From: Hungarian Provisional Government

 

CC: British Cabinet

Subject: Diplomatic discussion

 

Hungary thanks Great Britain and Northern Ireland for their warm welcome and congratulations.

 

We look forward to beginning cordial diplomatic relations between our two nations, and welcome Great Britain & Northern Ireland to send an ambassador to our capital and pick out an embassy in our capital, so long as you don't mind that it is currently under renovations.  Renovations are on schedule to be completed within 30 days.

 

Hungary will also send along it's an ambassador to Great Britain in a week or two, after elections have concluded and the new government officials have replaced the provisionally appointed government.

A reply would be sent back to the Hungarians quickly, without fail.

Subject: RE: Diplomatic discussion

 

Thank you for getting to me. We are delighted at this opportunity to establish a dialogue between our nations.

 

We will of course send an ambassador to your country within the day. Any ongoing construction works will be of no object to our discussions.

 

As Richard would be needed for France, Michael Temple would be selected to go. A young, ambitious and driven ambassador, he could speak well for the Federation. His plane would leave a day after Richard's and go straight to the Hungarian capital.

*The provisional government has appointed an ambassador to Great Britain, who just moments ago has arrived at the airport in London in a private government jet.  After a few moments, he disembarks from the jet and looks around a moment for the Great Britain representative's who have been sent to greet him there.*

The Hungarian ambassador would be met straight off the plane and politely directed into a government vehicle ready to take him to an embassy building in the centre of the city. Once there, he would be met by none other than the Chancellor himself.

 

William extended a hand. "Good afternoon Mr...forgive me, my secretary did not mention your name and I haven't had time to read the required dossier. My name is William Prescott, I'm the Chancellor. Please, your embassy is this way. I realise this is somewhat unusual but as the first foreign diplomatic representative sent to my country in rather a long time, I felt it appropriate to come and meet you personally."

Thank you for meeting me personally and for the warm reception, Chancellor Prescott.  I fully meant to send you my dossier before I arrived (ooc: I'll see if I can come up with a good Hungarian name for the ambassador), but it's been very hectic lately.  I am sure you heard about the assassination of one of our government members, and the attempted assassination in Yugoslavia of one of their government officials, correct?

 

In any case, the Hungarian & Slovakian government are greatly looking forward to friendly diplomatic relations with Great Britain & Ireland, as well as the strong possibility of trade and trade agreements with Great Britain & Ireland.

The two men walked through a set of heavy wooden doors that led to the Hungarian section of the European Diplomatic Unity building. A long corridor stretched out before them with spotless floor-to-ceiling frosted-glass windows every ten yards, providing a degree of privacy for the offices that lay beyond them. There were four such offices in total on this corridor, all at the disposal of the Hungarian government as diplomatic ties strengthened. William strode forward and opened the first one on his right. Inside the walls were painted a light green colour, adorned with sconce lights and in some parts the Hungarian national flag. Bullet-shaped windows on the other side of the room faced out towards the river Thames and the numerous boats milling through its calm waters.

 

Chancellor Prescott's face had a look of concern etched upon it. "Attempted assassination you say? I'm afraid I have had no such news delivered to me. It concerns me greatly however that such an event has taken place. Perhaps as our relations improve, we may work out a security agreement. I can certainly see this as being something my security services could look into."

 

The Chancellor took a moment to reach into a small refrigerator under one of the desks in the office and retrieved two bottles of chilled mineral water, offering one to the Hungarian ambassador before twisting off the cap on the other and taking a long gulp. The water was refreshing and gave him a moment to think about the suggestion the ambassador made.

 

Eventually he nodded. "I believe that is agreeable. What kind of resources would you be interested in trading? You should inquire with Minister O'Mahoney as to the specifics of that, although I believe we possess significant reserves of Shale gas and coal. We also experienced a boost in aluminium manufacturers this year, if that is of interest to you."

 

William took another long gulp of water whilst he waited for the Hungarian's response.

Our main resources are iron and wheat, though are nation is also well known for our manufacture and exports of automobiles and electronics.  

 

We ofcourse also manufacture other items as well, like most other nations.  Food, beer, liquor, furniture, jewelry, lumber, books, pharmaceuticals, tobacco products, fireworks, textiles, clothing, etc.

William nodded once more as he replaced the offered bottle of water in the refrigerator. "I see. Well I'm sure we can work out those details soon. The Foreign Affairs Ministry will draft a treaty and forward it to your...provisional government. On that point, has there been any further news as to the type of government my country can expect to be dealing with?"

Political parties have started to form, and a Constitutional Committee will be formed very soon.

In any case, it will be a democratic republic regardless of who wins elections or what the Constitutional Committee may decide. It is pretty much a mandate, anything less would most likely cause. A lot of unrest, which nobody in the provisional government wants.

It is also pretty much a mandate that their will either be a President or Prime Minister, and a legislature, national congress, or a parliament.

 

Unofficially, it appears to be leaning towards a parliament in early talks.

It is almost certain we will be a defensive-oriented nation.

As for capitalist, socialist, communist, secular, etc, that will be up to the Hungarian voters and to the Constitutional Committee to decide. Elections are planed to be held within 15 days.

Chancellor Prescott found himself nodding again, almost absent-mindedly, his eyes focused on the floor. He mentally shook himself and looked the Hungarian diplomat in the face. William checked his watch and noted the time. Time to move this along. "I see. Well it pleases me that your country is very close to forming a new, strong government." He finished off the last of the water and deposited it in a nearby floor bin. "My apologies, if you'll excuse me I have some additional diplomatic business to attend to, it's related to something much closer to home. Please remain here for the time being, I'll have the Vice-Chancellor come along shortly and present a suitable treaty format for you to examine. Thank you."

 

William shook the Hungarian's hand quite hard and patted him once on the shoulder before exiting the office and making all haste to his car outside the building.
