Williams plane was coming into land at Pyongyang in the early morning after flying all night across the world to be the first Britain to set foot in Korea for decades, a massive step for the UK and a large personal step for Will. Harry, his older brother the King had tasked him with establishing a dialogue with the Korean Government with the aims of eventually securing an alliance and opening the British markets more to a wider international trade.

He felt the gentle bump as his plane touched down and began taxiing to the terminal. A quick brush of his hair, a straightening of his tie finalised his preparation for meeting his Korean counterparts.

The for opened and he stepped out into the sun and stepped down the stairs before setting the first British foot on Korean soil since before he was born.

The Koreans were not at all enthusiastic of this visitor that came with only a day's notice. Normally any planes approaching the Northern State of the Greater Korean Federation would be "escorted" to the south, but it was decided to humor the self-centered Brits for once.

Williams would be taken to the Ryugyong Hotel, as it shone in the morning sun through the fog. There he would meet Pak Ui Chun, Minister of Foreign Affairs. The man was silent as he waited for the prince to speak first.

William bowed as he stepped towards Pak Ui Chun, he extended his right arm, support his forarm with his left hand as a show of respect as he had been tought in England before officially greeting the Minister.
"Greetings Minister, it is a pleasure to meet you, I am Prince William, but please, call me Will" he said with a warm smile.

There was only a cold stare from Pak. "What brings the petty islanders to this side of the globe? We consider this visit from a regime that has constantly worked to undermine the freedom of the Korean people to be quite unnatural."

Will withdrew his hand after Pak ignored the attempt to shake hands and placed them behind his back.
"Its not like Korea doesnt undermine Britain either, dont play the victim, we are both at fault." Will snapped before calming himself and returning to a normal tone of voice.

"Things change, regimes change as does policy. The abolishment of the Triumvirate and the re-instating of the Monarchy changed alot of things in Government. My father faced down the Irish, the Scottish and the Slavorussians and the unification of Britain cost him his life in the end. He is considered a great man in Britain, but on the international plains? He was a hot headed and tempermental son of a !@#$%* who more than often let his passion overwhelm his logic and unfortunately, it influenced Britains standing with several nations in a negative fashion, mainly those of the former Empire and those who suffered at the hands of Imperial Britain in one form or another. However, when he unified the Isles, he declared the Windsor Doctrine, which essentially stated Britain would not be expanding outside of its existing territory, we also issued a formal apology for the crimes of Imperial Britain, Im sure you will have recieved a briefing at somepoint in time in regards to it. He also worked tirelessly to bring Britain back to a fully democratic state, something by brother is continuing to work with." Will paused and thought for a second before continuing.

"Britains friends are Euro-Centric, we did have close ties to America before Maine went beserk and sent nukes flying the world over. Britain and Asia have never really had strong ties and often, the UK and Korea end up at loggerheads. However, I think we should change that. Doctrines and apologies only achieve so much as far as repairing relations goes so I have a suggestion that has merit. Instead of going at eachother in the diplomatic scene where other nations can interfere, make things worse and all that negative crap they usually try and pull. How about if we come to a disagreement or whatever it is along those lines that we dont agree with, we confer in private and discuss the matters at hand like gentlemen."

The Foreign Minister was silent for a few moments, then replied.

"So basically, you want a gentlemen's truce, where we are supposed to respect each other? That is something I believe we are not ready for just yet. After all, it took diplomatic isolation for you to come to us, has it not? However, perhaps we can work out something informal....."

A momentary silence.

"Who do you think is the United Kingdom's most possible enemy in the near future?"

"We have strong reasons to believe that the UFE was behind the chemical attack on Britain earlier this year, all the evidence points to them, but without a confirming piece of information we cannot say for certain.
And for your information, no it was not diplomatic isolation, it was the simple fact that you hate us, we dislike you, it made more sense to try and fix things with a nation that we know where we stand with. If we know where we stand then we know we can find some sort of arrangment."

"An arrangement..... Something we can work on, it seems. A business transaction is much more trustworthy than most mere promises.

Now, concerning the recent opiate attack on the UK..... We [i]might[/i] have something which would be of help to you, but I am not sure if I should discuss it, given the repercussions this might cause. What might you offer for this?"

It would depend entirely on what the information reveals to our investigation. For example if it prooved without a doubt the perpetrator of the attack, we would pay handsomely aswell as other benefits. If it narrowed down the investigation to a particular region of the world? Well I'm sure we could come to an agreement.

