New International Economic Centre Ready to Open In Santiago
The Federation of Anzoania invites all nations to engage in trade agreements. Amidst rising calls for more foreign engagement has lead the government to ramp up its bid for global economic trade. In doing so we are establishing an economic centre in the capital of Santiago, All countries, are able to apply for the allocation of offices. From there we will definitely engage in economic relations. Our large mineral deposits and agriculture industries are poised to grow. Major imports of manifactured goods are more than welcome, and we will arrange meetings, and deals to secure such trade of the state, on this basis. We look forward in bringing shared prosparities to each of our nations. We hope this will encourage foreign trade to Anzoaniaia, amidst our economic slowdown. Recently a new Cooper mine was established which could potentially provide significant deposits of minerals, therefore it is in our best interest to trade such resourcees for prosperity, in moderation.
We believe that this could help drive a future of cleaner energies and so in the future we can focus on a much diversified economy. We wish to encourage tourism to our safe nation, the stunning Andes Alpines are something worth visiting, our friendly culture also. But more importantly we wish to venture out into the world also, so if you engage in such we will certainly encourage our people to visit your great nation.
Our nation is eagerly awaiting trade discussions.
Yours comradely, Julian Garcia, Minister of Foreign Trade

Subject: Cooperation in Trade.
I wish to bring to your attention our interest in developing trade relations with Anzoania. We are very eager to expand our trade relations further afield and as of this moment we have not had the opportunity to develop our trade relations in the South American region. The proposed economic centre in Santiago is something I am sure a number of Romanovan companies would wish to be involved in, particularly those involved in the financial sector.
The Romanovan financial sector is world renowned for its expertise and efficiency. RGT Group is one of the leading private banking and asset management groups in the world. They are also experts in wealth preservation, something that could be of great use to the bright entrepreneurs of Anzoania ensuring they can maintain liquidity. There is also RZ Shtyurmer Bank, which is a commercial bank that is also well respected, offering world class service in the area of general banking.
We are also a highly industrialised nation, particularly given our small size. We have a number of companies specialising in areas such a shipbuilding, roofing materials, electronics, dental products, pharmaceuticals, food products and many more. We too are also keen to increase the levels of tourists we receive and I believe having a liberalised visa arrangement would aide both our nations in boosting our tourism sectors.
Please contact me should you wish to have further discussions with regards to any of the points I have raised.

Announcement on behalf of the Council of Military Affairs
The United Socialist States of Southeastern Asia has invited all member states of the International Cooperation Council to set up joint military bases in Southeastern Asia, for training purposes.
Soldiers of the People's Army of Southeastern Asia will be training their ICC counterparts in efficient jungle warfare, and in return will be receiving training in using modern equipment.

On behalf of the Romanov Family, I am writing this letter to all heads of states and governments to inform all of you as to the arrangements for the Funeral of the Saintly & Royal Family of the Russian Empire. The members of the deceased consist of the Saintly & Royal Passion-Bearers, Tsar Nicholas II (18 May 1868 - 17 July 1918), Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna Romanova (6 June 1872 - 17 July 1918), Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna Romanova (15 November 1895 - 17 July 1918), Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna Romanova (10 June 1897 - 17 July 1918), Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna Romanova (26 June 1899 - 17 July 1918), Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova (June 18 1901 - 17 July 1918), Tsesarevich Alexei Nikolaevich Romanov (12 August 1904 - 17 July 1918).

The President of the Socialist Republic of Furstia extends his salutations, and expresses his respect to the Romanovan people in a period of profound reflexion, meaningfulness and solemnity for their nation.
Regrettably, previously scheduled commitments and necessities will not allow the presence of our Head of State in the upcoming ceremonies.
On behalf of the Government of the Socialist Republic of Furstia, I will be present at the funeral services, on the days 16 and 17 of the month of July, as a witness paying my respects.
With no other matters to attend to, I respectfully send my sincere regards to the People of Romanovskaya.
Pablo Ogoué, Ambassador of the Socialist Republic of Furstia in Vyborg
Dear, Дмитрий Дмитриевич Романов, Prince of the Principality of Romanovskaya
Our ambassador, José Manson will attend in good faith. We will also enable any of your citizens who may be in Anzoania to get to the pilgrimage in Romanovskaya. Under unfortunate circumstances, I will be unable to attend. However on my behalf, I will also send Vice President, Mrs Lucia L. Diaz, for a short period to attend the ceremony.
President Joan Kennedy, of the Federation of Anzoania.
President Emilie Stauffer has confirmed her attendance to the funeral. When asked her reasons for attending a funeral devoted to a symbol of tyranny not unlike the one the communists had just fought to overthrow, she stated the following in response:
What is it that truly divides us? Are differences in ideology truly worth sacrificing our ideas of what makes humanity?
Tsar Nicholas was more than an emperor, he was a father, he was a husband, he had a life that was stolen from him prematurely, an act which in any society would be seen with disgust, so why not in this case?
The death of the Russian tsar in 1918 was truly a tragedy and a symbol of the failure of communist movements worldwide. His death was a brutal, horrific and completely avoidable tragedy, one that was created in a moment of ideological weakness that allowed our movement to be hijacked and its message corrupted by violent, authoritarian tyrants. I cannot justify those killings, i cannot do anything but denounce those murders for the acts of horrific violence they were. I am attending to pay my respects and to show the world that we represent a new kind of socialism, a new kind of revolution. I am attending to repair the divisions of the past and admit the mistakes of the past, i am attending to make a promise that such a fate will never befall the young crown prince while i remain in office.
This is not a matter of poilitics. A man is dead, murdered alongside his whole family for naughty but to protect a failing regime of tyrants. We can do better than that, we must do better than that, and it is time we set that example. Thank you.
To: H.S.H. Prince Dmitri Dmitrievich Romanoff
The Representative for Foreign affairs, Comrade Muy Makara and the ambassador to Romanovskaya, Comrade Mily Bokeo have confirmed their attendance.
While, as principled Socialists, we condemn the Tsar and his regime in their systematic oppression of the Russian working class, this was not reason enough to warrant butchering children who's only perceived crime was to have the last name of Romanov. True Bolsheviks and followers of Lenin would not have committed such a heinous crime.
Our delegation will pay respects to the deceased on behalf of the working class of Southeastern Asia.

