Korsmo Electronics and Communications announced that it will be ceasing operations in Dankuk after a decision made by the company's board of directors. In a media release, the company outlined various issues which the subsidiary Korsmo Telekom faced during its time in Dankuk including threats against its staff, several reported break-ins into the headquarters in Taeyangsudo and repeated claims by Dankukin police that the company had been spying on the Dankukin population on behalf of the Kazulian Government. The telecommunication company has operated out of Dankuk as the nation's market, at the time of the subsidiary's creation, showed promise for upcoming businesses. However, in recent times, the nation's economy has been taking several beatings at the hands of Kazulian economic sanctions in response to the nation's actions in the regional spectrum and as such business development has been on a low. According to CEO of Korsmo Telekom, Otto Frydenlund, the economic decline in Dankuk coupled with the economic sanctions imposed on the nation by the government which barred Kazulian companies from interacting with Dankukin business and political entities forced the company to focus on expanding its international profile whilst not being allowed to interact with Dankukin business and political entities. Frydenlund stated that although the company had not interacted with Dankukin businesses, the company had focused on expanding into the international market with its international operations being based in the Dankuk headquarters.

CEO of Korsmo Electronics and Communications, Karianne Christiansen ordered the cessation of Korsmo Telekom operations in Dankuk. With the company turning out with losses due to monthly expanses having to be paid at the hands of Kazulian economic sanctions, Christiansen stated that the Board of Directors had come to the decision that the company would cease its operations in Dankuk. In a letter to the editor, Chief Operations Manager of Korsmo Telekom, Vilhelm Tae-Hee (Kazulian of Kyo decent), offered his insight into the cessation of operations.
I have spoken to Mr. Frydenlund on several occasions and he had expressed his concern for the staff which the company will leave behind. With the travel ban barring Dankukin citizens from entering Kazulia, once the company closes it doors it leaves almost 3,000 Dankukin citizens without employment. I received a letter from Mr. Frydenlund and Ms. Christiansen informing me that the company will be paying each employee their final salary, by next month, when operations official cease. Already the company is dismantling its telecommunication systems scattered across the country, citing that the Kazulian Department of Trade and Industry warned of imposing massive fines if the company had left its infrastructure in Dankuk intact, thus allowing for Dankukin companies and other entities to utilise the infrastructure for various activities. I have sent back letters to both Mr. Frydenlund (who has been called back to Sutherland, Kazulia) and Ms. Christiansen asking them as to what will be the company's next step, as i believe they will not abandon their employees.


Christiansen stated that Dankukin operations would be relocated to Indrala and Sekowo with some of its Dankukin staff being sent to Sekowo. Frydenlund stated that he will remain as the CEO of Korsmo Telekom and would see the opening of Korsmo Telekom Indrala and Korsmo Telekom Sekowo. According to Christiansen, the Indralan and Sekowan markets had shown promise for stability and opportunity for the company to expand. According to Christiansen, Paek Tae-Hee will be transferred from Dankuk to Indrala where he is expected to govern over Korsmo Telekom Indrala. Christiansen placed a significant emphasis on the importance of ensuring that Korsmo Telekom Indrala's launch would be welcomed in the Indralan telecommunication market as she has stated that Frydenlund expressed great desire in introducing new systems within the Indralan market. For now the company's transition is underway with the "great relocation" set for tomorrow. It has been reported the Korsmo Telekom infrastructure including fibre wires and cell-phone towers are being dismantled in accordance with Kazulian government regulations.

Armed Forces to train Hulstrian and Sekowan Soldiers
Kazulian Armed Forces launches long-term training programme for Hulstrian troops.

Kazulian military personnel will begin training troops from the Hulstrian Armed Forces under a long-term agreement between the nations, in an attempt to prepare the nations to be fully integrated into the Northern Council. The Hulstrian Armed Forces according the Zardic Institute for International Affairs is considered to be a small military powers, possessing an under-equipped, and under-trained armed forces. According to officials from the International Military Assistance and Training (IMAT) Programme, the Hulstrian Armed Forces must contribute to security throughout the region and as such the Kazulian Armed Forces is prepared to institute the reforms needed in bringing the Hulstrian Armed Forces onto a footing on par with the Kazulian Armed Forces or better in some cases. Brigadier Torsten Järnefelt, Commander of the Kazulian Military Assistance and Training team sent to Hulstria, stated that as time develops, the Department of Defence will expand the Military Assistance and Training Programme to involve the Hulstrian Armed Forces in deployments throughout the region and possibly within other continents as the Northern Council dictates.

