Kalistani Foreign Minister flies to Vanuku

Foreign Minister Orenthal Williams heads to high level talks in Vanuku. Williams will be the first Kalistani official to visit Vanuku since the events of 3925

Foreign Minister Williams departed Kalistan for Weil, Wrnukaék Konzknstat (known in Kalistan as Vanuku) this morning on a high level diplomatic mission. The mission follows on the heels of the Vanukese overture around purchasing stock in KALNAPECO and KALNAFERCO, and welcoming words from Count Brnó Sigzmasrmko Zhtál, Leader of the Zhtál-Merlkai Jezhrjekai Prta in the Vanukese Press. Williams brings an authorization from the Kalistani Government to negotiate an official endof the crisis began in 3925, when the Kalistani Presidential Jet was shot down, killing President of the Republic Elga Bjorksdattir, Foreign Minister Eduardo Gallegos, and 52 Kalistani service members accompanying the President on a visit to Trigunia. A full report of the destruction demonstrated Vanukese responsibility for the assassination, and the Vanukean Government has never apologized for or admitted its role in the assassination. This refusal has led to cold and distant relations between the two countries for 500 years.

"We agree with Comrade Zhtál in this matter. It is time to finally bury the machete that stands between our two countries and move on," Williams said in a short statement before bording the plane. "We fly to Vanuku today to settle that matter once and for all. I also carry a bank draft in my hand today worth 500 Billion Rubles. With the help of Kalistani military attaches who fly with me, we will see what sort of down payments we can make on military hardware, in line with our nation's strategic deployment plan. Mobility is our mantra, and if Vanuku is selling, we are certainly in the market."

With that, Williams boarded the government-leased corporate jet which will serve as his office for the next two days as he makes his way to Vanuku, with refueling stops in Aldegar and Selucia. This trip signifies William's first mission abroad since taking office two years ago. He flies with a small staff of aides, as well as representatives from Kalistan's Regular Standing Force and the RSMoK. He also travels with the Deputy Finance Minister for International Investment and her staff, who will be on the look out for investment opportunities in Vanuku.

Lourenne's Unprovoked Attack
Six Militia Light Armored Attack Craft feared destroyed on the High Seas

Dahriel, Ananto District

A Kalistani LAFA ship under the command of Gunnery Sergeant Mica Argos is utterly destroyed by Lourennese Naval Gunfire. All hands aboard were believed dead.

Lourenne has finally crossed the line. Sitting a vessel of war just off the coast of Ananto, firmly within Kalistani Waters, was provocation enough. As patrol vehicles approached the missile Frigate, the Lourennese Navy opened fire, destroying the Kalistani patrol boats. At this point there are no known survivors of the wanton attacks on Kalistani militia, but the conflict with Lourenne has taken another step towards war.

Rear Admiral Gina Antonia of the Kalistan Regular Navy gave the following statement: "Six LAFA Patrol craft were destroyed in this skirmish with the Lourenne Navy. We have no word on survivors, but we are sure that at least 30 members of the Militia have perished in the battle. In addition, a Lourenne Naval Frigate, a gun frigate known as the Orayee, have been destroyed by Militia activity. We also have no information on casualties on the other side, but the ship itself was critically wounded before breaking up and slipping beneath the waves. In response to this incursion, The Government of Kalistan has issued an immediate embargo on all Lourennese goods, shipping and transit in and around Kalistan, and all Lourennese shipping is to be attacked when it is discovered in Kalistani National Waters."

LAFA fleets in the Ananto Straits have increased to 96 and retaliation is expected.

Foreign Minister Williams reports "Progress" in negotiating with Vanuku
"Many major hurdles crossed", said FM

Foreign Minister Williams passes by reporters as he returns to talks with the Vanukese Government

The Kalistani Foreign Minister reported progress in Vanukese Talks during a prepared statement yesterday from the Vanukese capital. The Minister has been very busy discussing matters with the Vanuku Government, and outlined the talks so far in the statement. Below are the Minister's remarks:

Orenthal Williams wrote:"High level representatives of the Vanukese Government and my staff have met several times over the last week to talk about a number of issues. First of all, we are grateful to our Vanukese hosts for their astounding displays of hardware and power, as well as their truly appreciated efforts to make me and my staff feel at home and attended to. As you can imagine, there are some differences between Kalistan and Vanuku, and this place is quite foreign to what we are normally accustomed to. But Vanuku has taken every effort to ensure that we are comfortable and feel at home, as much as possible. And their country is quite impressive: the mix between ultra modern and traditional is truly deftly handled. We thank you Vanuku for your hospitality and your grace upon our arrival and since.

