Meeting the Cyrantians

Malenkov was in his office at the Presidential Palace when his aid, Govorov Kapustin entered the room holding a tray with several cups, a teapot, a sugar pot and some milk.
"Alexandrei, the Cyrantian delegation has just landed at Longashinko International, they will be here in about half an hour so make yourself look presentable." he said to the President as he began hauling himself out of his chair and over to the door to his private quarters to change suits. He ended up settling on a blue shirt and a grey blazer jacket, he swapped out his brown cane for a black one and his chilling sneakers to a pair of brand new sneakers. All in all he looked very casual, and yet very smart, certainly presentable enough to a Princess. His hair had its standard unkept look and his facial hair was at a nice four day growth, not too long to be a problem, not to short to look scruffy.

After around twenty five minutes, Malenkov was finally ready just as Govorov returned to the office.
"They have just arrived at the main entrance Alexandrei" he said before ducking back out of the room and making his way back to the reception hall. As the delegation would approach the great doors, flanked by two lines of Republican Guards in ceremonial uniform, Govorov would open the doors and greet the Cyrantians.
"It is a pleasure to meet you, I am Govorov Kapustin, aid to the President, please follow me to the Presidents Office".

Yes, I am this lazy.

Maksim Bazhenov, High Chancellor of Internal Affairs, followed the aide to the office of the President. As he walked, he felt strangely uneasy despite the circumstances. He knew that his training in foreign affairs was more than enough to handle these discussions, but the idea that he was about to meet the leaders of another nation churned his stomach. Despite his anxiousness, he entered calmly and shook the man's hand, and introduced himself.

"[i]Good day to you, Mr. President. I am High Chancellor Maksim Bazhenov. Our Grand Chancellor apologizes for being unable to attend this meeting, but he and High Chancellor Dmitry Garin are discussing relations with Marscurian Siberia. In the meantime, I've been authorized to attend and speak for our government in these meetings. The Grand Chancellor trusts my judgement and would say so himself for reassurance if you'd like.[/i]"

Bazhenov sat down, relieved that the first and most important sentences he said had gone so smoothly. The chair he sat in was comfortable and overstuffed, and being in it calmed his nerves further. He cupped his hands in his lap and spoke again.

"[i]Now, Mr. President. You have called us to this meeting, so what entirely do you have in mind for the relations between our two nations?[/i]"

"It is a pleasure to meet with you Chancellor Bazhenov, may I call you Maksim for the purpose of the meeting? Your more than welcome to call me Alexi. Now then the last meeting we had failed due to simply being too grand a scheme too soon, and our recent offer to provide your security forces proper and lengthy training is well underway and the first company of recruits will be passing out later this week to undertake duties back in Cyrantia. Its been one of my goals since achieving the nations Independance to uphold excellent relations with our surrounding Nations, mainly, yourselves, Vaule, Marscurian Siberia and the UFE. Invites have been sent to the UFE and Masrcury already invting them to Logashinko for meetings later in the week. Now what I have in mind for our two nations could be compared to a family. We both come from the same parent nation which makes us... siblings in a sense. However, I must first ask what Cyrantia hopes to gain from this meeting and what it hopes to build on in the future with the USRS? Secondly,this is by no means a one way discussion, if you have anything you wish to put forward, please, feel free to say so."

Bazhenov chuckled very slightly and thought for a moment before speaking.

"[i]Yes, you may call me Maksim. We don't take ourselves quite as seriously as our titles may imply, so thank you for that. Yes, we both do come from the Vaulians, so we are a bit akin to siblings. That makes good relations between us that much more significant, because as you know, siblings don't always get along well.

Alexi, the Chancellery of Cyrantia is willing to consider treaties of all kinds. Just now the Marscurians are negotiating an economic treaty with us, with no military bearing whatsoever. However, we also live in very... shall we say, trying times. Large wars are a reality every day, and when war comes one will not always avoid it. When we do get involved, it would be preferable to have allies to help. Thus, Grand Chancellor Aleksandrov asked me to request some sort of Defense Pact between us, among other things you would find acceptable.

