Zhouran To Provide Assistance With New Clark City

Ministry of External Affairs announces Zhouranese financial
and construction support for New Clark City, Philippines

"Beacons of Zhouranese Economic Resilience & Financial Prosperity",
such cities have played an important contribution to Zhouran's
very-high standard of living and HDI and IHDI ranking that ranks highest
in Asia and one of the top 3 highest in the world
Bottom: While various Philippine cities such as Pasig City have grown
thanks to recent Philippine economic growth, poverty and pollution
remains a large issue among Philippine cities


The Ministry of External Affairs has announced that financial and construction assistance to New Clark City of the Philippines will be provided, a spokesperson stated. The spokesperson added that raw material and heavy machinery will be provided while engineers will be sent to act as construction advisers. Expected to be completed in 25 to 30 years time, Philippine officials state that New Clark City will promote healthy, eco-friendly, sustainable living and will also reduce pressure off Manila, the capital of the Philippines and one of the world's most densest cities. While the outlook for New Clark City in the Philippines remains optimistic, not everyone holds the same view.

Dr Laisunren Jiasen from Ashike University remains highly skeptical on New Clark City, even if the city was to be built with Zhouranese assistance. "Sure, the city sounds nice in paper, but in reality the Philippines lacks the capability to construct a city based on first-world standards" he stated during an interview. Dr Laisunren also added "the Philippines has a high level of political corruption, a large percentage of their total population still live in third-world standards, they have a massive infrastructure gap, and the nation would have to leech off of foreign aid and investments just for the construction of a single model city in a third-world country with up to a hundred million people and growing". When asked if Zhouranese financial and construction assistance will reduce the stress on building NCC, Dr Laisunren replied "no, it would take several wealthy nations such as Zhouran to invest in a Philippine pet project and provide assistance in the construction of the city". He also stated that by the time New Clark City is finished, large metropolitan areas such as Zhouran's Hexie or Japan's Tokyo would be "in the future" while NCC would be "stuck in the past".

Earlier today Interim leader of the National Conservative Party Rachel Johnson announced that the party would enter into a coalition deal with the centrist New Democrats- their current partners in government- and the opposition Socialist Party. James Davis, known as the 'great compromiser' will be prime minister even though his New Democrat party is the smallest in the lower house with just 44 seats. Combined the new government with have 189 seats out of 350 giving Davis as 13 seat majority. The National Conservatives will be the largest party with 77 seats, the Socialists at 68, and the New Democrats taking up the rear with 44. The Conservatives and Socialists took a massive beating on the March 13th poll losing 87 and 56 seats respectively. The Christian Social Union won 101 seats and the newly founded Progressive-Labor Party won 60 seats.

It is however uncertain how long this government can last. Populist parties on the left and right see this as the political establishment keeping them from power. Additionally, with the resignation of outgoing Prime Minister John Black as NC leader the next Conservative leader may withdraw the party from the deal. With presidential elections in 2020 and both major parties fending off the Christian Social Union and Progressive-Labor Party they may be pulled to the extremes of opposite ends. Lawmakers have yet to announce cabinet assignments. Outgoing Prime Minister John Black welcomed the deal saying that a new "era of compromise and goodwill" could bring prosperity.

