[Nyantastan] Commonwealth Foreign Office


Recommended Posts

The Commonwealth all over the wurld: The Foreign Office, located on the Pelecena Marketstreet in Arkos, and its network of diplomatic missions around the globe shape Commonwealth foreign policy.spacer.png

This includes the analysis of wurld politics and crisis management on an international scale, the protection of human rights and the promotion of cultural exchange.

Arthur Cornwall Minister for Foreign Affairs opens the new Foreign Office with these Words. "We came to stay we already opened our Office for Foreign Economic Affairs, and now It's time that we not only open our Nation for Economic interests but also for Diplomatic options all over the Wurld. It is time that we as a Nation reach out to our Neighbors and Nations all over the Wurld to form a strong Connection between all of us. "

Chancellor Nyanta Akamura and President Evie Aksoy were there to open the Office Formally and holding a short speech. "We have done something a lot of Nations have done before us and we are very Proud of that step, It's time that we show the Wurld who we are and what we can offer. It's time to share our Values and Ideas with the Wurld and enter a new Age of Foreign Affairs. I hope strongly that this won't only Solidify our Nation as a whole but also bring us Prosperity and long-lasting Peace" -Chancellor Nyanta Akamura 
The Festivity was a big event and the first Official Statement of the new Government. After the Festivity was over the Heads of Government both got back to the Federal Diet Building while  Cornwall startet his work as Foreign Minister.

Your Excellency,

Our nations have not have much in the way of contact in recent years. The part of Argis that your nation is located in has not been one that has attracted the attention of the Greater Holy Empire. Certainly in recent years, much of the wurld's attention has either been drawn to northern and central Argis, where some of Eurth's foremost nations lie or to south-eastern Argis, which has often been a troubled area. This is especially the case in the light of the crisis on the island of Ceris and the Sentist War that followed close on its heels. This, sadly, has meant that the attention of the Holy Imperial Government has been turned away from the Auraid Bay and the nations that surround it but this does not mean that Tagmatium does not value those nations, nor see them as unworthy of becoming equal partners.

To this end, I would request that the Commonwealth of Nyantastan considers an exchange of embassies between our nations. This would be a good starting point for relations, enabling our nations to formalise what little contact that we have had in the past. The continent of Argis is a vibrant one and is only becoming more so. As it is, Tagmatium has many valued partners on your continent, even relatively close by to you – such as the Commonwealth of @Delamariato your south and the Christian Commonwealth of @Ebrary to your nation's east. The Greater Holy Empire is keen to maintain good relations with all Argic nations, yours included.

It is hoped by the Holy Imperial Government and the people of Tagmatium that this exchange of embassies – so long as your government agrees to it – will mark the start of a long, fruitful and friendly relationship between our two nations. I do not doubt that there is much that we could learn from one another. I hope that, in time, our nations become valuable partners to each other.

With God's blessing, this will be the start of a close and valued friendship between our nations.

Your Excellency,

It is true that we did not have much contact in these years but it would be a pleasure to change this from now into the Future.
It would be more than Appropriate to exchange Embassies and i will personally oversee the matter so we can quickly and efficiently exchange Embassies.
From there, I would be happy if we could use this common foundation to take the first steps towards a free trade agreement or similar links between business and culture. I think that our Nation can learn a lot from your Country and that the benefits we can provide for the both of us form a strong friendship.

 Also it would be a Pleasure to invite you to visit our Nation. I also would not say no to an Invitation to your Prosperous and Beautiful Country. As you already said i hope that will be the  start of a long, fruitful and friendly relationship between our two nations. 

With best regards,

 Arthur Cornwall

Your Excellency,

The Holy Imperial Government is heartened by your nation's acceptance of the offer of an exchange of embassies. I pray that this will be the start of a valued friendship between our nations, one that will not only lead to both Nyantastan and the Greater Holy Empire reaping both physical and spiritual benefits, but one that would be advantageous for all of Eurth. As nations have closer contact, it usually becomes clear that there are more similarities than differences, or that any differences are easily surmountable. This then means that peace and prosperity are much more attractive than conflict and parsimony.

I have discussed potential suitable candidates to act as an ambassador to the Commonwealth with my nation's diplomatic service. The candidate that has been selected is Proudentia Theodotia, a diplomat who has served as a deputy head of mission in several postings in Europa. The posting to your nation would represent the first time that Mrs Theodotia has been appointed as ambassador. However, the wealth of experience she brings to the role means that I do not doubt that she would serve admirably as my nation's ambassador. However, if you feel that, at this stage, your government would prefer another candidate, that can readily be arranged and no offence would be drawn from it.

