Addressed To the Foreign Ministry of the Bulgarian nation, and her President, Sr. General Vladimir Fedorovych Bogomolov

"It is with great joy to be able to see the Bulgarians stand on their own after such a cataclysm, and we in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia are delighted to see brothers doing well enough so far. Both of our nations and its people share a long and storied history together, positive relations being the norm than negative ones.

That being said, we simply request the opportunity to resume those relations and move forward as brothers once more. To that end, I ask if it is acceptable to schedule a visit to your country and personally re-establish our ties as brothers.

I shall await your reply."

Respectfully,
HM Kralj Dragojev Belojevic, Lord Protector of the Albanian and Romanian People

To: HM Kralj Dragojev Belojevic, Kingdom of Yugoslavia

Fr: Executive Council of the State Law and Order Restoration and General Pacification and National Development Council (SLORGPNDC), Zapadnaya
 
On behalf of President Gen. Bogomolov, we acknowledge the long and often intertwined histories of both our peoples and express the sincere desire that diplomatic ties between our countries may be reformed and strengthened. The previous ties between our peoples have often been marked by sincere friendship and cooperation. We express our optimism that future ties may be forged on this basis.
 
We also acknowledge the request of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia to resume our diplomatic ties and we welcome such a resumption with opened arms. Therefore we hereby extend an official invitation from the President of Zapadnaya for a delegation from Yugoslavia to visit Sofia at your earliest convenience to discuss the situation.

"It pleases us tremendously to hear the words of an invitation to renew and resume our diplomatic relationship as brothers in the Peninsula. Seeing as we are neighbors, I and those willing will be visiting Sofia on an official capacity within two days and we're hoping for this to be the renewal of a gracious relationship.

To that end, what area of Sofia should our delegation arrive in?"

Respectfully,
HM Kralj Dragojev Belojevic, Lord Protector of the Albanian and Romanian People

The Zapadnayan government would transmit (via classified and secure communication) information to the Yugoslav government requesting that their delegation arrive at the Sofia International Airport from which the delegation would be brought to the Parliament building for the official meeting after the official welcome ceremony at the airport.

The Great Council of the Yugoslavian Kingdom would transmit the information to the Zapadnayan government, specifically in regards to the date of their arrival to the Sofia International Airport, and thanking the government for the provided transportation to the building where the meeting would be taking place.

The Yugoslav delegation would be met at the airport by Vice-President Dragomirov and a military honor guard. After an official welcome and the playing of both national anthems, the Yugoslav King would be invited to inspect the assembled guard of honor. Afterwards, the Yugoslav delegation would be led to a waiting convoy of vehicles which would transport them to the Parliament building for the official meeting.
 
En route, the Yugoslav delegation would likely see a number of Yugoslav flags being flown along the route to the Parliament building. Upon their arrival they would be escorted into the main conference room where President Bogomolov would be waiting. After greeting the Yugoslav delegation, the President would state:
 
[i]“On behalf of the government of Zapadnaya, we welcome the opportunity to forge new ties with the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. May there once again be a strong bond of brotherhood between our peoples.”[/i]

Dragojev Dusan Belojevic smiled widely at the Zapadnayan President in response.

"And on behalf of the people and Kingdom of Yugoslavia, we welcome the opportunity to forge a new and everlasting tie with the Presidential Republic of Zapadnaya."

With his statement, the Sovereign of the united Yugoslavian peoples would take the offered seat, one of his diplomatic aides placing a laptop in front of him, fully logged in as the other aide would place a folder filled with documents.

"Now, considering that we're neighbors and brothers in all but name, I want to assure you and your people that the Kingdom has absolutely zero intentions of seeking to expand or annex the Zapadnayan nation, President."

[i]“We thank you for the statement outlining the fact Kingdom of Yugoslavia holds no intentions to infringe upon the sovereignty or territorial integrity of Zapadnaya. We also state that at no time was our government concerned about the prospect of a Yugoslav infringement upon our nation’s sovereignty. Likewise we wish to use this opportunity to state the longstanding position of Zapadnaya that we have no desire to infringe upon the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia or any other nation in the region.
 