The training is apart of the Kazulian Armed Forces' efforts to strengthen Hulstria's ability to defend itself following an increase in instability within the region, specifically in the north. Järnefelt stated that the current phase of the military assistance and training programme was aimed at developing tactics for the Hulstrian Armed Forces and honing their combat skills. He stated that he was uncertain of whether a memorandum of understanding similar to that between Kazulia and Lourenne would be applied by the Department of Foreign Affairs, however he voiced support of the idea, citing it as a possible positive vector towards the Hulstrian Armed Forces becoming more combat effective and being capable of defending themselves and more. Currently, the Hulstrian Armed Forces stands with a minor bracket and according to Brigadier Järnefelt, although the current numbers are satisfactory for a nation of its size and calibre, the issue lies in the nation's outward capabilities. He cited that the lack of interpolarity within the nations' armed forces would make it difficult for the nation to properly transition into the formations of the Northern Council.

Although plans for the formation of joint language training have been proposed, this is be introduced once the nation has completely integrated into the Northern Council formations. The languages spoken within the Northern Council are: Kazulianisk, Dundorfian, Canrillaise, Dorvish and Luthorian. The addition of a Hulstrian speaking nation would offer an increased understanding of the language by other Northern Council members, mainly Dorvik, Hutori, Luthori, Lourenne, New Endralon and Kazulia. It has been speculated that once Hulstria's aerospace forces have been primed for combat, the Northern Defence Integrated Command will introduce the nation to its joint aerospace monitoring alliance.

Defence firms seeking to increase international weapons sales

Posterior to the government's decision to ease restrictions on arms sales by Kazulian defence companies, it has long been the objective of these defence firms to increase their international profile through arms sales to various international and regional entities. Previously the government had imposed restrictions on the sale of weapons made exclusively for the Kazulian Armed Forces, barring the companies that made them from selling said equipment on the international market. Between 4370 and 4390, the Kazulian defence industry has seen a boost in activity, particularly in defence contracts issued by the Department of Defence in accordance with the armed forces' modernisation programme. Although certain arms agreements had been made with the Lourennais government, the Kalopian government and the Hulstrian government, however various officials within the defence industry has stated that various nations including Hawu Mumenhes, Vanuku and Hutori show great potential for the defence industry to develop within Kazulia. In the past years, the demand for arms has increased due to the significant security challenges that have developed throughout the world. This trend has also resulted in a marked increase in minor Kazulian arms exports to various nations (mainly allies), which is expected to continue in the years to come.

Last year, Dovani became the largest destination for Kazulian arms exports as the scope of Dovanian defence deals with Kazulia more than tripled—from $800 million to $2.4 Billion LOD. This trend continued, as Kazulia's defence exports to certain Majatran countries reached $1.2 billion, far exceeding its transactions with the countries of Artania ($700 million) and Seleya ($300 million) but still less than its defence exports to the countries of Dovani ($2.4 billion). This surge in Kazulian arms procurement is linked to a general growth in the defence budgets of Dovanian countries, which increased by 3 percent on average between 4380 and 4390. Kazulia supplied Dovanian countries with technological solutions for monitoring national borders, fighting terrorism, and protecting against cyber threats, a component which has become increasingly significant in the arsenal of Kazulian defence companies. The most significant elements of the overall export agreements signed by the Kazulian arms industry in 4390 have been the enhancement of planes and air systems (20 percent), observation and optics (18 percent), missiles and air defence systems (15 percent), ammunition and weapons positions (13 percent), radar technology (12 percent), intelligence, information, and cyber systems (8 percent), and UAVs (7 percent).

According to Magnus Rosenblad, Chairman and CEO of Asvald Gruppen stated that the company would be opening various defence systems to the international market including the AC-16 (HK416), AC-13 (AK5) and the Gng m/58 (Carl Gustav recoilless rifle) AV-13 Fiskeørn, the AV60 (CV90) armoured vehicle, the Tapperhet Oplot (Patria Pasi), the Tapperhet AMV (Patria AMV), the Skjǫldr family of missile defence systems (NASAMS) and the Artillerisystem 56 (ARCHER Artillery System), with companies such as Viserby Systems and Pennington-Reid opening systems as the PT70 (CB90), the Queen Ingrid-class amphibious assault ship (Canberra-class), the Flindar-class submarine (Gotland-class) and according to Pennington-Reid CEO Patrick Westermark, the company would be opening the Project CB002 Combat Boat to bidding for companies to be included in the vessel's development and construction. According to Westermark, opening the project for the inclusion of other defence firms and potentially national governments would allow for the vessel to obtain the technological prowess seeing in the Z-35 Joint Strike Fighters and X-43 Programme. It is expected that this bold move by the Kazulian Defence Industry could prove beneficial towards its development, seeing that it is one of the most experienced and capable defence industries in the world.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Sindre Granberg announced a series of landmark moves aimed at normalising ties with Deltaria amid years of tumultuous relations. Strengthened relations, according to an official statement by the Department of Foreign Affairs has the potential of allowing for the Kingdom of Kazulia to be re-introduced into the Majatran community after decades of being diplomatic silence with the due to the previous various regional constraints. In the past months Minister Granberg has been steadfast on improving diplomatic relations with various nations across the international spectrum amid her announced intentions of improving the soft power clout of the Kingdom of Kazulia and positioning the nation on a better standing that it current is as it pertains to diplomatic relations.
Relations between Deltaria and Kazulia must normalise before we move forward on any agreement. Similar to our policy on Istalia, once a formal normalisation of relations has been agreed up, we intend on moving forward with trade agreement, diplomatic agreements and perhaps military agreements between the two nations. However, a normalisation of relations must be unanimously agreed upon.

