MOREAU AND XI MEET IN KYNNPORT
Following the agreement reached in Lalkot, the two leaders met for an emergency summit in Alecburgh to officially establish terms to calm the Jinchon Sea crisis

KYNNPORT - As the governments off numerous nations scrambled to react appropriately to the brewing crisis in the Jinchon Sea, delegates from Zamastan and De Yuan met in secret at the behest of Haduastani Prime Minister Sartaj Bali in Lalkot. There, Secretary of State Brecken Gray and his counterpart Foreign Minister Mao Xieren agreed to a series of terms which has since seen the military forces of their nations return to a stalemate. In determination of continuing the process of peace-seeking, they agreed to a bilateral summit with the heads of state. The result was today's meeting between President Atticus Moreau and President Xi Jingyi in the Alecburghish capital of Kynnport, where they laid out additional agreements to the process of actively demilitarizing the seas off west Ausiana.
The meeting stands in stark contrast to the months of tensions, specifically in the past week which has seen hundreds of sailors and innocent civilians killed in the crossfire of Yuaneze aggression. Container vessels, naval ships on patrol, and a passenger airliner are among the casualties which now rest at the bottom of the Jinchon Sea and Sancheon Gulf, all of which has been met with strict international condemnation and the seizures of dozens of Yuaneze vessels in ports around the globe. Many outlets and governments prepared for the outbreak of a conflict, but Zamastanian authorities are vowing that will not happen.
"We are committed to ensuring that the West Ausianan straits remain clear of conflict and that nothing threatens the global maritime economic importance of the region," Secretary of State Gray said during the summit in Kynnport. "We will always defend our interests and the safety of Gangkou, but never will we intentionally seek out conflict with Yuan. Today's summit is an important step in healing the divides we've seen, and I commend the Yuaneze delegation for agreeing to diplomatic pursuit."
President Moreau and Xi arrived in Kynnport on Sunday morning at separate times, eventually shaking hands in the lobby of the National Theatre and Opera of Kynnport before residing themselves for their third bilateral summit together. They neglected to hold a joint press conference, but President Moreau spoke to journalists several hours after the meeting to overview some of the agreements reached.
"President Xi and I have committed to a number of agreements aimed at ceasing the continued chaos," Moreau said, "and I can definitively say that these steps will ensure at least a semblance of resolve."
Among the agreements was the commitment to cease all military drills in the international waters off Ausiana. While each nation is still permitted to conduct drills as they see fit within their own territorial waters, Yuan and the rest of the Shanghan Cooperation Alliance must restrict their naval movements to purely transitional and cannot engage in live-fire exercises anywhere outside the international bounds of maritime control. Such a breach is what most experts consider the cause of last week's dramatic tensions, as Yuaneze live-fire exercises were held in close proximity to and even within Gangkou's waters.
Secondly, Yuaneze air force cannot enter Gangkou airspace under any means. Breaches of Gangkou's airspace in the past has been considered one of Yuan's main attempts to delegitimize Zamastanian control of the island, and President Xi himself has asserted that the island's true sovereignty lies under Yuaneze authority. As such, flybys have become a regular occurence. The governor of Gangkou, Wan Yahui Croston, has repeatedly stated that the breaches of Yuaneze fighter jets and bombers constitutes the "most direct threat and opposition to our island's safety." Yuaneze naval vessels have also nearly all returned to their home ports, a significant concession that the Yuaneze government has already protested to some degree but have maintained is strategic in order to refocus their military structure in the region.
Many have stated the agreements reached in Lalkot paint the Yuaneze concessions as immense in comparison to what the Zamastanians were forced to comply with, as Zamastanian naval forces do not regularly conduct exercises in the Jinchon or Sancheon seas. As freedom of navigation is still in effect, the 3rd fleet under the ZMS Dubois nuclear aircraft carrier will still be free to transit to and from their homeport in Gangkou however it is deemed neccesary under naval doctrine. However, some agreements reached by the accords in Kynnport are still a deal which Zamastanian officials were reluctant to.
For one, the Zamastanian government has to release freezes on Yuaneze economic assets to which they placed sanctions on. While Yuan will have to abide in a similar fashion, some of the authorities in the Zamastanian state department have expressed their discontent over the concessions, with one anonymous official saying that it "only emboldens the Yuaneze to get away with more in the future. If they deem that economic sanctions are too crippling, they can lash out with their military, sink innocent ships, shoot down airliners, and then negotiate for easier terms in return for what essentially amounts to a check."