"Our discussions have been very productive and we have crossed many major hurdles. The first thing we talked about was the matter of the assassination of the Kalistani President and Foreign minister, Comrades Bjorksdottir and Gallegos, about 400 some years ago. It was imperative to both sides that this matter be resolved permanently and for all time. The tentative agreement was that the Final Report of the matter conducted by the Kalistani Government be accepted by both sides, and that the Vanukese Government proper is specifically not held liable for the actions of one of its citizens. The time for any sort of indemnity has passed, and both governments shall consider the matter resolved to the satisfaction of all. We shall let the dead lie.

"Given the duration of our negotiations, the Government of Kalistan has advanced our delegation an additional draft worth 500 billion KRB to serve us as we purchase weapons. The final 500 KRB, which remains in Kalistan is to be used if and when we conclude a deal on armaments. We have quite literally 1 trillion rubles, on hand here in Weil to spend on weapons with another 500 Billion in Kaliburg. We have informed the Government of Vanuku of Kalistan's needs and are awaiting some decision in just how much the Vanukese Government can and desires to sell us.

"Our needs are primarily for a relatively strong navy. I hear word from Ananto that Lourenne is blowing Kalistani vessels out of the water. Which makes purchase and delivery even more imperative. Kalistan needs modern destroyers, cruisers, and Frigates, with all complimentary support ships. We also need submarines. We are focusing on diesel powered vessels, as nuclear power is both hard to come by, as well as expensive for Kalistan. In the air, we need close support fighters, Interceptors, attack fighters, and helicopters, both for battle and transport. We need tanks and APCs for land combat. And we need advisors.

"Kalistan is ready to deal, and we have every indication that Vanuku is too. We are just concerned about whether or not whatever we purchase will arrive in Kalistan in time to turn the tide of the war that Lourenne has brought to our shores. We appreciate your patience as we work out a deal which satisfies all parties."


With that and without further comment, the Foreign Minister returned to his meeting with officials from Vanuku.

Technology Investigations
"Investigations will be beneficial to education in Kalistan"

Since our nomination to the science and technology office, we, the LWPoK, have done investigations to find new ways to advance our technology here in Kalistan.

So far we have investigated to the point where we now have blueprints needed to build futuristic technology which can help in government investigations, military ops and education.

Right now we have a blueprint for education that can be worn on the head to project curriculum in a way that young students will understand. We cannot provide the blueprints now, but sometime soon we will have a prototype for trying.

If this technology device design works how we hope it will, it will be beneficial to education everywhere in Kalistan.

Kalistan and Vanuku Close to etching deal
Cost of procurement "less than 10% of alloted amount" says Foreign Minister

Weil, Vanuku
April 7, 4409


With the release of the full Kalistan File from the Vanukese Government putting the final punctuation onto the age old feud, The Kalistani Foreign Minister announced that a potential arms sale will be moving through that will dramatically alter the character of the Kalistani Military.

A short statement from the Foreign Minister announced: "We welcome the declassified documents provided by the Prefect of Vanuku. The documents filled in all the gaps of the puzzle which confounded good relations for centuries. The President's soul can now rest easily, knowing that the story of her demise is finally and completely told. In addition, we can confirm that we are working with representatives of the Vanukese Government and representatives from Vanuku's large arms manufacturers on a deal for more than 130 Billion KBR in weapons and services. We have completely overestimated the cost of procurement of weapons We are working out the final details, but will have more information for the press soon."

The final terms of the deal are expected to be reached within the next three months. And not a moment too soon, as back home, Kalistan sinks closer toward war with Lourenne.

(OOC: I will be rebuilding Kalistan's military along the lines of Peru's military. Not one of the great powers, but regionally, one of the more important militaries along the South American coast.)

