Nanako Island wrote:"Well, I think we both agree on the idea that key sectors such as defense, energy and some portions of transportation shouldn't be part of a first hand treaty. My nation, in its current situation of an archipelago, primarily imports agricultural goods and raw materials. Exempting custom fees on agricultural products would enable you are producers to easily access Nanakian market, and would enable my fellow citizens to have access to competitive price food.

Obviously, this is a proposal favouring Calicambrian businesses : what Nanakian products would you relief of tax ?"

"I understand," replies President Lambert. "In exchange to the generous Nanakian proposal, my government is ready to propose to Congress for the abolition of tariffs on all Nanakian products with the exception of products relating to the aerospace and military armament industries as there are strict laws in the United States currently that heavily scrutinizes such imports."

Meridujo wrote:A few of the ministers nod and smile at Prime Minister's comment. "Perhaps it is a habit we stole from you," one of them jokes, before being slapped on the arm by an accompanying secretary of indigenous looks.

The interior of the Palace was renovated following the revolution in a heavily organic Mediterranean style. The walls of the Palace are stuccoed in rhizomatic patterns, creating the feeling that the walls themselves have veins inside of them, and that the Palace is a living being. Every corridor was altered to have slightly rounded sides and the arches of entranceways are tall, rounded, and adorned with wooden patterns of plants and wildlife. The marble columns holding up the ceiling and various interior balconies and bridges within the Great Hall were specifically designed to resemble bone and cartilage. Paintings depicting Meridujoan nature and historical South American characters and events - most particularly Simón Bolívar and Toussaint Louverture. Socialist realist art is also present, depicting plantation and agricultural workers, images of streets being rebuilt by multicultural communities, and indigenous empowerment.

The group eventually arrives in a large, wide rounded room, with a circular table in the middle, set with fine cutlery, frosted wine glasses, and ceramic coffee cups. Adjacent to the room is the kitchen, as evident by the wide window with wooden flaps. From the kitchen flows out a deeply homely aroma.

President Ruiz and her staff take their seats at the table, already bustling with small talk and discussion as they await their first entrées: vegetable polenta served with a glass of Zweigelt.

The Prime Minister laughs. "Perhaps," he says.

The Prime Minister trails President Ruiz into the palace dining room, feeling at ease due to the similarity of the design to Medoynian buildings and the Palace of Bastille (official residence and workplace of the Prime Minister in Medoynia) in Menton. After President Ruiz and Meridujo officials take their seats at the table only does the Prime Minister and the Medoynian delegation take their seats.

He converses with the Meridujans nearest to him, on topics ranging from business to social services.

After some time, the polenta and red wine are served. As she swallows her first spoonful of polenta, President Ruiz turns towards the Prime Minister.

"How are you liking Meridujo so far, Prime Minister? I hope the heat isn't too much for you yet," she asks, half laughing. "It can get much worse around these times."

To his excellency Fahed Al-Sabah, Sultan of The Sultanate of Monacari:

The Republic of Montevento is a firmly secular state, whose population is mostly irreligious, which generates a relative disinterest on the part of citizens and the government in religious matters, both internal and external to Montevento. However, the state has a deep respect for those who still decide to profess a religion.

Despite this, we consider it appropriate to request the opening of a Monteventani embassy in the capital city of Monacari, so that we can establish cordial relations despite our differences and work together for the development of our economies, cultures and people. Rufo Sirianni, a young Monteventani diplomat with a particular interest in the middle east and the Arabic language has been appointed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to conduct the diplomatic exchanges between our two countries from now on.

The Republic of Montevento also invites the Sultanate to establish an embassy of Monacari in our capital city, as it could prove beneficial for the small Islamic communities living in Montevento, especially those in the small city of Komori in the Province of Essequibo, where most of the Islamic community of the country lives after Muslim immigrants from the middle east arrived to those lands several years ago.

WORKERS STRIKE IN GDANSK!

Dock workers in the port city of Gdansk, from various domestic shipping companies, will go on strike today, according to a proclamation from the National Wharf and Dock Worker's Union (NWDU). NWDU has called a strike, effective from Monday for workers in the port of Gdansk and nearby towns. NWDU is an influential trade union along Aressna's Baltic Sea coast. It was formed in the years after the Second World War, by survivors of Kubat's union purges of the 30s. It was banned by Jaromir Bucharin's Government in the 50s (introduced during Bucharin's the Party is the one and only Union! speech), and continued to conduct underground renegade activity, a thorn in the Revolutionary Worker's Party's side until it and other trade unions were legalised during reforms in the 90s. It never lost its rebellious past, however the Union's administration has come forward as a supporter of the current regime, applauding the efforts of the new multi-party system. Despite this, strikes like the one called today are not common.

