National ~ Palmira, San Jose: President José Constanza 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 Constanza 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 Archipelagic Collectivist Republic of San Jose to assist in the Josefino 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 Constanza accepted Ostmarker offers to assist in fulfilling his pledge and ordered that the Ostmarker urban planners be housed in San Jose free of charge and their every need met while they reside in our great archipelago. President Constanza 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 Josefino a roof over their heads in accordance with Collectivist ideals of Peace, Prosperity, and Progress." In an Official Statement in response to the President's request, the Collectivist Congress 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 José Constanza expressed his strong sympathies for the separatist movements, highlighting parallels between their struggles and Josefino rebellious movements throughout the 1800s that eventually achieved independence. There is speculation that the Archipelagic Collectivist Republic may join The Federation in recognizing the sovereignty of these separatist movements, but this cannot be confirmed at this time.

National ~ Palmira, San Jose: The Archipelagic Collectivist Republic of San Jose officially recognized the breakaway Republics of Bourdignie and Eugenia in the midst of the increasingly chaotic crisis in @Bajorország, the Josefino Foreign Minister stating that San Jose 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." San Jose is the second nation to recognize the independence of the separatist republics after the Federation of Westernesse, and President José Constanza 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 Constanza in his efforts to eradicate homelessness in San Jose, the Natalian governmental aid organization Himyari Sun offered its support to the people of San Jose. 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 Constanza declared the generosity of the Natalians "shall not be forgotten by the people of San Jose, and... [they] shall forever be known as staunch allies of #Collectivism, marching with us towards Peace, Prosperity, and Progress." Both the Natalian and Ostmarker aid teams are expected to arrive soon in Palmyra and work closely with the Collectivist Congress in their efforts to craft a building program for housing and provide further advice and direct assistance.

National ~ Palmira, San Jose: Preparations are underway for an anticipated state visit over the weekend by President Pedro Herrera Rasgado of the Free State of Corrientes to Palmira, San Jose, in an effort "to further enhance the trade and cooperation between our brotherly peoples and nations" per the Correntine External Affairs Minister Mateo Restrepo. President José Constanza has gladly accepted the request to visit our beautiful capital, and is "eager to greet his brother President with open arms in the Presidential Palace of Palmira." A reciprocal state visit by President Constanza to Callao and a journey up the Rio Catatungo in Corrientes is also being planned for next weekend.

International ~ Messeta Verde, @Gran-Occidentia and @Corrientes: A diplomatic effort headed by President Constanza is underway to mediate between San Jose's brotherly nations of Corrientes and the People's State of Gran-Occidentia over increased tensions in the Messeta Verde territory, which has seen military buildup after a tense standoff between citizens of both Occidental nations, though no deaths were reported. Foreign Minister Gabriel Morales, on behalf of President José Constanza, implored both nations to dial back tensions, stating, "Brothers fight, it is a fact of life that there shall be disputes within a family, be it of individuals or of nations, but that does not stop the brothers from loving each other and defending each other from outside forces that would wish harm upon the family as a whole." Progress has already been made as Gran-Occidentian Foreign Minister Francisco de Rosas announced that Gran-Occidentia was, "for the sake of stability and peace within the wider Occidentian region we are willing to reduce the current border garrison provided our Correntine counterparts do likewise in the spirit of peaceful coexistence," and Caudillo Ignacio Ramon-Reyes' willingness to accept President Constanza's offer to meet with his Correntine counterpart in Palmira for a diplomatic summit to discuss resolving the question of the Messeta Verde region. President Constanza subsequently praised Gran-Occidentia for their wisdom in choosing peace over war, and urged his counterpart in Corrientes to accept the offer of a diplomatic summit.


