    CEYLON ASSEMBLY APPROVES AIRPORT EXPANSION
    PMO: CAN'T DO BUSINESS WITH UNSTABLE REGIMES; VISA ON ARRIVAL REVOKED?; UKZ TO SUE?


    The inaugural session of the Ceylon assembly kicked off this Monday with the swearing in of the new Chief Minister of Ceylon- R. Wickremesinghe of the Ceylon People's Army. The first order of business for the House was the modification of the flag of Ceylon in order to give the new Commonwealth Territory a unique identity.

    After this, the assembly discussed the issue of the loss of the port for trade. The assembly overwhelmingly voted in favour to expand the existing Colombo airport. The Bandaranaike International airport is the only airport in Ceylon and it caters to both domestic, international, cargo and military flights. This means that the airport is very overworked.
    It has only a limited number of airlines flying out of it. Crown Air- The UKZ National Carrier and Air India- The South UKZ private carrier.

    The Bill seeks to open up more runways and increase airport capacity and hangar capacity to facilitate cargo airlines and more passanger carriers in the airport. This move has been pushed by the Viceroy who was strongly opposed to depending on the Arveyrean province for trade but whose hands were tied till the Assembly was elected.


    The Viceroy was angry with the centre for depending on the Arveyrean province for a trade port. He claimed that "The Prime Minister forced me to agree to the terms of the port lease deal. While i do agree that we need a port i could not help but be suspicsious of the Arveyreans. Largely because they seem to be a puppet nation controlled by Urbem Sol and whose government is easily swayed by popular rhetoric. Today i am not angry with the Arveyreans, i did not expect anything much from them. I am disappointed with the central government who failed to see the instability and risk in depending on the Arveyreans"

    The PMO released a statement on the developments.
    "The UKZ stands shocked and disappointed with the decision of the Arveyrean senate to revoke our acess to the port. We hope that in the future the government of Arveyres will reconsider and change their decision and try and give Zack-Arveyrean relations a chance. Ceylon will not suffer. The port deal was merely a back up. The Colombo Airport and the interim Royal Air Force base on the outsskirts of Colombo are sufficient for trade. the whole idea behind the request for a port was to try and grow relations with Arveyres. Now that our attempts have failed we hope that the Arveyreans will extend their hands for friendship in the future. Till then the UKZ will find it very difficult to do business with Arveyres as they have proved to be untrustworthy businesss partners and outright disrespectful when it comes to business deals and agreements. We are also examining the lagality of the revocation, and might take Arveyres to the ICJ for breaking in business deal and require compensation from the Arveyrean government for the same."

    the Minister for External Affairs said that she was very disappointed in the behaviour of Arveyres and this decision "gives the impression that Arveyres is not truly independent but is being secretley controlled by Urbem Sol, we feel sorry for them. We have no plans on cancelling the Visa on Arrival deal for all Arveyrean tourists, whether they be on travel for pleasure or for business. We are not revoking this because we made a deal with Arveyres and we will stick to the deal."

    NZDF Humiliates Self - NZS Rociante Limping Home



    Valiant-class destroyer NZS Rociante (pictured above carrying out a slalom manouverability test) has suffered a serious engine failure while sailing home with the rest of her Gamma-6 Battlegroup from Ireland. The Rociante is equipped with the latest in propulsion systems, a version of the Chrysler Heavy Industies Twin Vortex Gas-Electric Marine Drive (TVMD). The revolutionary Gas-Electric Turbine systems run at a previously unthinkable 52% thermal efficiency, outpacing the industry standard 30-40%. As a result of the resultant high power output and innovative propellor and drivetrain design have allowed the Rociante and her similarly spec'd Gamma-6 battlegroup to be the fastest mobile naval fleet on the planet. The NZDF today released however that the Rociante has suffered a catestrophic engine failure and is now undertaking the remaining 10,500km journey at a drastically reduced speed in "limp home" mode. It is understood that the rest of Gamma-6 have been instructed to carry out the remainder of their journey at full steam ahead with the Rociante to drag herself into dock at the Naval Base in Drakenburg under her own steam. NZDF Engineering Support Vessel NZS Marlboro has left port in Greymouth and is expected to rendevouz with the Rociante and assist in the return trip. 

