"The French Seventh Republic is proud to look back upon how far our relations with Persia have come over the last decade, largely in part due to the DEU's involvement. Our nation will certainly support a visa upgrade for citizens of Persia as per the reciprocity clause, and we call upon our other friends and colleagues among the DEU to do the same. France would also like to suggest a new electronic monitoring system be deployed along the Near East-European pipeline, which would thus improve its security and aid in defending it from threats."

The French Seventh Republic calls for a meeting of the DEU Assembly.

We propose that the DEU Foreign Aid Council provide assistance to the CNIP government of the Central African Republic, and areas of the DRC under Confederation control. This is vital to suppressing the spread of Ebola, which the ICC is believed to have weaponized.

Ayes: New Metropolitan France.

Statement by Constan├ža Rial,
LM-DEU Ambassador | Strasbourg

I would like to use this opportunity to first of all thank all of you for your hospitality and cooperation with the Lusophone Mission to the DEU as an observant state. Unfortunately, this will be the last time I will be speaking to this Assembly in my capacity as the diplomat for the LM-DEU.

I have accepted President Sara Palveiro's graceful nomination for me to become the Lusophone Republic's chief diplomat, the Foreign Secretary of the Minister of Foreign Affairs. And so, I hope to be working with you all again once I assume my new job.

The deputy Ambassador for the LM-DEU will be assuming the lead for the Lusophone Republic's mission as Acting-Ambassador. Our important work of cooperation continues.

I come here for the final time in my capacity, to also announce to the Assembly that President Sara Palveiro will be visiting the DEU Assembly by the end of this month for a speech to the Assembly. I invite you all to be present. Thank you.

Remarks by President Sara Palveiro
to a Session of the DEU Assembly | Strasbourg

Thank you very much for the opportunity to speak, and also for the condolences your nations have expressed to Lusophone.

Just a few days ago the Norte region of Lusophone and Lisboa -- a very beautiful city -- were viciously attacked in an unprovoked act of war. Hundreds of men, women, and children of every race, religion, and ethnicity are lost. Among these were people from two European nations. To their representatives here today, I offer my condolences to you as well on behalf of all Lusophines who share this loss with you. This was the deadliest attack -- terrorist attack -- in Lusophone's history. This was not just an attack on the City of Lisboa or the four districts in the Norte region or on the Lusophone Republic however. It was a direct assault on the founding principles of our shared continent itself.

These vicious attacks place in jeopardy the fabric of our civilization. Terrorism is based on the persistent and deliberate violation of our fundamental values. With bullets and bombs, terrorists deny the dignity of human life. Terrorism preys particularly on cultures and communities that practice liberty. Their targeting of innocent civilians mock the efforts of those who seek to live together in peace as neighbors.

I come here today with determination and resolve to ask for a response from your nations, your leaders and people, for your understanding and to stand with Lusophone of what needs to be done to remove the threat of terrorism that has arrived in our soil.

The strength of Lusophone's response will flow from the principles upon which we stand: our belief in God, our political freedom and our economic freedom -- that's what makes a Lusophine. Our belief in civilization and the rule of law, and respect for human life -- that's how you become a Lusophine. It's these very principles and the opportunities these principles give to so many to create a better life for themselves and their families that has unleashed that fighting, jaguar spirit.

Each of your nations, I'm certain, has contributed citizens to Lusophone. I believe I can take every one of you someplace in Lisboa or anywhere in Lusophone, and you can find someone from your country, someone from your village or town, that speaks your language and practices your religion. In each of your lands, there are many who are Lusophines in spirit by virtue of their commitment to our shared principles.

It's tragic and perverse that it's because of these very principles, particularly our religious, political, and economic freedoms, that we find ourselves under attack by terrorists. Our freedom threatens them, because they know if our ideas gain a foothold among their people, it will destroy their ambition. This rise that we've seen in terrorism, I believe, is in no small measure a response to the spread of these ideas of freedom and the rule of law. The terrorists strike out against innocent civilians and destroy human life in massive numbers in hopes to deter all of us from our pursuit and expansion of freedom and our values.