While we have both expressed a willingness to solidify the ties between our nations, we have yet to expand in detail on what this would consist of. Therefore I would like to ask, how do you see the evolution of the diplomatic relationship between our two nations over the short and medium terms?[/i]- President Bogomolov.

The Kralj of Yugoslavia would nod before typing something on his laptop, the keys being almost silent as the Sovereign kept his gaze on the Bulgarian people's current President, "It's pleasing to hear such a thing," he trailed off as he finished whatever he was typing on the laptop.

"As for details, that would depend entirely on the desires of the Bulgarian people, President," he remarked as a start, "The Kingdom of Yugoslavia would most likely see a simple trade pact in conjunction with military non-aggression between our two states."

"For the long term, We see ourselves standing as brothers in arms for the defense of each other and defending the Balkans together from imperialistic tendencies," he finished before adding, "Hopefully not the latter in any time soon."

"It appears that we have significant agreement regarding the short and medium term direction of our bilateral diplomatic relationship. I believe that a non aggression pact including a trade provision provides an important foundation upon which further ties may be built. 

 

May I present the following draft text for your consideration."-President Bogomolov

 


 

Yugoslav-Zapadnayan Pact of Non-Aggression & Trade

 
Article I: Sovereignty
 
The Kingdom of Yugoslavia (hereafter referred to as ‘Yugoslavia’) and the Zapadnayan Republic (hereafter referred to as ‘Zapadnaya’) shall retain their sovereignty. The signatories of this pact hereby agree to recognize the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the other signatory and shall agree not to take any action to undermine the aforementioned sovereignty or territorial integrity, nor shall either signatory permit their territory to be used for such a purpose.
 
Article II: Non-Aggression
 
Both signatories, Yugoslavia and Zapadnaya, shall agree not to undertake any act of aggression, be it overt or covert in nature, against the other signatory. Acts of aggression include, but are by no means limited to: military action, espionage, blockades and embargos.
 
Article III: Trade
 
Both signatories pledge to encourage increased trade and economic cooperation where such cooperation is possible. Yugoslavia and Zapadnaya shall agree to identify economic sectors in which tariffs on products from the other signatory may be reduced. Signatories are highly encouraged, though by no means obligated, to lower trade tariffs in the aforementioned economic sectors.
 
Article IV: Further Cooperation
 
Both signatories shall explore areas of further cooperation between themselves and shall reserve the right to amend this agreement (on the basis of mutual approval) to include such bilateral cooperation.
 
Article V: Cancellation
 
Should either signatory feel that this pact is no longer in the best interests of their nation, they may cancel the pact provided that the notice of the intent to cancel the pact is communicated simultaneously to the other signatories embassy and government. Once the notice of the intent to cancel the pact is received, there shall be a 7 day (OOC: 48 hours IRL) period before the treaty shall be void. During this period, both signatories remain bound by the terms of the pact.

The Kralj held the document, carefully reading over its text of the draft before a soft smile grew on his face, the Sovereign of the Kingdom smiling back at the Zapadnayan President, "I do believe that this text works perfectly for the renewal of relations between our two great countries."

"Excellent. I'll add my signature to the finalized draft of the treaty. Once both of our signatures are affixed, the treaty will enter into force. Are there any other issues that your Excellency wishes to discuss?"-President Bogomolov

The Kralj held the document once more, a simple pen within his hand as with a graceful flourish, the Sovereign of the Kingdom entered his signature onto the document before the Kralj thought on the President's question for a few moments. "I imagine we might discuss places where each of our country lacks in some form and hopefully come with solutions to them together."

With the treaty signed, the Zapadnayan copy would be transmitted to the Office of the Presidency with a note affirming it's entry into force. After pausing for a moment, President Bogomolov replied:

 

"Your Majesty, I am not certain I understand precisely what you mean when you refer to places that our countries lack? Perhaps you could elaborate on this point?"-President Bogomolov

The Kralj sighed before he raised a hand, the Monarch rubbing the bridge of his nose more so from exhaustion before the Sovereign turned his gaze back onto the Bulgarian President, "It's quite common knowledge that outside of the energy sources of coal and the smattering of oil within our respective countries that the Balkan Peninsula as a whole is scarce of energy resources. Metals are slightly more common than the aforementioned resources with the former individual countries of the Kingdom having to export metals into the country."