Grand Emperor Geronimo XIII walked into the Joint Session of Governing Houses about to give the "emergency address" he had brought up only 3 days before. In addition to the hasty planning, another strange thing about the occasion was that the Grand Emperor was accompanied by Captain Marshal Hopstoff of the Imperial Armed Forces and General Gredovik of the "Steel Helmet" 1st Corps- the Imperial Guard units. Geronimo took the podium to speak.
"My fellow Fostorians, I have come here to address an important issue which has been in debate for over 6 months. And that issue is the North Fostorian Question." The crowd began to quietly chatter about what this could mean.
He continued, "One of my proposals, made along with the Nationalist Imperial Worker's Party in Parliament, was laid out to unite the Fostorian States- these include our own, the North Fostorian Federation, the Imperial Crown Islands, and the Gredorian Republic. My undying intention and goal have been to bring about our finest hour by putting all of the Fostorian lands under the Imperial Crown of the Fostorian People which is currently held by myself. I feel that I was working in the best interest of the Fostorian people who gave, and continue to give me my power. However, several members of the House of Nobles decided to vote against the Fostorian people and for their own interests, blocking Parliament's North Fostorian Integration Plan from reaching my desk. They are so concerned with their own power that they voted against two Kingdoms being admitted to the State, as to not even slightly devaluate their vote. After speaking with my closest advisors, I have decided that the best way to overcome this situation is to reorganize the government. I hereby shall exercise my power as Grand Emperor of the Fostorian People to dissolve the House of Nobles indefinitely and send each of its constituent members back to the state over which they preside. I will personally reopen the House at a time I deem fit, and with the rules and vested powers I deem fit." Many members of the House of Nobles appear shocked, but others don't. "However, that is just the beginning of today's agenda. Second of all, I am announcing the total and complete annexation of all of the aforementioned Fostorian Realms into the State. Federal State Leader Gennady Gueryanov of the North Fostorian Federation has already signed off on it, however, the government of the Gredorian Republic held out and the Capitol is currently being stormed by armed paramilitary militias of the Gredorian branch of the Pan-Fostorian Nationalist Imperial Worker's Party (GF-NIVP-G). Since all of the Fostorian peoples will be united under the same state and in harmounius unity for the first time since the deposition of Geronimo X, I hereby proclaim the establishment of the United Grand Empire of Fostoria. I have serious state business to attend to, so I will make an address tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM Daiychaz Standard Time to discuss more in-depth changes. A Hurrah for Greater Fostoria!" The crowd becomes electric- "HURRAH! HURRAH! Glory to the Emperor, glory to the Fostorians!" they chanted.

Zhouranese Warships Challenged By Chinese Navy In South China Sea

Three Zhouranese warships were provocatively challenged by the 
Chinese military as they traveled through the disputed South China Sea

sailing across the South China Sea during a maritime reconnaissance operation on February 15, 1983


Earlier today, the Chinese military issued "robust" challenges to three Zhouranese warships as they legally traveled through the South China Sea to the Philippines. The confrontation with the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy occurred following China's largest ever naval exercises in the hotly contested waters. Domestic sources from military analysts say the confrontation between Type 2008 Qinlue-class CGN "Incorruptible Regret of Sublime Compunction" and Type 2011 Laobukepo-class DDGNs "Pitiless Spirit of Rapturous Intent" and "Long Night of Vigorous Thunder" from the Zhouranese People's Army Navy, and the Type 052D DDGN "Kunming" and Type 054A FFG "Yuncheng" from the PLA Navy occurred as they were transiting towards the Philippines where they are now conducting a three-day goodwill visit in Manila. One naval officer serving onboard Long Night of Vigorous Thunder, speaking on the condition of anonymity, insisted the exchanges with the Chinese were polite, but "robust".

The Ministry of Defense has refused to answer questions or discuss details of the interactions between the Zhouranese warships and the Chinese military. In a statement, it confirmed the three warships recently traveled through the South China Sea after sailing through the Luzon Strait. "The Zhouranese People's Army has proudly maintained an efficient program of international engagement with countries in and around the South China Sea for decades", the MoD told ZCNA. "This includes bilateral and multilateral military exercises, port visits, maritime surveillance operations and ship transits."

Minister of External Affairs Hadarong Shaokang would not reveal what happened in the exchange with the Chinese military when questioned about it during a press conference. "All I can say to everyone around the world is Zhouran asserts and practices the universal right of freedom of navigation throughout the world's oceans, which of course includes the South China Sea", Mrs Hadarong stated during the conference. "It is our fundamental right in accordance with international law, violating such right will lead to punishment."

Military analyst and retired fighter pilot Kangsun Tanren reiterated Zhouran's rights within international law and downplayed the seriousness of the incident during a lecture on aviation and maritime politics at Kangrong University. "I think 'confrontation' is somewhat of a tabloid-style description of what goes on in the South China Sea very regularly", he said. "We have to remember that such 'confrontation' happens regularly everywhere, the media only picks up on events like this in order to create reactions from the public."

In a statement, China's Defence Ministry said: "The reports from Zhouran are different from the facts". "On April 22, China's naval vessels encountered Zhouranese naval ships in the South China Sea. China's ships used professional language to communicate with the Zhouranese side. China's operation is lawful and conforms to conventions. It is professional and safe."

