Des Szarka would find his appointment as Saxon ambassador gave him access to a very nice embassy within the city of Dresden. His counterpart would be taking the next flight to Bratislava, Hungary-Slovakia, where he hoped to find as nice an embassy waiting.

"Yes, indeed.  We are in the process of finishing up renovations of buildings that we will provide as embassies, both in Bratislava as well as in Debrecen.  Feel free to move in to any of those building you would like as your embassy.

 

I have been told that renovations are nearly complete and should not take longer than 2  weeks to finish completely."

"After speaking with madam President, I have been authorized to inform you that Saxony is interested in pursuing non-aggression with Hungary-Slovakia. However, in regards to the economic/trade agreement, we are interested in what specific provisions you were looking to ratify between our governments. We see potential in these agreements to help work towards the two main goals of the new Saxon government, which are increased trade and the prevention of war on Saxon soil. But the lack of borders and/or a suitable land route between our nations limits the type of agreements that we can enter into, as any Saxon goods would have to travel through another nation to get to your markets, and vice versa. So, again, I must insist that you expand on your ideas. But you can consider the NAP signed."

Excellent, our government will be very pleased.

A Economic & Trade Treaty would most likely increase the amount of goods traded between our nations, while greatly decreasing taxes, tariffs, duties, and custom fees on each other's imports and exports. For example, Saxon cars imported to Hungary-Slovakia and Hungarian cars exported to Saxony.

"Before I am able to sign the Non-Aggression Pact, there is one small stipulation we insist upon.

Although Hungary-Slovakian has absolutely no plans to offensively attack either Alvonia or Saxony, since Alvonia is a militarily aggressive regime, we do ask that for at least the next 4 months, Saxony refrain from signing anything more than a Non Aggression Pact or Trade agreement with Alvonia.

A stipulation of the Hungary-Slovakia Saxony NAP is that if at any time during the following 120 days, Saxony signs any sort of military pact with Alvonia, or gives Alvonia any military aid or assistance in that time frame, it will immediately and automatically void this NAP.

Again, I stress and reassure Saxony, Hungary-Slovakia has absolutely no plans or any desire to, now or in the future to pose any threat to Saxony, hence our NAP proposal.

Likewise, Hungary-Slovakia has no plans or desire to pose any mor threat to Alvonia, unless Alvonia continues to make claims to Snowhaven, to move militarily into or against Snowhaven, or Alvonia first engages Hungary or it's Eastern Bloc allies.

After 4 months, this stipulation will expire, and Saxony can sign anything and everything that it wishes with Alvonia, if it wishes to do so then.

We do realize this is a big stipulation to request, but feel that since Alvonian is an extremely aggressive nation and is currently threatening Snowhaven as well as Hungary-Slovakia, Belarus, and Romania, that such a temporary stipulation is a fair one to request.

Unless, of course, we have Saxony's guarantee that it will not militarily aid Alvonia against any Eastern Bloc nation and will stay neutral in the Snowhaven stand-off? Then, of course, such a stipulation would not be necessary."

"You can speak easy, my friend..." said the Minister, pouring a glass of poppy tea from an expensive tea kettle sitting on the table between them. He poured some tea into the diplomat's glass before smiling, taking a cup-large gulp, and continuing to speak.

"We understand that it is not your intention to tell us what we can or cannot do that has brought this matter to your lips, but because, like all nations, Hungary-Slovakia does not wish to preclude itself from defending its interests and allies by signing a treaty with us. We would only ever defend a government which understands these principles, and so I am happy that you've brought these concerns to our attention now, rather than waiting and discussing them ex post facto."

"However," he said with a noticeable, albeit small, raise in the tone of his voice, "we do not understand why it is in the interests of Hungary-Slovakia to go to war over a conflict brewing between the Cisalpine Republic and the Alvonians. While we would certainly never support the invasion of an allied power, even of a lesser but still significant treaty tie such as a non-aggression pact, we don't wish to concern ourselves with Italian, Swiss, or French matters. For all we care, the territory of the late Snow Haven could have fell into Hell itself, so long as the demons did not march in our direction after climbing from the pit. For what reason does your government take such interest in the outcome of this dispute?"