The strike is in protest of poor working conditions, which according to a NWDU spokesperson - who appeared before Ressian media today, along with supporting union officials - have continued for 'far too long'. The spokesperson continued: 'We know of mistreatment of female workers, conditions violating safety regulations, intensive bureaucratic process resulting in worker's left with no luxury allotments - no extra Units in hand - living (barely) off basic supplies from the Government, all of this from the Gdynia-Gdansk area; 'New Industrial Aressna's shining star'. Members of our union have applied to ombudsmen and relevant local government agencies, without a word in return, or offers of hush money. The NWDU will no longer stand idle in such injustice. The people, united, will never be defeated!' The spokesperson signed off with a line from Międzynarodówka (The Internationale), fist raised: 'Each at the forge must do their duty, And we’ll strike while the iron is hot!'

The strike is expected to bring port Gdansk to a stand-still, with at least 3.5k workers set to strike on Monday. Also on Monday, a march from port Gdansk to the local Government House has been planned and approved. The NWDU wishes to raise international media attention to the injustices in the area, and directly challenge the government, many of whose companies the worker's work for. So far the Government has released no official statement, but deputies from the People's Congress have dismissed the strike as 'unimportant' and 'locally-bound'. Locals in Gdansk have come out in support of the strikers, many inspired to join the rallies for other reasons, such as poor funding from the National Government and unfair treatment at commune sessions (bi-weekly binding town meetings relating to local government policies, attended by all eligible voters, in theory). State Police are preparing for possible tensions, however NWDU has promised a peaceful protest.

Febrruary 8, 2020 - Peace Island

President Wisconsin was sitting in the bench in the park behind The Water Manor aka The President House in Peace Island when one of his assistant approached smiling, a young blonde fresh from Vivian University.

"Mr. Wisconsin—" the president's assistant was interrupted by the president himself sighing, "Call me Declan, I already said it a couple times already, I don't like formalities, you will be working with me for five years, I'll be sick of you calling me that."

"Yeah. I'm sorry Mr— I mean Declan." the young said.

"What do you want Hayden?" Declan asked him.

Hayden smiled brightly, his blonde hair and blue eyes were cute though, "I got a great news from Ministry of Economics."

Delcan looked at him with surprising looks and arched his eyebrows giving the 'what is it' look.

"Ministry of Economic have been calculating that we could do another Tax Cut in March, we've surplus in National Budget and we can cut Sales Taxes, Corporate Taxes, and Trade Tarriff about 0.5 - 2.5 %." Hayden explained while looking at the president who insisted to called by his first name.

"Oh my, that's pretty great actually. Okay, let's contact Jordan Eisenburg from Eustrastan Investment Bearau, Gladys Torenne from Eustrastan Labour Association, and Jessica Lewis from Eustrastan International Trade Community. We can hold an emergency meeting on Sunday and we can discuss about the further tax cuts. Is that clear Hayden?"

"Yes sir." Hayden saluted and went inside leaving Eustrastan First Man alone in the park.

Republic of Medoynia Communiqué
Prime Minister Joseph Caruana | February 8, 2020

The Embassy of the Republic of Medoynia has issued a Level II travel alert for Medoynian citizens, advising additional precautions when traveling in Gdańsk and a recommendation to avoid all protest areas.

The Prime Minister’s Office also would like to know about the possible implications of the strike that would have on the Medoynian economy as there is a small but sizable amount of trade between Medoynia and Aressna.

Aressna
It seems we have a long border with you on your southern flank. particularly Wallachia, where our Semi-Autonomous Communist Province is located. It would be likely that they would be partially inspired by Aressna's communist party and its doctrines. anything specific that would stand out between Aressna's communist doctrine and Stalinist/Leninist doctrine? and would Aressna's stances on spreading communism have led to it supporting the rebel forces that Valkiir Allied with during the war that led to Valkiir annexing that region?

If they had supported either politically or directly the Wallachian Communist Party that would give Aressna a significant bit of influence on Wallachia and by extension a direct route to the ear of Greater Valkiir in general. Valkiir itself has two Socialist/communist movements. One revolutionary pushing for a complete conversion to a totally communist state dismantling and replacing al former social, political, and governmental structures to a purely communist system, the other Democratic Socialists who are working to introduce socialist policies and structures and slowly transition to a communist system keeping some of the traditiona elements of Valkir society intact.
