Allowing access to better technology would benefit the people and help advance our Tech Industry forward a bit. My main question about the Technology is where would these items be assembled and so forth? 

Since we're are on the topic of Technology, the Ahranaian Military is looking to invest into some hardware and to use the hardware in the newer vehicles and so forth. Would your Government be open to that idea as well?

Core wasn't sure what the answer to her last question would be but the Military was looking to advance itself along side the other countries.

"Our private sector manufactures relatively cheap electronics.  So those products would be manufactured here." said Polo, wondering why that question was even asked.

"Our government is currently not considering increasing military spending. Although we feel groups like Derthalen are a threat to us, we don't believe in preemptive strikes and do not consider ourselves to be presently in danger. We therefore have to politely decline that offer." said Polo after a short pause. Although he understood Ahrana's need for better military technology, he also knew that Mauridiviah simply didn't have the funds to help provide it.

"Any other sections of the economy that Ahrana is looking to improve?" asked Caballeros, trying to take the iniative from the President once more.

President Polo, I am also aware of your Countries strive in producing excellent Produce and Sugar and such and that has me intrigued a bit. In Ahrana we grow our Produce mainly in the late Spring, Summer and early Fall in order for our markets internally to flourish for the half of the year weather permits us to gros Produce. The types of Produce that is grown here in your Country is said to be of perfection that no doubt is due to the soil and the People who manage such Produce, it leads me to believe that your people know what they are doing when it comes to Fruits, Vegtabules and so forth including the Sugar crops. Xara is almost the only place in the Federation that produces any Fruits and Vegetables year round almost. Most of our sugar is imported as some people would have guessed. So what I am asking is would your Country be willing to become a major part of Ahranaian Society in the Produce side and experience a influx in profets and so forth?

Plus your Country and the Federation sees its fair share of tourist undoubtedly, what I propose in this area is to create a Program of Tourism Agencies that work together to find the best spots in each country all year round and to encourage people to travel there. Naturally, small Travel Agencies exist in Ahrana but creating a Channel for Travel Agencies in Ahrana and Mauridiviah to push for more travel in both Countries all year long.

 

Core wasn't sure how some of these things would be taken but she could tell this meeting was becoming a stalemate on both sides somehow she had to lighten the mood up.

Caballeros looked at Polo triumphantly. Finally, the Ahranian delegation was speaking a language that Mauridiviah could speak: agricultural products and tourism. Unfortunately, during that self-congratulatory stare, Caballeros lost the initative to the President once more.

"We would be delighted to provide Ahrana with agricultural goods. Perhaps we could remove restriction on Ahranian fish and Ahrana could remove restrictions on Mauridivian produce," President Polo then took a sip of water before continuing, "As to the tourism subject, Mauridiviah currently allows individuals with an Ahranian passport to enter the country for up to four months with the possibility of an up to two month extension visa-free. If Ahrana could similarly relax travel restrictions on individuals with Mauridivian passports, then we could start talking about mutually beneficial tourism." said Polo, asking himself how he'd sell a joint tourism advertising program to the unions.

Caballeros, meanwhile, looked on at his President, feeling robbed of his triumph.

I see no reason why the Ahranaian Federal Government couldn't relax regulations on Goods coming from Mauridiviah to help ensure a influx of goods in both of our Countries Markets. As for the travel restrictions, no formal restrictions exist as the former Administration had not got around to setting such restrictions Officially. The only form of a Restriction I am aware of is the amount of time a VISA from the Government Mauridiviah can last inside the Federation Legally which is three months. I am in the middle of creating and proposing to the Presidium of the Federation new travel requirement for Ahranaians Leaving and Coming back to Ahrana as well as Tourists and others. In this new proposal a VISA from a Foregin Government issued before leaving their mother Country will now last for six months before extension and when extending the VISA depending on the reasoning it can be done between the timeline of two months to two years depending on the reasoning for extension. As for the tourist VISA it will be given upon arrival in the Federation and its good for two years until expiration.

It is my hope with such new Travel Requirements the Tourism Industry will increase in Ahrana and that more and more money is spent by the tourists while they are in the country for their length of time. Hopefully this is seen as a satisfaction by you and your Ministers and so forth.

"Ma-" began President Polo, before he was cut off.