    The failure will come as a humiliation to the NZDF and Chrysler Heavy Industries particularily in the face of mounting Eurasian aggression, proving that while the NZDF boasts arguably the most technologically innovative and technologically advanced fleet in the world, it's lack of time testing and experience is definitely showing. The NZDF was not willing to comment any further on the Rociante incident at this time, but we were able to get in contact with Chrysler Heavy Industries who, while also tight lipped, did confirm that at this time they believe the engine failure to have been a "Catestrophic Thermal Breakdown". Hinting that while the the innovative new propulsion system is able to deliver on power output, the high strain on it's components is resulting in failures under prolonged maximal load, with the Rociante having just done in excess of 20,000km at non stop full throttle on her return trip in addition to her trip there averaging 80% throttle. The NZDF has not officially recalled any of her similarily retrofitted destroyers for inspection or repair, probably due to the current political situation meaning the Social Democracy cannot spare to dry dock any of her fleet. However it is likely that some on sea repairs or upgrades will be made once the Rociante is assessed.

    City of Yell Recognised by Arveyres
    Long a de facto independent state completely surrounded by the Arveyres capital Calabasas, the City of Yell- the world's smallest country at only 192 acres- has achieved its first step in gaining international recognition.

    Yellasians have become a global diaspora group following multiple revolutions and the colonisation of the Island of Yell by largely Eurasian settlers, and now they finally have a state. Home to a large number of Yellasian immigrants historically and currently, and hosting a distinct Yellasian-Arveyres creole community, the City of Yell became a de facto independent state when it was gifted to Yellasians by the Queen of Arveyres. The country has held its own elections, issued its own passports, and maintained its own foreign policy. Fearing Eurasian backlash, the House of Yell did not push for official recognition until recently. The country is currently governed by the "Internationalist" coalition- a group that seeks to maintain the status quo, and to develop the Yellasian nation as a global group not tied to land and participating in humanitarian causes. However, in recent years, the "Nationalist" coalition, which seeks to re-establish Yellasian independence on the homeland, has become more prevalent.

    Despite its small size, the country is influential, hosting a large tourist industry, a prestigious university, and a government that brings revenue and acts on the behalf of thousands of Yellasians abroad. It is currently seeking recognition and diplomatic relations with other nations.

    City of Yell Opens Official Diplomatic Channels With Social Democracy


    The City of Yell and the Social Democracy of New-Zealand have officially opened diplomatic channels today, with a purposely renovated building in the Consular Wing of the Capitol Estate in Grand Haven. Capitol Estate is the sprawling Federal Government land situated around Capitol Hill in central Grand Haven, and hosts the head embassies of all nations with official relations with NZ, as well as Parliament building and it's associated department headquarters. Capitol Estate is also home to the official Presidential Residence (The Lodge) and is attached to Haven Joint Operations Complex (the operational headquarters of the NZDF) which is for most part a sprawling underground bunker complex which tunnels through via rail and service roads to the Haven Central Military Fortress, Air Base and Naval Docks. 

    The Yellasian Embassy has been financed and renovated by New-Zealand, and is granted handed over to the Yellasian government on an indefinite lease for as long as official diplomatic ties remain. Maintenance, furnishing and dedicated security however is to be handled by the Yellasian Consulate. General Security will be provided by the NZDF, who have jurisdiction over the defence and security of Capitol Estate. As such protection is provided by NZDF MP's and not the New-Zealand Police Force.


    It is understood that the Social Democracy of New-Zealand has also been granted a consular office in return in the City of Yell. It is expected to be open and operational by the end o the week.

    NEW TARAJAN RECOGNIZES CITY OF YELL
    The Kingdom offers to open full diplomatic relations


    Palace Van Geldern, Astana, seat of the Royal Landsraad.