"As I said, this might be of help, given that it is circumstantial evidence."

A few hazy infrared photos of twelve plane-like vehicles on a runway appeared on the wall screen.

"These were taken by our Space-Based Infrared System over the Kuriles, on an area just barely within sight. As you can see, approximately less than two hour before the United Kingdom was attacked, there wre twelve of these strange planes that took off from a certain Alaskan base, heading north. Our line of sight was not enough to constantly track them, but given the cirumstances, we believe that the nation who has the base is the culprit.

I cannot say whether this can be decisive evidence, since the country in question is known to be the one with largest clique in the world, and the activity in the area makes it ideal for the nation to hide things. This is the most I can provide for you.

Now, what would the UK be willing to do for us?"

"Those images are from the UFE Base in Alaska, a known military hub with flights coming and going 24 hours a day, 7 days a week Sir. It isnt concrete enough to issue a statement, nor is it legitimate enough to be put down as solid evidence in our investigations. The UFE also already informed us that they had detected strange radar signals over Alaska and had dispatched jets to investigate but the radar signatures had already escaped and were left unidentified. I do believe this rules out UFE involvement to be honest. However, Blue Heaven on the other hand has solid reasons to wanting to attack the UK. Decades ago when Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte of Canda held the Imperial Canadian throne, Blue Heaven and Imperial Canada came very close to open warfare over a border dispute. When the Imperium launched its campaign against several Arctic nations, Blue Heaven siezed the initiative and invaded in an attempt to capture/kill the Imperial family. Either way, to cut a long story short, his daughter, Jessica got married to my brother. She is now the Queen of the United Kingdom Sir." Williams eyes widened as it dawned on him.

"Do you think that Blue Heaven could have been behind this attack?"

"We can certain have this "cleared" to allow us to present evidence of Blue Heaven being behind the attacks. Should we do so, what would the United Kingdom do? We do not wish to be dragged into a possible conflict on the other side of the world."

"With solid evidence? We will seek to elimate Blue Heavens war fighting ability. We will humble them before the world Sir and seek monetary compensation for the thousands of ruined lives. Koreas involvement in coming forward with information will be kept a state secret and competly out of the public eye to avoid entanglement and escalation. What would Korea ask of Britain in exchange for this evidence?"

"I would not be completely sure. In terms of economy or technology, it seems there is not much that the United Kingdom can offer us. I would have to first listen to an offer before putting forth the opinions of the Premier."

"We have the second largest navy in Europe after the Athenians, we have a mothball fleet of warships less than five years old four times the size of the active fleet. We have several high tech anti ship and anti air systems, the most noted and successful is our HELLADs system. We have recently introduced a new body armour which is light and offers limited nanotechnology driven armour over critical areas. As a whole it can stop a steel projectile travelling over 1.5km/s. We have several other systems we can offer"

"Aside from how we're currently under a [i]de facto[/i] blockage by the United Federation of the East, I am certain that a nation as independent in thought as ours would not be so accepting of foreign military technology. Is there anything else besides giving us something that would raise anger among nations that dislikes the United Kingodm that you might offer? Just as you are concerned for your safety, we are also focused on being an independent nation."

"Perhaps the UK can give us access to some of its spy satellites above Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Korea traditionally has kept all of its space assets focused on East Asia and the North Pacific, giving us almost perfect vision over the happenings here but keeps us dark as to the other parts of the world. Or, the UK can launch a satellite of two for our benefit, under the premise that those are Uk satellites. Would that be possible?"

"We have already reached our maximum capacity, with no further room to launch unless we manage to obtain new territory. If you are against us having separate satellites, all that we shall ask is regular notification of any suspicious movements by a certain Eastern European/Central Asian empire. Would that be acceptable?"


OOC: I already got more than 50 spy satellites RPed above East Asia. Anything more and it would be just unrealistic.

"Very well, any information yo might give us on the nation in question would be enough as payment. Give us a day to finish up our side of the bargain."

A pleasant night (filled with the best entertainment Pyongyang had to offer, complete with "recreational" drugs if wanted) for the Prince had passed, and in the morning he would be given several paper files containing the doctored pictures that would show that Blue Heaven had launched several ICBMs from a temporary launching site, which would disappear from the face of the earth a week later. There would be no possible way for Blue Heaven to deny its involvement......




OOC: http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=97237&view=findpost&p=2734403 With double successes, please consider this as a perfect doctoring, meaning no backtracking to Korea.