SEVERE WINDS LEAVES 4 DEAD AND MILLIONS WITHOUT POWER IN PAHL
Several tornados and wind gusts caused widespread destruction in central Pahl.
WEATHER CORRESPONDANT: Ryan Cesterne(@CesterneTofino)
ALANIS - Nearly 1,900,000 homes in central Zamastan were left without power on Saturday after a severe storm hit the province of Pahl. Four people were killed by falling trees and a woman died when a boat capsized in the Blackfoot River. Wind gusts reached 82 mph (132km/h) during the storm, according to the Weather Service. Power company Hydro One, which covers Pahl, said it would take several days to reconnect every home. Meanwhile, the company also said 550,000 homes there lost power, with nearly 1,400,000 still suffering outages as of 10:00 AM on Sunday. The powerful thunderstorm, which lasted more than two hours, felled many trees, disrupted traffic, damaged homes and saw emergency services inundated with calls for help.
Pictures on social media show firefighters and utility workers trying to untangle downed powerlines and poles that are lying over cars on a road in Alanis. The town of Anbridge, about an hour north of Emerald, has declared a state of emergency after the storm left "significant damage in its wake", a statement said. Provincial Police said a 59-year-old man was killed when a tree was uprooted on a golf course in an Alanis suburb. East of the city, local media reported that a 44-year-old man was killed in another tree fall. One person died and two others were injured by an uprooted tree at a campsite about 60 miles (100km) from Alanis, and a woman in her 70s was killed while out walking in the suburb of Brampton, in the Greater Emerald area. A 51-year-old woman also drowned when a boat overturned in the Blackfoot River, which runs through the province.

Well, I do have two questions;
Is the wiki user-generated? if so, how can I make and edit pages for my nation (once I'm accepted)
Is my nation able to expand (into unclaimed land) in the future?
I'd recommend asking questions in the Discord. The regional message board here is mostly filled with RP.
The wiki (https://iiwiki.us/wiki/) is user-generated, and if you make an account, you will be able to make pages through a text box on the main page.
As for expansion, that's a question for the staff - again, probably ask on the Discord.

James Etémé raises his fist in victory after winning the emergency referendum.
James Etémé Elected President in Rushed Election
James Etémé and his running mate Gathi Ehagua have won Apatonia's rushed referendum to install a new government, defeating opposition leader Kimbu Mejo'o. Etémé was backed by former-President Mlamuli Ngotsha, who conceded he would not run in late April, and threw his endorsement to Etémé. Mejo'o was backed by interim-President Nenge Pupina. With Mr Etémé's election victory and upcoming inauguration, Etémé leads the Apatonia First coalition, which comprises more than 10 political parties including his own New Democracy Party.
"This is a historic day for our nation as we seek to heal the wounds of this bloody period of violence," Etémé said in his victory speech. "We will realign our nation with the values of freedom and democracy, commit to our people, and align with our neighbors and seek to expand our allies."
The election was a sweep for Etémé, who recorded more than 68% of the popular vote compared to Mejo'o's nearest percentage of 23%.
Etémé is the first President elected since Mlamuli Ngotsha was sworn in 2018. Normally, elections would have occurred in April, but they were postponed by the interim government due to security concerns from the raging civil war. Etémé will now face the difficulty of working with any remaining politicians with sentiments towards the brief regime of Michel Lukonde, who is in exile in Elastan.
Additionally, Etémé will need to deal with a present security threat as fighting and sporadic clashes still continue in some parts of the country, mostly in the far east of Lundia province. The Unified Sera Government and forces loyal to the current Apatonian government are still conducting operations against the Lundia Defense Forces, who announced they would continue to oppose the government in Sifondo.
James Etémé served as the Interior Minister under Mlamuli, and he was able to escape the purge following Lukonde's takeover by joining rebel forces in the holdout city of Wabi. He, alongside with interim-President Pupina, were instrumental in the joining with Seran forces and the recapture of Sifondo.

