Moskovo, United Kingdom of Ahrana

Federal Chancellery Building, 0600AST

 

It had been some time since any Ahranaian Politician had left the Country for a Diplomatic Meeting with a foreign nation, it is also the first for this Ahranaian Government to be meeting on foreign soil with a Foreign Government. In the latest Government Communication with the Government of @DPR Velaheria the Chancellor set out her own objectives she wished to discuss with the leader of Velaheria, she also made it clear that so as long as human rights abuses happened in Velaheria not formal reignition between the two states would or could occur.

The Chancellor had cleared her schedule for the next few days in order to make time for these discussions in Velaheria which have been in the works for some time now both behind the scenes and on the books. With the rising issues of Civil War in Central Argis and with the Government of Velaheria placing itself in the middle of these conflicts the Ahranaian Government decided talks were a must instead of ignoring one another. No sitting government leader has met with the Leader of Velaheria or any other Government official, she would be the first and most likely the only one to do so as most consider this meeting a horrible idea. As Bjorkman walked in her office gathering a few things and getting her briefcases ready for the trip, she had to make one stop by the Imperial Palace to see the Diarchs before she left to ensure they have gathered everything they wished for the Chancellor to talk on their behalf. Originally, the Diarchs were going to travel to Velaheria but with the history of the sitting Monarch of Ahrana always ending up dead when flying close to hostile airspace the government deemed the risk to high and decided the Chancellor should attend in their place.

As she finished gathering several things, she walked over to the Royal Blue Government Box set a few papers in the box for the State Councilor to look at while the Chancellor was gone. While this trip and meeting is going on the State Councilor would for the first time be in control of the Government till the Chancellor returns. Naturally the Chancellor will have a direct line back to Moskovo for daily debriefings from the State Councilor and to the Government, her entire attention will be given to these meetings. She pressed the buzzer on her desk that rang a bell in the main chamber of the Chancellery and a secretary came and retrieved the box and took it to the State Councilors Office. On occasions the Chancellor has traveled with the Government Box but due to going into unfriendly territory she decided not to do that this time. As she looked around and made sure she got everything she went to her personal quarters located in the west wing of the building where her family lived with her. She walked into the apartment, and no one was home, husband at work and the children were at school already. She walked into her room and began packing some clothing for her to wear for the duration of the meeting, she was going to keep it business causal after the first day. Today however, since she was inspecting a regiment on behalf of the Diarchs before leaving for Velaheria. 

As she walked over to the other closet where her uniforms were located, she grabbed the Lifeguards Regimental colors to wear. She was to be inspecting the 3rd Regimental Guards today so therefore she got the uniform and laid it down to change into. As she grabbed the trousers and the button-down shirt, she walked over to a dark colored box that she kept all her ribbons, medals, and orders in for safe keeping. She got them out and laid them out on the bed as well. As she tucked her shirt in, she got her Ribbon Rack and placed the largest one on the right and the smaller one on the left along with the other awards. She then got the Military Blazor and placed it on and buttoned it up and did the same thing as well, but this time the ribbon racks would follow the pattern as before, but the Orders would be placed below it with the senior ribbon sash going over the entire blazer. She then grabbed her saber placed it on and then grabbed her cover and made her way to the central section of the building to ask the personal secretary to gather the cases in the office and apartment and placed them in the car that will head to the airport.

As she walked to the front entrance the car to take her to the palace came round and parked and was waiting for her to come outside. As she walked outside, she placed on her cover and got into the car. As the car drove down the road, she looked at the time and noticed it was already 0700AST. She did not think it was already that time. As the driver drove down the main street heading to the Imperial Palace, she got ready to get out of the car for the inspection. As they topped the hill the Imperial Gates were in sight, and they opened to allow the car in. The car pulled up to where the Regimental Leader was waiting and opened her door when it stopped. She stepped out and saluted the captain and he motioned her to follow him, and he drew his saber out as well and they walked down the columns of troops. As she walked each soldier stood straight and firm in place as the inspection went on. There was a small crowed at the side of the gates like usual, nothing out of the normal. Once she finished the band played the march of the Regimental Colours which were brought front and center to which she saluted and kissed the flag before it returned to formation. 

