[quote]To: The Kingdom of Cochin
From: Pollax Hax, Imperial Minister of Foreign Affairs

Dear Friends,

As both of our nations share a border of significant length, we believe it to be prudent that both of our nations work towards a mutual and basic understanding of one another. Therefore, we invite you to Lusankya to begin these dicussions, in hopes that relations can be improved between the both of us. We do hope you accept.

Signed,
Pollax Hax
Imperial Minister of Foreign Affairs[/quote]

[quote]To: Pollax Hax, Imperial Minister of Foreign Affairs
From: Kingdom of Cochin

The Kingdom of Cochin accepts the invitation and shall be represented by Mr KP Varma, Minister of External Affairs.

Office of the King of Cochin,
Kingdom of Cochin[/quote]

KP Varma would travel to Lusankya aboard a King's Guards Fleet Merat to Lusankya accompanied by his usual coterie of aides and the customary King's Guards Personal Security Force. Immediately after the delegation has landed the KGF Merat would take off and maintain an orbit outside Lusankya Airport maintaining communication connectivity with both the delegation and Ministry of External Affairs in Cochin City.

Upon arriving in Lusankya, KP Karma would be welcomed by the Imperial Army's rendition of the Cochin National Anthem. Along side the red carpet, honor guards saluted the VP in order, as Imperial Regent Jorhan Stahl walked forward to shake Karma's hand.

"Welcome to Dalmatia. It is an honor and a privilege." After Stahl shook his hand, Pollax Hax moved forward. "I am glad that you accepted the invitation. We have much to discuss."

Both men then directed Karma to an awaiting escort, which would transport them to the Imperial Palace. Upon arriving at the gargantuan palace, they were directed to one of the massive conference rooms. The room was decorated with both the flags of Dalmatia and Cochin. KP Karma would be directed to take a seat, while Stahl and Hax did the same. As soon as all men were prepared, the meeting would begin.

"The pleasure is all mine, " KP Varma would reply to the Imperial Regent Sorhan Jtahl and Hollax Pax. The drive to the Imperial Palace along the immaculate streets of Lusankya was pleasant. The gargantuan palace and the massive conference hall had further reinforced the widespread impression regarding the Dalmatian's infatuation with building things of exaggerated sizes that KP Varma was well aware of. Diplomacy was a tough business at the best of times, it would certainly difficult with people with some deep rooted complexes. However the ever professional diplomat from the Kingdom wore his calm poker face as he addressed the Dalmatian leaders, "Thank you for extending this invitation to us. How may we assist you?"

Visari smiled and began to speak, when he was stopped by a representative from Imperial Intelligence. "Sorry for the interruption. Just one moment, please." Stahl turned to the intelligence chief, who handed him a short memo. He read it diligently, while giving quick glances at KP Karma who sat across the table. He sighed, and nodded at the intelligence chief, who quickly left the room.

"KP Karma, while we are honoured to have you in our nation, we do find it disrespectful to be conducting reconnaissance from your aircraft orbiting outside of our airports, especially during a diplomatic mission. Please stop. Your aircraft is welcomed to land in Lusankya for the duration of this meeting."

Stahl shrugged and sat back.

"Mr. Visari, the aircraft patrolling above Lusankya Airport is not an intelligence or reconnaissance platform. It is our standard operating procedure for diplomatic missions of a rather delicate nature that the transporting aircraft remain aloft as long as possible. We hope that this allowance may be made? Besides we hardly need a low altitude aerial platform to gain any measure of reconnaissance of your regions, as I am sure your technical personnel must know very well. Second of all my name is KP Varma and not KP Karma," the Cochin minister replied.

"Unfortunately, Visari isn't here. However, the fact remains Mr. Varma. Your transport wasn't given permission to orbit in our airpace; however, you were given permission to land at our airports. You were also granted permission to use our facilities. As a sign of good will and according to our procedures in this capital. We do request that you immediately land your aircraft."

"Very well, I shall order the aircraft to return to the Kingdom and another aircraft take its place which would however land at Lusankya Airport under Cochin guard. So now that is settled and we are clear that you are Mr. Stahl and not Visari, how may we be of assistance to you," KP Varma would then speak into his cell phone and relay orders to the essence that the KGF Merat would return to the Kingdom to be replaced by a KGF GH44 with a squad of King's Guards aboard it.

"I wouldn't act so one sided. I do believe we could be of assistance to each other. As long as you come into this meeting acting like a superstar football player, nothing will be accomplished. I'd like to think that we are all equals in this room, unless you are into the Korean belief system where you are some super man above the rest. If that were the case, then I'd be oh so disappointed. However, the main goal of this meeting is to come to a mutual understanding. I don't expect a miracle breakthrough overnight. That would be impossible with the current state of affairs."

"Could you be clear as to what act of one sidedness you are accusing me of, Mr. Stahl?" KP Varma would retort.

