No refugee garbage will cross the Solentian border

I have decided to put our border troops on high alert and double the voltage going through our boder fences with Kalopia. It is absolutly irresponsible that this dangerous garbage wants to enter any proper and peaceful country.
Our officers are encouraged to use deadly force to avoid any illegal crossing.


commented the minister for defence and internal affairs in a joint press conference. Both also underlined that no contribution (monetary or else) will be made to the world congress or its affiliated organisations. The voltage now going through the border fence is strong enough to kill a person.

Four refugees killed: Government confirms its intentions

Four refugees from the republic of Zardugal or Cobura were killed yesterday in an attempt to cross the border from Kalopia to Solentia. Two of them were children which were 4 and 6 years old. All were killed when they tried to break through the border post near Justville along the Solentian-Kalopian border. Their documentation included proof of passing several Majatran countries and their intention to continue their journy into Istalia. During the last two weeks more than 50 dead bodies were found along and at the border fence. Most of them are estimated to have been killed by an electric shock or the self-shotting devices. In sveral statements the Solentian government urged the Kalopian side to stop any illegal migration from its side.
Some of the warning shots and teargas which was used to repell another group of refugees trying to storm the same border post also reached Kalopian soil. In further preperation the government has ordered bulldozers, machine guns and flamethrowers to push away any illegal immigrants from the border and to close off several border posts completly.

We can only speculate about such foolish motives but our impression is that the Istalian government also created a kind of suction effect on any refugees on the Majatran continent. We however are determind to hold firm and our officers are instructed to use deadly force. This invasion will not be allowed.

Biological and chemical arsenal to be updated: Artillery soon be announced

The defence minister announced the complete update of all WMD and by the end of the deacade the introduction of the first new chemical and biological artillery shell. Independent oberservers expect some kind of crossbreeds to be presented. The update will also include some of the researching and prodcution facilities. While the WMD-programm continues the conventional forces are to be reformed. Up to 200,000 soldiers and 200 tanks and 70 airplanes shall be on duty 24/7 while an additional 300,000 shall form the prime reserve with constant training.
Details of the plan will be published on the white paper defence soon. Experts estimate that the Solentians will rely heavily on the Istalians to fulfill their conventional plans.

Coup d'etat in Solentia: Left-wing elements targeted

In the early hours of the morning the First Soldier empowered by the constitution and in close cooperation with the defence minister and minister for internal affairs, called a coup d'etat in the whole of Solentia. Police, military and intelligence serviced as well as the border troops acted together in bringing the country back to its conservative nature. The media and internet have been turned off by the miltary as well.

Some left-wing elements tabelled more than 10 laws to curtail the power of the military including the end of many weapons programmes within one month of its election victory. This sledgehammer method caused much anger even among the many moderate generals in the army which fear for their prestige and power and for their secrets. Together with the intended abolishment of the bank secrecy some observers also suggest that police and military leaders my be subject to judicial procedures as the left-wing elements also plans to abolish the special military and police courts which seem to protect the high ranks rather than investigate allegations of missmanagings of funds and other irregularities including human rights violations around the WMD programme. The defence and police leadership also confirmed the burning of many important papers in case the coup would not suceed.
Furthermore the First Soldier confimed also that if the military were to weakened it might not be able to fend off suggestions to cut the massive military budget which stands at around 7% of the GDP.

Additionally most of the military and police personnel thanks to decades of FNB rule are themselves member of the FNB. They now also fear for their careers should other parties get into power. Gnereally, all security forces lean more to the right than left.

Within half a day the military and police closed down all parlamantarian offices of several members of parliament and more than 12,000 people which are subjected to immidate dentention. The forces also seized the financial resources of some trade unions and left-leaning persons. A further call-up of reservists has been ordered with 100,000 men to keep order.The forces yet struggle to do so. Some veterans in fear of the pension also joined the military.


The new majority party has not approached the miltary leadership in any other way rather than conflict. We cannot accept this and can also not exercise a wait and see attitude as some elements force our hand with their sledgehammer methode. For our god and fatherland we have to act with the support of the acting government and police and border forces as well as the intelligence services.

First Soldier clearly draws the lines

As in the past and enshrined in the constitution the military as well as the police and the intelligence services do see themselves as gurantor for the conservative nature of Solentia. I therefore asked the defence minister to bring in a new law which serves to better control any left-wing tendencies in this country. I will not allow that the left-wing cancer comes back to Solentia and takes root. The necessary monetary needs have been already passed by the Senate by allocating 8 billion more to the police and military. I expect the new center against left-wing tendencies to target the two left-wing movements in our country.