Alcarresean president, Akkin Gunaydin, announced that the Alcarres Navy had purchased two Percilius-class destroyers from Zamastan in the pursuit of a sweeping modernization program underway within the armed forces. The Percilius-class destroyer is a Zamastanian guided missile destroyer which serve as multi-mission medium surface ships capable of sustained performance in anti-air, anti-submarine, anti-ship, and offensive strike operations. Like cruisers, guided missile destroyers are primarily focused on surface strikes using the FLAMs (Firebird land attack missile) and fleet defense through missile systems.
Above: A Percilius-class destroyer purchased by the Alcarresean navy
The two destroyers purchased by the Alcarres government have been renamed the ANP Santo Candido and the ANP Aldo Pantano. Largely relegated to a participant in peacekeeping and counter-piracy operations, the Alcarres navy is moderately sized, but Gunaydin has long sought to expand it to a significant player in the Albarine Sea. This comes as Gunaydin has expressed open consideration for a possible application to the Western Euronia Defense Alliance (WEDA) amidst rising tensions internationally.
The Alcarres Army, Navy, and Air Force collectively form the Alcarres Armed Forces, under the command of the Supreme Defence Council, presided over by the President of Alcarres. Since 2005, military service is voluntary. In 2010, the Alcarres military had 293,202 personnel on active duty. The Alcarres Army is the national ground defence force, numbering 109,703 in 2008. Its best-known combat vehicles are the Dardo infantry fighting vehicle, the Centauro tank destroyer and the Ariete tank, and among its aircraft the Mangusta attack helicopter, in the last years deployed in C.A.M.D.A. and C.C.A. missions. It also has at its disposal many Leopard 1 and M113 armoured vehicles. The Alcarres Air Force in 2008 had a strength of 43,882 and operated 585 aircraft, including 219 combat jets and 114 helicopters. A transport capability is guaranteed by a fleet of 27 C-130Js and C-27J Spartan. The Alcarres Navy in 2008 had 35,200 active personnel with 85 commissioned ships and 123 aircraft. It is a blue-water navy. In modern times the Alcarres Navy, being a member of the C.C.A. and C.A.M.D.A., has taken part in many coalition peacekeeping operations around the world.
The Kynnport Press: The Real Voice of Alecburgh, International Edition. May 21, 2022
Less than seventy-two hours ago, the Royal Capital of Alecburgh, Kynnport, hosted a meeting between the warring states of Zamastan and Yuan. Due to the importance of secrecy for the meeting, only high members of the Parliament and the Royal Committees knew about it. The Royal Office issued a statement that a prestigious meeting between Royal Family members to deter any news outlets from going on Opera Road where the meeting was being held. Approximately at 11:25 am; Zamastan's President Moreau and his fellow delegates arrived at the site of the meeting, the National Theatre and Opera of Kynnport. Nearly twenty minutes later, Yuan's opposite leader President Xi and his delegates arrived at the NTOK.
Due to the secrecy of the meeting, only Alecburghish Prime Minister Pacifica Champlain-Kourtney was present as Her Majesty Diana was busy with royal duties and Deputy-Prime Minister was refused entry due to severe bias in the situation towards Zamastan and their sovereignty of Gangkou.
Only after Zamastan and Yuan's news outlets shared the news of the meeting did the Alecburghish Government release information about it in fear that an early release would be dangerous for the nation and its security. With the knowledge of the meeting, Prime Minister CK has gained a wave of applause and appreciation for such a stable meeting between the two countries being held in our own country. Many at the Press, as well as random citizens we met on the street agreed that the meeting was a tremendous event in our history.
"They are acknowledging that Alecburgh is a state of importance in the world. I mean just look... they could've chosen anywhere else in the world, but they chose our state!' said Alecburghish citizen D'Von Jacobs, 'The d*mn world has been throwing shade at us ever since that stupid civil war, but they've finally woke up and realized that we're a place of harmony and respect. I didn't even vote for C.K., but I gotta admit that she did a d*mn good job on this sh*t. I didn't give her enough credit... I might just vote for her come the next election at this rate. She's way better than Creed was."
Mr. Jacobs' opinion was almost unanimous amongst everyone that the Press met, and this morning Prime Minister Champlain-Kourtney had an exclusive interview with the Kynnport Press.