    Astana.
    During his weekly speech to the Diet and the Landsraad, Prime Minister De Witte-Beulen announced that New Tarajan will officially recognize the new Yellasian independent city-state.
    "It is with relief that we heard that the government of the City of Yell is seeking official recognition by the International Community. Relief, because this means that the Yellasians are going one step further toward the road for a new area for their nation; relief, because this way, through official diplomacy, the status of Yellasians all around the world will find a better and more complete definition to their own benefit."
    "New Tarajan is glad to welcome to the City of Yell inside the International Community, hoping to establish solid relations between the Tarajani and Yellasian people."
    Particularly, the Prime Minister announced that the Kingdom is already working toward the opening of a full-fledged embassy in Yell, while at the same time an official invitation has been extended to the Yellasian government to send an ambassador to Astana, who will be received and accredited by His Royal Majesty the King.
    The Prime Minister also hinted at the possibility to immediately start negotiations between New Tarajan and Yell: "We should begin soon to work closely with the government of the City of Yell" he said "In order to reach agreements toward many important issues, including the status of Yellasian citizens in New Tarajan, visa and travel arrangements, economic relations, cultural interchange. Regarding all these issues, the Kingdom is ready to open its arms to the Yellasians."

    TARAJANI COURT DECISION “GLADLY WELCOMED” IN MOREA
    Sultana Aikaterini Thanks Court of Seven for Ordering Repeal of Religious Law

    Nafplio, Morea: After days of consideration, Sultana Aikaterini II Baumbach-Kallergis has released an official statement thanking the Court of the Seven in the Federal Aristocratic Kingdom of New Tarajan for its decision to overturn the recently-passed legislation banning government officials from proselytizing or utilizing religious arguments in their official duties. This comes after months of tension between New Tarajan and Morea due in small part to this law, which prompted a meeting between the late Sultan Ioannis IX Kallergis and King Friederick Wilhelm of New Tarajan to clear the air between the two nations that were otherwise pledged to one another as firm allies. While Sultan Ioannis reported that he had been satisfied as to the intention and utilization of this legislation, Achaians throughout Morea have remained dissatisfied with the limits of the law on their fellow Christians in New Tarajan. Today, Sultana Aikaterini expressed her support for that opinion.

    “We are grateful that good sense and the light of Heaven have prevailed over the earlier dark counsels among the Tarajani,” the Sultana said from her residence in Nafplio. “Though we have no doubt that our word in this matter is less welcome than others’, we nonetheless salute the justices of the Court of the Seven, who have seen the folly of this legislation and have motioned to strike it down. We furthermore thank the diligence of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Aloia, whose legal action has brought this result. The Lord has shown today, as He does every day, that His interest in the welfare of His people will never falter.”

    However, Sultana Aikaterini took the opportunity to reaffirm Morean-Tarajani friendship, and to acknowledge that her father, Sultan Ioannis, had already expressed his acquiescence to the same laws now under threat by the ruling of the Court of the Seven. “Whether or not His Majesty King Friederick Wilhelm sees fit to repeal this legislation, the Sultanate and the Kingdom stand together in friendship,” the Sultana said. “Our Royal Father spoke rightly when he said that our differences could not be allowed to fully divide us. This law was proposed as an attack against the Christian people, but by the wisdom of His Majesty the King and Prime Minister [Ulrich De] Witte-Beulen it was tempered and remade, and despite our father’s misgivings he found it palatable enough when discussing the matter at the Palace Von Sondenburg-Sorenberg. We are pleased to see this law in its death throes, but we are nonetheless aware that Christians, too, could find some comfort in its clauses. We ask the people of New Tarajan, Christians and Ajani, ministers and commoners, and our brothers abroad in the Duchy of Coervorden to be ever vigilant in preserving the rights of all people to worship as they will, and to speak of their worship to whom they will.”

    Princes Chrysanthos and Dimosthenis Kallergis, respectively the Dukes of Creil and Nagele under King Friederick Wilhelm, are directly impacted by the decision to repeal this law, which would have prevented them from advocating Christian worship while undertaking official duties as Dukes of New Tarajan. While the two are already working to create havens for Tarajani Christians fearing persecution, they will now have a greater leeway in defending the interests of Christianity and the Achaian Church.

    OIL RIG EXPLODES OFF ARVEYRAN COAST

    The Sunset Tango engulfed in flames.