We must now act together to remove the clear and present danger posed by terrorism and terrorists. All of our nations must join together and hold accountable any country that supports or condones terrorism in our shared soil. We must ostracize any nation that supports this fundamentalist fringe socialist and communist extremism.

Now is the time for us to unite our strength to maintain peace and safety in our continent. The evidence of terrorism's brutality and inhumanity, of its contempt for life and the concept of peace has buried citizens who share the soil of Europe. Look at the destruction, the massive, senseless, cruel loss of human life, and then I ask you to look in your hearts and recognize that there is no room for neutrality on the issue of terrorism: You're either with civilization or with terrorists. On one side is freedom, justly earned individual success, the rule of law, and respect for human life; on the other, it's tyranny, a shared burden of hardship and poverty, and unjust murder. We're right and they're wrong. It's as simple as that.

Let those who say that we must understand the reasons for terrorism, come with me to the hundreds of funerals we're having throughout Lusophone and explain those insane maniacal reasons to the children who will grow up without fathers and mothers and to the parents who have had their children ripped from them for no reason at all. Instead, I ask each of you to allow me to say at those funerals that your nation stands with Lusophone in making a solemn promise and pledge that we will not allow breath to this fringe socialist extremism and the terrorists.

There's no excuse for mass murder, just as there's no excuse for genocide. Those who practice terrorism and murdering innocent civilians, lose any right to have their cause understood by decent people and lawful nations. We must draw a line. There's no moral way to sympathize with grossly immoral actions. And by so doing and by trying to do that, unfortunately, a fertile field has been created in which terrorism has grown.

I urge you to take a pledge of solidarity with Lusophone, against any individual, organization or even a government with an ideology that has inspired these terrorists. This is a clash of civilizations. A conflict between murderers and free society. This is not a question of retaliation or revenge. It's a matter of justice. The only acceptable result is the complete and total eradication of terrorism.

Let us be unified in our shared soil and ensure that we can continue to choose to live in freedom.

Thank you and God bless you.

DEU EIM Reform - Climate Stabilization Compact

"Europe has long championed environmental issues; the recent European Air Pollution Agency and earlier Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Homogenisation Committee and Rewilding Europe Initiative were brilliant ideas proposed by the Italians, the European Energy Scheme and Scientific Research Trust were initiatives formed by the Scandinavians and French, and France and Russia together with North America formed the Moscow Green Treaty. However, we must do more, especially to prevent and mitigate Climate Change specifically."

Provision I: EIM Carbon Trading Scheme

This provision will provide market incentives to enable a gradual shift towards the achievement of our goals. Revenue raised from the EIM CTS will immediately be reinvested into European companies as a subsidy to facilitate the transition away from non-renewable methods of production, and also act as a tool to boost employment and sustainable economic growth.

Provision II: Second EIM Common External Tariff - Environmental Externality Charge

Countries that trade with the EIM will be subject to an Environmental Externality Charge should they attempt to infringe upon European markets without taking steps to maintain sustainability and meet the targets of the Moscow Green Treaty. Revenue raised from the EIM EEC will be used by the DEU to create carbon sinks domestically and abroad.

Provision III: Refocusing of DEU PFZ towards sustainable agriculture

This will not require any additional funds, instead simply redirecting PFZ funds from high methane/carbon enterprises towards more efficient and sustainable farming.

Provision IV: Trans-Atlantic Cooperation

The Federative Union of North America has agreed to match the DEU's efforts, therefore meaning that they will not take advantage of our businesses during the transition period by supporting carbon leakage.

Projected Results:

2033: Reduce emissions by 20% of 1990 levels.
2043: Reduce emissions by 40% of 1990 levels.
2063: Reduce emissions by 80-90% of 1990 levels.

Ayes: France, Russia, Germany.

DEU-UR Space Debris Agreement

3rd February 2024

The following proposal seeks to agree in writing, an agreement between the DEU and the UR, to both commit to minimising the creation of space debris, whilst simultaneously committing to actively combatting existing space debris.

Space debris is one of the most prominent issues facing not just Europe and the ESA, but the global space industry. It is both strategically and economically important that outer space, particularly in earths nearest vicinity, remains a clear and safe space to ensure the future of space exploration and activity as well as preserving existing infrastructures in space such as the ISNS satellite navigation system.

