Volohk wrote:IC: President Williams steps off the ferry and onto the soil of the newly annexed Aicrias Archipelago and takes a deep breath of the ocean air. He steps up to a podium on the beach set up prior to his arrival.

"Smell that salt air. It's been too long since this old man went to the beach. Forgive me if I seem a bit nervous it's just I'm afraid I might combust in this sun with my pale skin." He says jokingly. The gathered crowd chuckles along.

"Aicrias has seen a lot of hardship especially in recent years. It still is recovering from the war from years ago. The ruined hulks of voliek and other nation's tanks and gods know what else still litter some of the valleys here. With that war came regime change and Aicrias became increasingly isolated from the world having fallen from the spotlight. A few years ago there was the brief civil war after the imposter government took power. Many had hoped that with the ousting of that cruel government would bring with it a new era for Aicrias. But it was not enough. And so here we are today. Today Volohk and Aicrias become one. I will be the first one to admit that Volohk's economy has never been all that great since the monarchy gave way to the republic. If it weren't from the help of our good friends like those in Hyperborea or those just across the border in the Holy Empire or Culof I don't know where we'd be. But we're grateful. It is my hope that with Aicrias joining Volohk that our great nation shall see true prosperity. The government has been hard at work on new economic policy to really kick things into high gear but it will take time. However one thing that we can be sure of is the immediate effects of this union. With Aicrias joining our family we now virtually control the Corsair Sea and the bounty it holds. We Volohkians are fishermen. It's the biggest part of our whole economy. And with this new era for Volohk comes even more open waters from which we may take in the harvest of the sea. We can't have all of the Crowded Sea so we'll take all of the Corsair Sea instead!" President Williams says ending with a joke which causes the crowd to laugh again.

"I'm an old man. My father was the last king of Volohk and I am its first President. I don't know how long I have left and I don't know how long it's going to take us to get this republic ticking over like it should but we'll get there. If there is one thing we Volohkians are best at besides fishing its persevering through time.

Oh an before I finish up here I know that at least Vostag had a military base stationed in Aicrias and I fully intend to let them keep using it. I can't recall if any other nations did but I do remember that little bit. Been a long time. But if any of those nations that did remember then I will be more than willing to discuss allowing such things to continue or not. Thank you all. Have a great day!"

IC:

President Williams is contacted directly by President Alduin, whom is accompanied by his Secretary of Defense. The video call takes place somewhere in some fortification.

"President Williams, it is a pleasure.

First, I would like to thank you for your time. From my land to yours, I hope for continuous progress during this war. Secondly, I am here with my Secretary of Defense, who will be an acting witness to this claim; the Federation of Sovern does manage and administrate the active forward military base; where the contents, and purposes, of this facility - has been classified by the Sovern government.

The Sovern government does recognize Volohk's annexation, and we have no intentions on staking any further claim to the rest of the island; its inhabitants, or assets within the confines of this territory. In trust, I can tell you that the responsibilities and jurisdiction does fall upon our established installation. It was historically a key base to our wars in the region, as its purpose initially was to sustain the former state's independence. We believe that this facility should still be permitted to exist for the time being.

I hope we're on the same page." President Alduin finishes with a cordial expression.

Vostag wrote:OOC: Well since no one came forward to run for the Chancellor position we can't have an election. However I as Chief Executive will pick someone to serve as acting Chancellor. My pick, to make things easy, is Quji Da'Jar of Rekua. If they are willing to serve for one more term of course.

The Chancellor agrees to the offer in continuing another term.

IC: "Well the sustaining independence mission is obviously done. Do you have any wars in this region that would merit the continued operation of this base? Seeing as those were the purposes you stated."

Volohk wrote:IC: "Well the sustaining independence mission is obviously done. Do you have any wars in this region that would merit the continued operation of this base? Seeing as those were the purposes you stated."

IC: "Sovern is subjectively a very important figure in the Crowded Sea region. We have installations in locations where the assets of trade in this node is well protected, and safely escorted during needed hours. Serun Isle is a protectorate under the Federation, and as such we need viable room for logistical reasons. The Lemurian War has a lot of ongoing influence in the installation's status; it is an acting supply route for our forces in the other hemisphere.

In stake of the situation, the Sovern government had an arrangement with the former state that its property of purpose was fell paid for; and thus have paid off our lease prior to its late regime. The ownership of this property will has already been insured by our projections of power for our limitless need to have access to the same trade routes that the Sovern government acts to preserve; especially in these challenging times - especially now that foreign government have taken interest in the area, that Sovern wants to make they are limited. Volohk and Sovern are both BITO allies, and in so the base is naturally open to the Volohk military; and possibly some sort of harmony can exist if we both have equal accessibility to this important fortification - that continues to serve us as an asset in our deterrent against the enemy."

