Greetings Grand Chancellor, I wish to travel to Xavier to discuss furthering our mutually beneficial relationship. So far, we have enjoyed an excellent relationship with Cyrantia and it is the Senates belief that the USRS is ready to further our relationship.

To: Malenkov Sergeievich Alexandrei, President of the United Socialist Republic of Siberia
From: Sergei Aleksandrov

We will gladly host a representative of your republic, and are pleased to hear that you are satisfied with our relationship thus far and willing to further it. At your earliest convenience, send your men to Xavier, and we shall reopen discussions. We are negotiating with other national representatives as well so you will only be met by our High Chancellor of Foreign Affairs. I believe you are familiar with him already, so hopefully he shall suffice.

The President departed the USRS along with his trusted avisor, Govorov and two Republican Guards in a Gulfstream IV jet designated "Executive One".
The aircraft cruised lazily through the morning for the three hour flight before coming into land in Xavier.

The guards remaned with the aircraft whilst Malenkov and Govorov travelled to meet the High Chancellor of Foreign Affairs.

After a brief drive the car arrived at the designated meeting location and both men stepped out into the building to meet with Bazhenov,the foreign affairs Chancellor.

OOC
Skip to the meeting.

High Chancellor of Foreign Affairs Dmitry Garin had previously been waiting for the United Federation of the East. After the Siberian negotiations request, he left and met the men in the conference room of another Cyrantian government building. He saw the men's confused looks, and immediately recognized the problem.

"[i]Perhaps you gentlemen were expecting my friend and colleague, Maksim Bazhenov, as he was the one who negotiated our original treaty with you. He is actually our High Chancellor of Internal Affairs, but has been trained in foreign affairs as well. Both the Grand Chancellor and I were busy during the time of our initial meeting, so we sent High Chancellor Bazhenov. At the moment he is in the Magadan Oblast discussing with their government, and so I am here to meet with you. My name is Dmitry Garin, I am Cyrantia's true High Chancellor of Foreign Affairs.[/i]"

Garin took a seat at the small table with the two men, with two Siberian and two Cyrantian guards standing. He sipped at a small glass of Coca-Cola, his favorite soft drink, then addressed the men.

"[i]Now, gentlemen, what exactly did you have in mind with furthering our relationship?[/i]"

After recomposing themselves, both men took a seat.

Malenkov spoke first.

"Not a problem, I have still not managed to find a competant enough ambassador to send abroad apart from Govorov here" he said gesturing to the man sat to his left.

"Now then, as you will be aware, recently an investigation found that elements within Magadan Oblast had access to light artillery and proceeded to launch an attack over the border. However, our intelligence officers are still convinced they came from official forces of the Magadan Oblast regime. In an effort to in a word... dissuade any further violence, the First Peoples Armada, a Republican taskforce which includes three aircraft carriers and three light carriers is to be scheduled to hold a live fire exercise in the Sea of Okhotsk within USRS territorial waters. I feel it is imperative that you be made aware of this exercise due to the size of the fleet." Malenkov took a sip of water before continuing.

"You may also be aware we have several of our lighter naval vessels monitering Magadan Oblast maritime traffic just outside of their EEZ. This again, is of no concern to Cyrantia and are in position for your protection as much as ours. However, coverage is extremely limited and keeping tabs on them is prooving quite difficult. Would you allow Naval Nimrod MRA4's to fly over your eastern airspace and territorial waters, to assist the Corvettes? Their sensors are far stronger and have a much longer range. In exchange for this permission, the Senate has granted me the authority to upgrade the Optional Defence clause in our alliance to Mutual Defence should you wish it."

"[i]Yes, we have been aware of the situation. After it became clear that your borders had been attacked by the Magadan Oblast, we strengthened our border with them to the tune of fifteen thousand men and hundreds of tanks. Thank you for making us aware of your naval presence, it will allow our people to remain calm. You may rest assured that our new treaty with the Magadan Oblast is purely economic with no military involvement. After that incident we felt we could not sign a military agreement with them without conferring with you.[/i]"

Garin took another drink of the Coca-Cola. The sweet liquid dried his throat a bit, so he took a sip from a water bottle next to it.

"[i]The Chancellery of Cyrantia would be happy to grant you permission to fly over our eastern territories and water holdings. We'd also be pleased to upgrade our military treaty with you, but the Grand Chancellor of the State has said he does not want a "trade", of sorts. He prefers an upgrade to come from mutual satisfaction, not in exchange for permissions or goods.[/i]"

"I hoped you would say that in regards to preferring the upgrade through mutual satisfaction, I apologies if my wording seemed rude or misleading. In regards to Magadan Oblast, please do not let our relationship with them stifle any possible friendship or alliance that may arise between both your Nations. It would be a folly for my Nation to seemingly dictate who Cyrantia may or may not have military connections with." finish Malenkov, sitting back sightly whilst Govorov took the reigns.

"As per protocol, we moniter large troop movements in the regions that we hold a land border with so we are quite aware of your border reinforcement, but we must insist you reduce the numbers of soldiers. If Magadan Oblast do attack again, any large formation of troops could be targetted and a massive loss of life would be devestating to your natioal moral, aswell as our own due to our friendship. I myself have already ordered a reduction of troops on the border, but rest assured, if such an attack does happen again, well, plans have been made to route any Magadan Oblast forces with ease."