As the soldiers went back into the barracks except for those on duty watch, she walked over to the captain shook his hand and then made her way into the palace. The Diarchs were watching the Inspection like always and were waiting for Bjorkman in the main reception room which oversees the courtyard where the inspection took place. As Bjorkman walked to the door, she made a light knock and waited five seconds before walking into the room. As she walked in, she bowed and walked forward and sat down after the Diarchs sat down. They would talk about the families for a bit before Bjorkman had to leave which was around 0800AST.

As time went on it was due time to make her way to the airport and board her flight to Velaheria, she bid the Diarchs farewell and gave a bow as she was leaving and then made her way to the car which was waiting for her. She stepped outside placed her cover on and got into the car and the door shut behind her. As the car pulled out the Imperial Gates the Guardsmen posted at the gate a salute to which she gave a nod. Now on the road to the Airport which was about a five-minute drive total. As the car went around the City Centre and then out towards where the old city gates were in the olden times. As the car approached the airport you could see more police presence due to her plane departure. The car then drove through a series of gates with Policemen posted at each gate holding them open and closed them as the car went through. Soon the plane was in sight and the press was there as usual. She would get out give a few waves and handshakes and get on the plane and depart. As the car stopped and her door was opened, she got out placed the cover on and walked towards a few people standing and shook their hands, then she turned and stood for the press to get some pictures and then walked towards the steps to get on the plane. They were taking the medium sized Government plane that would carry a smaller personal staff than the typical trip. As she got onto the plane she turned around and gave another wave before turning where they could not see her. 

She took the cover off and headed towards her office on the plane, as she got into the office she sat down in the chair and let out a sigh of relief to be done with that phase at least. It would take them at least ten minutes before they could take off from the airport. As they sat there waiting, she took off the blazer and was left wearing the everyday dress wear. She also took off the saber and put it in the corner where the table was. She came out of the office and headed to the cabin area to prepare for take-off. As she sat down so did the other staff members. Then the pilot asked for permission to leave to which the chancellor gave the okay and then the Flight Tower was contacted for takeoff. Soon the plane engines could be heard roaring at full throttle and the plane was hurdling down the runway and then you heard no form of movement and then they were in the air. It was going to be a few hours till they would arrive in Velaheria airspace to which she wanted to be present for that period of time. In the meantime, she retired back to her office and did some paperwork and legislation that she had been working on the day prior.

Somewhere over Velaheria

Several hours later she was told they were over Velaherian Airspace and had made contact with the Air control Authority over the airspace. It would be a few more hours before they were in Bastaria. So far, she had been shocked to see the landscape of Velaheria, in ways it reminded her of Dolchland which was a horrible mess in some area. She could see some of the farming projects and other things like that, but soon the airplane was climbing again after getting clearance to climb to a higher altitude out of local radar. 

Soon though, the plane descended again for the last time which was making its way to land at the airport. What was waiting for the chancellor was unknown, deep down she really didn't trust landing in a Socialist nation due to the distrust of Socialists through her personal experiences, but she set that aside. Soon the runway was in sight, and she sat down for the landing. It was a clean landing, nothing out of the ordinary for these pilots who fly her and the Imperial Family around the Realm. The plane pulled up to a terminal and the door was opened. She grabbed her cover and her working briefcase and headed out the door placing the cover on her head. As she walked out, she could see some security along the walls and the area where she would be heading to. She was told the meeting would start at the Executive Building and that transportation has been arranged for her. She made her way to the car and got in and just like that she was on her way to have her meetings.