During their port visit to Manila, Incorruptible Regret of Sublime Compunction, Pitiless Spirit of Rapturous Intent and Long Night of Vigorous Thunder will conduct a logistic resupply and local engagement with the Armed Forces of the Philippines and local government officials.

The PLA should be thankful that we were simply being kind to them or else Kunming and Yuncheng would already be at the bottom of the South China Sea along with the sailors.


BrunoBoi

Lol isn't this like a typical thing out in the sea?


JuanTamad93

Since Chinese warships use Chinese steel, the Zhouranese warships should of simply rammed into the Chinese warships and watch 'em sink.


SinoDefense1989

Typical Zhouranese fake news trying to paint us Chinese as aggressive and barbaric. Only the Zhouranese would act in such fashion. How unproffessional.

04/22/2018, Han Ohyes Reporter, Stratalite News Network

A major bust of a international organized crime network operating between Skull Island and Liberty City occurred. 10 tons of heroin, 20 tons of barbituates, and 30 tons of fiickr were captured on a cargo ship with fake papers. In the hold were 40 illegal foreign nationals and the means of producing false citizenship papers and purple cards. So far ten people have been indicted.

The investigation is ongoing. Says Captain Cruon of the coast guard. "Flickr is an extremely dangerous drug, it is a hallucinogen which causes people to be attracted to bright lights and fires. Recently several buildings burned down on Scooby Island due to this dangerous new drug. We have not traced the source of this drug, but it represents a threat to stability."

There are rumored connections between this arrest and a recent raid on Mechano Cooperative Industries. Neighbors reported gunfire at 2:00 a.m. on 04/21/2018. Clouds of gas were seen billowing from the building. Unconscious men and women were seen being taken out on stretchers at 3:00 a.m. to waiting police vans and transports. We can only surmise what the exact reason is for the raid. There is an ongoing investigation.

Mechano Cooperative Industries was served with tax evasion papers, improper accounting charges, and money laundering. As earlier reported, the CFO had been caught in a non state licensed brothel, and has disappeared from public view. Robert Kai, the Head Litigator for Mechano Cooperative Industries was unavailable for comment at this time.

Stay posted for further developing stories.

Zhouran Will Declare War If Freedom Of Navigation In SCS Is Supressed

Ministry of Defense states that the nation will
go to war if freedom of navigation in the South China Sea
is suppressed by any aggressors


Days following the incident between three Zhouranese warships and two Chinese warships in the South China Sea, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense stated that the People's Republic of Zhouran will "declare war on any aggressors who dare to suppress freedom of navigation in the South China Sea" and that aggressors will be "severely punished". While no nations were named China was however heavily implied when the spokesperson added "nations that interfere with maritime sailing routes and harass foreign military aircraft that fly in international airspace are adding fuel to the fire".

In regards to Zhouranese military presence in the South China Sea, the spokesperson told the press that the Zhouranese People's Army will "continue to cooperate with Southeast Asian partners" and "further enhance assistance to Southeast Asian militaries". As for China, the spokesperson added that bilateral communications between Zhouran and China will remain "open" and that the two nation "will continue to communicate with each other and maintain mutual trust".

I kinda doubt a war in the SCS would happen, except of course the first shot has been fired.

I don't know why the Zhouranese are aggressive like yankees, they're basically fueling the fire themselves.

China's Hong Kong Aggression Begins After Days of Build-Up
Image
Left: Royal Army soldier some distance from the border | Centre: Chinese ZTZ69 tank destroyed in the outskirts of Canton | Right: Crowded evacuation post in Macao

Canton, Hong Kong Crown Territory, 18 May 2018

In the eve of 17 May 2018, the Democratic People's Republic of China began their invasion of the Hong Kong Crown Territory. This was following the sudden spark of Chinese threats to invade Hong Kong, beginning in 6 May when the Chinese stationed around 100,000 troops to the Hong Kong-China border, along with heavy equipment and artillery.