Now, with regards to initiating discussions for a free trade agreement, reducing visa restrictions or stimulating cultural links, I can safely say that the Holy Imperial Government is keen to forge such agreements. I have taken the liberty of attaching a brief on my nation's economy, although I do not doubt your excellency is at least aware of some of the aspects of that already. Whilst I do not wish to denigrate or cast aspersions upon any aspect of my nation's economy, there are certainly niches into which Nyantastan may be able to find a receptive market – such as the automotive sector. Equally, from what I have been briefed on the Commonwealth's economy and climate, I can imagine that your nation may well be open to the import of agricultural products from my nation, especially foodstuffs.

However, this exchange of communications is not necessarily the place to go into detail on this. I would gladly organise the discussion of a trade deal between our nations, where these options, and more, can be investigated further.

With God's blessings, our nations will have a great future together.

From: Arthur Cornwall, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Commonwealth of Nyantastan

 

Your Excellency,

I would be more than pleased to accept your ambassador even if they are not rich on Experience, I feel it would be a suitable position to grow even further. I'm sure Mrs Theodotia  will be more than Capable to represent you well.   We also have discussed potential Candidates. As a Nation that is somewhat new to the Wurld stage  we lack some Experience in the Department. But I hope that Edwin Hayes will be the right person for the Job. He already worked greatly in influencing the Nations in our Commonwealth and is renowned for his ability to stay calm in every Situation. If you feel this would not suit you I would be more than please to make another suggestion for a Potential Candidate.   

In regard to initiating discussions for a free trade agreement, reducing visa restrictions or stimulating cultural links, I can safely say that the Nyantastani Government would also have a great interest in this. And we take no offense in your briefing about your economies. As you can fairly assume, we also did our homework. It would be indeed a wise move to import some of your Domestic Food products from Meats to fruits a wider variety  would be more than wished for not only by our People. I also assume that we could try to help you in the Automotive sector. But I would suggest something different, some of our biggest Companies are in Furnishing and Telecommunications. I would assume that these could be a considerable fit for our Economies. But we will also notify our Automotive sector to see if we can give you if not some of our products at least some expertise in that field.   

But you are Completely right this is not the place to go into detail.  It would be an Honor if you would organize such an  event. Please notify us if you have concrete plans on this matter. And do not hesitate to ask us to help with organization or hosting that event. 


For the best of our Nations,

Arthur Cornwall

      The Department of State (DOS) is the Kingdom of Rhodellia's foreign ministry. On behalf of the monarch of Rhodellia, King August III, as an executive department of the Rhodellian central government, the DOS is entrusted with advancing Rhodellian interests wurldwide. It pursues the nation's foreign policy, maintains international relations through various diplomatic missions, advises King August III and the Prime Minister (currently Philip Seymour) on matters of external affairs, supports Rhodellian nationals around the Wurld with many helpful services, and represents Rhodellia at the Entente of Oriental States (in which the nation has maintained 'Observer' status since 2017). Through the Bureau of Crown Affairs, the DOS also supports the King and the House of Rödel in their interactions with foreign dignitaries and other royalty and nobility. The DOS also oversees political parties within the Rhodellian Parliament that conduct their own international dealings independent of the government, such as the Rhodellian Socialist Party and The Communist Party of Rhodellia.
      A brief history of the Department of State
      Rhodellia has engaged in international relations since its origins in 1594, as the Empire of Dolchland's Aurelian colonies in the Gulf of Auriel, in and around Waldseemüller Bay. The governments of individual colonies conducted war, trade, and diplomacy with various Native Aurelian chiefdoms, kingdoms, and empires in and around the Waldseemüller Bay region. The Waldseemüller Bay colonies unified as the Rhodellian Commonwealth in 1643, and were granted increased rights and powers. Through the newly established Department of Foreign Affairs, the Commonwealth was permitted to maintain its own international relations with non-Native Aurelian countries in an official capacity, albeit with significant oversight and veto power from Dolchland's imperial government in Argis. In 1753, the Commonwealth voted to accept full independence from Dolchland and establish its own constitutional monarchy, transforming into the Kingdom of Rhodellia the next year in 1754. Rhodellia has since pursued its own foreign policy and its own international relations, on its own terms, via the newly established Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Shortly after the November Revolution of 1922, as part of the Günther administration's radical government reforms, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was renamed and reorganised into the modern-day Department of State.
      Foreign relations today 
      The Prime Minister, the House of Rödel, and the DOS continue to receive and communicate with foreign leaders, foreign dignitaries, and any other interested parties willing to engage with Rhodellia. 
      The DOS is headed by a Secretary of State, a Cabinet official who serves as Rhodellia's chief diplomat and representative abroad. The current Secretary of State is Kurt Ritter von Oberstein, who was nominated by Prime Minister Phil Seymour to succeed Takoda Wagner in January 2021. The department is headquartered in the Saint Dreyse Building at 1862 Rifle Street, Friedrichstadt.
      The official residence and executive office of the Prime Minister of Rhodellia is 7 Rommel Street, in Friedrichstadt.
      The House of Rödel operates and resides in many historic castles and forts across the country, but the monarch of Rhodellia's main residence and administrative headquarters is Gottesberg Citadel in 1 Headquarters Lane, within the Gottesberg star fortress complex, which is in turn located along Waldseemüller Avenue on the Gottesberg beachfront.
      Rhodellian foreign policy
      In condensed terms, the Kingdom of Rhodellia's foreign policy can basically be summarised as followed:
      Safeguarding Rhodellia, its citizens, and its allies. Fostering goodwill and cooperation between Rhodellia and other countries on Eurth through diplomatic, academic, and cultural exchanges; military cooperation; collaboration in joint projects; assistance with nation-building efforts; and humanitarian missions. Increasing Rhodellia's economic prosperity through negotiating mutually beneficial trade agreements with other countries, assuring continued access to international resources and markets, and promoting foreign investment in Rhodellia. Promoting and protecting freedom, liberty, democracy, and human rights across Aurelia and the rest of the Wurld. Contributing to wurldwide nuclear disarmament and the prevention of nuclear proliferation. Addresses

