Kathspiri-Nieuw Zealandia Talks Conclude

Kathspiri Prime Minister Kristina Larathael met with NZ Prime Minister William Davis yesterday. The talks have resulted in a free trade agreement and easing of immigration red tape between the two countries. Allyria is also going to be supplying the Nieuw Zealandian Defence Force with their latest body armour, aircraft refuelling trucks, and other utilities. Joint military exercises have been announced, although the exact date of when they will be held has not yet been released.

The Foreign Ministry has been praised for getting this state visit established and Foreign Minister Alexander Finch seems to have redeemed himself from his subpar performance during Jack Wyodi's office.

Colmar Brunton polling shows that William Davis is NZ's prefered PM, with 68% approval, an all-time high.

TALA (Trans Atlantic Liberty Alliance), officially founded.
Today, after long talks with the diplomats of all nations who arrived in Paris, a final decision was made.
TALA would be founded. The french parliament released information detailing some aspects of the alliance:

"This alliance is a economic alliance and military alliance, but unlike most alliances today, we have no say over the internal decisions of our members. That means that the alliance can't impose any rules on how one of their members is run, and can't sanction them for their decisions.
However, when it comes to decisions about the alliance itself, member nations will discuss the situation, and then democratically decide with a majority vote. (However keep in mind, in case of emergency situations about alliance decisions, Nordamy and Franko-Italy have veto power.)

The common rule is if one nation is attacked, all allies will protect that nation, with Nuak as a exception (If a ally is attacked, Nuak won't have to join in to protect them, as they'd like to keep neutrality.)
Nordamy also has some special rules applied to them.
Nordamy won't be completely part of the alliance. They'll will be part of almost every part of the alliance, including alliance decision making, trade, and everything else, and other nations in the alliance will also be able to defend Nordamy if they are attacked, but TALA can not station any military personnel in Nordamese soil or give them weapons or supplies during peacetime. Full integration (Meaning alliance members can station troops and conduct operations in Nordamy), will only happen in the event of war.

Current members of TALA include: The Franko-Italian Union, The Sicilio-Milan Union, Nuak, and Nordamy. With new members always being accepted. May this great point in our history, this point of French history in which we refused to sit down as the world crumbled around us, be remembered forever."

The French government is yet waiting for an international response, and when prime minister De'Luffon was asked if any other nations are joining, he refused to comment.

Stay tuned for more information, and for today,

Bonsoir, Have a good evening!

The Daily Worker
Pizarski declares support for TALA
In a rousing speech to a national televised audience, Head Director Aukip Pizarski declared a international crisis in the pooling of power, saying that the ATCO had ruled for too long. To quote:

"The international cabal of businessmen and kleptocrats running the ATCO have grasped an inhumane amount of power to extend their greedy tendrils out across the globe! Just look at the situation in Mexico, comrades, where the supposed 'Republic' of Washington threatened global thermonuclear war once the business friendly Ramon government was toppled! It will only be a matter of time before they squeeze out any last resisting nations with embargo, funding of extremist terror groups, and eventually invasion. We must seize the initiative, and act now before we are acted upon, we must seize the day before the day seizes us.

We did not sit and accept total hegemony from a few corrupt capitalists in the revolution of 1930 comrades, we threw them out and took power! And so today, I have contacted the Franco-Italian Prime Minister, and we will be joining TALA, not to say yes to global capitalism, but to say no to international monopoly!"

It is expected the the UWF will be joining the TALA in the next few days officially, although this comes as an extremely surprising announcement. Such an action will surely tip the global balance of power.

News in the National Interest

Larathael addresses Parliament
Upon her return in the nation early Tuesday morning, Mrs. Larathael seems to have swiftly recovered from diplomatic fatigue and jet lag to have been able to give one of the greatest speeches of her Premiership so far on Wednesday morning. In one of the first sessions of Parliament to be televised internationally, Mrs. Larathael gave her state of the nation address with a fire and zeal not demonstrated by any Karthspiri political leader since the founder of the National Front; Former Prime Minister Elár Direnni. The following is a transcript of her speech:

"Entering this new year, I feel as though it is safe to say that our great nation has come a long way; not only in the past century but in the past 5 years alone. The Karthspiri tiger now stands guard over all Asia, pouncing on all those who harm her interests and those of her friends. For too long have we, and our allies, lived with foreign interference on our doorsteps; threats of foreign upstarts having echoed over the centuries. It is time for a new century to begin, one led by the emergence of our nation as not only the world's dominant power but also as the bulwark of freedom and democracy, the light of the torch of liberty admired the world over and the defender of the just!"

