The government of the UKZ and that of the TAP community members have been engaged in talks for months now regarding Zack inclusion into the TAP.
With the negotiations finally at an end, New Tarajan, Antanares and Vajjor upon invitation by the UKZ government arrived in Cair Paravel to seal the deal of a zack seat in the TAP community. Already being informally reffered to as TAPZ (pronounced taps) in Zackalantis.
The new community called now the Illidian Alliance is already a great influence in international politics and affairs.
"Honorable leaders of the Illidian continent. I welcome you all to Cair Paravel.
This continent of ours has been the witness of war and instability through out the years. But now with the establishment of the Illidian Alliance, this continet has hope for a more prosperous and peaceful future as the Illidian Alliance consists of not only the most important and powerful nations on this continent but all around the world.
The UKZ is glad to be a part of the Illidian Alliance Family.
What makes us different from the other organizations and Alliances of the world are our goals. They are geared towards development and security of our nations and our people. Our goals are realistic and ambitious. The UKZ has a lot to gain and a lot to contribute towards this alliance.
The fact that our developing nation has been accepted into the his elite alliance is a matter of pride for us and proof of our growth.
We look forward to the many infrastructure projects that will be carried out and pledge full support and cooperation.
The UKZ also would like to remind its fellow Allies regarding their responsibilty to a better and safer environement and therefore proposes the launch of the Illidian Conseravtion Programme (ICP). In the past years several animal and plant species have been driven to the tip of extinction, it is our duty as world leaders to prevent this atrocity. The ICP will play an integral part of deveopment, While we usually tend to focus on economic growth or military power we tend to forget what feeds our development- the environment and our people. We encourage our fellow allies to support and cooperate with the ICP in order to have a better environemnt and happier citizens."
PM Potter then commented on foreign policy, expecially the growth of the Terran Federation in order to put to rest ideas of the Illidian Alliance being the main competition to the Terran Federation as popularized by the opposition benches in Parliament.
"The UKZ doesn't want to see the Illidian Alliance turn into an organization that is used to play 'cold war' games and tactics with other nations. The Illidian Alliance is an organization established for peace and progress. The Terran Federation should therefore be no threat to the Illidian Allaince. There need not be any tensions between our Alliance and the Terran Federation.
Another massive feat that this meeting has managed to accomplish is the inclusion of the UKZ in the OMNI programme.
The government of New Tarajan and Antanares invited the UKZ to integrate his military into the OMNI, This question passed parlimentary scrutiny with a small margin.
His Majesty's PM had this to say
"The inclusion of His Majesty's Troops into the OMNI is a historic feat. It not only tells the world that the UKZ and his allies are defended by the world's strongest military organization but also shows the world the level of cooperation and trust that the UKZ has with his allies.
This initative will pave the way for much closer ties and relationship between all nations included in the OMNI.
His Majesty's Royal Armed Forces Joint Command and His Majesty's Ministry of Defense will work together and cooperate with the other nations in OMNI for greater security.
We shall look foward to the OMNI for a stronger attack on against terrorism within all our borders and even outside.
The General Elections which are expected to take place soon before the end of the term of Parliament, will play an important role in the future of the UKZ in the Illidian Alliance and the OMNI.
The current ruling party is the Zach People's Party (ZPP), a largely socialist party, that has managed to bring about great reform in the zack economy, however opinion polls show that the ZPP reamins to be largely unpopular due to their socuialy backward and anti-secular policies. The Liberalists who maintain fairly balanced economic compass is the favourite in the up coming elections. It is important to note however that the Liberalist Part raised the most objections to the UKZ being a part of the OMNI.
If the Liberalist Party manages to get a majority it would be interesting to see how the UKZ would function in the Illidian Alliance and the OMNI.
The Elections in New Caucasoid are bound to take place very soon with the Zack Election Commission extending its help to carry out New Caucasoid's First election.
However the question of the existence of New Caucasoid hangs in the balance as well.
The Transitional Government of New Caucasoid (TGNC) has claimed that the national policy on religion is that "God does not exist". The TGNC has claimed 'aetheism' as their official religion and claims are now arising that the TGNC has ordered the closure of several churches in the catholic, goan dominated region and the closure of several mosques in the Muslim dominated region.
the Goan community once again protested outside zack parliament demanding that they be integrated into the UKZ and not into New Caucasoid.
The Muslim dominated region has started to make demands of an independent nation, Islamabad. They do not want to be integrated into New Caucasoid or UKZ.
This matter was not ignored in parliament this time as heated debate ensued. The Ruling Coalition, headed by the Zack People's Party however chose to downplay these events and cliam that the opposition is participating in disruption politics. The scene was similar in the upper house, The Council of Monarchs as the Monarch representing Chelyabisnk and the Royal MPs representing Chelyabinsk raised their voice and urged the King to force the government in the lower house to do something about the issue at hand.