In the days after their deployment, the DPRC received great international backlash, and increased sanctions from the UN. The Eurasian Union expressed their support for Britain, with Japan, Russia, and India deploying troops on their borders with China. However, all of these were ignored by China's iron-fisted dictator, Fu Xinyi, and an additional 80,000 troops were deployed in 11 May. Premier Fu repeatedly stated in Chinese media that "... no diplomacy will be brokered with the West..." and that "... Hong Kong is rightfully ours...".

In response, King-Emperor James IV ordered the 4th Armoured Corps, a unit of the Royal Army stationed in southern Italy, to bolster the 8,700-strong Royal Hong Kong Rifles, the only British military force present in Hong Kong. As of today, no sub-unit of the 4th hasn't arrived in Hong Kong. The Royal Navy and Royal Air Force also saw increased presence in Hong Kong, with the HMS Matterhorn, an Everest-class Light Aircraft Carrier, being restationed there from New Guinea.

The people of Canton, Macao, and Hong Kong City began panicking. Booked flights out of the Territory tripled, and many airports were congested in the days to follow. Airlines began flying more to Hong Kong to accommodate the passenger surge. Supermarkets were often forced to close down due to panic buying, and the Hong Kong Government had to begin releasing supplies typically reserved for disaster.

17 May 2018, at around 23:00, the British forces guarding the border saw flashes of light in the distance, later with sounds of artillery fire. The border checkpoints were barraged by Chinese guns. While their alertness saved most of them from the initial barrage, the soldiers still had to face around 220,000 Chinese soldiers, spearheaded by dozens of ZTZ59 and ZTZ69 tanks.

Royal Army forces stood their ground. Machine guns and anti-tank launchers were fired against the aggressors. Within 30 minutes, the HMS Matterhorn was sending its squadrons of Apache attack helicopters and FGR6 Raven carrier-based stealth fighters. The HMS Bristol and HMS Königsberg City-class frigates tackled a group of Chinese Jiangwei II frigates and Type 037 corvettes attempting a blockade. With practically no air support, the Chinese offence stalled by the dawn of 18 May, the Chinese gaining little ground for high casualties.

However, the Chinese continue to push, and Royal Army lines are getting thinned at every hour. The exact number of casualties is unknown, but estimates are around 100 to 200 Royal Army personnel dead with even more wounded, and around 10,000 to 15,000 PLA troops dead with an unknown but likely high number of wounded. Civilian casualties are put at 46 dead, and hundreds of wounded.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has officially declared war on China this morning. This was followed by declarations of war from the Russian Empire, Japanese Empire, Dominion of India, and United States of America announced throughout the day. The rest of the NATO and EU member states are expected to follow suit in the coming days.

Governor-General Maribeth Ainsworth held an emergency press conference this morning.

"This act of unprovoked aggression by the Democratic People's Republic of China warrants ultimate condemnation. As I speak, brave Royal Army soldiers are risking their lives only kilometres from here. You can hear the gunshots and explosions from the distance. The PLA is slowly beginning to close into our homes, Canton and its surrounding villages are bombarded by Chinese artillery, innocent people are getting killed. Women and children now homeless and fearing for their lives. This cannot stand. Once we drive you back, and we will, the same amount of violence will meet your own cities. We do not want war, but now that it's here, we sure as hell are going to fight at every field and street corner. For now, we urge the people of the Hong Kong Crown Territory to evacuate. Bring what you can carry, the authorities will come to each and every home and pick you up. Shelters have been set up where you will be safe. We wish your safety. Know that the Empire protects her people."

- Maribeth Ainsworth, Governor-General of Hong Kong; 18 May 2018

Evacuations are underway, especially in the City of Canton. The Canton Metropolitan Police is finding difficulty with the situation, and sincerely asks for the citizens' cooperation. If you live in any high-risk area, we recommend you to gather any food, clothing, and essentials and prepare for an immediate evacuation. It is unknown whether the garrison could hold until reinforcements arrive.