 

Dragojev smiled tiredly at the President, "It's this type of discussion I was referring to, President, in order to hopefully help both of our countries forward."

"Certainly. I have no objections to discussing in greater detail areas of possible cooperation. As you mentioned energy resources in the region, on the Zapadnayan side, at least where energy production is concerned, we are expecting to reduce energy generation from coal and oil to less than 2% of total energy production within three years. As such, our country is not heavily impacted by the scarcity of energy resources in the region.

 

One of our primary concerns however is the need to establish alternative overland transport routes in order to reduce our heavy reliance on the Bosphorus Straits. Perhaps our dialogue can begin with discussions in the energy and transport sphere?"-President Bogomolov

Dragojev raised a hand and cradled his chin, thinking over what his fellow cultural brother asked. The benefits for the two countries would increase by significant leaps if each state cooperated on those spheres, trade and industrial innovation would also increase with the increase in cooperation. The Kralj nodded at his colleague, "Has the Zapadnayan government thought of of using the Danube river to offset use or reliance on the Bosphorus?" the Sovereign of Yugoslavia asked.

“Our government has considered expanding the use of the Danube as an alternative trade route, however it is not practical to shift extensive trade to that route since the Danube also forms the international border between Zapadnaya and Romania. A shift to trade via the Danube would only be secure and practical if it is bolstered by trade via land as well.”-President Bogomolov

The Kralj nodded at the President's words, "Thanks in part to our new treaty, I do believe that Zapadnaya could shift slowly into a transition to see which water route would work more effectively, although I do have a feeling that bolstered trade on the Danube would lead to greater profits for our own people."

[i]“Certainly. We feel that transitioning to a combination of trade routes would better enable Zapadnaya to weather economic shocks while providing an economic boost to both of our nations. In fact, if our governments could agree to some kind of uniform administrative and customs procedures governing goods traversing our borders I have no doubt that there could be benefits.
 
In an ideal situation, we would wish to utilize both the Danube and the Bosphorus as key trade routes alongside established overland routes as well. The use of overland trade routes, in conjunction with the Danube, could be an area of cooperation that could be pursued by our nations.”[/i]-President Bogomolov

The Kralj grinned at the Zapadnayan President, "Taking into consideration our recent treaty between our countries and taking into account that I'm the absolute power within the Kingdom, I can ease and make the transition easy within our border to ensure that the Zapadnayan trade is made smooth as it can be over overland routes."

 

"That said, I'm sure my Councilors who are in charge of the areas involved with trade and business can see to it as soon as they know. It wouldn't be a smart idea for myself to write something down since I do believe our two countries have different laws with regards to business, transportation and finances that would be best suited for our subjects or fellow colleagues in your case, President, to handle it once they're made known of the 'move'."

"I don't believe there is anything else that currently needs to be discussed or hashed out," the Kralj answered with, doing his best to think on anything that might have been missed but not coming up with anything.

"The Kingdom politely seeks an audience with the current government of Zapadnaya, for we wish to discuss matters of regional interest and stability amidst the current 'aggression' started by a few of our neighbors.

 

We hope to have a frank yet polite meeting with our friends and brothers."
 
Respectfully,
HM Kralj Dragojev Belojevic

The following private message would be sent to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in response:

 

 

To: Kingdom of Yugoslavia

Fr: Office of the President of Zapadnaya

Re: Meeting Request

 

The government of Zapadnaya acknowledges receiving your request for a meeting. Given the still developing situation, and in keeping with internal protocols, President Elena Dobreva is currently unable to meet with you at this time. However, should the Yugoslav government not object, we are prepared to receive a Yugoslav representative who will meet with Foreign Minister Petrova to discuss the situation.
