As one of several members of the coalition which participated in the war against Tahoe, though we did not intend it, we had a hand in the full scale destruction of the republic and the resulting eventuality of disorder, chaos, and general instability which now seems to be present in the former territory. We know that intervention by external powers in this matter, including ourselves, would only add fuel to the fire and in all likelihood proliferate contagion a across the whole of North America, if not the world. So we have three Announcements to make on this matter. First, we will maintain neutrality in this matter in so far as it remains an internal dispute between the various governments of Tahoe. North and South Tahoe are not two separate nations, but one territory and one people being torn and split apart by two different camps. This struggle needs to take its course, and it is our hope that the nations of the world will let this play out, however should anyone take advantage of Tahoe in its weakened state we do intend to step in to secure it from opportunists. Second representatives of Greater Pacifica have met with representatives of North Tahoe and have come to an understanding. With that we would like to extend our recognition to the existing government of North Tahoe as the representative of the Tahoan people, and the most honest broker on their behalf. It is our hope that they can bring stability back to the territory as they did for many years before the war, and if at all possible that this can be achieved through diplomacy. Nonetheless we now respect their discretion on internal matters, and hope that an eventual reconciliation between our two nations can be possible. Third and finally we would like to announce a bilateral pact of friendship between Tahoe and Pacifica. Though we will very likely remain allies through the bloc APPLE, we felt that an individual treaty between the two nations would be an important step in the re-construction of longterm relations.
