MEDIA RELEASE - GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ON THE SHOOTING DOWN OF
FLEUR DE LYS AIRCRAFT.

Today, The Prime Minister along with his National Security Advisor and the National Security Council held an emergency meeting in regards to the disaster that took place today in @Derthalen airspace. Officials from the Armed Forces, Gallambrian Intelligence Agencies, and representatives from other Government ministries attended. They discussed what more we have established about the nature of the incident; the latest information on the precursors to the incident; and progress towards a credible investigation into the incident.

While it is too early to be categoric about the cause of the incident, the growing weight of evidence suggests that the @Fleur de Lys aircraft was shot down by a Derthalan Air Force fighter aircraft. This is backed up further by information provided to the National Security Council by Royal Gallambrian Air Force's Airspace Surveillance Section that stated, that there was no prior communication between the two aircraft and that the Derthalan Air Force fighter aircraft acted without provocation.

We believe that it is vital that an international team of specialist investigators are able to access the wreckage to establish the full facts of what  happened and to ensure that the remains of the victims are returned to their loved ones as soon as possible.

Furthermore, the Prime Minister and the National Security Council has asked the Chief of Defence Staff to provide support of any kind to Fleur de Lys and to step up concentrated Airspace Surveillance of the airspace approaches over Derthalan.

MEDIA RELEASE - BURNETT GOVERNMENT TO ESTABLISH NATIONAL SPACE AGENCY

 

The Burnett Government has committed to establishing a national space agency to ensure Gallambria has a long-term plan to grow its domestic space industry.

The Minister for Science and Innovation, the Hon Kylie Bormann, said the establishment of a space agency is one of the key issues being examined by the Expert Reference Group appointed to review Gallambria's space industry capability.

"The global space industry is growing rapidly and it's crucial that Gallambria is part of this growth," Minister Bormann said.

"A national space agency will ensure we have a strategic long-term plan that supports the development and application of space technologies and grows our domestic space industry."

"The agency will be the anchor for our domestic coordination and the front door for our international engagement."

Former GSRA Chief Dr Stephen Phillips is chairing the Reference Group, and its review is well advanced.

The Reference Group has sought views from across the country from industry, government and society, which will be used to inform our plan to expand this important and exciting sector.

The Reference Group has received almost 200 written submissions in response to its issues paper, and more than 400 people have been consulted through roundtables in each state.

Meetings have also been held with key stakeholders, including federal and state governments.

Feedback from the extensive consultation process has overwhelmingly shown the need for the establishment of a national space agency.

The Reference Group will now develop a charter for the space agency for inclusion in the wider strategy being brought forward by the end of May 2018.

MEDIA RELEASE - PRIME MINISTER AUTHORISES £150M IN FUNDING FOR GSIRO & GNL

Today, Prime Minister Nadia Burnett has reversed a controversial Greenwald-era decision to cut funding to Galllambria's public science research organisations, by authorising 150 Million Pounds in funding for GSIRO and the Gallambrian Nuclear Laboratory.

This funding authorisation will see operations for the two bodies continue for the next 5 years.

    • The Verde Blockade
      To whom it may concern. As you may be aware, the Socialist Federation of Ahrana have recently launched a sizeable convoy of militarised ships along a route that will take them to Xara, a nation in the Mediargic Sea that Ahrana claims to control. As of late, growing tensions within the Canamo region have led the United States to become increasingly wary of the actions of the Socialist Federation, such as the formation of the Confederation of Independent Socialists, allowing an autonomous region controlled by Derthalen, and of course, succumbing to a questionable communist regime. With your great nation being a close ally and firm friend of the United States, we humbly ask of you to support us in preventing Ahrana from having their sinister way. I ask of you to enact a naval blockade in the waters of the Verde Sea, therefore preventing Ahrana from progressing towards their destination.

    • A New Mother
      It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Reverend Mother Hannah McKey. The Reverend Mother is the head of the Bene Gesserit faith, the person responsible for guiding our Sisterhood, its followers and mankind towards the goal of preparing for the next great cataclysm to face humanity. Additionally, the Reverend Mother is the Head of State of the Theocracy of Kaitaine and thus holds responsibility for our nation's path in the world. Over the next four days, our membership will undertake ancient rituals to determine the new Reverend Mother who shall inherit the responsibility of continuing Reverend Mother McKey's good work.

    • The Thalassan War
      The seas were calm on a November morning as the Giokton submarine I-23 cruised along the Tiauhai Sea. She was one of the several submarines dispatched under the top-secret Operation Barrage, launched after Giokton spies uncovered Andallan plans to further reinforce Liamchia, an Andallan territory on Giok Island. The day before, the SFS Teuvo Antonnen, a Kristian Steffenssen-class troop transport, departed Andalla for Liamtsia with 2,553 soldiers and crew on board...