Radio Warfare On Libya's Tripoli-Based Government

Libya's Tripoli-based Government of National Accord complains on Zhouran
conducting psyops on short-wave radio against GNA-aligned troops


Today the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord in Libya has complained that the People's Republic of Zhouran is conducting "psychological warfare" on GNA-aligned troops. Colonel Al-Mahdi Al-Barghathi, GNA Minister of Defense, stated that GNA-aligned forces were "being bombarded with radio propaganda from the Zhouranese" and that the "Zhouranese are using radio to weaken the Government of National Accord and strengthen both the House of Representatives and Khalifa Haftar". Indeed, the People's Republic of Zhouran supports the Tobruk-led House of Representatives and has provided both financial and military support to Field Marshal Khalifa Belqasim Haftar, Libya's most powerful warlord. In regards to radio psyops broadcast over GNA-aligned troops, the Zhouranese People's Army Air Force sent a highly-modified A330-200 psychological operations aircraft, one formerly used by Zhouran National Air Fleet Express as an airliner, to Algeria at the start of April in order to conduct psyops broadcast against GNA-aligned troops as well as civilians living in GNA territory. The unencrypted message against GNA-aligned forces is in Arabic, French and English, while the special A330-200 would fly day and night near the Algerian-Libyan border together with escorts of ZPAAF fighter jets.

The People's Republic of Zhouran currently engages in major worldwide radio broadcasts with the purpose of inducing or reinforcing behavior favorable to Zhouranese objectives. The highly-specialized A330-200 sent to Algeria has been highly-modified with the capability to broadcast radio in the standard AM, FM, HF, TV and military communications bands as well as color television on a multitude of worldwide standards throughout the TV VHF/UHF ranges. Apart from psyops broadcast, some analysts state that the specialized A330-200 is also jamming the military communications of GNA-aligned forces.

Commons In Revolt as Budget Chaos Looms

Image
Marquis of Maidely in the Lords yesterday


More bad news for the Prime Minister this morning as his Chancellor's third attempt at passing the year's budget goes before the House of Lords today. The Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Marquis of Maidely, is due to go before the House for the final debate on the third draft of the budget, which has seen an even further rift open up between the Lords and the Commons. The budget is expected to pass the through the House of Lords this afternoon, but the leader of the Labour Party in the Commons, Sir Arthur Whitegrave, is still not satisfied with the new draft.

The past few weeks have seen two previous attempts at passing the 2018 Budget Act, and with the end of the month looming, the public sector could be in for increased uncertainty over funding. At present, the vast majority of the Strathan Economy is publicly owned, although illicit black markets in non-essential goods and supplies are now accounting for nearly 8% of Strathy's economic activity. The Labour Government has committed itself to largely retaining the status-quo on the budget, to the general agreement of their parliamentary colleagues in the House of Lords. However, the government benches in the Commons are not convinced, with many set to vote against the bill.

Sir Arthur, who remains the government's Secretary of State for Trade has made repeated calls for the opening of the Markets for non-essential services and products with tight regulation to attempt to boost the stagnating economy. Minister for the Treasury, Angela McCleary, echoed Sir Arthur's calls, adding that only freeing of the markets with regulation would help put a stop to the ever expanding black market economy, giving people the choice they clearly desire.

Opposition benches in the Commons have offered their support to the Commons Labour Party, with Conservative Leader Dmitri Arkhistra saying he would welcome a counter budget from Sir Arthur's side of the chamber. However, the Government's benches in the Commons are far from united, with Simon Rosztili's Socialist Party standing in unison with their counterparts in the House of Lords. Conversely, many Socialist Party Peers are moving towards the side of Sir Arthur. A split in both houses could be disastrous for the Government

It is not known if the Commons Labour Party will submit their own budget, however, sources in Malcolm Avenue have said that a draft has been put forward for reading to members of the front benches. If true, such a move would likely bring the Government to a complete standstill. With the Lords at the mercy of the Commons, it could mean a radical shake up of the system. Although this is all merely speculation, it does appear that a budget proposed by the Commons Labour Party would easily pass the Commons and could, in theory pass the Lords with enough work.

Such events would leave the country in serious constitutional uncertainty.

A Temporary Ban On Filipino Workers In Zhouran

Ministry of Territorial Affairs places temporary ban on the deployment
of Filipino workers to Zhouran, of which the overwhelmingly majority
are domestic workers and street cleaners


Today the Ministry of Territorial Affairs has placed a temporary ban on the deployment of Filipino workers to Zhouran. According to a spokesperson, the ban was put in place due to "quotas" and that the number of overseas Filipino workers in Zhouran is "at a maximum". Currently there are up to a thousand Filipino workers in Zhouran, with an overwhelming majority being domestic workers and street cleaners. Under the temporary ban, Filipinos are prohibited from working in Zhouran while OFWs currently in Zhouran are exempt from the ban.