"I believe this is just the beginning to hopefully a new start for Alecburgh. We've hit the reset button on a badly managed project so to speak... I had praise from even some of my opposing legislatures, and just before I came in here I had a call from former-Prime Minister Benjamin Warren giving me straight credit for it. I hope that we can see that this triumph of a meeting can lead us in a brilliant direction of the future for Alecburgh, and Isla de Rodríguez. Starting from today, we are open to have new relations."
Queen Diana Meets with Rodrígueza Separatist Leader, Nidía Vázquéz in Nuevo Sanchéz.
Her Majesty, Diana the I of Killingly had an unscheduled departure from Queen Chelsea Hart Memorial International Airport [QCI] yesterday as Rodrígueza counterpart of the Kynnport Press, the Diario Sanchéz took over on the reporting. We do warn that the Diario Sanchéz is strongly pro-Rodrígueza Independence and against the monarchy in every way possible, so understand that these are not the words of the Press.
Translated from Spanish:
De Yuan Naval Ship Genchau and her Crew Reportedly to Released by the Alecburghish Government in Coming Days.
Days ago, as the nations of Yuan and Zamastan began a conflict in the Jinchon Sea based on tensions surrounding Gangkou and other severed ties that led to strong turmoil, Yuan began to send craft across the Toyana Sea region and beyond on unknown reasons and trips. During this time, the Alecburghish Navy alongside the Rodrígueza Special Aquatic Craft Service [RSACS] detained the Yuaneze ship Genchau south of Isla de Rodríguez. Since then, the ship and her crew have been detained at Alecburghish Naval Base, Fort Atlattia. Even after the signing of peace between the two nations in the capital of Kynnport, the Alecburghish Navy had been detaining the ship and crew for the sake of 'keeping law in check'. This changed this morning as the Navy announced that they would be giving a release to the ship and the men and women on it, within the next four days.
"They came into our waters unannounced, and not allowed. They are deemed criminals in our eyes, some may call them terrorists. Yet, we have had this situation taken out of our hands. Prime Minister Champlain-Kourtney has urged us to reconsider a prolonged detainment, and due to this, the Genchau and her crew will be released by Friday. We hope Yuan sees this as good faith, and that they are willing to continue relations with us." Stated a spokeman for the Alecburghish Navy.
Although it has been mere hours since the announcement, a great deal of reactions have been made upon it. While most have supported Prime Minister Pacifica Champlain-Kourtney with this decision so that Alecburgh can set itself in a stronger position on the world stage through peace, a large minority have disagreed with the Prime Minister and believe that the detainment of the Genchau should continue for longer, and that the crew of the ship should even stand trial in Alecburghish courts for many different crimes including 'terrorism' and 'conspiracy' charges. Although the Prime Minister has acknowledged these opposite reactions, she stated that her own opinion and order will be steadfast for the sake of 'Alecburgh's future'.
Sulaiman and Xi meet in Zalluabed
Sulaiman meets with President Xi of Yuan in Zakaraban.
RHAGA - President Akram Sulaiman met with De Yuaneze President Xi Jingyi in an unannounced summit in the Zalluabedi capital of Zakaraban on Tuesday, mirroring the surprise summit held between Xi and Sulaiman's Zamastanian counterpart Moreau. The meeting, according to Minister of Foreign Affairs Naadir al-Shaikh, is meant to be a continuation of efforts by WEDA members to deescalate the tensions in West Ausiana by appealing to the Yuaneze leadership directly. Following on the heels of a meeting in Alecburgh between Moreau and Xi, Sulaiman and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs began pursuing a policy of negotiation.
Emmiria had sent multiple naval vessels to join Zamastanian forces near Gangkou last week as the crisis in the Jinchon and Sancheon waterways intensified. Yuan sank numerous international shipping vessels, a Kalean naval boat, and shot down a Parabocan commercial airliner. In total, more than 300 people died in the span of four days, all of whom were innocent. Sulaiman stated at the time, and still reiterated during the summit in Zakaraban, that the Emmirian government stood completely aligned with Zamastan and that the summit was meant as a show of good faith in the wake of Yuan's agreement to follow a demilitarization period to quell the tensions.
"While we strongly appreciate President Xi's decision to stand down his navy and seek a more restrained and approachable diplomatic effort," Sulaiman said, "we still want to ensure that this peace lasts. Safe seas off Ausiana benefit not only Yuan but the entire world. Freedom of navigation, global maritime commerce, and the importance of the economy in the region is incredibly vital, and all sides must respect this reality."