"[i]We apologize for our misinterpretation of your wording. Thank you for clearing that up, and as I said, we'd be more than happy to upgrade our treaty to a Mutual Defense Pact.[/i]

Garin felt good around these men, they seemed quite friendly. Maksim was a bit jumpy and rather nervous, but if he alone could negotiate a treaty with them, Garin could certainly arrange a treaty upgrade.

"[i]As for our deployments, after the conclusion of this meeting, we shall immediately reduce numbers on the border to around our standard patrol. You can rest assured that if we face direct aggression from the Magadan Oblast military, you will see Cyrantian ground forces in the fray. We value our treaties and are glad to have an economic agreement with them, but we cannot and will not condone or forgive hostilities against you.[/i]"

"Im glad to hear that you will be taking our recommendations for consideration." said Govorov as he relaxed a little and took a sip of his drink whilst Malenkov returned to his posture of leaning slightly forward.

"Now, I do have some good news for you, another Regiment of highly trained Police Officers of around three and a half thousand men and women have completed training and are presently enroute to the border via trains. However I do now have a [i]very[/i]serious issue to take up with you. My nations Scientists are a mere breath away from detonating our first nuclear weapon as you may have read from our news. Its estimated to be within the next two months. Once this happens, we will be ensuring we have a first or even second strike capability by spreading our weapons out right across our military ranging from nuclear artillery and gravity bombs, to ICBM and SLBM platforms. It is imperetive that I find out your position on a nuclear armed USRS before I give any sort of green light to a test."

For the first time in a very long period, Garin felt uneasy. Since its inception, Cyrantia had faced various threats of several degrees, but [b]nuclear weapons?[/b] That was a real worry. It was one of the few things that the High Chancellor found extremely unsettling. He took a drink of the Coca-Cola and answered.

"[i]Personally I am quite against them, but general Cyrantian opinion and our government stance dictates that we are not opposed to nuclear weapons. While we believe they do much more harm than good in almost all cases, we shall not deny any stable nation capable of nuclear development its right to advancement. Thus, we give you our permission to test and development your new technologies. However, we do ask that Cyrantia be considered when performing testing, as we wouldn't want to be accidentally caught in the middle of a nuclear explosion and fallout.[/i]"

"You are right to be against them, however, they provide a much safer environment for my people. In then event the USRS finds itself at war, a nation will think twice before deploying nuclear weaponry against us through our ability to fire back and cause equal if not more damage. The MAD stratagem as it were. We have discussed at length the manner of testing and a ground burst is out of the question. An underground detonation is much cleaner and reduces fallout, however it also contaminates the ground. As for an airburst, they come with their own risks, though near to no fallout. Whichever one we chose, it will be tested many miles away from populated land." said Malenkov slightly relieved..

"Now to the next point unless you have anything you wish to add at this point Sir?"

The answer Malenkov delivered relieved Garin a bit. Taking a drink from his water bottle, he found himself calm once again. Fear had gripped him for a small moment, but the calmness of the man sitting across from him had brought Garin back. He smiled and considered his thoughts, then responded.

"[i]No, I don't believe I have anything to add at this particular point in time. Please continue.[/i]"

"If your sure... I shall continue. The Department of Transport is undergoing a major project to connect all settlements in our Nation via a massive road and rail network. Many of the road/rail networks continue right up to the border with Cyrantia. Mirroring this network is the military one. A dedicated transport system for the military alone for mass movement of troops in a fast and orderly fashion. These however do stop at the border for obvious reasons. Would Cyrantia permit the civilian network to extend across your nation in a jointly funded project once it crosses the border to unite our nations road and rail systems to allow fast, efficient and cheap travel for all who wish to come and go? This offer of course comes hand in hand with an open border policy between us both regarding civilian traffic. I recall it be discussed in our first summit with other powers present, and we declined initially. However, after a year of cooperation and trade, we feel comfortable discussing the proposition again."

"[i]Yes, I also recall the proposition at the first summit among the Siberian nations. We have still been interested and will gladly accept your offer. We would like to request a joint police presence to monitor passages between our two nations. Hopefully this would discourage any crime or attacks, and of course they would also try to root out illegal aliens or questionable cargo. Thus we can lower illegal immigration and drug trade over our border while still improving traffic and ease immensely.[/i]"

"Of course, however, we do need a system that works for us both. Whilst an open border would greatly improove inter border relations between the people, it admittidly does leave a large space for abuse by foreign nationals and illegal aliens from outside both our nations. I suggest the open border only apply to passport holders of the USRS and Cyrantia. This would of course mean crossing at border checkpoints or perhaps the development of an automated Passport reader allowing citizens to 'self check' themselves across the border."

"[i]Rather than border checks, of course we could have mandatory passport checks at all boardings and deboardings. This way, the trains could freely pass the border without wasting time with stopping at the border. In my opinion it would ensure safety and prevention of aliens as well as allowing for efficient travel without superfluous stops.[/i]"

"That is certainly one alterative that I didnt consider, what about cars though? they either have to be checked at the border by personel, or a passport reader is developed that only recognises Republican and Cyrantian Passports."

"Unless you have anything else you wish to discuss I believe we are concluded Sir, once again its been a pleasure to meet with Cyrantias diplomats. Just a friendly reminder though... dont forget the treaty upgrade" Malenkov chuckled.

"[i]We shall not forget it, it will be celebrated throughout the streets of Cyrantia. It's been a great pleasure, and I bid you a pleasant journey back to the United Socialist Republic of Siberia.[/i]"

Garin motioned to an aide, who come forward to show the gentlemen to the door.