"Mauridiviah would be delighted to loosen specific trade restrictions on Ahranian goods since Ahrana is willing to do the same. I could draft it up with the Ahranian delegation after this meeting is concluded" said Caballeros, interrupting his own own president. "The planned Ahranian visa system is excellent and has our completely approval. If there is nothing else, I believe that this meeting can be swiftly concluded." continued Caballeros.

Core looked at Caballeros with a very mixed look as to his rudeness in interrupting the President while he was trying to talk, if one of her Ministers did that they would learn to regret such an action. She then looked at her Staff nodded and begun to pick their belongings up Core looked at Polo and begun talking to him:

President Polo it was an honor to meet you and I look forward to the future of our two great nations working together. I will begin preparations for what was talked here today and upon the end of my term if I am not re-elected of course I can assure you that the Ahranaian Government will continue to work with your Government on these things. Please do take care of yourself and I wish for you none other than a great rest of you day. Once again thank you for hosting me and my Delegation and I look forward to meeting you again some day in whatever fashion we meet, hopefully on good terms of course Mr. President.

Polo extended out his hand for a handshake and reprocated Ms. Colt's sentiment:

"It was also an honor to meet you, Secretary-General, and I likewise hope that our nations to continue to collaborate openly. We will be keeping up with the draft of the future trade agreement, and I hope that you win re-election Ms. Colt."

In the end, the meeting had been surprisingly productive. Ahrana agreed to open its borders to RFE, it would soon be holding general elections, a trade agreement was discussed, and the Ahranian government seemed on the path towards stability. The Mauridivian government was absolutely thrilled that he regressive and autocratic policies and alliances formed under Ivanoff were now being thrown away; Ahrana had distanced itself from Derthalen, and civil rights were once again being respected to their fullest capacity. Although Ahrana had a severe drug problem that would require careful handling, it would seem that the nation was overall recovering from the last year of turmoil, and Mauridiviah was willing to help Ahrana make the transition possible. There were only a few states in middle Argis that weren't complete backwaters, and Ahrana was one of them. If Ahrana's democracy lasts, it would be a major victory for democracy worldwide. As such, at least to the Mauridivian government, the risk of fostering a close relationship with Ahrana was more than worth it.