New white paper of defence enthusistsically greeted

The draft for the new white paper on defence has been presented to the ministerial select committee on defence by the military leadership. The first few key features which are being dicussed are:

- Increase of the military expenditure to 10% of the GDP within the next ten years
- Esbalishment of a total manpower size of 250,000 men regular soldiers including border troops and 50,000 for air force and marine
- Establishment of a new guidline for training and new training colleges
- Increase of the compulsory military service from 12 months to 20 months straight after leaving school and compulsory continous duty until the age of 50 for every man, meaning every year for 4 weeks
- Founding of a hard core reserve of 200,000 men with 3 months of training each year between the age 18-49
- Establishment of a voluntary silver reserve of those able-bodied man over 50 with a target size of 200,000 men with 3 months of regular training and exercise each year
- all these figures exclude civilian and auxiliary personnel
- Opening up combat units towards women in seperate units
- development of long-range biological and chemical capabilities with the help of two new submarines
- modernaization of the existing biological and chemical capabilities which are estimated at about 10.000 artillery shells
- blasting a 50 m deep and 100 m wide trench along all land borders and fortifie all land border further with bunkers and watchtowers
- Target size for the air force: 200 fighter and bomber aircraft
- increase the size of the navy to 50 ships and 50 air based vehicles
- modernaize all soldiers equipment and technical and infrastructural deficits and buildings+ new weapons for all three branches of the military
- establish a new cyber unit
- import 3000 of the latest tanks and 1000 new artillery which is capable of carrying the chemical and biological capabilities
- make cities impregnable by errecting heavily built watchtowers and improving air protection and by introducing movable barriers
-introduce mobile barriers to all motorways and plant explosives on all bridges and other important points
- construct and refit all defence and government bunkers to withstand at least 25 kp/cm²

All these plans are intended to into the whitepaper which is set to be presented before the Senate soon. The First Soldier already signalled his agreement but remains anxious whether the new financial requierements can be fulfilled by parliament. But to most observes it seems clear already, that Solentia will rely heavily on Istalia to import the necessary goods to fulfill its ambitious plans. Many observes also see this plan as reaction to the increasingly unruley Majatran situation.

Solentian government fully supports Istalia

Given recent statements by Istalian officials the Solentian government already signalled full support and help by Solentian ports and railways and motorways should the moving of Istalian war material suddenly become necessary by land or if the existing harbour capacities should exceed the Istalian capacities. Some 3,000 voluntary man shall be made available if the Istalian side wishes to do so. The industrial complex of Solentia is also more than exited to serve Istalia in case of a war which should allow the Solentians to get access to latest military technology.

As always we stand behind our Istalian friends like one man. They can trust completly upon Solentian solidarity.

Border controls at Solentian-Istalian border increased: 4000 conscipts on stand by

During a visit at the Solentian-istalian border the first soldier and minister of defence announced the deployment of 300 additional border soldiers and the allocation of 4000 conscipts to the joint border to support ongoing safety efforts to fight the radical elements within Istalia responsible for at least two terrorist attacks there. Well informed sources said that everthing is being done to ensure the radical terror will not spread to Solentia and to help the Istalian authorities in their quest to find those responsible for the deaths of innocent people.

In close cooperation with the Istalians we have increased our border partols and deployed more personnel to allow for more vehicles to be searched. I intend to do everything possible to help the Istalians to fight off terrorism even if it means discomfort for travelers or business. Experience showes that terrorists now more than ever before are flexible and not hindered by borders.

We stand in deep solidarity with the Istalian government and the Istalian people and my government expresses its deep sorrow about the the recent terrorist attacks.


Solentia is the only country which shares a land border with Istalia and although the border is heavily fortifight the ever increasing lorry and rail traffic towards Istalia is normally being efficently managed by border checkpoints.

Solentian governenment welcomes Istalian Istalian President of the Council of Ministers

During the four course working lunch with the first soldier and other high-ranking officials both sides agreed that the ongoing fight against terrorism was the priority number one and will remain that for an extended period of time. The First Soldier underlined that the tightened border security measures will remain in effect as long as the Istalian government wishes so. Furthermore both sides agreed that in future the Istalians and Solentians will try even more to resolve their different opinions in close consultation and on an equal level.
Foreign Minister Gehard Schürer emphasised that both countries enjoy excellent working and economic relations and scientific exchange but the recent statements by the Istalian ambassador were seen as clouds on the horizon as many Solentian officials seen it as treating Solentia as a province of Istalia resulting in a movement away from the Istalian-Solentian relationship towards the Consortium Alliance.

