Upon arriving in Berlin, the Prussian delegation would be welcomed by the Ceremonial Honor Guard of the German Heer. Afterwards, they were driven to the Reich Chancellery where Reichspräsident Jorhan Stahl was waiting at the entrance.

"Welcome to Berlin. It's an honor to have you here." Stahl then led the group of men to conference room where the meeting would take place. "Please have a seat and relax. I'd like to reiterate that it's a pleasure having you here. I do hope we can make some progress today."

"It is an honor to finally be back in Berlin," Tolkien replied as he followed Stahl to the conference room. His two guards, in ceremonial Prussian blues, remained by the door when they entered. "It's as splendid as it has ever been. I haven't visited the city since before I was Chancellor, and before the disbandment of the Germanic Union, but I'm not surprised to see the new administration has been doing its utmost to preserve Germania's gemstone." He took a seat at the conference table opposite Stahl and laced his fingers together on the table. "So, Herr Stahl, where would you like to begin?"

"We have been neighbors for awhile. We share the same culture, and we share the same historical backgrounds. In my opinion, it doesn't benefit us to be apart. Therefore, I propose that we sign a treaty. A treaty that will unite our two countries and push us into the future together."

Konstantin couldn't help but chuckle. "Straight to the point, eh? I like that, it pisses me off when members of our [i]Reichstag[/i] beat around the bush. Once, Prussia stood beside Germania and Austria, tied together by the [i]Brüderpakt[/i]. Although the regimes that signed that deal are no more, the Prussian people still view yours as brothers...close cousins, in the case of eastern Germany." The chancellor laughed lightly once more. "I strongly agree with your sentiments, but I must know what you had in mind before I give my official approval. The [i]Reichstag[/i] indicated they would favor up to an MDoAP with Germany, plus a clause promoting German-Prussian trade."

Stahl smiled, "It would seem that your Reichstag has the same idea. We would be open to signing a MDoAP with your country. As you have stated, we are brothers, and it wouldn't benefit us to drift apart. In regards to economics, we'd be open to putting such a clause in the agreement. It'll do nothing but promote good-will and trust between the citizens of both our countries. In addition, military cooperation should also be a top priority. If necessary, we can supply your country with new armaments, and provide the necessary training to use the weapons efficiently."

"That is acceptable. Our armed forces have been making use of primarily NATO equipment, though we use a number of weapons and vehicles attained from the Germanic Union's stockpiles in Preußen and Memelgebiet. We would be interested in purchasing a few samples of your armaments for testing purposes, and perhaps more, should they prove more effective than our current equipment. Do you have a rough draft of this agreement prepared, or do we need to put it together?"

"We'd be happy to give you samples of all our equipment, so you can run the proper testing. After testing, just let us know what fit your specifications, and we'll begin arms shipments. In regards to a draft, we do have one prepared." Stahl grabbed his dossier and pulled out a draft of the proposed agreement. He then handed it to Konstantin.

If either one of the undersigning nation conducts espionage on the other signatory, this pact will be revoked immediately following a 24-hour truce. If either nation bound to this pact conducts espionage on a non-signing nation, it is grounds for revocation, but such action may or may not be taken by the other signatory’s leaders.

Konstantin scanned the treaty and set it down on the table. "I find no problem with what is currently contained in this draft, but I would like to make a few additions, if you don't mind." He took a pen from his jacket and wrote down a few additions to the treaty before handing it back to Stahl. "How does that strike you?"

After the adjustments were made by Konstantin, Stahl took a moment to read over them. "I have no problems with these adjustments." He smiled and grabbed a pen from his assistant and signed the document.

Konstantin signed the treaty as well and had a copy sent back to Prussia for approval by King Alaric and the Reichstag, which voted 68-23 in favor of the bill, with 9 legislators abstaining.