He poured himself another glass of tea, with eye contact and a light smile signaling that he was finished speaking.

"Thank you for your understanding, Minister.

Hungary-Slovakia is concerned with Alvonia and Snow Haven because this is not the first time Alvonia has tried to expand its borders through military action, nor the first time it has acted aggressively with Hungary-Slovakia and it's allies.

Just a month ago Alvonia invaded former Brandenburg, land that is now the nation of Saxony, your nation. When Hungary-Slovakia and it's allies intervened to try to ensure that Alvonia would never again be able to invade, Alvonia refused, forcing the Eastern Bloc to become involved militarily. This war resulted in over 50,000 deaths and the complete nuclear destruction of Budapest, which we were only very recently able to finish cleaning and clearing.

A month before that, when we were a part of the Commonwealth of Defense and Trade, a peaceful and purely defensive alliance, Alvonia tried to threaten our nation by performing military drills only one hundred miles from our borders, all over a peaceful maritime mission performed near Hawaii.

Now, once again, Alvonia is making claims, this time in Snowhaven, in an attempt to illegally expand its borders. We have every reason to believe Alvonia is planning to mobilize its military into Snowhaven to take it by force. To allow Alvonia to once again resort to aggression and invasion would be to let those 50,000 who died a month ago to have died in vain.

Hungary-Slovakia will not let Alvonia take land that does not rightfully belong to them, and will not let Alvonia once again use military aggression to try to take Smowhaven for itself.

Further, Hungary-Slovakia is firmly and unwaveringly against any imperialism in our region. Alvonia claiming Snowhaven and threatening to send its military into a peaceful and neutral Smpwhaven is clear and blatant imperialism. Hungary-Slovakia can, must, and is taking a strong stand against any such Alvonian imperialism, as is Belarus and Romania - politically, and though we very much wish to avoid it, forcefully, if Alvonia forces are hand to do so."

"Hmmm... you make quite a strong case there. Given the Hungarian support of the military action that led to the expulsion of invading Alvonians from land we now rightfully administer, it would be foolish for us to oppose a similar peacekeeping mission aimed at letting another people be able to govern themselves. You can rest assured that if the military action is indeed warranted, the Saxon state will not work in the interests of the Alvonian invaders against our friends to the east. We, like yourselves, are committed to anti-imperialism in Europe and around the world. Perhaps it would be best if we were to help ensure European stability through a mutual defense pact? Needless to say, however, we agree to your terms and welcome non-aggression with the Hungarians and Slovakians."

"I and the Hungary-Slovakian government are greatly pleased to hear that, indeed."

*Ambassador Szarka smiles,*

I believe a mutual defense pact between Hungary-Slovakia and Saxony would be a grand and most welcomed idea indeed, and have been granted the authorization to sign such a pact with Saxony.*

*Ambassador Szarka gives the Minister a firm and warm handshake.*

An AES-256-encrypted message was sent by private network to Hungary.

It appears that the Alvonians and Romanians may be at war once more, and it seems that the battlefield they've chosen is your nation. If you want to stop a war from happening on your doorstep, you might want to sign an NAP with Alvonia. That way, there would be no need for military build-up on your border, and the Romanian troops that have been requisitioning food in your countryside can finally go home.

Because we no longer share a land border with you, it would be impossible for us to defend you in the case of an attack from Alvonia. While we share a defense pact, we just want to remind you that geographical considerations make it hard for us to fully honor a defense pact with a land-locked nation. In our opinion, it would be prudent for your government to find a way to gain a port with a land border to your nation. The Baltic would be ideal, unless you want to move through Austria and Italy to Slovenia. It would be the quickest and most straightforward route for us to take, and it would finally allow us to have a trade agreement through the sea.