Kalistani Government calls for more Nationalization
KALMILINCO said to "centralize supply processes" of Kalistan's Military

Kaliburg, Ananto District
May 10, 4409

The Kalistani Government today called for a second round of Nationalization. The Bill, the KALMILINCO Charter, specifically nationalizes 9 weapons and logistics firms operating in Kalistan, reorganizes them under a single conglomerate and puts the Government at the head of these firms. "The Goal," Premier of the Republic Dianne Carrangus explained, "is to have supply when we need supply. One of the things that has been slowing down our production of naval and ground weaponry is that we have the ability to construct the hulls of the ships at the Naval Ship Yard, but we have to buy the guns, the electronics, the radar, the radios, the bunks and the chow from private firms. Since nationalization began, prices have predictably gone up. So the goal of this nationalization is simply to cut out the middle man. And when our Navy is up to speed, this institution, like the other, can produce goods and services for the international Market which Kalistan will happily export. But we need to make this stuff in house rather than rely on contracts and the capricious nature of the private market."

Investors of the expropriation will receive bonds for 80% of the face value of their interests in the companies listed, or may trade their old stock in at a rate of three old to one new. As in other nationalized operations, the Kalistani Government will own 51% of the stock and is forbidden from selling below that interest unless it seeks to liquidate the company all together. Publicly available stock will become available when the bill passes.

The Bill is fully expected to pass within 9 months.

FM William Signs Major Arms Deal with Vanuku
Vanukean Corporations to supply Kalistan Weapons

Weil, Vanuku
August 1, 4409

Foreign Minister Williams puts Final touches on Arms agreement

The Kalistani Foreign Minister completed his mission to Vanuku today with the inking of a major Arms purchase, aimed at rebuilding and modernizing the Kalistani Military. Vanuku will supply ships, tanks, aircraft, and small arms to Kalistan for just under 133 Billion KRB. The purchases were based upon the Kalistani Military audit completed before Williams' Departure and aim to completely supply the needs of Kalistan.

The deal was between the Kalistani Government and the Vanukean Government acting as an agent for the heavily subsidized Weapons industries in Vanuku. Shipyard Havendam and its subsidiaries will build the ships ordered by the Kalistani Government. Arms supplier Royal Kremj will produce tanks and infantry vehicles. Wrnukaék Tanhri will produce all aircraft for the Republic, and Anz'k Defence will produce the upwards of 100,000 small arms ordered by Williams. All electronics, firing systems, and avionics will be built by Vanutech Corporation. The purchases include cruisers, destroyers, frigates, Corvettes, Patrol boats, main battle tanks, armored cars, APCs, fixed and rotor wing aircraft, of both interceptor, CAS, and multipurpose, transport helos, and small arms. Kalistani weapons industries will continue to produce artillery and logistics and support vehicles, and support craft locally to augment the support elements of the Regular Forces.

All production is expected to be completed within a year and a half, with capital ships arriving by April 4411. The small arms will begin arriving in Kalistan within 3 Months.

Upon conclusion of talks and direct payment in full for all purchases, Williams thanked Vanukean Leaders for their hard work in putting this deal together, and welcomed Vanukean officials to Kalistan to discuss permanent diplomatic relations and a potentially closer security relationship between the two countries, though discussion of those issues at the moment exceeded his authorized mission.

Within two hours, Kalistani officials were boarding the long flight for home, grateful for the complete success in all negotiations. Williams said he looks forward to a long and very close relationship with Vanuku and will be willing to sit down with negotiators at their leisure.

Premier Slams Valruzia over Selayan Union Comments
Kalistan objects to "rogue nation" characterization by Imperialists

Kaliburg, Ananto District
December 15, 4409


Image
Premier Carrangus addresses Valruzian insults in Kaliburg

Called a "rogue nation" by Valruzian Foreign Minister Pilarczyk, Kalistan's Premier had some choice words to say in response:

"Well, Valruzia can take the Selayan Union and cram it. We aren't even members of that organization any longer, as it required Kalistan to lend its military in support of any bonkers adventure that the rest of the Continent decided to embark on. It goes without saying that Kalistan at the moment lacks the capability to live up to the terms of that agreement, but after such vicious comments in their Press the other day, we can add 'will' to the list of things we lack. Not only is Valruzia responsible for the Selayan Union, which is an organization that does not serve the National interests of Kalistan in the least, but they are also responsible for the deeply offensive Nowogard declaration which places a false equivalent on communist and fascist Parties. Happily, Valruzia crows about how it is so democratic. Unlike Kalistan, I suppose, where we have actually fought numerous civil wars against fascist incursions. Both of those two documents paint Valruzia as the hegemonic imperialist power that Valruzia is, and Kalistan is busy dealing with enough imperialists in Lourenne and Kazulia."