    • BREAKING: President Duval announces snap general election for late November; first Prymontian Rus elections due November 2nd NEW HALSHAM, COURTMARSH - President George Duval has confirmed that, amidst the rumours of the past few days, the United States will be holding a snap general election on November 30th. This will come as a surprise to few, as rumours and hints have been circulating since September that pressure within Courtmarsh House has been building for a new parliament. The public are holding Duval to account for the failure to meet election promises: lower military spending, reduce unemployment, increase public services spending, and stabilise the chaotic political situation of central Argis. Politicians are also unhappy with Duval, as the National Party are now being accused of rigging the historic July 2017 elections to hand themselves an overwhelming majority. Prymont's five main political parties have been given just under six weeks to prepare and publish their election campaigns. The National Party confirmed that Duval will be their President if their campaign is successful, and despite their declining support figures, they are still the party to beat. The People's Party, a centre-right conservative group headed by Felix Frey, are believed to be the biggest threat to the National's majority, as they appeal to the public by promoting capitalism and promising the generation of thousands of jobs. The United Prymont Future Party, another centre-left organisation much like the Nationals, are believed to be a slightly riskier alternative, as they promise to reverse the recent tax increases and lower the cost of living. PNN will provide detailed coverage of the lead-up to election day. In addition to this news, the President has also revealed that the newly formed Prymontian Rus will have their own general election on November 2nd, after months of trouble and turmoil. The USP humanitarian groups have been successful in quelling the disputes of the land, and have sought enough former and new politicians to create a varied political landscape. The National Party-backed Iskander Yegerov, of the National Rus Party, is a firm favourite for voters and fellow politicians alike to win the Premiership.  This news has not been met without trouble in the United States, as voters have gathered on the streets of New Halsham to protest Prymont's involvement in the new country. Many believe that the National Party are using the former Hellenic Rus state to gain further political control over central Argis, and to channel funds into boosting the United States' military capabilities. However, the 'takeover' of the country can be a positive investment, as engineers have already started work on the Canamo Canal in newly purchased southern lands bordering the Mediargic Sea, which will massively improve maritime trade with the area and propel local economies into significant wealth. 
      President Duval photographed shortly after announcing the snap general election.   Ostport state government shows plans for β3 billion 5-year renovation plan CANASTOTA, OSTPORT - In an annual state government public consultation, the Ostport state government have revealed a staggering three billion Prynd renovation and upgrade plan for the next five years. Ostport's considerable growth since the creation of the United States has been hard to ignore, and Canastota has long been the most populous city in the country. Many companies are now choosing to locate their headquarters in the state's capital, such as massive economic benefactors the Kaldestad Aamot Group, the Northern Bank of Ostport financial giant, and alpine equipment specialists Koren. It is also understood that the completion of the Canamo Canal in late 2019 will bring great trade benefits to Canastota, the docks of which are already receiving β300m for upgrades to handle the added capacity. This monumental amount of money for one state will be going to several good public causes. Public transport will be the recipient of approximately half of this capital, to invest in new transport hubs, rail and bus routes, modern equipment, and new job roles. Hospitals in the state will also receive funding to ease staff restraints and modernise equipment, while money will also go to supporting families who have lost jobs through the demise of the fishing industry as well as reorganising public services such as unemployment schemes, homelessness reduction plans, and charities chosen by the public. The plan is the brainchild of Jasper Revheim, a critical figure in Ostportian politics since the 2017 elections. Revheim represents the National Party, and hopes that this scheme will support his chances of reelection in November.
      High speed trains like these, pictured in Canastota's Sparby Station as part of the Canastota-New Halsham Line, will become common with the new funding.   Kaldestad Aamot Group purchases Central Canastota Sports Stadium KAP STADIUM, OSTPORT - The Central Canastota Sports Stadium was constructed in 1995 to bring sports in the United States to a global stage. It is the current home of the Prymontian Yetis, the country's national football team, as well as the Canastota Sharks, one of the top teams in the domestic league. Over the years, the CCSS has also hosted music concerts, rugby matches, and boxing events, showcasing the diversity of the arena. The Prymontian Football Association, the governing body of football in the United States, also calls the stadium it's home.  In 2012 the stadium underwent expensive renovations to bring it up to date with modern standards and equipment, as well as providing a higher seating capacity and providing space within the stadium grounds for public shopping areas to provide an additional source of income. In 2017, the stadium went up for sale, as the National Party sought to generate revenue and eliminate unnecessary expenditure. Today, a new owner has been found in the Kaldestad Aamot Group, one of the largest companies in the US.  The stadium has been renamed to the KAP Stadium, promoting the largest brand within the KAG, and CEO Erik Bruun has revealed plans to create a 'greater sports complex'. These plans include a superdome for domed sports and exhibition events, a velodrome, an aquatics centre, and an indoor karting circuit. The cost of purchasing the stadium and surrounding land is yet to be disclosed, but it is believed that the Group will be spending billions in the coming years to create the world standard in sporting complexes. 
      A CGI rendition of the planned superdome.   Prymontian Yetis top the standings in the Argic & Northern Alharun Football Association Cup CANASTOTA, OSTPORT - The ANAFA League Cup began on the 10th of October, with ten of the best teams from the two continents playing for glory. The Prymontian Yetis were successful in qualifying for the Cup, and drew in a friendly against Limonaia before the league commenced. In the first game, the Yetis beat @Soreana by 3 goals to 1, placing them atop the standings with the Limonaians. The second round of matches were held on the 20th, and Prymont were victorious once more, beating @Limonaia 2-1 to improve upon their previous draw. This win kept the Yetis at the top of the table, joined only in points by @Variota. Thus far, the Yetis have scored the most goals in the tournament, and have the greatest positive goal difference. The team couldn't have gotten off to a better start, and are receiving great praise from supporters, but pundits are yet to be complacent with their position. In years gone by, the Yetis have shown glimmers of hope, only to be shot down shortly after by poor plays, inadequate players, and failing leadership. Team manager Nojus Fauskanger assembled a mixed squad of promising youths and experienced veterans for the 2018 @Orioni World Cup, and while the team exited that tournament in the group stages, many applauded their performance. Now, with weak links out and new players in, the Yetis are showing stronger than ever, and many are confident that they will go on to the quarter finals in December. Others are adamant that it is only a matter of time before the team return to their old ways of failure and demise, but captain Vincent Borge hopes to silence those critics. "Our team has played brilliantly so far, and we've changed our training methods and squad rotation to ensure that we're always at our best. We've got some amazing players on board this year, and it's now the start of something great for Prymont's national football scene." The Yetis will next play @Seylos on the 24th of October.