Minister Granberg announced the landmark moves during her visit to Deltaria. She announced her intention to form a formal diplomatic and trade agreement between the Deltaria and Kazulia. The proposed agreement would be the first formal agreement between Kazulia and a majatran nation in decades. Although some speculated that Kazulia first majatra trade agreement would be signed with the Istalian Republic, however, Granberg knocked down the idea, citing the fact that although such an agreement will come in the future, it will not come as soon as the agreement with Deltaria.

Kazulian-led coalition storm stronghold fortresses

Earlier this morning, on the background of the Northern Council's operations in Bianjie, it had been announced that the Kazulian-led coalition had liberated the cities of Asahama and Garaat from imperial control, in what has been dobbed as the first major engagement in the conflict between the Northern Council and Emperor Itoh's Bianjie. According to information released by the Federal Department of Defence, thousands of Kazulian, Lourennais and Hulstrian troops attacked various fortresses around the cities of Asahama and Garaat, moving by land and through the air to destroy the imperial army's largest havens in the province and begin a campaign to reassert the presence of the Indralan minority and a democratic government in the form of the Northern Council sponsored National Reconstructive Assembly. The force of about 120,000—a majority being Indralan militia—began moving into the two cities simultaneously around midnight. As Hulstrian and Lourennais ground troops enter the outskirts of the cities, Kazulian paratroopers were dropped in the middle of both cities via helicopter insertion. During their operations to secure various positions around the cities and establish positions around the fortresses, the paratroopers received little to no resistance mainly due to the fact that according to officials within the FDoD, Kazulian special operations teams had swept the cities before the airborne insertion. With most of the residents in the town still sleeping, Brigadier Nicolai Ditlevsen, commander of the airborne operation, the objective of the combined insertion of ground forces and airborne troops was not to shake the branch, but to bring down the entire tree.

Prior to assaulting the major fortresses, aircraft from the Kazulian Air Force pounded fortifications around the fortress' perimeter and also bombed positions in northern Bianjie where high ranking commanders were believed to be hiding. Hulstrian troops began to establish cordons around the city in anticipation of the ground assault that would follow. Outside Asahama and Garaat stand stronghold positions of the Imperial Army, whereby the Imperial Army had been firmly entrenched. At dawn, Kazulian, Hulstrian, Lourennais and Indralan militia made their way through the town and towards the fortress. Through close-air-support, the fortress' inner fortifications had been brought down via bunker-busting missiles. According to Brigadier Ditlevsen, stiff resistance had been met upon entering the massive fortresses. Ditlevsen stressed on the importance of speed with respect to the operation itself, citing Emperor Itoh's proclamation of an insurgency against the coalition-forces, operations had to been conducted before the civilian population were aware that the fortresses were under attack. Psychological warfare units had conducted operations throughout Bianjie, as it had been believed by General Holger Kirkegaard, commander of Northern Council operations in Bianjie, the war must be aimed at wining the hearts and minds of the people.

The operation concluded when the Northern Council hoisted a flag of the National Reconstructive Assembly above the fortresses in Asahama and Garaat. Although it has been reported that minor skirmishes are on-going, major battle-groups of the Imperial Army had been destroyed, with paratroopers reporting to have eliminated a quick reaction force which served in reserve to the fortresses and their garrisoned troops. In other news, following recent developments in the Sea of Lost Souls, the Kazulian signals intelligence ship KNS-Oliver Fiske had been ordered to withdraw from the region after gathering data on Hawu Mumenhes, Istalia and Saridani military units, with a response from the Northern Council to be announced in the coming days.