    Fuerteventura, Marquette -- An oil rig owned by the Marquetien oil company, MarPeC, has exploded some two hundred miles off the eastern coast of Arveyres, and has begun leaking oil into the surrounding waters at an alarming rate. Coastal authorities from neighboring countries wasted no time to arrive at the scene and combat the massive fire that has engulfed the entire platform, but it may be some time before maintenance crews are able to get close enough to seal the leak. It is still unknown what the cause of the explosion was, and MarPeC CEO Jovão Copyarto neglected to speculate publicly at this time.

    In an emergency press conference held an hour after news of the explosion first reached Besançon, Copyarto stressed the importance MarPeC places on spills, and that the company would be immediately deploying every resource it has available to stop the leak, carry out investigations regarding the cause, and take every possible measure to lessen the environmental impact in the region. Copyarto has also specified that fingers should not be pointed until extensive investigations have been carried out. This is the first such major incident MarPeC has experienced in its more than 100-year history. Owned by the Vedoys family, who currently holds the throne of Marquette, MarPeC is known as one of the most reliable and cautious oil corporations in the world, so a catastrophe of this magnitude comes as a surprise to many who rely on the company for its oil.

    It appears as though the environmental impact of the spill will indeed be significant enough to reach crisis levels, in which case King Frédéric IV has said he is prepared to take all actions necessary to rectify the situation.

    It is still unknown how many casualties have been sustained.

    MONSOON SESSION 2017
    Government U-Turn on OMNI Policy


    After the Eurasian threat of agression the nation saw the benefit of the OMNI and polls suggested that popularity of the Z-Exit bill among the public have hit an all time low. This is has emboldened the opposition NDA coalition which has forced the government to withdraw the Z-Exit Bill. Even the Liberal Party which gives support to the ZNC government from the outside has been turned away from its neutral policy on Z-exit with its leader claiming that, 'The OMNI gives us a chance to remain secure and divert our attention to more importang things like education, welfare and eradicating poverty. The OMNI is our insurance to development'. He has however said that the OMNI must consider reform and revitilisation for the benefit of all members.

    Ever since the Monsoon Session started the Foreign Minister and Prime Minister has promised a clarification on the Z-Exit policy now held by the government.
    Today afternoon the foriegn minister issued a statement in parliament regarding the same.

    "The OMNI has helped the UKZ develop its military arsenal and protected our sovreignity on many instances. This is something that our government never denied, we can also not deny that the OMNI has been a true friend and partner of the UKZ.
    In the recent threat of aggression the UKZ met with the challenge head on and it indeed had the backing of the OMNI. Therefore, it does not seem wise to exit the OMNI at this stage. My ministry will withdraw the bill from the upper house.
    We will however continuet to talk with our fellow OMNI members in order to make the OMNI more effecient and a better oiled machine to meet with any threat and work towards international peace and security."


    This statement was met with large applause.

    This move comes at a great time and just might work to mend the strained relations between Astana and Cair Paravel which arose due to the aftermaath of the Irish War and will also predictably bring about a large sigh of relief across the globe of OMNI allies.

    Parliament is also set to discuss the scheduling for the referendums in Zack Controlled Ireland and the rescue and relief efforts in Lacostasia.

    ZACK CATHOLICS HOLD RALLY OUTSIDE TARAJANI EMBASSY


    The Pan-UKZ Catholic Association held a peaceful protest outside the New Tarajan embassy in Cair Paravel and outside the Tarjani Consulates in Houston, Buckinghama and Pombay. While the local police were present to make sure things do not get out of hand they did not disperse the demonstrators.

    Protestors waved crosses and slogans demanding Human Rights and Freedom of Religion and waved the Tarajani and Vatican Flags. They also sang a number of gospel songs

    The Minister of State for Home Affairs said "we did not disperse the protestors in the interest of democracy, they had taken the necessary permits of the rally and they were not causing inconvience or harm. we made sure that they were not very close to the embassies and conssulates and had plans in place should things go out of hand. Our government policy on the contreversial Tarajani law is clear, we are nuetral and only hope that the winner is human rights, Tarajan knows what is best for it, not the UKZ, not Morea not any nation. This is New Tarajan's decision to make."