      5th December 2018 - 14 days before the fire.

      Musty carpets, musty walls, musty air, Xiying thought to himself as he budged his metal cart through the archaic and near-abandoned hallways of the South Palu Foreign Affairs Department. Outside thunder rumbled, rain pattering against the ruined rooftops above. The grim yellow lighting keeping the room in a perpetual sickly glow flickering every so often. The cart was filled with dusty books and piles of crumpled stained papers, the weight causing the cart's wheels to squeak. The beige walls were lined with towering rusting cabinets threatening fall and crash upon Xiying and the cart. Nevertheless he pushed forward. The halls felt endless, the only distinction between where he was going and where he came from were the occasional intersections of hallways, collapsed white wooden doors, and already torn down walls exposing the department's insides to the harsh tropical winds of the night. As far as he was aware there was only himself and three others shovelling the documents to the vans outside. Vans that would take them to new undisclosed locations. Where exactly he didn't know nor care to know, he wasn't being paid to be nosey, he was paid to move the documents, stay quiet, and not tell a soul about anything he's seen inside the rotting corpse of a building.

      Suddenly the cart lurched backwards, its front wheels hit against an unseen fallen cabinet. The sudden stop snapped Xiying back to reality, stepping around the cart to inspect the cabinet. It had fallen on its side, the drawers hung open with papers and small A6 diaries spilled out upon the damp carpet. Xiying grimaced before beginning to slowly lift the cabinet up from its end, bending his knees and using all of his strength to lift and push it back. Just as the cabinet thudding back upright one of the drawers slipped out completely and thudded against the floor causing hundreds of papers to scatter including several sealed mail.
      "Damnit.." He muttered, swiping several of the papers and mail and shoving them into his pockets to free up his hands, continuing do so for several minutes before he had collected them all, yanking them out of his front and back pockets and tossing them crumpled back into the cabinets. He had only been instructed to take documents from certain rooms, and not to deal with anything in the hallways or side rooms. Xiying dusted off his hands on his trousers and rubbed the dust off from his nose ending with a deep breath and a cough.
      Outside a car horn began to be played repeatedly. Xiying went back to the cart hastily and begun to quickly push it down the hallway.

      He'd made it to the exit of the building, the glass double doors already smashed and swung open. The department was surrounded by dense white-bark savanna trees, dry shrubs and bushes, and cracked orange dirt. The only light came from the building itself and the light from a distance rural village downhill, the campsites like fireflies. Xiying knew the difficulty the local government had to endure to gain the rights to recover lost data from the building, tribal monarchs rarely gave an inch unless the federal government got involved or there were enough bribes to buy a new fancy house. They had to drive the vans around the villages on what few dirt roads that existed, taking them the entire day from sunrise to sunset to get from Pomodoria City to the building. He was not looking forward to the back trip. Xiying exhaled, speeding up and began to run with the cart through the rain around the side of the building towards four white unmarked vans, and towards the only one without its headlights on. With haste he swung its back doors open and tipped the cart's contents into an already full back and slammed the van's backdoors shut. He made is way to the side and hopped into the front, where another man, burly and clearly of Lysian descent, was already starting up the engine, the headlights buzzing to life. No sooner had he jumped in did the van begin to move, the other three vehicles doing the same as they moved into a single file line, down the unmarked dirt roads. The occasional dip in the mud causing the whole van to jostle and turn causing Xiying's stomach to churn. He'd already became acquainted with the driver, Yaotel, a silent man who only wanted to do his job. Seeing as he wasn't going to get any small talk of the man Xiying drooped his head onto the window and slowly went to sleep.