FDoD concludes multi-million dollar deal with Selucia and Lourenne
Department of Defence concludes major multi-million dollar deal with Selucia and Lourenne on arms procurement.

Earlier this morning, the Department of Defence announced that it had concluded negotiations with Selucia and Lourenne on a $5 Billion LOD arms deal which will provide the aforementioned nations with armoured vehicles, surface-to-air missile systems and submarines. After 3 months of secret negotiations by Foreign Minister Sindre Granberg, it had been concluded that the kazulian government, through its recent move to open various defence systems to the international market, would sell and construct weapons systems for the Selucian and Lourennais government. While it had been speculated that the main goal of the negotiations was to continue the relationship between the governments in Skalm, Eroncourt and Auroria, especially with Eroncourt as Lourennais maintains a defence and security memorandum of understanding with Kazulia which enables Lourenne to procure weapons from Kazulia, it was equally important to improve the capabilities of Selucia. According to Minister Granberg, the objective of the deal made between Kazulia, Lourenne and Kazulia was not made to boost the capabilities of the aforementioned nations, but was to boost the relationship between the respective governments.

Under the agreements, each nation would be allowed to purchase advanced armaments from Kazulian contractors. In the case of Lourenne, there entailed a $5 Billion LOD Kazulian financial assistance package that would be placed on top of the existing $5 Billion LOD military aid package. Lourenne, according to officials from Asvald Gruppen, would purchase armoured vehicles, specifically 50 Tapperhet AMVs and 6 units of the Skjǫldr-1 air defence system. Selucia would purchase 5 units of the Skjǫldr-1 air defence system and it has been reported that both Pennington-Reid and Asvald Gruppen will be working together on developing a variant of the Kazulian Navy's Flindar-class (Gotland-class) submarines made for the specifications of the Selucian Navy. The arms deal had little to no opposition within the Stortinget with some politicians calling for the government to increase arms sales, especially to nations such as Lourenne and Hulstria, whom have been slowly moving towards modernising their respective armed forces.

According to an official from within the Federal Department of Defence, the deals between Selucia and Lourenne had made a combined total of around $5 Billion LOD. Under the terms of the agreement as it pertains to Lourenne, the Tapperhet AMVs would enable Lourenne to move troops rapidly from points A to B under armoured protection. According to an official from Asvald Gruppen, the variant of the AMVs being constructed for Lourenne would be the Tapperhet AMV-B3 and AMV-B2 which are modifications of the stock AMV which is specifically made as tank destroyers and urban warfare respectively. Separate from the aforementioned arms deal, Lourenne will be receiving military hardware under the Kazulian-Lourennais Memorandum on Defence and Security. Under the terms of the memorandum, the Kazulian defence industry would assist in the procurement of Lourennais combatant equipment including combatant ships and armoured vehicles. Currently, the Lourennais Armed Forces is in need of a major modernisation. As the nation becomes increasingly involved in international incidents including the nation's involvement in the situation in Medina, a modern and combat effective Lourennais Armed Forces would significantly contribute to stability within the region of Dovani. Currently, the Lourennais Navy receives monthly combat training from the Kazulian Navy, the most modern and capable navies in the Northern Hemisphere and one of the most powerful navies in the wider world.

Kazulia aims for manned moon landing by 4410
Kazulia wants to put astronauts on the moon by 4410, proposes united front with Hutori.

The Kazulian Government wants to place astronauts on the moon by 4410, an official from the Space Exploration and Exploitation Directorate (SEED) said, as it would be the latest goal in the Kazulian space exploration programme. Although Kazulia has been to the moon in the form of a Kazulian flag sent to the moon through the Dorvish and Trigunian space programmes, Kazulia is yet to send a man into space or to the moon using its own rockets. SEED had conducted various lunar operations mainly via "soft landings" in the form of the Skolopender rover. Apart of the space exploration push by SEED, the nation intends on pushing the narrative of a global push towards space and strengthening cooperation in the form of the potential formation of an international lunar station. Kazulia must “raise its abilities and use the next 15 to 20 years to realise manned lunar exploration goals, and take a firm step for the Kazulian people in breaking ground in the utilisation of space”, Gjur Wallenberg, Director of the Space Exploration and Exploitation Directorate. A review conducted by the directorate revealed that several advances needed to be made before SEED could send a Kazulian into space and onto the moon. The review suggested that the space programme would have to obtain a powerful enough rocket to lift a payload of at least 100 metric tons into low orbit and also develop space suits for a lunar mission.