    While there are several religious groups across the nation, Roman Catholics are the dominant religious group. The nation's official religion is Catholicism even though the UKZ mainatains secular laws.

    The bill when it was passed in New Tarajan caused quite an uproar in smaller catholic circles in the UKZ and to a certain extent even the Hindu community, but due to large media apathy to it the people were not that fired up. Now that the law has reached a climatic point, media interest has peaked and so has that of the Zack Catholic.

    CRISIS IN ARVEYRES, OIL NEARING SHORES OF ARVEYRES AND EURASIA



    A view of the Sunset Tango, a Marquetien-owned oil rig in the Sea of Latia

    ALBACETE, EXTREMADURA == Crisis has erupted in the Sea of Latia, following the explosion of a Marquetien-owned oil rig, the Sunset Tango, which was stationed in the lower Sea of Latia in the location of Arveyran oil reserves that were on lease to the MarPeC. This comes as a shock to many Arveyran oil investors as MarPeC has been a long-time trustworthy oil company that is careful in handling its practice. As the pipe leaking crude oil into the Sea of Latia has yet to be repaired, at an alarming rate, hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil area gathering in the southern sea, potentially threatening the fisheries off of the coast of Cordoba.
    Former Arveyran Prime Minister, Giancarlo Galliano who served from 2012 to 2016 as a member of the Green Party and of Marquetien ethnicity has openly attributed the beginning of this crisis with the negligence and greed of the Marquetien political system, which favors nobility and opulence over the well-being of the earth and sea. Galliano, who has returned to the Arveyran Senate as a representative from Valencia has opened on the Senate floor a call for a Ministerial and Senatorial re-election, which with the current situation, may see a return of the Green Party to power, and the early termination of the tenure of incumbent Christian Prime Minister Victoria Choi.

    PM RESPONDS TO UKZ "THREAT" OF ICJ LITIGATION

    As Prime Minister Choi is overseas handling business in the Far Western Provinces, this move for elections comes at a poor time for her. Choi, currently concerned with upholding secure borders in the Far West, has come under fire for her lack of response to an earlier threat by the UKZ of bringing Arveyres to the International Court of Justice over the termination of the lease of the port in southern Gyeonggi. Choi responded with to the empty threat by saying "we'd like to see you try-- there is no operational international government, and your claim to any compensation would be useless".
    The comments by the Prime Minister were received well by the Arveyran public of the Far West, who also recently took offense to the UKZ claims of the Arveyran Government being an "unstable regime". She further said in her speech that "it seems awfully hypocritical of you to call a peaceful nation who has seen no military conflict since the 1940s, but your nation has had countless terror attacks in the past year, and you have taken captive and completely destroyed an entire government in the eyes of imperialism".

    RENOVATIONS IN CAPITAL CITY NEAR CITY OF YELL

    Following the formal international diplomatic recognition of the City of Yell, the local administration of the Palais Parish of the capital city of Arveyres, Calabasas, viewed it suitable to give a renovation to the diplomatic quarter of the Parish. In the area of the Parish that houses the diplomatic missions and embassies of foreign nations, a A£15,000,000 budget has been allotted to repave the Plaza da Vista, also known in English as Avenue of the Diplomat, and have a general overhaul on the nature and aesthetics of the area. Planting of cherry trees imported from Gyeongsang is also expected to take place soon with a large ceremony to commemorate the anniversary of the Unification of the Naju Kingdoms into Arveyres.

    East Ireland Votes To Join Social Democracy



    The votes are officially in, with the Unionists scoring a decisive victory against the opposing Royalists in the East Ireland Induction Referendum. The binding referendum came back with a 68-29-3 (For, Against, Abstain) split, with a voter turn out of 83%. As such, East Ireland is hereforth officially inducted as a Special Administration Zone (Imperial Territory) of the Social Democracy of New-Zealand as of midnight (Grand Haven Time). The NZDF has dedicated Battlegroup Beta-6 to the immediate defence of the East Irish Special Administration Zone, with the military bases, ports, equipment and other resources under the control of East Ireland prior to the fall of the Irish Administration transferring over to the NZDF. We are yet to see the Eurasian response to this election result, as the Empire has already pledged an ultimatum of war to the Social Democracy should she not leave East Ireland.

