Vulcan Island

The Arch-Imperium grows concern regarding an Ide Jiman military establishment located on Vulcan Island directly off the coastline of the Arch-Imperium.

The Imperial Stratagem wishes to discuss possibilities of Ide Jima ceding the island to the Arch-Imperium's sovereignty zone. With the TCN threat now eliminated, there seems little reason for Ide Jima to hold a military base at this location and the Arch-Imperium wishes to gain this island as part of its own establishment.

The Arch-Imperium, in addition, is prepared to recognize Ide Jima's full authority in dealing with the territories formerly held by TCN, provided that the entire island of Vulcan, is ceded.

OOC: Vanarambaion and Akiiryu also have interests and assets on that island and while I can't speak of Vanarambaion I can tell you Akiiryu is not about to give up its interests to Xheng. Indeed, why would any of the three nations concerned wish to cede their rights to Xheng simply to allow Xheng to build a military base there? More broadly speaking former TCN is an open plot which Xheng has no rights over at all. Xheng's recognition, simply, put, would mean nothing at all.

I am saying this OOC because I am assuming that you are unaware of the Van and Akiiryu presence on the island.

Statement:

The Federal Republic is unwilling to simply 'give' land away to the Arch-Imperium. Whilst we are aware of the threat this could potentially pose to the Arch-Imperium -- we remind them that we are technically allied to them, and that the level of threat is very low. Whilst Vulcan is useless in its original task at the moment - we are sure that other alliance members would agree - that at the very least, a trade of lands is in order. The alliance will not give Vulcan up with anything in return.

In the meantime, all we can do is assure the arch imperium that no ICBMs or WMDs are stationed on the island.

As an ally of the Arch-Imperium, we are requesting that Ide Jima permit the Arch-Imperium construct a port that maintains Xheng sovereignty on the island. With this presence the threat of foreign forces near the Arch-Imperium shall be significantly diminished.

Akiiryu advises Ide Jima reject this request as it is a defacto to claim to sovereignty over Vulcan. Moreover, Akiiryu request to know why Xheng refuses to involve Akiiryu and Vanarambaion - nations that also have stakes in Vulcan - in these discussions? Akiiryu will not tolerate Xheng having any presence on Vulcan, military or otherwise.

To exclude the Arch-Imperium, the nation that is closest and might I add, has a formidable force present, from the island, seems rather ..... illogical, in reference to Vulcan island, which is supposed to be neutral. The safety of the Arch-Imperium is at risk, and we do not have any guarentees so far that the island shall remain safe for Xheng citizens and tourists.

OOC: Xheng stop it. Akiiryu is twice the size of the Xheng-Dynasty, as is Ide Jima. Vanarambaion is roughly three times the size. Moreover, the Island was owned by these three nations long before you came to Europa. Moreover, NO threat has been offered to you.

OOC: Let's tone this down, people...

We are glad to see that Xheng has moved fleets away from the island. Whilst Vulcan is of geostrategic importance, it would be useless for colonisation - Mt. Vulcan, one of Europa's larger volcanoes has seen to that. The alliance is unwilling to give up the island, it is vital for the protection of our interests in southern Europa. Given the numbers of Alliance forces on the island, the threat posed to Xheng is non-existent - especially with Xheng's ally Byzantium Nova also nearby. Alliance forces will not give up Vulcan without something in return that fulfils the same duty as Vulcan.

We accept Ide Jima's assurance that there is no threat from the military establishment on Vulcan. In fact, we now consider it to be an asset. With Ide Jima and the Xheng fleets nearby, it seems unlikely that Akiiryu would dare to act hostile towards our nation, especially with their own base there, within range of Xheng ballistic missiles.

As an ally of ours, we do request that Ide Jima allow our fleets to dock there for maintenance and refuel, specifically in the Ide Jiman section, as that location is free from Akiiryu's ambitions.

We may be able to come to an agreement over ship re-supply, however - entire fleets is a bit too much. The hastily erected port on Vulcan can hardly handle Ide Jiman shipping, let alone Akiiryan and Vanarambaion shipping. There are 4 Mitsuhiran class supply ships based on the island, we can use them re-supply your ships in the proximity of Vulcan island.

If Ide Jima would be interested in allowing Dynastic International to develope a large port facility in that area, the possibilities of Ide Jima creating a very lucrative trade port would be possible.

In addition, we recommend the promotion of Casinos, Resorts, and other entertainment establishments that would make the port, one of the most sought-after destination spots in all of Europa. Many Xheng corporations have expressed interest, such as Royal Star Entertainment, PetroEnerGen, and Dynastic International itself.

Akiiryu remains amazed by Xheng's constant implications that the Sublime Principate offers any kind of threat to the Arch-Imperium. Anyone who has witnessed the actions of both states in the last few weeks will note that Akiiryu has not been the state which has offered threats or deliberately attempted to raise tensions in the area. In recent weeks Xheng has: 1. attempted to force nations to stop having relations with Akiiryu because the SPA would not submit to joining the Coalition (which Xheng seems to think it runs), and 2. attempted to claim ownership of Vulcan island, despite the fact it is already the property of other nations. When rebuffed the Arch-Imperium resorted to implied threats and aggressive and unnecessary provocative statements - many of which were designed (unsuccessfully) to defame Akiiryu.

The Sublime Principate will state for the Nations of Europa that it has not territorial ambitious in Southern Europa. Xheng it seems cannot say the same thing.

Ide Jima has made a proposal. Unfortunately the geographic climate of Vulcan would not allow for any large scale permanent constructs. Despite extensive work by the engineer corps, there is no scope for a full scale harbour. Vulcan is of little use to civilian troops. We can see no need for tension in this region, and the Ide Jiman government urges for it to be bought to a close.