Since 4387, SEED has been conducting various tests with the Stormspike family of launch vehicles, with the Stormspike XII being the latest Super heavy-lift launch vehicle capable of launching large payloads into space. In previous times, the Stormspike launch vehicles had proven to have various technical issues. This was seen in 4367 when the Stormspike VII launch vehicle had to be brought down by Guardian missile defence systems after technical issues. Advancing the space programme is of great importance to Skalm, as various domestic changes are dependent on the nation's position in space. The Government White Paper on the Future of the Kazulian Armed Forces outlined the importance of the modernisation of surveillance and electronic warfare systems within the nation and called for the launching of two additional GAMS satellites and the deployment of another in the Southern Hemisphere. The Defence Department has expressed urgency on the modernisation/upgrade of the GAMS satellites positioned in the Northern Hemisphere under the control of the Northern Council and the Northern Defence Integrated Command (NORDIC).

In a change of events, the Hutorian government has recently re-activated its space programme known as Project Lunar Arrow, which similar to the ambitions of SEED, would attempt to land a Hutorian astronaut on the moon. Hutori's space exploration agency, SERA (Space Exploration and Research Agency), launched Project Lunar Arrow years before SEED announced its intentions of launching a lunar programme. According to Director Wallenberg, he had already contacted the Hutorian Government and the Director of SERA on a possible joint venture on sending a Hutorian and a Kazulian to the moon. Currently, SEED will continue advancing the Stormspike family of rockets to be better prepared for lunar missions and beyond.

Piracy in Central Dovani increases dramatically ~ FESO
Incidents in Sovereign Sea, Midway Gulf and Midway Canal puts international shipping at risk
Image

Pirate attacks in the Sovereign Sea, the Midway Gulf and along the Midway Canal have increased dramatically, rising fears that the affected region could disrupt international trade passing through the aforementioned bodies of water, this is according to the Defence Intelligence and Security Organisation (FESO) which has been monitoring developments in the Sovereign Sea since the initial dispatching of Kazulian naval assets to the region. It had been reported by FESO and the nations along the Sovereign Sea and the Midway Gulf that there had been an increasing frequency in pirate attacks against commercial ships travelling along the aforementioned routes. Piracy in the Sovereign Sea, the Midway Gulf and along the Midway Canal has escalated from low-level armed robberies to hijackings, cargo thefts and large-scale robberies over the past eight months, according to FESO. Annually, FESO produces a list of "High-Risk" international trade routes, although the Sovereign Sea, the Midway Gulf and the Midway Canal were not listed mainly due to the attempts of the Kazulian Navy in combating the clout of piracy over the past decade, the aforementioned bodies of water are expected to be placed on the list once more, with them being marked as "Extreme-Risk" areas with advisories to avoid transit along the waters.

Piracy posses a grave threat to international shipping coming into Central Dovani, Vascania and Western Majatra along the Red Bass Ocean. Various nations such as Midway are extremely dependent on international shipping, with the nations along the Sea of Carina being extremely dependent on international shipping coming through the Midway Canal. While lower than the 102 attacks attributed to Rapa Pile pirates in 4380, analysts say the number of attacks off Midway waters are unreported for unknown reasons.
Bernhard Graversen, an analyst at FESO wrote:The situation in Central Dovani is increasingly deteriorating, with large amounts of international shipping being diverted from the region over fears of piracy. We [Kazulia] have been fighting piracy in this region for decades now on our own without the assistance of the international community and it is becoming clear to us that we need international support.


Piracy in the region has been a problem for Kazulia since the nation initially involved itself in the situation with the intentions of bringing the situation to an end. Piracy in other regions have been encouraged by the impact of piracy in Central Dovani, as their focus tends to be on robberies and kidnapping for ransoms rather than seizing vessels. According to Commander of the National Coast Guard of Midway, Commander Hoshino Shinsui, pirates within the Midway Gulf and in the Midway Canal are more violent than their counterparts operating in the Sovereign Sea, with reports documenting pirates shooting and brutally torturing the crew of various ships. Just last week a coast guard vessel was ambushed along the winding channels of the Midway Canal which resulted in the deaths of the vessel's crew and the subsequent capture of the vessel by pirates. Officials from the Kazulian Navy and the Midway Coast Guard met on-board the KNS-Ruben Saether frigate which operates in the region alongside 5 additional vessels to discuss piracy concerns. Vice-Admiral Thorvald Eskildsen, commander of the Kazulian anti-piracy operation coined Operation Marlin, has called upon Kazulia's Northern Council allies and the wider international community to assist in anti-piracy operations. It has been reported that the Kazulian Navy will be positioning additional vessels in the region as apart of its attempts to address the rising frequency of pirate attacks.
