autonomous Regions of the Zaras and Eugenia will be formally by the government in Kispest be seen as Csengan by formality.

Thank you, I yield the floor.

We applaud the fact that Remion and Csengia have reached a cease-fire. Like we recognised Bourdignie and Eugenia, we will also recognise Csengia. However, we will not recognise Csengia's claim over Eugenia. We consider Eugenia a sovereign country, so that means that the embassy of Eugenia in Eiffelland will be responsible for citizens of Eugenia staying in Eiffelland.

This cease-fire agreement is nothing more than one at gunpoint and provides absolutely zero guarantees such as that by Horvath nor that of our own that had allowed for the democratic apparatus that these democracies so push as justification. West Zara was occupied by force by the Eugenians, and as such, the Eugenian claim over West Zara must be not recognized until after a referendum has been held to determine the will of the citizens that live there. West Zara is not pre-dominantly populated by just the Zarans and had sizeable populations of other ethnicities. As such we will hold our ground until a proper ceasefire agreement is reached.

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

Honorable representatives, if it is the will of this international body to call upon Josefino forces to guard a neutral territory surrounding the city of Hegyvidek, then San José shall answer this call. We are pleased to see that progress is finally being made towards a lasting peace despite the continuing rhetoric and actions of certain international actors, and although it was our hope that the Verdugo Peace Plan would be sufficient in this regard, we take comfort in the fact it was at least a meaningful step towards lasting peace.

On that note, though, we do advise that the Verdugo Peace Plan be legally withdrawn so that there are no conflicting peace plans or mandates from the European Forum, and ensure the de facto situation matches the de jure as well.

I yield the floor.

Arcangelo Udinese, Remion Representative to the European Forum:

The man stood up after consulting some paper reports from his own bag holders. "Ladies and gentlemen, I have received the news that the forces of Tarusa, shielding themselves with the ceasefire agreement signing here, have conducted an offensive against the naval forces, the forces stationed in the port of Sant Elia, known as San Lucia, and finally attacked some aircraft in flight of the Republic of Eugenia. The cowardly act resulted in the sinking of a further two ships, killing an Eugenio jet, while their land offensive was rejected and in the our counter-offensive we captured several Tarusi soldiers.

The attack by Tarusa's forces was conducted from territories officially controlled by the Csgenia government, tarusan army use their infrastructure to target our forces intent on complying with agreements signed here. Yet another demonstration of Tarusa's disinterest in any form of peace agreement. They will continue to use them as a paper to light the fire on which we sit waiting for their famous peace.

In order to protect the safety of our operators and soldiers in the area, we can only impose a naval blockade on all territorial waters of Csgenia, infested with Tarusan submarines, which are conducting an act of war in violation of the signed ceasefire agreements.

Mr Roland Hörschelmann, Eifelland must have the courage to take the difficult decision and deploy its forces on the border agreed in the latest ceasefire agreement. Only in this way can further bloodshed be stopped. The inhuman acts committed by the men of Tarusa in East Zara are no longer a secret."

The Empire never agreed to this ceasefire, as such whatever agreement you may have had with the Csengian field command does not enforce any obligations upon the Empire with which to abide. Even as such, the ceasefire was only dedicating to a withdraw of the Csengian military from the field back to pre-determined positions, a ceasefire is not a peace treaty, it is simply an agreement between two parties to cease combat operations by their respective forces against each other. The Empire never agreed, nor signed onto such an agreement, and de-facto what our forces have done is carried on the fight that was brought onto us by the Republic.

It is not our problem the Republic did not have the foresight to reach an agreement that would be acceptable to our nation, I said clearly in these halls, that if the Republic attacked that we would send body bags home. I think it is safe to say that my nations armed forces are doing quite the job at keeping our promise, and will keep doing so. The Republic continues to push the boundaries, it keeps looking to extend this conflict as now it has moved its blockade to the ports of Csengia itself after it has "taken the city" of Sankt Viet that our forces withdrew from. Where will the Republic draw the line, first it was simply attempting to "re-take" the lands Eugenia had "lost" and now that the military goal has been accomplished what have they chosen to do? Attempt and force more upon the Csengian nation.

I will make it clear, this blockade will not stand. We will put the Republican Navy or Nation on its knees if the aggressive actions of the Republic are not checked by its fellow democratic states.

Roland Hörschelmann whispered to his aide: "This is the first time in my life that I am not happy about somebody keeping his promises."

Then he switched on his microphone: "I will notify my government about this discussion."

Nevena Vladimirovic, Serbovian Representative to the European Forum

Subsequent to the formation of a new government cabinet in my country, I have been given the mandate to convey the following will of our administration to the European Forum.

The Federal State of Serbovia expresses its deep concern and dismay over the turn of these events and the apparent escalation of the Pannonian conflict. The desire of our government is for peace and stability to return to these former Pannonian territories. I say former in recognition of this new reality that the former state of Bajororzsag has effectively collapsed. In addition, we naturally look to safeguard the rights and safety of our ethnic Serbovic brothers and sisters in the territories of these various successor states.

In our view, the previous proposal of peace put forward by the Tarusan government was reasonable and we are deeply saddened that it now seems to have collapsed due to the political brinkmanship of the Republic of Remion in this affair. Furthermore, the Federal State of Serbovia condemns the Remionese blockade as a violation of the principle of freedom of navigation, and calls upon Remion to lift this blockade.