    • Transport Ministry, Dartha "...of course, we'll give regular updates to the Senate as requested...thank you Senator Charvanek...and a good day to you too," and he hung up the phone. Miro Tumel had just been promoted to Chief Engineer, the immediate subordinate to the Minister, two weeks earlier after his predecessor was removed from his position due to a major disagreement with a powerful Jaridan senator. The identity of this politician was never divulged but he suspected that it was his newfound senatorial backer, Livana Charvanek. Now wasn't the time to contemplate this and rather to put his skills to work on getting the high-speed railway project off the ground. Up until today, Yhfillain, the more notable face of the Ministry, had been charged almost exclusively on operating the public transport system - the commuter railways of the three major cities, the intercity bus network, and the various riverbus services along the major waterways and along the coast of the Apnex Sea. Now, this body had been ordered to be responsible for the planning and construction of a high-speed line between the capital, Dartha, and the third-largest (yet second-most important) city, Peldred to the southeast in the Chetris Province. This was a completely foreign territory for the Ministry. He knew that the Senate wanted quick results to show the masses that they were addressing their concerns. He adjusted himself in his desk chair and pressed a buzzer on his intercom. "Elvia, can you come in here please?" he asked. She was his secretary, equally attractive and unemotional in her work. "Yes sir," she inquired, getting her pad at the ready to take down his instructions. "I want you to work with Jeran and Ulik in preparing a contract posting for an engineering and design consultant to help us with the high-speed project." She nodded in acknowledgment. "Both of them already have all the details from me as to what is required of our eventual contractor," he said pausing for a moment. "And one other thing," he began, Elvia was attentive, "Senator Chavarnek and I are supposed to meet every week, can you work with her aide and set it up." Elvia began skimming his calendar as he was saying this. "I'll get on it right away. Anything else sir?" she inquired. "Not now," he responded. "That will be all." She nodded once more and left the room. After she was out of the office, he picked up his phone and called Almor. "My friend, how are you...and the children...good, good. I am sure you heard the latest over Tlaru Aihrifv Rheilhhu...you have? Then I don't have to go over the entire story with you...is it possible for you to arrange a meeting between me, the Mayor (Maiori) of Peldred, Cildan; and Chetris Governor (Jahærenen) Lakol? Thank you. Call me on my cellphone the moment you have that three-way conversation confirmed...we'll talk again soon, have a good day..."

    • "...sounding second alarm at Via Zannoni 3381, fire has spread from vehicle to nearby housing..." "...additional units requested at Via Renauld 477 for domestic disturbance, neighbor reports argument regarding footballing..." "Turn that off." "...all available units in area, respond immediately to Embassy of Asgeirria, diplomatic quarter, this is an officer needs help call..." "...10-16, 10-16, respond immediately for support to Via Rocca de Baldi 88, fire unit reports being under attack by hooligans..." "I SAID TURN THAT RADIO OFF." Senior Inspector Prisco Vigliotti bellowed the order at the driver of the police bus, who finally switched off the dispatch radio. Vigliotti did not even bother to mutter a thank you before turning back to his platoon of riot officers. "We are thirty seconds out. Remember: no deadly force. This is the eighth game in ten years that we haven't lost. The president does not want this success undermined by bloodshed." The field officer of the Faramontese Paramilitary Police had barely finished that last statement when the bus suddenly lurched to a stop, nearly throwing the man -- the equivalent of a captain in the army -- to the ground. "I can't get any closer," the driver said, "there's fire trucks in the way." "Amateurs," Vigliotti remarked with contempt, eyeing the firefighting vehicles, before turning back to his men. "Alright, then. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR. DISEMBARK, NOW. MOVE!" The thirty paramilitaries onboard jumped to their feet and quickly exited the vehicle through its three doors, forming up on the pavement outside. They found a scene of utter chaos. The local and national police had been trying to keep order near Terrome Stadium, but clearly, that effort had failed. Injured policemen were sitting everywhere, being helped by firefighters and paramedics. Up ahead, Vigliotti could see that some firefighters and other volunteers were helping to maintain the police's haphazard riot line.
