Foreign Minister Bernard Filmore of the Commonwealth of Rutania speaking to Foreign Minister Stella Felgenhauer of the Federal Republic of Dorvik:

Foreign Minister Felgenhauer, I am delighted to hear that Dorvik also favors the provisions suggested by Kazulia. Being that Rutania and Dorvik share a continent perhaps our two nations should form a multi-national brigade? Together our nations should be able to make a significant naval contribution to the alliance, if Dundorf were to be in favor of cooperating in this fashion as well then our combined multi-national brigade would be one that would be respected across the entire continent and would greatly benefit all of our interest.

Also, would the Kazulian delegation be in favor of drafting a treaty to formalize the provisions they have suggested? I would also like to see the alliance tackle joint intelligence as well, such as a joint intelligence service.

Sebastian Hemmingsen, State Secretary for Defence (Federal Department of Defence - Kazulia)
As it stands the aforementioned proposals do not need to be included in the existing treaty as what was proposed is simply reinforcement for the provisions outlined in the Northern Council treaty. The aforementioned proposals are aimed to ensure members uphold the provisions of the treaty. Thus, a treaty on the proposals would be unnecessary. As it stands, the most important issue in the implementation of the proposals.

NC authorises airstrikes in Bianjie

11th June, 4381.

The Northern Council authorised precision air strikes against Bianjie as Secretary-General Haakon Egeland declared that force was necessary to halt aggression against the nation's Indralan minority. The campaign, to be commanded by the Lourennais Armed Forces and comprising of Hutorian, Lourennais, Luthorian and Dorvish aircraft is set to commence over the nation's northern, eastern and southern borders under the cover of night. The campaign, coined Operation October Freedom, comes more than a year after the conflict began and more than 4 months since the Northern Council initially threatened to use military force. According to Admiral Erling Halvorsen, Chief of Staff of the Joint Headquarters, explained that the Northern Council's decision to launch the air campaign against all warring factions in Bianjie comes as the organisation aims to force all parties towards either a World Congress-organised or Northern Council-organised peace process. The Admiral stated that the individuals responsible for the genocide of Bianjie's Indralan minority would be held accountable and will not see the light of mercy from the Northern Council, citing the fact that the organisation stands to defend the interests of global security.

The authorisation of the airstrikes occurred at the Northern Council headquarters in Bekenial, where Secretary-General Haakon Egeland. Lt. General Sebastian Hemmingsen, Representative for Kazulia to the Northern Council Defence Council stated that the Federal Republic would not be devoting aircraft to the operation, citing the need for Northern Council members to be involved in the organisation and commanding of operations launched by the alliance. Joint Logistics and Supply Department has stated that the base of operations for Operation October Freedom would be Elle-Sutherland Air Base in eastern Dreton. Lt. General Hemmingsen stated that although the operation will be under the command of the Lourennais Armed Forces and will run in accordance with Lourennais systems, the Joint Headquarters will be watching closely with the Kazulian Armed Forces acting as "supervisors" and in some cases forward air control for coalition aircraft.

There has been sentiments and calls for a peacekeeping mission to be launched instead of airstrikes as individuals cite the possibility of civilian causalities involved in airstrikes. A peacekeeping mission, as proposed by the Agatha Institute for Peace, would involve a transnational task force aimed at "nation-building". Admiral Halvorsen responded to the proposal saying that peacekeeping missions would be impossible due to the warring factions. He cited the inability for "peace to be kept" when there exists a warring factions with no intention coming to a discussion on a peace process. He also commented on the fact that peacekeeping missions, do not deter civilian causalities.

KEDA nations join NC as organisations merge to amid challenges

11th April, 4382

Aircraft attached to the Northern Defence Integrated Command (NORDIC) began patrolling the aerospace of Keri Defensive Alliance members earlier this morning after Secretary-General Haakon Egeland announced the accession of the nations of New Endralon/Kizenia, Egelion and Trigunia to the ranks of the Northern Council. In a clear victory for Secretary-General Egeland's diplomatic efforts, he has reiterated that the Northern Council was open to nations willing to make a positive change in the northern hemisphere and the wider world as a whole. The decision to begin aerospace monitoring throughout the nations had been fully explained by Admiral Halvorsen to the in-coming New Endralonian, Egelian and possibly Trigunian military commanders as they become familiar with the various systems of the organisation. According Secretary-General Egeland, invitations were sent to the governments of New Endralon, Egelion and Trigunia pertaining to the nation's accession into the Northern Council as it became clear to Egeland that the Kerisian Defencive Alliance had been plagued with inactivity politically and military which creates a void in the regions of Keris and Macon. Months ago, Secretary-General Egeland and Admiral Halvorsen met with Commanders of KEDA last month after calls had been made for the Northern Council to "devour" the Kerisian alliance.

Although the KEDA nations are in the transition phase, Secretary-General Egeland has stated that Trigunia has the option to remain out of the organisation where it so pleases. The statement comes as political analysts and foreign policy journalists have highlighted the fact that Kazulian-Trigunian diplomatic relations have not been friendly various centuries as the two nations share extremely different policies on various key issues. The point of conflict comes in the form of both nation's arctic ambitions, on one side, Trigunia has expressed its intentions of obtaining legal rights to the island of Arenheim, the disputed island which Kazulia claims to be its sovereign territory. Decades prior, Kazulia began militarising the island and hosting various multinational and national cold weather exercises on the island in an attempt to solidify its claim of the island. Secretary-General Egeland stated that negotiations will be launched between the Kazulian government and the Trigunian government to bring the situation to an end, however, he left the option open for Trigunia to remain out of the organisation.
More than one hundred years ago, the Northern Council was formed with the paramount intention of promoting transnational security, cooperation and friendliness in the Northern Hemisphere. Today, the Northern Council stands as the principle example of collectivism as the various nations that make up this organisation work towards the organisation's common goal. We welcome New Endralon and Kizenia, Egelion and Trigunia(?), nations steadfast on the principle of collectivism. As the sunsets on the Kersian Defencive Alliance, its rises on a closer Northern Council.


New Endralon and Egelion have entered negotiations pertaining to military and economic requirement associated with their membership, with Trigunia's negotiation phase being placed on a hold. These requirements include membership costs at $25 million LOD biannually, each nation's commitment to contributing to the various subordinate organisations within the Northern Council including NORDIC and the Joint Headquarters. As per recently introduced provisions, members must contribute 3% of their nation's GDP to defence and orient their national armed forces to the standards of the Northern Council (that being they must uphold the principles of professionalism and doctrinal obedience). Accommodations are to be made for the nations to benefit from the organisation's systems, including the Global Aerospace Monitoring Systems (GAMS) which is to be modernised and enlarged for southern hemispheric operations in the future. Once the transition phase has been complete, New Endralon and Egelion are set to join the NC-led coalition in Bianjie under the Lourennais-led bombing campaign. Chief of Staff of the Joint Headquarters, Admiral Erling Halvorsen has stated that the once it is clear to the Defence Council that New Endralon is capable of commanding a large-scale multinational operation, the nation will be given command of the upcoming Northern Council Mission in Bianjie, the organisation's peacekeeping mission in Bianjie. As the organisation expands, negotiations are on-going for Trigunia's situation and the inclusion of other members.
