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

Lourennais, Luthorian, Hutorian and Dorvish combat aircraft in Elle-Sutherland Air Base.
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
Image
New Endralonian, Egelionian and Trigunian diplomats in Bekenial, Hutori following their respective nation's accession to the Northern Council.
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.

NC mulls combined intervention into Saridan
Image
Secretary-General of the Northern Council, Haakon Egeland speaking before the Northern Council Defence Council.
11th March, 4389.

With a deteriorating situation in Southern Seleya whereby the nation of Saridan continues its prosecution of its minority ethnic groups attention has been garnered through the intervention of nations with as Hawu Mumenhes and Istalia, and much more with the Northern Council's potential intervention into the situation. Earlier this morning on the background of the deteriorating situation, Secretary-General Haakon Egeland stated that the alliance was in deep contemplation on its involvement/role in the situation. Recent diplomatic engagements between the Istalian Republic and Saridan had brought a potential diplomatic "solution" to the issue to fruition. According to reports from Istalian media outlets, an agreement had been struck between Istalian President Antonio Massa and Saridani President Curtis Spencer that mandated the withdrawal of Istalian combatant vessels previously deployed to the region in exchange for the release of 8 million persons of Iftgoeroon and Ikpi decent as well as individuals who openly identify as homosexual. According to Istalian media, the agreement came at the cost of the Istalian republic as the nation quasi-bought the aforementioned 8 million persons from the Saridan government at a cost of 300 billion Lira.

Already international condemnation has risen from the Istalian Republic's decision to kowtow to the government in Koeistad, with the Free Kingdom of Hawu Mumenhes lambasting the agreement as being "marked by the expediency, cowardice, and mental impoverishment of its negotiators." In response to the withdrawal of Istalian combatant forces from the region, Hawu Mumenhes ordered the deployment of two expeditionary fleets to the region to block the Istalian naval contingent from withdrawing, thus halting the exchange of the 8 million persons under the aforementioned agreement. With the situation deteriorating to unimaginable proportions, the Northern Council has begun considering its intervention into the situation. Secretary-General Haakon Egeland said the following:
The Northern Council is deeply concerned about reports of violence, civil unrest and the strengthening of the apartheid regime in Koeistad. The actions of the government in Koeistad is contrary to its aforementioned desire for peace and prosperity within the nation and the wider region and it would send a troubling message if the government in Koeistad were to continue on its current path of apartheid-driven policies. These developments would only draw condemnation from the wider international community and the subsequent involvement of the Northern Council into the situation.


Egeland refused to comment on the decision-made by the Istalian government, however Kazulian Permanent Representative to the Northern Council, Bengt Prestegard stated that Skalm voiced great disappointment in the Istalian government's decision, with Skalm pressing the sentiment that the Istalian republic is contradicting its democratic developments and kowtowing to the demands of apartheid-regimes. As the Northern Council considers its intervention into the situation behind closed door, it has been reported that the KNS-Oliver Fiske signals intelligence vessels had been deployed to the Sea of Lost Souls as a means on monitoring the situation.

Northern Council nations begin largest exercise since alliance's formation
Image

1st December, 4389.

Earlier this morning on the background of mounting international tensions, the Northern Council launched its first large-scale exercise involving all members of the alliance, in what has been dubbed the largest exercise to have taken place in the eastern hemisphere. The 14 day exercise coined Exercise Titanaboa 4390, encompassing of around 45,000 troops and thousands of associated military hardware from 10 nations, had been launched as the Northern Council and its partners strives to increasing cohesion, interoperability and mount a response to Dankukin military implications within the region. According to information released by the Northern Council Press/Media Office, the exercise's paramount purpose is to test the degree of cooperation and cohesion between troops and commanders from the various participating nations in responding to instances might it be on a small or large scale and also to test their reaction in responding to various scenarios pertaining to the various regions each nation hails from in-order to shape other members into being able to adapt and operate effectively when the time comes for their intervention/involvement into various international concerns.

The exercise is being coordinated by the Commandant Louis Verignon of the Lourennais Air Component. The Joint Headquarters of the Northern Council has stressed the importance for more multinational programmes, citing the fact that increased interoperability within the Northern Council would enhance the alliance's ability to respond to threats against its members and instance against established peace and security internationally. Currently, a multinational corps is being formed between the Artanian members of the Northern Council with the 1st Joint Arctic Response Brigade (1st Hutorian-Kazulian Brigade) set to expand in the coming months. Components of Titanaboa 4390 include live-fire exercises, mountain and urban warfare infantry manoeuvres, aerial reconnaissance, surface and submarine warfare manoeuvres. Admiral Erling Halvorsen stated that Titanaboa 4390 would see the application of the "Cold Resolve" doctrine, a military doctrine crafted personally for the Northern Council by the commanders of the northern council armies. According to Admiral Halvorsen the doctrine stresses close coordination between land forces acting as an aggressively manoeuvring defence/offence, and air forces attacking rear-echelon forces feeding those front line enemy forces, with coordinated strike assistance from naval forces positioned within strike distance of a given position/target.

General Christopher Tollefsrud stated that Exercise Titanaboa would be an opportunity for the various Northern Council nations to "show-off" their military hardware and their skills training. General Tollefsrud stated that the Kazulian Navy was eager to show off its modernised fleets to the various Northern Council members. General Tollefsrud stated that the Northern Council had great intentions where it pertained to mutual defence and security with respect to its members. "The exercise would allow the Northern Council to demonstrate its readiness, flexibility and capability to respond to threats from a range of areas.