About 10 million Filipinos work abroad, seeking high-paying jobs they are unable to find at home, and their remittances are a major pillar of the Philippine economy. The Philippine government has for decades hailed overseas workers as modern heroes but analysts have highlighted the social cost of migration, tearing families apart and making Filipinos vulnerable to abuse. Overseas Filipino workers in Zhouran are seen by locals as "submissive slaves" and as a result Filipinos are stereotyped as meek, timid and obedient. Not only that, out of the approximately one thousand in Zhouran, a huge majority of the Filipino workers are young women. Many overseas Filipino workers in Zhouran have stated that they feel extremely stigmatized and alienated from Zhouranese society due to their occupation and differences in ethnicity and culture.

According to the spokesperson, the temporary ban should last until at least the start of 2019, although he added "the ban could either last longer or end before 2019 depending on various circumstances". The Department of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of the Philippines has stated that the temporary ban has been accepted and that any Filipinos wanting to work in Zhouran will be notified about the ban, while the Ministry of External Affairs of the People's Republic of Zhouran has stated that the temporary ban has no effect on Philippine-Zhouranese relations.

ARCHDUCHESS OF ARNAXIS RECEIVES KING CARTHAS III OF ALKUZ IN 11-DAYS LONG ARCHONIAN TOUR




BY ARMIELLA SALVANI (IMPERIAL CORRESPONDENT)

ARCHONIOPOLII - Her Imperial Highness Crown Princess Arvallia Archonis, Archduchess of Arnaxis, received His Majesty King Carthas iII of Alkuz on the first day of his 11-day Archonian tour at the Imperial Palace, Archonium. The Archduchess is standing in for her father, Emperor Ceyran Archonis II, who is currently on a visit to colony of Hyperion in an attempt to prevent further escalations between local resistance and Imperial Armed Forces from happening. King Carthas III is warmly received by the Archduchess and Imperial government officials and representatives of the community at 12:45 GST +3 at Archoniopolii International Spaceport; King Carthas III then joined the Archduchess in her state car for the trip towards the Imperial Palace, alongside High Chancellor Garrus Adicarti and Alkuzar Minister of External Affairs Tharwe Harzan.

King Carthas III and his cabinet visited the Imperial Union to commemorate 1,500 years of Alkuzar-Archonian alliance, with education, culture, and national defense as the visit's main concerns. The King and Archduchess engaged in talks to establish the International Archan Society as a mean to lessen Archonium's Royal Institute of Archan Studies' and Alkuz' Magister Association grasps as the galaxy's foremost authorities on Archan studies, research, and regulation. The King and Archduchess also discussed about the possibility of reviving the annual joint military exercises between the Royal Alkuzar Defense and Imperial Armed Forces of Archonium, which has been suspended 20 years prior as a result of both countries' focus to uplift the militaries of smaller and younger nation-states.

The Kingdom of Alkuz and the Imperial Union have been close allies since the latter's admittance into the Alliance of Sovereign Nations in 519 C.E. Alkuz is one of the few countries that wasn't involved in an armed conflict with the Imperial Union, and is often the first to respond to Archonium's call for arms in times of need. The Alkuzar-Archonian alliance is hailed as the world's most important and powerful, and bilateral trade between the two superpowers is the galaxy's largest in its history. The alliance has been often criticized by political leaders, such as Prime Minister Ryhtorec Hutzlca of the Estallian Empire, who lamented the imbalance close Alkuzar-Archonian alliance had brought to the galaxy's balance of power. Nevertheless, it is undeniable that through the tightly-knitted friendship of the two monarchies, the galaxy had seen a nearly half a century long period of peace. Without the Alkuzar-Archonian alliance, the galaxy wouldn't be a safe and peaceful place as it is now.

European Union Emergency Summit in Bruxel, Frievolk

Bruxel, Belgium, Frievolker Empire, 17 June 2018

On the 14th of June, an emergency summit of the European Union (EU) was called for by Emperor Johann I of Frievolk, regarding the recent rising hostility between Germany and France, as well as a possibly second aggression done by the EU's rogue member, Turkey. 16 of the 22 Member-states agreed to attend the summit, and it was agreed to be held in 17th of June.

