In the spirit of peace and collaboration, and as a founding member of PEPTO, another bloc devoted to peace, we congratulate these nations for coming together, and submit our application towards membership. The name of the organization of peace is not what is important, but the spirit behind it. An equal and free Europe is a goal every European nation can aspire towards.

"Another organization of nations claming to do what is best for all of Europe. So now instead of being split in half, Europe is now split into three. Yeah, benefit Europe by dividing it more. That's real beneficial."

~Political pundit commenting on the European Cooperation Organization, a known detractor of both the WEU and PEPTO.

There was no official comment from Australia, merely a private note expressing congratulations to this new organization, and expressing wishes that it be successful in its endeavors.