    THE COMMITTEE ON ZACK IRELAND
    WALES TO HEAD TO POLLS

    Flag of Zack Ireland

    The parliament has suggested the creation of the Zack Ireland Committee. This body will oversee the transfer of power from the Zack government to the Irish People.
    it consists of the Prime Minister of UKZ, Viceroy of New Ireland, Viceroy of Free Britain and the Royals of Ireland. It will be chaired by the Governor General of Cair Paravel.

    This committee is set to have its first meeting next week where the dates for the referendums will be decided and the mode of transfer of power will be discussed.

    As parliament was deeply divided on the future of Zack Ireland with the NDA Coalition calling for inclusion with UKZ, the Liberals calling for the establishment of a united Ireland as it was before the war and the ZNC pushing for the two nation solution- New Ireland and Free Britain.
    In order to remove party bias and give the people of Ireland a voice in their decision the Lok Sabha took this decison to establish an independent Committee.

    Meanwhile, the Election Commission has declared that Party Registrations for Wales is now open and the newly inducted Commonwealth Terriitory will elect its Legislative Assembly in August and have House of Representative (Lok Sabha) elections mid July.

    COMMONWEALTH MEMBERS TO GET SEATS IN UPPER HOUSE


    A discussion in the upper house has suggested giving non-Zack commonwealth member nations a seat in the upper house of parliament- The Commonwealth Council or Rajya Sabha.
    The bill proposed by 5 time permanent representative of New Telmar to the Commonwealth Association proposed allowing nations that were now independent of the Zack Crown representation in the upper house of Zack Parliament. If this passes and manages to gain approval of the lower house, Sdudeti Karabak, North Ajania, Drakenburg (New-Zealand), East Ireland, New Ireland, Free Britain and New Viscos will all gain a seat in the upper house.

    The MP said that he was pushing for this as it "Gives a signal that the UKZ is an open and accepting nation and that it gives respect and importance to all its Commonwealth Members. We value our partnership with these nations." he does admit thouugh that 7 new votes could prove to be a swing vote in several legistlative business and that the fine print will need to be modifed.

    Several members have suggested that these nations get non-voting seats or one united vote or bar these members from voting on certain legistlation.

    Meanwhile the Election Commission has revealed that they are examining if Commonwealth Association citizens who have been liviing in the UKZ should get a chance to vote in the local and general elections held in the UKZ.
    The liberal party is pushing for this idea claiming that "The government has to take care of all people living within the UKZ, so all people should have a say in its election."

    NEW TARAJAN ON IRELAND'S FUTURE
    Sdudeti-Karabak and North Ajania to stay in the Commonwealth, pending Diets approval

    Astana.
    With the dust finally setting, a direction is emerging for Ireland's future, after the quick war which followed Irish invasion of Wales.
    After the news of East Ireland voting for joining the Social-Democracy, and of the UKZ to set up a special committee to manage the transfer of power from Zack occupation forces to the Irish, the Tarajani government announced its official position. It did so through a press conference of Deputy Prime Minister (and former Prime Minister) Bernhard Van Aardenne-Gliefen, held at the Palace of Government: "The news coming from Ireland and from the UKZ have been gladly received by His Majesty's Government" he said "The decision of the East Irish people to join the Social-Democracy, taken by a referendum carefully overseen by our observers, will be respected by us, and we expect the same from the rest of the International Community."
    Van Aardenne-Gliefen also stated that "the decision of the Zack parliament to set up a special committee including also the Irish Royals is a very good sign. We fully approve such a decision, and we hope the Zack government will put it forward."


    Astana New District, NT.