      The sudden jostle of the vehicle woke Xiying from his sleep. The rattling noise of something loose within the van was only complimented by the continued rainfall, the rolling sludge of the mud beneath the wheels, and the faint echoes hidden within the savanna forests. Suddenly a walkie talkie next to the gear shift crackled to life, a lady speaking in an unrecognisable accent of Nawātl was being said was breathless and on high alert. The accent was too heavy for Xiying to understand, only hearing some lone words from Anglish such as 'banmāh' (vans), 'aleconiz' (electronics), and Yaotel's name. He'd turned his gaze briefly towards Yaotel, who leaned back in his chair, eyes dead set on the road. But before Xiying could turn back towards the window, the burly driver spoke up.
      "You were asleep for four hours. Sunrise is in an hour, we'll be stopping at a nearby village for rest in half an hour."
      Xiying's eyebrow rose. "I thought the contract stated we were not to dist-"
      "We'll be stopping at a nearby village for rest in half an hour." Yaotel cut him off, his tone of voice monotonous. Not once did Yaotel take his eyes off the road. Once it was clear to Xiying the conversation was over, he twisted himself to look out the door window towards the endless dense trees and the occasional landmark. The three other vans remained behind them, all four going at a snails pace to prevent slipping off the roads. The contract specifically stated to not disturb the local villages, the last thing the local tribal monarchs want are unmarked government vans parading themselves down their roads and disturbing the local balances of power casually buying out entire local hostels or purchasing the most expensive meals at the only restaurant in the village. Nevertheless Xiying could sympathise with the drivers, Yaotel himself with heavy bags under his eyes.
      "If they didn't want us to stay in a village, they'd have packed us with camping equipment." Xiying muttered to himself, crossing his arms. Yaotel in the back nodded and the van suddenly began to speed up. Distant twinkling of lights told him they were close. Xiying twisted his body, itchy from being in the same posture for hours on end, only to hear crumpling from his behind. He'd frown and shuffled forward, pulling out a crumpled unsealed letter from his back pocket. Yaotel's eyes finally dislodged themselves from the road, a frown creasing across his face. "You took a document from the department?"
      "Hm, oh-" Xiying glanced at the partly folded letter, a broken red wax seal partly crumbled to dust and smeared on the envelope and most definitely on his trousers.
      "-no. I must've forgotten I put it there. It's from the hallways so, nothing that could get us in trouble. I think." Xiying remarked, his voice tense. Yaotel's eyes turned back to the road.
      "They're planning to burn the building down in a fortnight. I'd reckon it's important enough to be burned. What's inside?" Yaotel said, causing Xiying to squirm in his seat. He'd pull back the letter's envelope to pull out an ancient piece of paper. Scrawled across the paper were old Crescent Empire syllabic script and, surprisingly, old Esonyan script. It's distinct style even noticeable to a common man like Xiying.
      "It's... Something. Esonyan and the Crescent Empire? How old is this document.." Xinying muttered in confusion, squinting his eyes and pursing his lips. At the bottom were two black lines, on the first was more Esonyan text, but the other black line was empty. Xinying pushed the paper back into the envelope and examined its back, revealing the date and context.

      "1563, Chocolate Wars Treaty.." Xinying read out, causing Yaotel's eyebrows to raise higher than before.
      "1563? That's bloody old. Don't know what the Chocolate Wars are though." He responded, the burly man quickly flicking his eyes from the road to the letter then back. The village lights now brighter with the individual shanty homes of the rural village now visible, light from the sun peeping out from behind the horizon.
      "Chocolate Wars. Chocolate Wars." Xinying repeated in a loud whisper, looking up with eyes tightly closed. "Can't think of anything."
      "We can always check when we finally arrive back in Pomodoria City." Yaotel said, slowing down the van.
      "Sound's dumb." He'd remark with a scoff, still holding the envelope, finally looking up to see the village ahead.