    • Crisis in the Assemblée Nationale
      A little resume for those too lazy to read everything. A Société Ouverte (Mécra’s Party holding the absolute majority in the National Assembly) Deputé Saint-Étienne insulted his ex-political opponent from the 2015 elections for the Député seat during an interview with a journalist. Following this, the ex-opponent Monsieur Dumont asked for a duel, which took place in a forest with 5 witnesses and an arbiter. But on the 3rd round, Monsieur Saint-Étienne disrespected the rules of engagement, ending in an incident and his death. This launched an argument about the Société Ouverte Party’s honour. This made their adversaries and opponents enjoy the situation, to attack the Party along the Président du Conseil Mécra.

      Bureau 33, one of the scariest within Het Apparath. The Identity Replacement Department did exactly that, they replaced your identity if you didn't play along, if you were deemed a risk. Over the years, they had perfected the art. You didn't agree to their plans, to their advice, to their aid? No worries, enjoy the rest of your life. Until, you know, something gruesome happened like your caravan exploding with you in it, your motorcycle's front wheel suddenly getting a mind of its own while you're doing one-hundred-and-fifty kilometers on a strangely empty piece of highway or that stripper you hired for a private dance suddenly starts choking you with her amazingly muscular legs.

    • Minister Hall, Peoples Palace, Moskovo, SF Ahrana| 1200 AT| 24 April 2018 Ivanoff had a rough morning dealing with Operation Intel, Government Bills and now a rift in Ahranaian Politics thanks to President Duval. Ivanoff had just gotten back from his private residence from being ill for a couple of days and only those closest to him knew about it, as for the rest of the Government they were told he was in Vulgus Supra on Government Business and that no one outside the Government is to know of this. Ivanoff was watching International News yesterday and saw the session of the Legislature of the United States and what was said about Ahrana and so forth. Ivanoff was so displeased with how the truth of what is happening in Xara has been twisted by Duval to further make sure the TRIDENT nations are united against Ahrana and her People. Even the words Duval used to describe the People of Ahrana was distasteful.  Ivanoff called for a Government Meeting today and as he was walking to the Minister Hall for the meeting he stopped at the door and listened, he heard, "Duval, Xara, Military, Summit" and so on. So they think they know what this is about hmm he said to himself. He opened the door and the announcer stated: "Secretary General, Greggor Ivanoff!" Everyone stood at attention and Ivanoff walked to his Chair and looked at everyone around him and said, "At Ease, please sit." Everyone sat except for him, he stood to gather his thought and began talking: I am sure that everyone in this room has been or was informed about the Speech Duval gave yesterday in the Session of the United States Legislature. I am also sure you are aware of the comments he has made towards our people and nation. During our Summit I was sure the things discussed would help our relations and I thought the Summit went very well, yet he has made a mockery of Ahranaian Diplomacy and has now stirred the Political Pot here in Ahrana with his recent comments. I am not sure exactly why the comments have been made or the reasoning's and I do not care to know them.  Today I received a letter from President Duval to visit the United States of @Prymont, which I intend to do. Today the Congressional Houses will be debating a bill that was introduced yesterday by my Deputy Minister on Fishing Quotas, which is why he wishes to have a visit. Our number one priority has also been to preserve the nature around us and we have done a great job at doing so. Since the rise of the last Kingdom many parks, owned by the Government still to this day, have been created as Nature refuge, Wildlife Refuge and so on. Overall we have 50 total Refuge Lands under the Governments Authority and it will stay that way for the foreseeable future. Now our Political Problem here, the remarks made by President Duval has caused the Democratic Socialist Alliance to reappear from their banishment. They have been barred from all Political Affiliations and can never be part of any form of Government. The punishment for those who help give them seats in any Level of Government is severe and is carried out by the People's Court. Therefore I urge you all not to try anything to that level. Next Month I am calling a Supreme People's Assembly Session and all will attend. I will be placing a motion on the floor for debate and amending the Constitution about Minorities. If any of you have an questions to give me now is the time.............alright then this Meeting of Government is done and over, thank you for your time. As Ivanoff was walking to his Office his assistant, Ace, caught up with him and gave him a letter from the Intel Office for the Canamo Sea region. They had officially confirmed his Travel Plans to Prymont and would be able to leave at a moments notice. Now all he had to do was send a letter to Duval letting him know when to expect his arrival. He continued walking and was thinking to himself exactly how the DSA would try to make their way back into Government. Sadly he arrived to his office faster than he thought and then begun his reply letter to Duval.

    • The Emperor's New Clothes The Emperor has long supported the nudist rights movement in Asgeirria, and has made it a point to promote marches and the acceptance of nudists, including the desegregation of beaches, bathrooms, and restaurants. Following several counterprotests, the Keeper of Man appeared famously nude for his televised address of the nation, issuing the following speech: "I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the Asgeirrian moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Nudist's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the Conservative Asgeirrian or the cold, but the Asgeirrian moderate who is more devoted to 'order' than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says 'I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;' who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Nudist to wait until a 'more convenient season.'

      Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection." Regis Celestia has refrained from commenting on the nationally-televised spectacle, though several officials said, on condition of anonomity, that they had some concerns at how the publicity of the Emperor's dingleberries might affect foreign relations.