Bastaria, Velaheria

It was no news that the chancellor was coming to meet with the chairman himself, as it had been decided quite some time ago, but what was suprising however, was the preparations that were made for the arrival of her excellency, in the velaherian capital, the city itself was bustling with, the other major metropolitan areas being similar as well, but on that day, there werent many people to be seen, besides the Peasant's guards and the VPA personnel, who guarded the key roads of the capital for her excellency's arrival. Velaheria according to some, had already surpassed dolchland in terms of growth, so it was not uncommon to see some people running here and there, or some shops being set up, besides the private malls that were also, filled with people, but those were far from the main route from which the chancellor would arrive, the roads were barricaded, and the usual party propaganda was seen on the walls of the relatively velaherian styled buildings, which was common the capital, huge monuments dedicated to the velaherian socialist ideology, and to socialist reality could be seen from a distance. There were also two cars which had went to the Bastarian airport, to pick up, the chancellor, and show her around the capital, before arriving at the People's assembly. 

As the cars arrived at the airport, Her excellency, was instructed to follow the cars to, the velaherian people's assembly, where the meeting would take place in, and where she would talk directly with the chairman and the general secretary of the velaherian people's party about the issues in central argis. The cars were painted the usual black, which seemed all the more similar to the attire of the velaherian security services, which was a branch of the velaherian ministry of security and enforcement. The cars had the logo of the Velaherian Ministry of Security, and of the VPA, and toured the car of the chancellor, all around the city, showing them key sites such as the Supreme court, the statues of the father of the state "Arin Von Starinburg", The Art and Cultural meuseum, and the Velaherian war memorial, all of which were symbols of pride and honour to the regime and the people as well.

After some time, they finally arrive at the people's assembly, where armed soldiers were waiting for the chancellor, and she was followed inside the building by atleast a platoon of soldiers, all of whom were armed with K-24 assault rifles, as she is finally shown the room, where the conference is to be held, with the chairman, who according to the captain of the platoon, has been waiting for her for atleast an hour now, as he had also been doing his usual work, of checking through proposals and legislations, though some of them, were of concerns to the velaherian economy, and the interaction of it with the argic markets. The velaherians had been developing key ties with the rest of the continent through the argic rails and they have been a main source of exports for the state, but current situations had made that route a bit unstable, thus, the regime needed to protect its interests in central argis as well, and thus supporting dokvetska was a key factor in that. 

Ander von starinburg, had heard a lot about the ahranan leadership and their distrust of the velaherian regime, for a long time, and thus he had decided to hold this meeting in his nation, instead of travelling there, as then he could show the ahranans that the velaheria that they perceived was not the same, and that the economy had grown a lot since the 2000's, and that the velaherian markets were as stable as any other state, if not more, and thus they shouldnt be distrustful of them anymore..and if it required some tour to convince them that, then he had a whole schedule planned for the chancellor, that she could visit, though it was mostly a small bribe from the socialist state, to get things done its way.

On the way to the People's Assembly, she was given a tour of the Capital City, in her mind this was the last thing she wanted to do or even entertain. Nonetheless, she was guest to this nation and therefore she and to play whatever game it was they were playing at. As they drove around parts of the city did mine her of Dolchland in some ways, mostly the architecture was very similar. The number of statutes though that were found to be all over the city and almost every other block was a bit similar to Moskovo before the Revolution, "so that was one similarity to Ahranaian Society and a dozen to the Dolch" she said to herself in her mind giving a bit a laugh.

As the car drove around and around, soon she found herself at the People's Assembly finally. As the car stopped the door was opened and there was a line of guards up the stairs and into the building. She grabbed her briefcase and placed her cover on and made her way into the building. As she walked in, she took off her cover and followed a guard.

As the Chancellor was shown to the room where the conference was to be held, she noticed that Von Starinburg had been waiting in the room and seemed to be looking at papers of some sort. She made no notion of that but instead walked into the room and made her way over to where he was. They shook hands and Bjorkman look around to see if there was anyone else in the room to which there was not.

"I do not wish to sound rude but is it just you and me in this room where I suppose we are to discuss some stately matters? If that sounded a bit rude, I do apologize in advance it's just a bit unorthodox I guess you could say from what I have experience in other visits."