Representatives from the UR are themselves strongly committed to this agreement, and have already made an agreement of a similar nature with the FSR, ensuring that the global space industry, despite being made of nations that may oppose each other and seek to jeopardise one another, will cooperate on the important issue of space debris, further revealing the importance of this agreement successfully passing.

Giorgio Saccoccia,
President of the Italian Space Agency

"The French Seventh Republic wishes to publish a refugee and asylum policy for our own nation, however in the process of developing this policy came to the realization that this could fundamentally impact the common external border policy and rights afforded to citizens of DEU members in the EIM zone. In effect; that if one nation, such as France, were to arbitrarily grant citizenship to vast numbers of migrants, this would immediately grant them the right to make use of EIM benefits. As such, before defining our own national refugee and asylum policy, we wish to find a European consensus on citizenship requirements before EIM benefits can be attained. Whether this is in the form of an extended period of years living in a country before being granted citizenship, or a fixed quota of refugees/asylum seekers per country per year to ensure numbers are sustainable across our continent, or a mix of both approaches. We suggest these ideas to this Assembly, but do not make a formal proposal for voting on at this stage as we wish to hear the thoughts of other ambassadors. Perhaps if you wish to speak on this issue, include the current citizenship and asylum requirements of your nation so that we may compare them to others in the DEU."

OOC: Please post how many years it takes to get citizenship in your country, whether this is applied to refugees/asylum seekers or if they are treated differently, and whether you have a limit on the number your nation accepts in a year.

(in Soviet Russia, citizenship gets you)

"The Soviet Union is committed to simplifying and improving the citizenship process for eligible people who wish to attain it. In the case of asylum seekers, if an individual arrives to any of the Union's territories or republics as a refugee, they are granted a temporary residency pass which lasts 6 months while the immigration authorities are working on the case. Should the individual be approved, they are granted a a indefinite stay card which lasts for about 4 years during which the person should demonstrate their willingness to live here. After that, they may apply for citizenship. So in conclusion, the process is:

temproary refugee card (6 months)>>>>>indefinite stay card (4 years of residence)>>>>>application for citizenship"

PostPosted: Sun Jul 28, 2019 11:23 pm
by United Democratic Christian States
We agree with the Russian government as their process is sound, so long as we can.

However we would like to expand and establish yearly quotas for the number of indefinite stay cards distributed by the entire EIM and by each individual country based on their population and likelyhood to attract refugees based on civil rights, economic status and geographical location.

For the entire EIM the GU would propose a quota of 500k refugees to be granted indefinite stay cards per year so that our immigration departments dont get overwhelmed but should Europe be called we can accommodate an acceptable amount of refugees from crisis around the world seeking a better future.

The GU would also like to propose an alteration of temporary refuge cards but we will do so at a later time (OOC I'm to tired)

The French Seventh Republic proposes a new DEU project

"As a result of our discussions, we submit this formal proposal for consideration. Note that as every nation has its own migration policies and process for citizenship eligibility, this is a complicated and logistically challenging proposal to author. France will adopt a structure very similar to the Soviet Union's model, however others may have different models or even reject such migration entirely. Consequently, the cap mentioned below is for total successful asylum requests in a year across the entire EIM. We can impose a limit on this at the DEU level, but it would be completely illegal and unconstitutional to regulate the citizenship application process of any member-state."

DEU EIM Refugee and Asylum Policy

I. A "Refugee and Asylum Policy Cap" shall be created, set at a rate of 500,000 successful cases per year. Families applying shall be given priority and processed together within this cap to prevent the possibility of separation, however 100,000 of the total 500,000 shall also be guaranteed to individuals.
II. The Bureau for Regulated Migration shall be established and charged with overseeing the filling of this cap. The Bureau's head office will remain in Strasbourg, but will be authorized to operate field offices in EIM member-states on the frontier of the continent, in addition to Algeria, Egypt, Libya (if approved by the Libyan government), the Nigerian Federal Republic, Mauritania, the Central African Republic, and any future potential humanitarian crisis locations. Field offices in areas of current distress or those still recovering from disaster will create a process for application processing in these areas, meaning that fewer individuals are likely to try and travel to Europe at their own risk. Offices in Algeria, Egypt, and Libya would similarly serve to deter any attempts at crossing the Mediterranean.
III. The total cap of 500,000 will be broken down and distributed among member states who are willing to accept refugees and asylum seekers only; no DEU member will be forced to accept migration should their government oppose it.
IV. The Bureau will aid national authorities in the processing and vetting of all asylum claims to ensure European security is not jeopardized.
V. A DEU oversight committee will monitor the Bureau's performance to ensure transparency and effectiveness.
VI. The DEU Assembly can vote to modify/amend the cap at any time.