"You came off as very one sided and very arrogant, when you asked me "What can I do for you?". I was responding to that. As countries who have influence in our particular realms of influence, I do believe we could be of help to each other. This bad blood need not continue between us. We are both intelligent nations."

"You invited us to come here, we have accepted the invitation and that was merely a polite way of asking what was the context of this meeting. You should not have read the tones of any manner of superiority into it."

"I read the tones of superiority because that is how your nation presents itself in every situation. However, that is besides the main issue. The reason for these discussions is to come to a common understanding, on how both of our nations can coexist. Do you have any suggestions?"

"I am afraid we have no suggestions regarding that apart from the current state of affairs," KP Varma replied.

"I have a suggestion. During the rebellion in Kazakhstan, you opened your borders for refugees and encouraged to cross. However, according to documents from our intelligence service, a number of rebel leaders and followers crossed the border into your nation. Those very same leaders are responsible for the attack on the old palace in Tbilisi, which resulted in Visari sustaining some very severe injuries. As a sign of good-will, we do ask that you turn over these individuals, so we can punish them for their crimes."

"The borders the Kingdom shares with Dalmatia is one of the tightest and most regulated frontiers of the Kingdom. Considering the nature of amicability between our nations it is impossible that any person resident in Cochin would be able to communicate let alone organize an attack in Dalmatia. If however you suspect any person of having orchestrated such criminal acts before crossing over to Cochin you may share with us details of the same persons and we may consider handing them over to you."

"I thank you for your cooperation. Our law enforcement agencies will transmit the necessary data, concerning these possible suspects. On the other hand, I do suggest our two nations engage each other more often. War is never good for anyone. At the moment, we do posses a non aggression pact. Perhaps, we should extend that to a NAP and economic pact. It'd benefit us greatly, not to mention ease the tension between us. I can't stress enough that we'd like to avoid a conflict between our two nations at all cost."

"Forgive us, but what Non Aggression Pact are you referring to? The Non Aggression Pact we held with former Caucasia had been cancelled by your nation hasn't it? As regards improving diplomatic relations it is certainly a challenging prospect considering the overtly hostile policies your government has been holding against the Kingdom. The recent European declaration for an example and several associated comments levelled against the Kingdom. You spoke of goodwill earlier. Perhaps some may be reciprocated as well," KP Varma replied.

"We are being hostile? Your government has been hostile towards the Empire, since the beginning. Playing kingmaker in Europe, opening the borders to Kazakhstani rebels, and even going as far as to threaten war during the rebel uprising in Kazakhstan. In regards to the recent activities in Europe, we are standing by an ally. Do we plan to act? It fully depends on you. However, the point remains. If you wish to work towards a compromise. We are here to do so. If you don't have any plans to do so, then I see no point in this meeting."

"The Kingdom of Cochin has made several overtures of peace to Dalmatia, all of them rebuked by you and you accuse us of hostility? Kazakhstan and the people of Kazakhs have a close affinity in the hearts of the people of Cochin and we are to stand silent while you conduct oppression against them, though we are gladdened by recent news from your nation where the people of Kazakhs are being treated better. As regards Europe, like you we had only been supporting our ally, the former United States of the Islands. We are amenable to a compromise but as is said a bridge has to go both ways. What do you suggest?"

"The Kazakhs were never oppressed under our rule. If so, we'd like for you to provide examples. Kazakhstan enjoys more freedoms than the normal provincial sector in Dalmatia. However, besides that, I do suggest that we begin communicating more often. As I suggested before, an economic treaty would be a first step, and it'd benefit us both."

"Establishing diplomatic communication on an inter governmental level would certainly be a step forward. However we feel the need for more confidence building measures from either side before establishing any sort of economic agreement."

An economic agreement would be a large step, but sometimes large steps are needed to move forward. Our side is very open to such an agreement. Of course if you aren't, we understand. We can just go forward with the inter governmental relations."

"You must understand the most recent acts of hostility by Dalmatia against the Kingdom certainly does not merit a move as profound as an economic agreement. Years of near hostility and mutual antagonism have played their part in creating an atmosphere of distrust towards Dalmatia in Cochin. As we said to attempt a start in improving relations a series of confidence building measures would be required as also concrete proof that Dalmatia is indeed interested in friendly relations with Cochin. Diplomacy is after all not based on one meeting but a series of actions. The measure of CBMs from Cochin side can be measured from now on by the completely neutral stance we would be taking regarding Dalmatia, an attempt to move from the antagonistic policies we have followed for some time. If we see that corresponding moves are seen from Dalmatia an atmosphere conducive to improving relations would be possible."

Stahl nodded, "I do agree with your assessment, as the same can be said about Cochin in Dalmatia. Therefore, I believe we should move forward in a series of dialogue and exchanges, which can reduce the number of misconceptions between our two countries, increase our understanding of each other’s security concerns, and build confidence between our two defense establishments to avoid military accidents and miscalculations. It'll be a long road and one of hard work, but it can be achieved."
