The Treaty of Apeldoom

Preamble

The following document is a bilateral agreement between the sovereign nations of Lübeck and the Revolutionary Socialist Syndicate of the Netherlands.

The two parties do hereby affirm their desire to live in peace and work in cooperation with one another, and do hereby forgive the mistakes of the past and agree to look only to the future of each nation.

Article I:

The signing parties do hereby agree to never engage in hostile activities against one another. The parties do swear that they shall never take aggressive action against the opposite party, and shall abide by this clause above all others.

Article II:

The signing parties do hereby agree to share all information that may relate to the well-being and safety of the opposite party; all other forms of intelligence and cooperation are also encouraged between the signatories. They also swear to never attempt to illegally collect intelligence upon the other party.

Article III:

Section 1

The signatories swear that they shall come to the aid of the other party by all means: financial, military, or other means, should it be requested by the opposite party that aid be provided, should the opposite party come under the assault of a third party. If it is not requested, it becomes optional.

Section 2

All portions of the empire of both signatories shall be considered under attack, this includes overseas territories, and should those territories come under attack, this treaty shall become activated, regardless of how they are incorporated into the attacked party. If it is claimed, it is attacked.

Article IV:

"This treaty is certainly surprising, and a sign that certainly old enemies can become friends. But what is to prevent abuse of this by one signatory claiming the territory of a third sovereign nation and then asking for help in a so-called 'defensive' war?"

That would be an aggressive action, which entails optional assistance.

"I am not accusing you of attempting abuse. Neither nation has ever truly abused their treaties. But this portion does imply otherwise."

"I trust in the leaders of Lubeck and our own nation to use their common sense in what makes up aggression versus defense. Even if it is claimed, if the other nation does not recognize the claim, then they will likely sit out."