Image

The Solentian side especially welcomed the change of tone by Mr De Felice in comparison to his predecessors. At the end the foreign minister said:

Our wishes towards the Istalian side are pretty clear:

1. Assurance that a membership in the Consortium Alliance and a deepened friendship treaty between our two countries is compatible.
2. The signing of a comprehensive agreement about the technolgical support and delivery of military equipement to Solentia
3. Foundation of a Solentian-Istalian youth initative, deepening cultural exchange.
4. Joint investment into two cross-border projects: Modernaized railways and a joint sea port

All these four initatives seek to become for Solentia to become an even more useful friend and supporter of the Istalians. But as a government we also see that we have room for improvement and it is our intention to work out a comprehensive code of human rights to give the constitutional court a basis of judgement. The help of the Istalians is warmly welcomed in this matter.



After the working lunch both delegations visited the National Defence University where four Istalian professors currently teach and research. The university is notorious for its chemical and biologicals weapons programm and the Istalian delegation were given a guided tour through the premisis and afterwards several discussion opportunities with academics and students were provided. The chorus on the Solentian side was that these weapons are necessary solely for self-defence and the development of long-range capabilities are to be frozen as a sign of goodwill.

Let us not shy away from the fact that this institution is seen as absolutly critical towards the survival of Solentia. This faculty, this university provides the security we need but i want to say also clearly that we value the academic exchange with the Istalians very much and would like to see more of that. And it is an esteem honour to have the President of Istalia here today. Thank you for coming, Mr De Felice.
said the chancellor of the university.

The President was also given an example of the frozen long-range carrier programm. After the visit the both delegations were off to the great Gala Dinner with the President of Solentia.

Istalian visit in Solentia ends with a great success

Day two of the short visit ended with signing of a memorandum which cofirms and underlines the everlasting friendship between the two nations:

The Repubblica Istaliana and the United Solentian Republic agree in a spirit of mutual trust that differences and problems shall always be solved peacefully and in the spirit of the Istalian-Solentian treaty of friendship both countries aim at an evercloser cooperation across all political issues while acknowleding the differences and unique cultural and poltical differences as well and respecting the sovereignity of each other. Both nations are committed towards peace in Majatra and across terra and will work together to achieve the goal of terranwide peace and freedom for all people while also respecting each others sovereignity. Mutual help in times of need is emphasized again.
Solentia therefore promises, building upon Istalian support to further uphold the border controls and to cooperate to the fullest extend to bring terrorists and criminals to justice while interruptions to trade and transport are aimed to be kept at an absolut minimum.
Solentia and Istalia promise to insitute visa free entry for students which want to study up to two semesters in the other nation. In the case of Solentia the ministry for internal affairs will immidiately execute the new set of rules.
Both nations also will set up a permanent committe between the Solentian and Istalian ministry of infrastructure to prepare a joint port project and a joint electricity grid and coordinated planning in terms of rail tracks and motorways. Istalia also will support Solentia with expertise to allow Solentia to upgrade all motorways to four-lane traffic. Solentia promises to finally upgrade all its motorways and railways until the year 4480.
Should the project of a tunnel under the mountains between the two countries become reality: Solentia promises to participate in the costs.

Istalia also pledges to allow Solentia full commercial access to its conventional military products which Solentia again pledges only to use for its own protection. Solentia sees its role in the continous mediation between the Consortium Alliance and will therefore aim to become a associated member of this alliance while firmly aiming at an evercloser friendship with Istalia.


Image
In a first test vote the Senat voted in favour of the memorandum

The two day visit is expected to have far-reaching implications for the two nations as the parliaments of both countries are expected to pass the memorandums. As DeFelice already emphasised so did the First Soldier along with the cabinet of Solentia. The general feeling on the Solentian side is that cooperation with Istalia is the only way to enhance growth and propserity. However among the fraction in parliament many members are still highly sceptical and the absolut red line chemical and biological weapons programm emerged many times during the last few day as the concession the Solentian side will never be prepared to make. Istalian military equipment has the opportunity to act as a total game changer in the power balance in Southern Majatra with some Solentian experts seemingly to see Solentia to become the buffer zone and willing executer against attempts by other foreign powers to encircle Istalia or recruite allies against Istalia.
The Solentian side thanked the government in Istalia for their patience and trust.

The visit was clearly a success for the strong military leadership in Solentia as the total grip of the military over Solentia's civil administration becomes even tighter day by day. The recently agreed increases in the military budget which follow the white paper hiked the military expenditure to 13% of the countries GDP.