The Prime Minister paused for a moment, receiving zealous applause from members of her Party and coalition which thundered through the 1000 member chamber; continuing:

"This Asian century will be led not only by our strengthened and reinvigorated nation, the Empire which has long guarded the Indus, but by our new friends and allies in the Oriental Concordat; Japan, New Zealand and, sometimes, Russia. As we look around our broken world what we see is the furthering of the agendas of fracturing and weakening nations, the posturing of the morally weak and decrepit and the death and despair of millions. If there is one thing the Concordat stands for, it is to stand against the chaos our broken world has seen too much of. Be it through diplomacy or the fire of war, be sure that our Concordat will bring justice and liberty back to the world; standing against the cowards in the ATCO and the TALA upstarts."

She paused again, surveying the room:

"To show our commitment to this new security in the Austro-Asian region, the recently announced war games in the Pacific will go ahead with full Karthspiri support. As well as this, our allies in Japan and New Zealand will also be participating with an open invitation to the Russian and Mexican Governments. Not only will we learn from one another's tactics and experiences, share some of the world's most advanced equipment and ensure our ability to work together efficiently but we'll show to the world that our continent is no longer willing to be ignored or pushed around; the Empire and her allies will no longer be sidelined to make way for the will of the morally decaying hegemonies of the ATCO!

Following this speech, the Prime Minister's approval rating has shot up from 50 to 70%, a welcome boost to both her and her National Front party before January's election.

Election Campaign kicks off
Although the official campaign period is yet to start, Prime Minister Larathael was addressing the National Front Party vanguard in her home state of Falinesti. In the most fiery speech of her career, even more so than the one given to Parliament several weeks back, the Prime Minister promised that, in the event of a National-led Government, she would embark upon a new military expansion; funding new R&D projects, increasing troop and equipment numbers and boosting the presence of Karthspiri troops around the globe. Being showered in flowers from the crowd, the Prime Minister continued to push on with economic reforms. Although the Empire has seen much growth over the past century, many areas of the country remain poor in-terms of development and some sectors, such as agriculture, are in need of major restructuring and modernisation.

ATCO Forces In Canal Sent Away
After spending weeks trapped in the canal zone, the Mexican government allowed the ATCO troops to leave with their guns. Not a shot was fired by anyone as the troops were loaded onto buses. They will be taken to Panama City Airport to be flown to the Northern Border at Juarez. From there they will be allowed to cross back into their lands.

Karthspiri Soldiers Land in Veracruz
Engineers from the Karthspiri Army were welcomed into Veracruz as part of a relief effort. The Engineers will help in finishing the reconstruction of Mexico. Thus far above 45% of the country has been rebuilt.


Military Spending Increased

With the publication of this financial year's budget, an increase in military spending has been declared. The Defence Force budget has up until this point been 1.5 per cent of the GDP or 4.5 billion Nieuw Zealandian dollars. This will be increased to 2 per cent or 6 billion Nieuw Zealandian dollars.

This move has been praised by the majority of the population and the Centrists, citing the current state of world affairs. However, the liberals are against the increase in NZDF spending, saying that it makes Nieuw Zealandia 'look like a warmongering nation'.

Doctor-Assisted Suicide Legalised

The 'Doctor-Assisted Suicide for the Terminally Ill' bill has passed through Parliament today with a 74 per cent majority. This bill will allow patients with terminal illnesses to end their own lives with the assistance of a medical professional, granted that the patient is an adult.

Woah Woah. When was this discussed?...

Also, "trapped" is a weird way to describe ATCO naval superiority in American waters. ;)