The Premier pointed out that Valruzia feigned indecision over whether to aid Kalistan or whether to aid Kazulia's and Lourenne's attempts to dismember Kalistani National Territory in the name of "their" trade routes.

"They're so torn: Rogue Kalistan or ultra powerful Northern Council. Balancing or Bandwagonning. Hmmmm... what should they do? Clearly their choice is already made: Valruzia claims to support Selayan Union. And yet it clearly prefers Dovani solidarity. Well, we welcome them to it. As long as they keep registering their civilian vessels and using their Transit Passes as they are supposed to within Kalistani Waters, we don't particularly care which foreign overlord's boots they lick."

The Premier was clearly rattled. When pressed, she released the news of the destruction of the two Kalistani Destroyers, and the loss of several LAFAs due to foreign action on the Northern Limit of the Straits.
"Frustrated? You can say that! We mourned the loss last night of 72 sailors and Partisans. I made 72 phone calls. three of them were to the same poor mother. When we closed the Straits, we did so because our security is at risk. We did so because these nations use our water and our resources as if its theirs, and at the moment, we lack the ability to turn them back. Can Kalistan hold out for another year and a half? I'm Confident that if we go down, Kaluzia and Lourenne will bleed with us. If they pry those straits back open, it will not be easy. They're going to have to occupy us, because as fast as we can built ships, we're going to harass their convoy routes and their shipping lanes every day until they acknowledge our control of those straits or beat us back into the stone age. And that's it."


With this, the Premier ended the interview and went into her office, slamming the door behind her.

Shipments of Vanukean Weaponry arrive in Kalistan
Vanuku delivers "on time"

Port Sweedes, Vrassa District
March 7, 4410


For the second time, a large convoy of Vanukean ships arrived at the sleepy port in northern Vrassa today. This convoy was carrying newly purchased Weaponry from Vanuukean defense industries, and was finally reaching its port of final destination to offload in Kalistan. All other traffic was denied entrance into the port while the Vanukean ships offloaded their cargo of 50 Helicopters (25 Attack and 25 Transport) (OOC: RL Equivalent AH 64 Apache and CH-47 Chinook respectively), 50 Cheetah Mk. IVtanks (OOC: RL Equivalent Leopard 2) 350 Salient Infantry fighting vehicles (OOC: RL Equivalent CV90 Combat Vehicles) and 160 Infantry Mobility Vehicles (OOC: RL Equivalent LGS Fennek). All told, more than 25 Billion KRB in Military equipment has arrived in Kalistan since last November.

Newly purchased Corvettes are escorted to Port Devon by Vanukean Naval Vessels

Accompanying these ships were 6 new Corvettes, dubbed in Kalistan "Sulari-Class" (OOC: RL Equivalent Braunschweig Class), which continued on to Port Devon at Kalibug, and joined the 12 new Gallegos-Class Offshore patrol boats (OOC: RL Equivalent Holland Class) and 20 new Eshar-Class Light Patrol Craft (OOC: RL Equivalent Armidale-Class) which arrived a couple months ago. These ships will form the mobile section of the new Kalistani Regular Navy. The arrival of the Corvettes signals a change in fortunes for the Kalistani Navy, which has suffered significant losses in recent weeks due to the ongoing conflict over the Ananto Straits. All remaining purchases from Vanuku are expected within the next year, as Vanukean factories work overtime to fill Kalistani Orders.

Both Defense Minister Santamaria and Foreign Minister Williams were on hand to receive the Military and Naval deliveries. Williams issued the following statement: "We are greatly satisfied with the Vanukean effort to meet our requests. This process lays a wonderful foundation for future talks between Kalistan and Vanuku. We look forward to discussing a security arrangement which will be aimed at free trade, and perhaps a new alliance between our two countries. Who knows. Of course, we are open to ideas, especially ones that explicitly balance the growing power of Kazulia and Lourenne in this region of the world. The Northern Alliance has taken far too many liberties with lands which are not their own, and our hope is that they can be checked from expanding any further. We hope closer relations with Vanuku will allow Kalistan to take a leading role in that check."
