President Darcness Proposes Alliance with United Kingdom
By Deepest House

(Europeia – May 20, 2017) – President Darcness announced the Treaty of Westminster to the region in a joint statement with the United Kingdom in a declaration from the Goldenblock on May 19. President Darcness, Minister of Foreign Affairs Writinglegend, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Akillian Talleyrand, and Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom George Windsor signed the joint statement. The legislative bodies of both regions must ratify the treaty for it to take effect.

Treaty of Westminster builds on the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) signed by the two regions in June 2016. SOFAs are often one of the first formal documents signed between Europeia and its partners, as a sign of the common interests and a growing relationship between the signatory regions.

“This treaty showcases the strength of cooperation between Europeia and the United Kingdom,” the statement read. “Throughout the past year, our regions have consistently collaborated militarily, culturally, and diplomatically.”

The 2016 SOFA provided an initial framework for military cooperation between the two regions. The Treaty of Westminster builds on those initial steps and broadens the scope of cooperation between Europeia and the United Kingdom. “To declare this friendship shows the entirety of Gameplay that an allied front militarily, politically, and culturally can be effective weapons against the forces of hatred, toxicity, and division,” the statement read. The statement went on to explain that while a year had passed since the SOFA, the time spent the signing of the SOFA has resulted in a stronger relationship between the regions at the time of the announcement.

In addition to the supplementary military requirements the treaty provides over the previous SOFA, the Treaty of Westminster also provides additional diplomatic, cultural, and intelligence provisions that bolster the relationship between the two regions. Among these provisions are that the regions will maintain embassies in its partner region, host a cultural festival, and share certain intelligence. These provisions bring the two regions together into a formal military and diplomatic alliance.

Europeia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Writinglegend played a critical role in the negotiation and announcement of the Treaty of Westminster. “It was a pleasure to work with our allies in the United Kingdom on this Treaty, and I look forward to a prosperous future for our relationship,” the minister said after the president announced the treaty. “This is a great day for our Republic.”

Writinglegend can count the Treaty of Westminster as his second major accomplishment this term. Previously, the foreign minister announced significant changes to the ambassadorial system, in both structure and operations, in his first major move this term.

The announcement of the treaty was met with support by the rank and file within Europeia. “May a never-dying friendship between our two regions come out of this,” Ervald excitedly proclaimed following the announcement. Pyntuma suggested that the region host a large welcoming party for Europeia’s new allies.

President Darcness presented the treaty to the Senate shortly before publishing the joint statement from Goldenblock. “Today I stand before you today to bring the culmination of a year's worth of forward diplomatic progress between Europeia and the United Kingdom, this Treaty of Westminster,” the president said as he addressed the Senate.

It is unlikely that the Senate will reject the treaty, as the current senators have expressed initial support. “I see no problems with this and have no questions,” Senator Drexlore Greyjoy said. “[United Kingdom] is an excellent ally to have and strengthening our ties with them is something that will be beneficial to both of our regions.”

There is currently no vote scheduled for the treaty in the Senate, which is also considering the reconfirmation of the director of the Europeian Intelligence Agency.
