Recommended Posts

Welcome to the serene kingdom’s foreign affairs forum run by the Esonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs! Here the nations of the wurld can directly communicate with Esonice, and hear what the kingdom has to say on international affairs! 

Esonice is an open minded nation ready to start relations with any and all nations on Eurth; especially those nations that are willing to have closer ties to Esonice, be it economic, cultural or otherwise. The serene kingdom’s current focus in foreign policy heavily leans on starting new trade and economic agreements to mutually grow and expand prosperity and exchange among nations and the Esonian nation itself, and bring the wurld closer together! Esonice is also happy to join any international organisations of interest! As of currently Esonice is an observer state to both LAANN (League of Alharu and Aurelian Native Nations) and the EOS (Entente of Oriental States), Esonice is also the current general secretary nation of GIN (Group of Island Nations).

The map below shows a simplified map of Esonice's relations with the international community!!

The current head minister of the Esonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is Yumi Kochi from the Blue Flower Conservative party (BFP). All foreign matters and requests shall be passed on and processed by her.

As a result of seeing current international events unfold, the Esonian government is happy to announce to the global community that foreign aid will be increased and directed to certain regions to help and keep peace and goodwill among nations and peoples of the wurld. 

 

Alongside the increase to foreign aid spending in collaboration with Esonian non-profit organisations such as the Esonya Foundation international; a humanitarian non-profit organisation that focuses on rebuilding impoverished and wartorn communities, help with education and give humanitarian aid. A refugee scheme is planned to be opened to certain regions to give the individuals there an opportunity to migrate to and be given the ability to start a new life and work in Esonice. The refugee scheme, which will fall under the REP program (Resettlement and education plan), will include an Esonian language course to give candidates an understanding of the Esonian language to an intermediate level while also giving an insight into Esonian everyday life and culture. Also part of the refugee scheme, participating businesses from Esonice seeking new employees will come and give trade courses, apprenticeship opportunities, and employment opportunities which will include interviews. Candidates will also be given the opportunity to demonstrate their skills to companies if they’re already talented in that area of work such as programming, engineering, medicine, and other practical skills. Background checks of candidates will also be included, with those having certain criminal records being excluded from the program.

 

The REP program will also include the SOP (Student Opportunity Program) which will grant opportunities for younger individuals between the ages of 17 and 21 to study abroad in Esonian schools and universities. Having their foreign student tuition costs cut by 80% by the Esonian ministry of education, and given special support in their chosen course. Several universities, colleges, art schools and others have already voiced support for the scheme and joined the SOP. After graduation, students will be given the choice between settling in Esonice, or moving back home to their families.

 

REGIONS PARTICIPATING 

 

Several regions in the wurld were raised as possible candidates to be part of the directed foreign aid and the REP program. But only a couple got selected as they’re believed to be the best candidates out of all the possible regions that got discussed. The winning candidates are

 

CERIS

 

Ceris, specifically the nations of Uthington, Secryae Hodrea, Rewhain, Nesneubar, the Occlait, Rusheau and many parts of Western Ceris were the top to be selected for foreign aid and the REP program. Special flights from in and out of Ceris and Esonice will be organised to give volunteers and Cerisers safe travel and protection from harm.

Many humanitarian non-profits, most major non-profit being the Esonya Foundation International, will be operating in Ceris to help rebuild infrastructure, build new infrastructure such as schools and hospitals and give humanitarian aid to those in need. Foreign aid and the REP program does not apply to the NAU/ @Seylosian controlled territories and Sentist controlled territories.

 

SITALLO

 

Sitallo was selected as the second top candidate, but will not be receiving any foreign aid due to the current events in the nation, and the situation with @Metztlitlaca which will not be commented on. Instead of foreign aid, Sitallans seeking to migrate from the nation will be granted the REP program which will operate in general Palisi’s territory with his approval. NGOs will set up refugee camps for candidates to be processed through the refugee scheme. The SOP will also operate, with younger individuals with the approval of their guardian(s) being given the opportunity to apply to Esonian schools, with the added benefit of Sitallan students having their foreign student tuition paid completely by the Esonian ministry education due to the situation in Sitallo. 

 

Sitallans in general Palisi’s territory will also benefit from humanitarian aid efforts, with basic necessities such as food and water being provided to communities and families including medical assistance.

 

OTHER REGIONS THAT WERE MENTIONED -

 

The other regions that were mentioned to be given foreign aid and become part of REP program were:

 

@San Castellino

Qubdi 

Suverina 

 

The reasons why these regions were not selected are because they’re either

1. Controlled by a hostile government

2. Region hasn’t undergone years of war/destruction

3. Very limited or no way of giving help to the people there

 

REACTION AND STATEMENTS -

 

Many in Esonice have commented on the government’s directed foreign aid and REP program such as Foreign ministry minister Yumi Kochi. “I think it’s an amazing thing we’re trying to do.” she said.  “It will help and improve the lives of many people in the selected regions and give them another chance at life. And it's just wonderful to think that we are able to do this” she continued tearing up. “ I hope that this will improve Esonice’s international image as a nation willing to help those in need, and will leave a good impression in the memories of the people we help. And I sincerely hope that we’ll be able to continue doing such heart-warming programs in the future”. 

Executive director of Esonya Foundation International. “We’re happy and pleased that the Esonian government has decided to help us in our efforts internationally to help the unfortunate in the wurld” he said. “We’re eager to see what comes off it.”

 

A government funded study has also shown that the majority of Esonians are either supportive or very supportive of the REP program and more foreign aid. 