    This situation probably also contributed to a further development about the position of Sdudeti-Karabak and North Ajania inside the Zack Commonwealth.
    From Vieneskel, where the Royal House Van Vinkel and House Vergara both convened to discuss the future of the two countries, a spokesperson of the Royal House informed that "after much deliberation, it has been decided that the Grand Ducal House of Van Vinkel-Karabak and the Princely House of Van Vinkel-Noorden will not press for Sdudeti-Karabak and North Ajania to leave the Zack Commonwealth."
    The spokesperson specified that "although under the laws of both countries, an official decision can only be taken after a consultation of the respective Diets, we expect these consultations to go smoothly and without further surprises."
    Although, as admitted by the spokesperson itself, the decision was taken "after due consideration for the opposition expressed by House Vergara", which eventually asked for the two countries to leave the Commonwealth as a protest for the Zack occupation of Ireland "It is the belief of House Van Vinkel that, through keeping their membership, Sdudeti-Karabak and North Ajania could contribute to the betterment of the Irish position, and to actively mediate between House Vergara, and thus Arveyres, and the UKZ, both fundamental partners and allies of the Kingdom."
    Although not directly mentioned during the announcement, it is clear that also other considerations contributed to the decision, particularly ethnic and political ones (it shall be remembered that Sdudeti-Karabak and North Ajania both have strong historical and ethnic ties with the UKZ, and which particularly the former suffered from intense ethnic-motivated terrorist activities between the 1970s and 1980s, and that their joining the Commonwealth was also a political decision to help ease such tensions).
    In the meanwhile, Tarajani diplomatic efforts to mediate between Arveyres and the UKZ will continue, despite the serious problems affecting the Kingdom's domestic politics.


    NEW TARAJAN OFFERS AID FOR OIL SPILLING

    News coming from the Arveyran coasts are increasing concerns about the environmental impact of the oil spilling from the MarPeC platform.
    As a result it is not surprising that the Kingdom, through its Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Ahmad Al'Din Rumi, stated that "we are ready to contribute to the efforts already under way by Marquette and Arveyres in order to contain the spill from the platform and avoid further environmental damage."
    New Tarajan, which is reknown for its strict environmental policies, during the last decades developed technologically-advanced measures in order to counter similar catastrophes. Special vessels of the MBA (Milieubescherming Agentschap, the Environmental Protection Agency), equipped with the necessary tools, have been alerted in Bergenstadt, waiting for further instructions.

    SULTANATE STRENGTHENS ALLIANCES ABROAD
    Nafplio Bolsters Border Protection as Allies Threatened by Aggression

    Nafplio, Morea: Earlier today, Sultana Aikaterini II Baumbach-Kallergis and her primary logothetai revealed to the public that the Sultanate of Morea has finalized another round of defense agreements with foreign powers whose interests align with Morean concerns. According to the announcement, the Sultanate recently began a new round of correspondence with the Federal Aristocratic Kingdom of New Tarajan, one of the Sultanate’s primary defensive partners at present, with the aim of requesting membership in the wide-ranging defensive alliance OMNI Enforcer. At the same time, the Sultanate reopened communications with the Social Democracy of New-Zealand, with which Morea has a cordial if somewhat distant relationship, in the hopes of lending and receiving aid as circumstances demanded. In both cases, Sultana Aikaterini announced today, the Sultanate’s efforts have borne fruit. “We have received preliminary notice from Tarajani authorities that the membership of OMNI Enforcer has accepted the Sultanate’s request for membership,” the Sultana said. “And we have simultaneously agreed upon a new defensive partnership with New-Zealand that will, we dearly pray, be of service to both parties. Morea and the Achaian people can look forward to a safer future as part of a larger and stronger collection of international friends.”

    Though Sultana Aikaterini made no overt statement about the intent or the timing of these agreements, there is only one logical reason for them. The Sultanate’s new communications have brought it into a stronger-than-ever partnership with nations and organizations that have recently drawn the aggressive attention of the Eurasian Empire, Morea’s most constant foreign policy concern. Critics, both within and outside of the Sultanate, have not reacted well to this assertive statement of solidarity with nations that have become targets of Eurasian intervention, not least because the Empire’s attention has fallen on these nations due to a political division within OMNI, in which New-Zealand, a non-member, has taken the part of OMNI members standing against New Tarajan. “OMNI is visibly fractured at the moment, New-Zealand is in the thick of it, and Eurasia is threatening another invasion only seven months after tearing the Kiwis apart for little more than sport,” an official from the Duchy of Montferrat, who asked not to be named, said in response to today’s announcement. “Yet this is the party the Duchess [Sultana Aikaterini] has chosen to join, for no reason whatsoever given that the conflict in question has nothing at all to do with Morea, or Montferrat, or anywhere in Norda for that matter. After centuries of staying out of Eurasia’s way whenever humanly possible, how in the world did the Duchess come by this decision?”