On the 17th of June, the aforementioned meeting, a gathering of the heads of state and heads of government of the nations comprising the EU, was held. From 10:00 to 18:00 CET, the leaders of the attending nations gathered to discuss various agendas regarding the Union and its member nations, including a possible readmital of The Frievolker Empire's European Territories, with a 1:30 hour lunch break at 14:00.

The following nations have sent at least one political head to the summit: The UK, France, Germany, Frievolk, Netherlands, Poland, Austria, Greece, Turkey, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine. The some notable figures were Theresa May, Vladimir Putin, Emmanuel Macron,and Angela Merkel. Folknoren refused to attend.

A separate banquet was held at the night of the 17th, from 20:00 to 23:00, for the member monarchs of The Monarchist Defense Pact who attended the summit, of which are: Johann I of Frievolk, Elizabeth II of Brittain, Willem-Alexander of Netherlands, Karl of Austria, Pavlos of Greece, Umberto Emanuel VI of Italy, and Sofia II of Spain.

One of the main topics was the recently reflamed enmity between France and Germany regarding the two countries' respective nationalism. The Issue rose recently with a rally and demonstration held by "Tradition und Leben", the most prominent monarchist faction in the country, that was attended by millions of people from all over Germany, as well as the German Diaspora from other countries (Note that more than 90,000 Germans have traveled to Berlin from Frievolker states in the three days between the announcement of the demonstration and the day it was held.) This demonstration, not recognized by the government yet, was reacted to by both Poland and France violently and avowedly, which led to Chancellor Merkel's open support of this movement on 10th of June, and the use of "Elsaß-Lothringen" in refering of the territory, which has been an item of interest in the historical Franco-German enmity. As the two nationstates began mobilizing troops and deploying them to their shared borders, King-Emperor Johann of Frievolk saw a need to call for a meeting. The Two countries agreed to cease military actions that could be seen as hostile by the next thirty-six hours, and scale back their rivalry to a verbal level. Chancellor Merkel refused to forbid a referendum in favor of monarchy, stating that "that is only a decision the German People can make", while pledging not to infringe on any other country's sovereignty "so long as they do not ours".

Another Topic that was debated was a possible rejoining of Frievolk in the European Union. King-Emperor Johann stated that the Imperial Diet of Frievolk had announced their own agreement to such a feat, and asked if the member nations of the European Union would agree to allow their return to the Union's fold after the events in 2012. Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Austria sided with Frievolk while Netherlands, Poland, Greece, and Turkey opposed such a feat. It is expected that negotiations will continue until a further time when the EU can give a final answer to our request.

A Third issue discussed was the recent hostile actions taken by the Republic of Turkey. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan refused to apologize for such feats, merely stating that "our actions in Iraq and Syria were merely a matter of national sovereignty, and does not concern this august body.". King Pavlos of Greece instead retorted that mobilizing troops in borders with countries where Turkey has had a hostile history with could give room for further aggression such as the failed Turkish Invasion of Cyprus had shown. Turkey has been given an ultimatum to cease its troops in the borders with Iran, Syria, and Greece lest the World Assembly's intervention can be called for.

A lot of other issues and topics were discussed in the hours of the summit, including climate change, terrorism, military affairs, borders and immigration, et cetera, but no treaty other than those already mentioned were signed, with The EU's next Annual meeting held in August.

Crisis in Europe

Straßburg, Bufferzone, 20 July 2018

As readers know, The state of Alsace-Lorraine officially declared bankruptcy two days ago. After five consecutive loans to the European Monetary Trust (Europäischer Währungsfonds) were left unpaid, the duchy, ruled by the house of Metz since 1945, was forced to declare bankruptcy, becoming the first European country in 186 years to do so after the Dutch Republic's economic crisis of 1832. The German Confederation as the leadership of the EU, France as the opposition, and Frievolk as a third party observer announced that they would be forming a diplomatic coalition in order to find a solution for the monetary crisis.