International ~ Iriy @Hradreych: An outburst of misguided, drunken superstition occurred in Iriy, Hradreych by the White Wolves patriotic sporting association, who vented their frustrations over San Jose's refusal to cower in the face of Rus threats and saber-rattling by assembling various beach-related knickknacks and San Jose-branded paraphernalia in a large pile on the local football pitch and setting it on fire. In their backwards superstitious beliefs, the concept was, per the Nove Stonse, "to invoke the Navka, spirits of dead girls which are a staple of schoolgirl's horror stories, to curse San Jose" and drag its people to hell. President José Constanza, when asked to comment on the story, replied, "Clearly they were attempting to emulate certain Josefinos and Josefinas in cocktail trips of rum, coffee, and marijuana, but all the rum they had assembled was of poor quality and they did not have the other ingredients. As such, it was a bad trip resulting in superstitious hooliganism, nothing more. I hope their collective hangover and property damage was worth it." The Ministry of Foreign Affairs assured the Archipelagic Times that they had no intention of changing their diplomatic stance towards the Bourdignie Confederation despite this apparent curse.

National ~ Palmira, San Jose: Talks between President José Constanza and his Cabinet with President Pedro Herrera Rasgado, the beautiful first lady Señora Octavia Herrera and their delegation representing @Corrientes has achieved substantial success. Details from the official release by the Office of His Excellency, President Constanza indicate that a joint relaxation of tarrifs between San Jose and Corrientes was agreed upon, along with the complete elimination of visas for travel between the two countries. In addition, it was agreed to begin an exchange program between the most prestigious universities of the two Tiburan Occidentian nations, and announce the establishment of a Joint Research Project by medical experts from both countries into more extensive treatment with and therapeutic application of marijuana and hallucinogenic drugs for physical and mental illness. President Constanza is flying out to Callao in Corrientes today, heading a Josefino delegation including the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Defense, to discuss the potential of founding a regional pact among like-minded Tiburan Occidentian nations such as @Gran-Occidentia and @Cayabocan and extending military cooperation between San Jose and Corrientes specifically. President Constanza has expressed confidence that "there shall be a concrete Hermandad of Tiburan Occidentian nations established by the end of the year, which will thwart any nefarious plans by the Global Exploitation Conspiracy to return and undermine our noble peoples and extract our vast regional wealth."

International ~ Frescania, European Forum: A peace plan crafted by the Josefino Representative to the European Forum, Demetrio Verdugo, is on the brink of passing, with 75% in favor and 25% against the plan thus far. Some provisions in the plan include official recognition of the independence of the Bourdignie Confederation and the Republic of Eugenia by the European Federation in what was once @Bajorország and the establishment of a Council of Guaranteeing Powers amongst neighboring and notable nations to maintain peace between the peoples of Pannonia. President José Constanza praised the efforts of Representative Verdugo, calling his efforts "a testament to the peace-loving desire of Tiburan Occidentian nations. Similarly to the Correntino Representative Cristian Galán Correa, now it is we in the New World who must step in and provide blueprints for the violent and bickering Old World to follow, helping them extract themselves from the Global Exploitation Conspiracy." It is expected that President Constanza will present Representative Verdugo a medal for his efforts to bring peace to Pannonia following the expected passing of the plan in the European Forum.

International ~ Callao, Corrientes: The 2021 Eucalyptus Cup is underway, as the six groups of twenty-four international football clubs total have been announced. San Jose has submitted four teams to the tournament: FC Ciudad de Rio Dorado, FC Ciudad del Puerto Café, FC Isla de Sirenia, and the favorites of the San Jose submission, FC Isla de las Palmas. President José Constanza wished the Josefino football clubs the best of luck in the upcoming tournament, and urged them to "make every Josefino, man or woman, adult or child, casual or hardcore fan, proud to call themselves Josefino!"

International ~ Wien, Ostmark: President José Constanza, before his diplomatic trip to Callao, Corrientes, also visited Wien, @Ostmark after being invited by Chancellor Walter Eidman to observe celebrations surrounding the 60th anniversary of the Ostmarker Republic. President Constanza was overheard congratulating Chancellor Eidman on behalf of San Jose, calling Ostmark "a beacon of resilience and an inspiration for all in Gallo-Germania."