    Sources in Nafplio, who also requested anonymity, have explained that these same divisions in OMNI were a large part of the reason for the Sultana’s decision. “Her Anointed Majesty was truly dismayed to see the members of OMNI threatening action against one another, especially nations such as New Tarajan and [the United Kingdoms of] Zackalantis, with whom Morea has good relations,” the palace source said. “And of course we have a good relationship with New-Zealand and the Garagen Administration, particularly after the Eurasian invasion early this year. But Her Anointed Majesty was much heartened to see the leadership of OMNI once more solidify in the face of Eurasian interference in the proceedings. Her Majesty can only applaud an organization that remains strong and solid in the face of outside aggression, no matter its internal tensions. Such a place holds much promise for the Sultanate.”

    It has yet to be seen, however, if the Sultanate holds much promise for OMNI. For most of its history, Morea has remained free of Eurasian dominance only through a dependence on the aid of the Empire of Duresia. Two years ago, the late Sultan Ioannis IX attached Morea permanently to the Duchy of Montferrat in return for Montferrati aid, in the hope of alleviating this dependency; today Montferrati soldiers, mostly Makarians from Norda, outnumber Achaians in uniform in their own country. And since the Eurasian-led invasion of New-Zealand, which included the military and diplomatic support of the Duresian Empire among others, Morean supplications to New Tarajan and the Federation of Antanares have brought thousands of foreign soldiers, and millions of yperpyroi of foreign military equipment, to bolster Morea’s vulnerable borders with Eurasia. Formally joining with OMNI Enforcer seems only to reinforce the current trend: The Sultanate desires ever-larger and more powerful friends to do the fighting that would otherwise fall to unprepared Achaians alone.

    Given this lack of military strength, it is difficult to imagine that the Sultanate has any real contributions to make to its allies abroad, which further prompts questions about purposely antagonizing an overbearing neighbor by joining the OMNI organization and partnering with New-Zealand. Sultana Aikaterini acknowledged the military situation in her announcement, when she pledged “to use the time and resources given to us by this arrangement to restore the glory of our nation and uplift our people in the eyes of our allies, and to make this Sultanate a strong partner within the Esamir community.” How long that may or may not take, however, is a question that cannot be answered now.

    MarPeC CEO, 'This is just the beginning'

    MarPeC CEO addressing the press

    Fuerteventura, Marquette--The oil leak caused by an explosion on the Marquetien-owned Sunset Tango drilling platform has been stopped, according to Jovão Copyarto, CEO of MarPeC in a press conference held this morning. Those familiar with the matter are attributing the explosion to gross neglect of key parts in the pipeline which prevent pressure from reaching critical levels.

    In a surprise move, Copyarto himself took the blame for the ordeal and delivered his resignation, effective in six months. "It would be immature," he said, "to leave this company in the state that it is now and not work to solve the grievous disaster I caused."

    Copyarto said that when given the choice to use Marquetien-made pressure control valves versus imported ones, he chose the ones manufactured in Marquette. "It is clear to me now that it is foolish to jump the gun and choose domestic parts over foreign parts without subjecting them to adequate stress tests. If I could rewind the clock and choose parts imported from Zackalantis or New Zealand instead of Marquette, I would in a heartbeat." Twenty-nine drilling platforms owned by MarPeC have ceased production in order for thorough inspection, and three have already been labeled high-risk for valve failure.

    When asked how he plans to tackle the environmental impact in the six months before he leaves, Copyarto said, This is just the beginning. Our team will be working day and night until every last drop of oil is removed from the Latin Sea. I have made an error that cost three people their lives and destroyed an entire body of water's ecosystem, and we will not stop until we make this right again."
