This is my new office for the Department of External Affairs.  This is specifically my governmental office.  I will also be using a second public office.  Thank you for your attention.

DOEA COMMUNIQUE

Atlasia would like to issue a statement issuing their concern over Afghan President Hamid Karzai's recent pardon of five heroin traffikers.  It has come to light that at least one is related to a member of his campaign staff.

However we would like to congratulate the Afghan Government's recent cutting of a clause in their marriage law that would seem to legalize marital rape.  This is a crucial step forward for human rights in the nation.


___________________________________________________________________________

The Republic of Atlasia would like to state it's support for the return to power of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya.  We are of the opinion that any Democratically elected leader should retain their position unless it is the will of the people that they be voted from office.  We do not take the leaders' ideology into the idea at all.

___________________________________________________________________________

The DOEA would also like to express our worries over the recent rise of an Al Qaeda affiliate in various nations in Northern Africa.  Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb as the group calls themselves is based in Algeria and has recently been kidnapping and ransoming westerners while also hitting government patrols, resulting in more than a dozen deaths.  They have even claimed to have killed a man from our nation.  All Atlasians traveling to any North African country are being told to cancel travel plans to the region and if that is not possible, to be very careful while there.

Under the recent Amendment to the LGBT Trade Act the following Free Trade Agreements are declared null and void until such time as the nations within the agreements agree to follow it's provisions.

F.L. 17-1: Atlasian-Kuwait Free Trade Act
F.L. 13-12: Atlasian-Bahrain Free Trade Act
F.L. 13-11: Atlasian-Morocco Free Trade Act
F.L. 13-10: Atlasian-Singapore Free Trade Act

As well are the following segments of the following free trade agreements.

DOEA Communique

The Republic of Atlasia wishes to offer our condolences to Mexico after the recent violent murders of twelve federal officials by the La Familia drug cartel in the Mexican state of Michoacan, which has been a center of the current President's crackdown on organized crime.

Initial reports indicated the victims were likely killed over the weekend, when federal agents arrested Arnoldo Rueda Medina, who is suspected of being chief of operations of the Michoacan-based La Familia cartel. 

Atlasia as already stated offers its condolences and also hopes that we can provide some sort of aid to the difficult times our neighbor is experiencing.


___________________________________________________________________________

We would meanwhile like to congratulate Nigeria on the recent ceasefire between the federal government and the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta rebel group.  We hope that this ceasefire will last, though we are concerned over the attempt to disrupt it after only 12 hours of the ceasefire.

What sort of actions and assistance does the SoEA believe is appropriate for Atlasia to take to assist our southern neighbor in combating the organized crime and drug groups so as to prevent such horrific events from continuing to occur in Mexico, as well as from spreading North.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I think so.

Semi-related: We should scrap all GM decisions made before Brandon. It would make things a lot easier.

As of this moment I am not entirely sure of what sort of actions would be called for other than a crackdown on border-crossings when it comes to drug runners considering alot of their harder products are mostly desired here in our nation.  I will speak to the President if he desires further measures than that and will of course be open minded to any Mexican proposals as well.

The DOEA will not offer it's support to any furthur free trade agreements, however should they pass I will not impede their being enacted so long as the don't violate the LGBT Trade Act.  Also I would like to encourage as much fairness in trade deals as possible by including clauses wherein we won't have FTAs unless another country reciprocates.  It is only proper and fair.

Aren't FTAs agreements with another country, indicating reciprocity? It's not a unilateral announcement. It is an agreement among nations. That's why we don't do a "general free trade resolution," but individual FTAs with nations on a case by case basis.

They are called Free Trade AGREEMENTS but we can not determine ourselves whether these nations would accept them or not.  I think for that to take effect we'd need someone like the GM to act as those we are engaged in negotiations with.  Otherwise my interpretation is that we are simply lifting trade barriers unilaterally.