 

But, just as there were many positive responses to the program, there were many criticisms. Regional representative of Kumiko stated that “why should my constituents have to pay for the mishandlings and problems of foreigners?''. But his and many similar comments have been targeted as “heartless” by supporters of the REP program. Many far-right individuals have also come out against the program. Stating that “the scheme is a danger to the cultural and societal stability of the Esonian people'', but such comments have been dismissed as paranoid and racist. Some far-left individuals have also come out against the program, stating that “the program is likely going to depress the wages and working standards of the working classes of Esonice, with foreign workers being prioritised over Esonian citizens”.

To: @Great Anglia

From the beginning of today, the Serene Kingdom of Esonice on the behalf of his serenity, Serene Prince Sanomi and the Esonian people would like to announce its discontent and hostility towards the almost evilly imperialistic ambitions of the rogue state of Anglia. The Esonian people have been watching closely with disgust as the events in Europa unfolded before their eyes on the television screens of our nation. The acts the Anglians are committing in the old wurld with the violent and illegal annexation of the Social Democratic Confederation, forcing submission upon the poor people of Suverina and infringing on the sovereignty of the nation of Qubdi is repulsive and completely unacceptable. These actions are a threat to the stability of all Eurth nations and international cooperation among us all.

We honourably denounce any and all actions committed by the rogue state of Anglia in the recent month, and Esonice demands Anglia to cease its abhorrent behaviour on the international stage and abandon its imperialistic ambition. If such actions continue, Esonice will have to take action and gather other nations to cooperate against the Anglians. Coming to the EOS, LAANN, and ATARA about the matter, and to convince other GIN nations to exclude Anglia from trade and impose pressure.

For now, Esonice is forced to impose sanctions on all Anglian products and trade with the state will be limited. With any Esonian businesses present in Anglia being demanded by the government to close down their operations or face more expenses and higher taxes as punishment for perpetrating Anglian aggression. Tourism from Anglia will also be banned as a consequence for the Anglian citizenry not pressuring their government to end the madness.

We hope that this will make the Anglian state think about what they have done and the dark times they’re bringing upon the wurld and its people.

Date - 7th of May 1990

To - Mayor of O'polis NCR @Orioni, City Council of Intreimore @Iverica, City Council of Protiva @Cashar

From - Maimedo city council 

 

Saiseyo (greetings) from the city of Maimedo to the fellow capital cities of O’polis, Intreimore and Protiva! With the globe becoming ever more interconnected through complex alliances, economic ties and trade, it's important that people across the wurld come to an understanding of one another. This is why Maimedo has come up with a renewed and modernised concept of “sister cities”!

 

What are sister cities -  

Sister cities, also known as town twinning is a concept that has existed for a few centuries with certain communities establishing mutual relations with each other from foreign lands. The modernised idea for the concept of sister cities is for two geographically and politically distinct localities to exchange something called “twinning charters” or “sister charters” which would formally establish agreements and relations among towns. Those agreements would encompass areas surrounding matters such as travel and education, forming business links, and promotion of cultural and commercial ties.

 

The proposal -

As to set an example for the rest of the wurld to follow. The city of Maimedo proposes that all four cities establish this new type of relationship amongst themselves. The proposal holds that -

  1. Educational partnership and the development of teaching programmes. 

  2. Student exchange program. Students of each city are given increased opportunities to study in the schools of each city.

  3. Cultural exchange programs. Opportunities to be exposed and immersed to the different cultures that come from our cities. 

  4. Tourism program including reduced travel fees. 

  5. Increased commercial ties in areas of trade, business, finance and investment.

 

We believe that these proposals for the foundation of our close relationships will mutually benefit everyone involved. Criticism and change is welcomed of course. And do not feel like these proposals are permanent and unchangeable, cities can always agree to modify and/or add on their agreements at a later date if so desired, including ending agreements. 

 

We hope to see a response from other city officials soon! 

 

Signed, by the representatives of the Maimedo city council.

Date: 8th of May 1990
To:  City Council of Maimedo
From: City Council of Protiva


Greetings and welcome from the grand capital city of Protiva of Centavo in the Incorporated States of Cashar! Behold and profit! What glorious ideas have come from the city of Maimedo in Esonice! Truly, truly, we would adore making this concept of sister cities not a mere concept but a reality the likes of which the wurld has never seen! Let us flow. We hereby accept your proposal with additional recommendations and caveats specific to the Incorporated States of Cashar:

1. The Incorporated States of Cashar's educational programs have some differences from what Esonians might be used to. Indeed, education is mandatorily sponsored by a large variety of businesses in Cashar in exchange for tasteful, family-friendly advertising in schools. We foresee no issues in Esonians receiving such sponsorships as sponsorships are merit-based, and our businesses are interested in the new, fresh ideas of citizens from other countries - however, we recognize that consent in advertising may be a necessity.

2. The Incorporated States of Cashar shall reduce travel fees to Protiva, Centavo in Cashar by 25% for most Esonian citizens of Maimedo, but 50% for Esonian students and Esonian business owners of Maimedo.

3. Businesses in Cashar have always enjoyed a minimal tax rate; though, historically, this tax rate has been higher for foreign businesses. As a show of goodwill, this tax rate will be cut by 25% for Esonian businesses of Maimedo making the tax rate still higher than those of Cashari businesses but much lower than they were previously. 

We are eager to begin developing stronger relationships between our two cities! Additionally, consider an offer that's too good to be refused - new, blue Ziintos - the gum that turns your lips, teeth, and tongue blue, and the flavor lasts and lasts! New, blue Ziintos. Chew blue.

Signed, the representatives of the Protiva City Council
