Andrew turned to the treaty scribe.

"For the record, remove the Austrian signatores. They are definately leaving Zurich.

Also, for the record, Livonia and Torun are accepted into the Zurich treaty as full members.

Livonia - 2/2 yes votes
Torun - 2/2 yes votes.

If the representatives would care to add their signatures to the treaty?"

In regard to the Germanic comments in the Announcment regarding the unification of Britain, would you mind elaborating.

Moreover we have a serious issue of the EoPI refusing to leave their base in Britain. There claim is that a 100 year lease was signed and so the base is Sovereign Imperial Territory. What is this councils opinion?

Britain was allied to America at the time. We hold no treaty with the Empire at this time.

However, we are already hosting a base belonging to the DPRM whom we do have an alliance with.

Our issue is not with the base, it is the claim that the base is American sovereign territory that is the issue.

"Livonia feels the base is [i]necessary[/i] to remove the base as soon as possible. It is home to 30,000 troops of EoPI, it would serve as an invasion point and we would not be able to take it without risking more and more European lives." He says. "We need to remove it, we cannot wait until stability in EoPI is at age. If we do, we may end up facing a tough war to win. We suggest that we pursuit the EoPI to leave the base by means of an ultimatum."

"In favor." Says the Delegate when returning.

He sits down and continues,

"Hm, the assesment of the situation that I can gather is...

That while taking the base would be more than easy, it would likely cause war. Besides, they do seem to hold a pact with the Chinese...most of Europe would find it unappropiate to begin a war so shortly after what we have been through.

Our intelligence points to the fact that Pravus Ingruo is constantly, gradually spiralling downwards, losing points from the National Strength Index daily and consistently. If this situation continues, when the dust settles, they might simply need to leave no matter what.

Another thing is if we do act againt Pravus Ingruo it is likely for this to bolster the Anti-European Side of their civil war, which is likely a long-term threat. Alternately we might be wrong and they may indeed become stronger later.

Another advisor has suggested that we simply wait for a time of weakness in the nation, such as, if it ever ends up involved later in a war proper and is stretched, to deal with this. The safest method perhaps, but, we might need to wait indefinitely.

Either way we recognize the legitimacy of the English Claims. The problem is that, as easy as the land may be to take, bombs are likely to rain across your Islands for some time alongside with some bad PR. This whole situation is frustrating.

All we know is, sooner or later, the land [i]will[/i] be recovered. It is only right."
