- Athens, Greece
The early summer sun beaconed over the Pelasgian capital of Nymphaion, scalding the tarmac on Ioannis Notaras International Airport. The Federal City's gateway to the world, named after the last elected President of the Pelasgian Union, who had been assassinated in a power struggle that marked Pelasgian history forever, was relatively crowded by Himyari standards, though it was far from the central hub of travel that Propontis International Airport "Attalus the Great" was. Still, on this morrow, the VIP section of the airport was closed off and more closely guarded than the entirety of Propontis Airport.
As a jet landed on the tarmac, military bands and lines of ceremonial guards prepared to welcome Dr. Norbert Schmelzer, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of @Eiffelland . At their very head was Panagiotis Kassiopoulos, the Foreign Minister of the United Pelasgian Republics, who awaited before an elegant all-black sedan that was to carry the two men to the building of Ministry of Foreign Affairs., right at the heart of the Federal Government District.
It was there that the two men would be allowed to discuss the future of relations between Eiffelland and Pelasgia, two historic allies who had drifted apart in recent years due political reasons. As the jet came to a halt and a ladder was attached to it, Panagiotis started to greet his colleague.
"Dr. Schmelzer," he said, holding out his hand. "Welcome to Pelasgia. I hope that your flight was pleasant?"