To summarize and use the Soviet system as an example; DEU member-states can issue as many temporary refugee cards as they wish in a year, as these individuals are not eligible for EIM freedom of movement and thus are not a potential challenge to ensuring managed EIM infrastructure upkeep - should they breach the EIM, they can be deported. However, as indefinite stay cards are treated as an accepted asylum claim, there could be no more than 500,000 of these issued across all of the DEU EIM in one year.

This is a polarizing and delicate issue, so we welcome feedback for the debating period of this proposal. Personally, we would welcome increasing the limit to perhaps 750,000 per year as the expanse of the EIM from the Euro Sea to Vladivostok is truly vast (OOC: unlike the real EU). Furthermore, we note that this is a cap - a limit, which does not need to be filled.

Ayes, 750k cap: France.
Ayes, 500k cap: Germany, URT.
Nays, against both options: Russia

The French Seventh Republic proposes a new DEU project

"As recent events have illustrated, Europe must continue to stand together against foreign aggression. The defense of our continent must be a priority as evil forces seek to destroy its great civilization, and threat which transcends our national boundaries. They must be confronted at the DEU level, and so as the first part of our 'Fortress Europe' series, we propose the formation of a new military school which will train both those who serve in DEU forces such as the ESF/MDSF, and personnel selected from within the officer corps of each member-state's own national military. Known as the Academy of European Defense and Military Strategy, it shall be based in Strasbourg but be authorized to establish other campus facilities around the continent in order to best facilitate training of all branches of the armed forces (so a naval school could be formed at another coastal location). Students would be able to receive education in all languages of the DEU member-states, with dedicated language classes also being available so that Europe's soldiers and commanders can become multilingual and better able to work together cohesively. This Academy would seek to promote new doctrines and tactics for the common defense of our continent from enemy antagonists, share knowledge from combat experienced European veterans, study previous campaigns and conflicts, and help create a sense of familiarity for the equipment and procedures of DEU national militaries. We would also suggest an exchange program be negotiated with the North Americans, Australians, and San Martinia - however students from these countries would both be extensively vetted, and not be allowed to participate in classes directly related to planning and tactics for the defense of our continent or the specifications of sensitive European military equipment. However, anything we can learn from our loyal partners around the globe should not be discounted."

Ayes: France, Germany, URT, Russia.

Safeguarding European Borders: Joint CAMD-MDSF project


"The Continental Airspace Monitoring Directorate was established some time ago as part of an air and missile defense strategy, with the goal of safeguarding European cities from attack by integrating Europe's early warning systems and interception capabilities. The MDSF you are all familiar with; created with the aim of safeguarding DEU interests east of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Today, France submits a proposal which shall give both the CAMD and MDSF enhanced capabilities for protecting our continent from enemy aggression, as part of Fortress Europe."


The DEU CAMD and MDSF shall jointly administer an over-the-horizon radar system, codenamed Spyglass. The first installation shall have a range of 3,000km for maritime traffic/5,000km for aerial targets, and be located in France. Other such installations would follow, with Mauritania, Ireland, Greece, Egypt, and the Soviet Union (which has several facilities of this type already, and we hope that the USSR would be willing to partner with the rest of the DEU in this area of expertise) being other potential sites. Further facilities would also be attractive south of the Pyrenees were any nation there to join the DEU in the near future, and the islands of the Atlantic. There is even potential for deployment in the Caribbean, Falklands, or French Guiana to give a clear view into South America itself. However, those would be endeavors for even a decade into the future - the priority shall be on the Atlantic and immediate European periphery to secure our continent from attack.

Ayes: France, Germany, URT.