IC: "The Aicrias archipelago is in the Corsair Sea not the Crowded Sea soooo. Yes you had a lease with Aicrias but the Aicrias government is no more so any agreements are, naturally, expired. But seeing as you are willing to make this into a BITO base then if you do that then I see no reason why we shouldn't let you stay. We have an agreement."

IC: President Ion reaches his word, when his time comes to make his statement.

"It was within the Tritran Constitution that the transition of territorial possession and pre-existing claims, may be transferred to the confederate government. "Fort Maybreeze" was a naval base that was within the Imperial Realm; thus existing as a current piece of Tritran soil. Currently, Tritra is engaged in Culof's purge against socialists, that Tritra came to the aid for, and is still an acting participant in the region. So the base will remain under Tritran government. In addition, the base is already an acting storage facility for BITO forces, and has been open to BITO since the beginning of the Lemurian War."

Tritra wrote:IC: President Ion reaches his word, when his time comes to make his statement.

"So the base will remain under Tritran government."

IC: "Quite the assumption. The UNB Cartographics Administration has recognized Volohk's authority over ALL the territory in the Aicrias Archipelago. Key to notice all the territory in the archipelago. If you wish to talk with us about continuing a lease then we can do that. We're being nice in even giving nations a chance to discuss possibly continuing to allow their presence in the archipelago and not just evicting the lot of them. We are trying to be considerate and respectful here by being willing to discuss such possibility so please show us the same level of respect and consideration instead of just saying your base will remain. If you wish to keep just saying you will keep this base without discussing the matter with the Volohkian government then you will be evicted. But if you resist said eviction then I will more than gladly consult the Domestic Affairs Ministry so that they may resolve this matter.

Thank you very much. I'll be waiting for word of your decision or your call to discuss the matter." -President Williams of Volohk

IC: "I would like to note, that citing one piece of my statement for the closure of one perspective being influenced, is nothing short of media; I am not shocked to find that you would use friends in high places to get what you want. There was never any discretion in the annexation of the territory; nor the responsive status of Tritra's naval base being compromised by foreigners. The lease will have to continue as Tritra paid its fair share of its security deposit, fees, and its ability to pay its rent. It was expected to last 88 years, and so there are 86 years left of our deal. If Volohk understands the importance of keeping one's word, then it will surely respect our ownership of said asset. Thank you for understanding."

IC: "Funny. Here you are fighting socialists in Culof yet your insistence of Volohk continuing any agreement that an annexed territory made reminds me of something a socialist said recently regarding Rekua. How the turn tables. I wouldn't exactly call the current domestic affairs minister a high-up friend of mine. I am a friend with Chief executive Odinson true but no one in cartographics is a friend of mine. If there were any friends of mine in cartographics the map would be very much different. However that isn't the case.

Volohk inquired about annexing the Aicrias Archipelago with Cartographics about 6 months ago. We conducted our own search for any documentation that may suggest any other nations had claims to the archipelago. Cartographics said they conducted their own search for documentation of possible claims or documents of any sort in regard to Aicrias. They told us they found none either but they told us to wait six months in case the Aicrias government managed to rebuild itself. That hasn't happened in the six month period. We contacted cartographics again about Volohk's claim on the islands. Cartographics said they did another search for documentation prior to accepting our payment for the islands and therefore recognizing our claim over all of the archipelago territory after having found no such documentation again.

Whether you can provide documentation or not the government of Aicrias Ceased-To-Exist and any agreements made with them ended then as the UNB peacekeepers took control of the territory as is the standard procedure.

Any agreement your nation or any nation had with Aicrias was voided when their government went CTE and the UNB provisional government took over to stabilize the islands. Multiple nations recognized this as the multiple agreements even Tritra's, I'm assuming such documentation even existed at some point but perhaps not, are no longer existent.

If you do have some sort of documentation detailing exactly what you say then I suggest you share it with us, the Domestic Affairs Minister Amata Radewagen of Sain Coan, and the UNB Cartographics Administration so we can get this all nice, cleaned up, and straightened out. In the event that it IS straightened out, whatever the decision will be, then I kindly ask the Domestic Affairs and the Defense Minister Andrei Sirko of The Cossack Hetamanate dispatch UTF peacekeepers to kindly escort the Tritran forces out of Volohkian territory or establish a cordon around this site.

Of course if Domestic Affairs finds it easier and simpler, Volohk is more than willing to simply just forget about even discussing the possibility about allowing any sort of bases to continue and see them all evicted by peacekeepers. I don't want to have to go back on my word after having already made agreements with Sovern and Vostag about their bases but honestly if it's easier just to wash our hands of even offering discussions then so be it. All we can say is we tried being considerate but if one wants to ruin it for the bunch then so be it. We were under no obligations to even grant such a consideration in the first place. We just thought it would be the nice thing to do. Give folks a chance to renew some things that had expired. But I guess not. Oh well."