From this meeting we hope to gain a close friend and ally. While we are friendly with a few nations, we have yet to truly establish any sort of true partnerships. As close as our two nations are both in origin and location, we believe the USRS may be just the candidate to form such an agreement with. As for the future, we hope to only grow closer ties between us. What does the USRS hope to achieve from this, and what do you want to see on a treaty between us?[/i]"

"A mutual defence agreement or optional?" said Alexi taking a quick sip of tea before continuing.
"The USRS hopes to further good relations with Cyrantia and cultive a prosperous relationship through trade and mutual assistance. As you may already be aware, the Peoples Navy currently has four of its Corvettes deployed to the Sea of Okhotsk to combat illegal activities aswell as maintain a presence in the region, not to mention the standard search and rescue operations. We have plans to expand the Peoples Navy in the Sea of Okhotsk to enable maximum coverage, defence and assistance possible. However, this could be seen by your own Government as potentially hostile which is why im letting you know now to avoid any misunderstanding between our Governments."

"[i]Whichever you're comfortable with would be fine. If you feel good enough about us to go into a mutual agreement, we would agree. If you'd like to hold off and make it optional that works as well. Which do you prefer? I agree, trade and mutual commerce are important between us. Our economies would both benefit. We thank you for informing us about your naval presence - we had noticed, but were unsure of its origin. We do appreciate the patrols, we've had difficulties with illegal immigrants brought in as ship cargo.[/i]"

Bazhenov took a fairly large swig of the bottled water he carried. His throat had gone dry, and he wanted to continue talking well as he had been.

"[i]Now, besides the mutual or optional defense agreement, what other clauses would you like to see on a treaty?[/i]"

"I believe a mutual agreement would be too much of a step to begin with so I would have to go with optional first. A trade and mutual commerce clause should be added for good measure. As for extra clauses, what about intelligence and RADAR sharing? What are your thoughts on that?"

"[i]I think we've both established that we want an Optional Defense Pact as well as mutual trade and commerce agreement.
I agree in the case of an intelligence and RADAR clause. If one of us holds intelligence or RADAR readings that is pertinent to the other in any way, we shall share them? It allows us both to be informed in cases that involve us, but we won't be sharing anything and everything, so things will not be over shared.[/i]"

Alexi none pulsed for a moment whilst he processed the last bit about sharing.
"I am sorry, not enough coffee this morning, so basically, we only share information and RADAR data if required?"

Just got out of bed and incredibly hungover and possibly still a little stoned.

"[i]Right. We can't share every piece of intelligence and RADAR signal we receive. If we did that all we'd have would be a lot of aired dirty laundry, if you catch my drift, that didn't even pertain to us. If it could affect us, then by all means we must share it with the other.[/i]"

[b]OOC:[/b] that's fine... I post tired a lot too, I know how it feels.

Bazhenov sipped from his bottled water, evidently more to think than to wet his mouth. After a moment or two, he put it down.

"[i]I'm satisfied with our agreement as it stands. So long as you have nothing more to add on, I think we need to begin work on the document itself.[/i]"

"[i]We've edited the document very slightly from its original version, changing a bit of wording, formatting and the like. We've also signed it ourselves and wait for you to do the same. This is a great occasion for both of our nations, Alexi.[/i]"

Alexi leaned forward and signed the document neatly.

"Then it is concluded Sir, was there any further issues you wished to discuss?"

"[i]Only one more issue of importance, I feel. How do you care to announce the treaty? Would you like to, or should we?[/i]"

Bazhenov picked up the document and saw the two inked signatures. In an instant, two nations had become allies, and the proof had his name at the bottom. His stomach fell ten feet once again.

"[i]No thank you, I don't smoke myself... Thank you very much for this meeting, Alexi. The Chancellery of Cyrantia has benefited as a result, and we only hope the USRS will find the same result.[/i]"

Maksim raised and shook the President's hand, and followed the aide out, bound to return to Cyrantia.
