The West Pacific Treaty of Friendship, Goodwill, Cultural Exchange, Respect, Security and Military Cooperation with Equilism

 

The West Pacific-Equilism Treaty
 
The West Pacific and Equilism hereby enter into a mutually beneficial Treaty of Friendship, Goodwill, Cultural Exchange, Respect, Security and Military Cooperation. The signatory regions seek to encourage inter-regional cooperation in all areas of mutual interest. Both regions remain sovereign, as do each region's nations.

  • This Treaty is an exclusive agreement between The West Pacific and Equilism and does not affect any current and/or future alliances or treaties. This Treaty is not subject to the approval or disapproval of any other parties.
  • Each region will maintain an Embassy in the region of the other to further communication between the signatories. Embassies and Ambassadors will respect the laws of foreign soil.
  • The members of each region are invited to participate in the cultural events of the other. The signatories are also encouraged to hold inter-regional cultural events. Such events may be opened to participation by non-signatories.
  • The signatories are encouraged to share information of vital need to each other. All care shall be taken to preserve the integrity of information sources. Such exchanges will be limited to the signatories only, and not to any third party. Information sharing may only be initiated by the TWP Delegate, The Equilism Founder, or their designated regional representatives.
  • The signatories commit themselves to the principle of mutual defense and military cooperation. The military of each signatory is encouraged to work with the other whenever possible. Co-operative military training programs and exercises are encouraged, and may be proposed by either party. Each signatory recognizes the right of the other to refrain from participation in actions that would violate their sovereignty.
  • Should a misunderstanding arise at any time as to the interpretation of this document the matter shall be resolved between the appropriate officials of each region. Appropriate officials shall be understood to be The TWP Delegate, the Equilism Founder and/or their officially designated representatives.
  • While respecting the right to recruit nations under NationStates rules and understanding the necessities for growth and renewal of regions, neither TWP nor Equilism will deliberately engage in mass untargeted recruitment from the other, nor from one another’s protectorates which have been established by each region and communicated to the other signatory.[/background]
  • “Mass Recruitment” is defined as the sending of untargeted telegrams on the NationStates site to encourage nations to move regions. This shall not be interpreted to prohibit recruitment, or specific recruitment methods, but rather to respect long-term resident nations and regional policies.[/background]
  • Sending telegrams to "New" nations will not be considered untargeted recruitment for the purposes of this section.
  • Each region confirms that they will not engage in the subversion of the legally recognized government of each respective region.
  • Each region reserves the right to refuse to assist in the other region's endeavors.
  • Each region reserves the right to cancel this Treaty by public announcement and official notification.
  • This Treaty will remain in effect for a period of one year. At the conclusion of this period, the signatories may approve an extension, renegotiate the terms of the treaty, or allow it to lapse.

This was ratified during the Punk Reloaded Delegacy. It was re-confirmed after the NS Republic was established. Equilism's Chief Minister and Delegate Zeorus recently re-confirmed it as well. I am proceeding under the assumption that we're maintaining our existing agreements until someone says otherwise.

When was this last approved? The date on the post is 18th of November 2012. If the last update was then, it'll be a year in 4 days(and therefore it'll need to be extended). Though for the record, when you renegotiate, you really oughta take the year long thing out. Since either side can just drop it at any time, the year long time limit serves little purpose(other than additional bureaucratic headaches). Perhaps replace it with something along the lines of:

 

"Each region reserves the right to organize a diplomatic summit between the two regions for the purpose of renegotiating this treaty, or to resolve differences on topics outside the scope of this treaty,".

 

Something like that anyway.

There is a thread in the Concillium, we reviewed and renewed the Treaty in April 2013, and Equilism reveiewed and renewed it in June 2013.  So we've got awhile before it's time to take another look at it.  I certainly wouldn't object to proposing that change when it comes up again.

The West Pacific Holy Ministry for Foreign Affairs has successfully negotiated an amended renewal of the The West Pacific/Equilism Treaty.  The Amendments pertain to mass telegram recruitment, to protect both regions while recognizing the needs and rights of both.  The first post has been updated to reflect the amended treaty.

 

The treaty will be due for renewal again by both regions in one year.

Does the military consideration cited in the first quoted section above extend to our protectorates or are they only covered for recruitment purposes as mention in the second section?

Hail The West Pacific!

Westwind shall now be serving as your Ambassador from Equilism.

While Equilism has been very quiet in recent years, we're not quite dead yet. I was unable to post this message in our Embassy, as it has been locked due to our inactivity. So I would like to request that our Embassy be unlocked, so that we may continue in compliance with our mutual treaty:

Quote

Each region will maintain an Embassy in the region of the other to further communication between the signatories.

We have appreciated The West Pacific's dedication in continuing to provide updates in your Embassy in Equilism through our periods of inactivity. Thank you!