Green Initiative Sees Further Development
Following the recent legislation from Versienna regarding the strict ban on logging to preserve the national rainforests, numerous companies including the giant Corporate Alliance have all begun to invest in a popular timber alternative - bamboo. With bamboo growing exponentially faster and regularly yielding larger harvests, Eulumian companies across the nation are quickly hopping aboard the bamboo frenzy in order to get in on the rapidly growing market. Being seen as an eco-friendly alternative to the traditional timber industries, Versienna has given the green light to utilize designated already deforested tracts of land for bamboo production. Versienna has severely restricted the usage of pesticides and chemicals on these new bamboo farms, fearing the chemicals may seep into water tables below the grounds' surface or even begin to poison nearby ecosystems. Versienna has banned the usage of coal or petroleum burning machines in the process of bamboo harvesting; in addition to this, bamboo has been shown to absorb 12 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare per year, helping to reduce Eulumia's carbon footprint especially in the wake of previous slash and burn tactics that were previously used on Eulumian rainforests. The Eulumian government believes that the wide scale switch from traditional timber to bamboo will help to reduce the nation's carbon emissions and provide sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives at a faster rate, not having to sacrifice a portion of the Eulumian economy.
Furthermore, the Eulumian Senate has passsed legislation banning the use, import, and manufacturing of single use plastics and styrofoams. This includes but is not limited to: cutlery, water bottles, food wrappers, shopping bags, takeaway boxes, straws, fast food cups, etc. The nation will be collecting any stores of unused single-use plastics and styrofoams in order to recycle them and has mandated that all citizens and residents do the same with their own single-use plastics and styrofoams at home. Any business or individual found to be using any of the banned single-use plastics or styrofoams will be fined 250 Isteros upon their initial offense, 500 Isteros in conjunction to community service, and may face a 2,000 Istero fine with a month of jail time upon a third offense. Versienna is making this conscious shift away from using harmful products in order to help preserve the wildlife of the massive archipelago in light of massive amounts of pollution.
Privately owned and funded business operating out of Kuala Lumpur, Save the Seas, is beginning an initiative to reduce pollution along Eulumia's coasts and territorial waters. Save the Seas is operating in conjunction with Versienna in order to begin this massive endeavor, and has seen a massive volunteer base step up to the plate in order to help this initiative out, with several common themes among the words of those volunteering such as.
Volunteer 1: "This is OUR planet, this is OUR nation, this is OUR home. Why should we let ourselves live in filth?! We need to do something in order to change the way we're operating and save our planet or there will be no planet for future generations!"
Volunteer 2: "I am so happy that our government is backing up this initiative and is actually enforcing its laws. It's not all talk like previous governments were, they're out here with us working side by side to clean up our nation. I am proud to call Eulumia my home, molitva digernia!"
Versienna Applauds Puertos Deseados and Wanjin City
In accordance with the Eulumian initiative to promote a cleaner and greener world and future, the Eulumian capital is delighted to hear of the green initiatives taking place in both Puertos Deseados, Furstia, and Wanjin City, Lanfang-. Eulumia isn't alone in this fight to begin reducing their carbon footprint and implement laws in order to begin making this into a priority for national agendas. Versienna has declared Furstia and Lanfang to be environmental champions, helping Eulumia in pioneering the way into a greener future for all, helping to save the precious natural environments and ecosystems around the world.
The White House has stated that President Dawes and her husband will both attend the funeral and mass for the late Tsar and her family, victims of a most heinous crime done over 100 years ago. Hopefully, closure now can come to the living members of the House of Romanov.

Man Steals ice Cream truck While No One Is Watching
The Board of Punishments has reported that they had received calls about a man trying to commandeer an Ice Cream Truck and running away from Haishenwai Airport at 3AM this morning.
"Police arrived, weren't able to locate the suspect and did notice about three aircraft were damaged," said a reporter on the scene. “He didn't make it too far, remaining taxiing on the tarmac where he then collided into another plane.” The intruder was reportedly operating the truck fast enough that he damaged the landing gear of a Boeing aircraft and badly damaged the tail of a Shaanxi Y-7, with relatively minor damage to another aircraft.
The Board of Works was forced to delay flights for morning travellers for 4 hours, before resuming normal operations later in the morning. The airport authorities say the gates to the airport are always locked or otherwise monitored, and that they’re still investigating how the intruder got in. They are also scrutinizing footage from CCTV cameras, but said that the images were not clear enough to identify the man at the controls.
By the time officers reached the tarmac, the man was sitting in the right seat of the truck. When officers approached him, he again asked if they knew how to dispense ice cream from the machine. The man then jumped from the emergency exit of the truck, flashed the officers, and attempted to whip the officers with his belt. The man was subsequently detained.
After the man, identified as a 22-year-old, was secured. A search of his belongings yielded his ID, sunglasses, headphones, a 8-inch rubber díldo, two lighters, 8 chicken eggs, a dog's foot, a pocket knife and a laptop. A glass pipe was also found and tested positive for 18 different types of narcotics, a report showed, calling it a "world record".