However, this crisis does not seem to be the only event happening in Europe now. Following the national claim on Alsace-Lorraine that led to the Emergency summit of 17 June, Despite Poland's official opposition to an official restoration of the German monarchy, the people of the historically and ethnically German provinces of Prussia and Pomerania announced that they were willing to join a reformed German Empire provided the State did not become an ethno-state like the previous incarnation had turned out to be. Our readers know that Germany, despite its avowed insitance on conserving its conservative tradition, has liberalized considerably where social issues are considered.

The Government of the two provinces announced they would hold a referendum to reveal the voice of the people. The government of Poland refused to allow such a referendum to take place, announcing that any such election and participation therein would be seen as an act of treason, leading to region-wide protests, which led to a very violent riot three days ago.

With the coinciding of the situation in Poland and the situation in Alsace-Lorraine, the World Assembly has declared this a diplomatic and economic crisis. A Committee formed of Germany, France, Frievolk, Austria, and The United Kingdom, as the most important countries in the region, was gathered yesterday 19th of July, to decide on this.

The Dakian Herald hereby pledges to cover this crisis non-stoppedly, in order to keep our quality, Read more as they happen!

Hundredstarian Navy’s Gravestaff class landing platform dock HNS Poolcreek (LPD-394) got underway from her homeport at Lady Innsforth Naval Base on July 29 to join the Joint Navy-Coast Guard counter-piracy Operation Rainbow Sentinel off the Gustavic Sea. HNS Poolcreek will operate two H-3N Seadragon helicopters from the 1056th Aviation Flotilla during the deployment and host a Maritime Special Operation Regiment. Poolcreek will relieve the offshore patrol vessel HNS Crackwood Hill (OPV-1904) which represented the Hundredstarian Navy’s contribution to the mission since April this year.

This deployment is part of the Hundredstarian contribution to the coast guard’s mission to fight piracy in the Gustavic Sea and off the coast of Hundredstar. As outlined in the National Maritime Defense Strategy, the dynamic force employment concept will prioritize maintaining the capacity and capabilities for major combat, while providing options for proactive and scalable employment of the joint force. As explained, the deployment of Poolcreek is part of the country’s efforts to maintain security in the waters of the Gustavic Sea, protecting both merchant and fishing vessels.

Undersea Salvage and Recycling Cooperative Dismantles over 80 aircraft carriers from Allanea.

The Universal Commons has Received Contracts to Disassemble over 80 Aircraft Carriers from Allanea. This represents over 480,000 tons of metals including steel, iron, ceramics, copper, plastics, and other materials. It is a true bonanza in material resources.

With this incredible amount of material we have expanded our space mining operations allowing us to bring back four small asteroids for processing. This represents over 500 pounds of platinum and rare earth metals and over 6000 tons of nickel, cobalt, and iron. The cobalt, iron, and nickel have been used to build expansions to our space station. The rare earth metals have been sent back to earth.

In addition, there has been a major push to improve our transportation network with light rail covering most of our islands built with solar and wind power corridors providing an abundant supply of transportation and energy.

The raw materials bonanza has encouraged us to help other nations around the world. With the presence of large amounts of pollution on the ocean, a fleet of automated solar and wind powered plastic collecting and recycling ships has been sent out to clean the oceans and bring back more recycled plastic. We hope to clean up the Paxarific floating garbage patch completely and convert it into raw materials within the next three years. We will also use these ships to help clean harbors and waterways.

Also new technologies have been tested in the processing of dismantling the aircraft carriers including an artificial intelligence program, powered and non-powered exoskeletons, construction robots, automated metal sheers, laser cutting technology, solar powered automated cargo ships for carrying dismantled materials, and electric powered construction equipment with heavy duty sugar batteries.

Increasing Trade With European Union Before Christmas

Ministry of External Affairs announces the loosening of
trade restrictions on the EU before Christmas


In what is considered to be a surprising gesture, the Ministry of External Affairs has announced that barriers and restrictions on trade with the European Union will be loosened and even removed before Christmas. A spokesperson stated that Zhouranese private companies can once again trade with EU partners without restrictions in order to increase trade with the EU. Some researchers have stated that the lifting of restrictions on trade with the EU was possibly done in order to normalize Zhouranese-EU relations which have been lately this year a bit tense especially in regards to trade, as well as to distance away from the United States and reduce the export of Zhouranese goods to the US.
