We would be most saddened if the conciliatory talks between Italy, Spain and France were to end before they even began. We can only re-affirm Germany's commitment to ensure peace in Europe, and invite the respective nations to come sit together at a table in Berlin.

The German Empire does not recognize a pathetic "government-in-exile", formed in Cuba by one failed former President.

The following dispatch is to be officially published in the Spanish People's Paper for the whole world to see:

You must understand how dire your situation is. An combined invasion by France and Italy is not something to be taken lightly. Your army will only be a token force compared to the military might of a crusade. Your experiment in Socialism will not be able to survive. I implore you, for the good of your own people, to back down on your persecution of the Church. For while God may forgive the crude heretic, an Italian sabre will not.

Deus Vult.


Italian Ambassador to Spain, Ennio Alberta Benito Napoli

We have recently made our demands for attendence to the conference clear, and this was part of dispatch we have recieved from the Italian Papists in response. They threaten us, to kill our nation and restore monarchy and superstition to the land, even branding the potential conflict as a crusade. We are utterly disgusted Italy would attempt to coerce us by threatening force and it has thus been made clear to us that both they, and the French, are not negotiating in good faith. It is with a heavy heart then that we must withdraw from talks in Germany. We wanted, and still hope for, peace but cannot allow people to be swallowed by the Franco-Italian menace or be bullied by their demands!

We condemn your use of such strong and violent rhetoric by Italy. As France will no doubt remember from the days of Napoleon I, an invasion of Spain is not to be taken lightly. Countless Italians will be slaughtered in Spanish fields, towns, and waters. For what? It is not as though we are killing the Catholics, we are merely dismantling the Church, which for far too long has oppressed the people of Spain. France during the Revolution dismantled the Catholic Church, with all the property not ever being returned due to a deal between the Vatican and Napoleon. That property remains privatized today. If France can shed Church functions, so too can Spain. We are a sovereign entity and demand to be treated as such and not bossed around with such extreme demands.

Diplomatic recognition (our demand) is nothing compared to the demands you make, which are at the core of why the Spanish Revolution was necessary. If you will have your crusade, so be it. I will not be the agressor, that will be the Pope and his minions in the Italian Senate.

I was willing to discuss slowing the persecutions, or even deporting those deemed to be unconvertable, but not at the expense of my sovereignity. If you wish to make such a large demand, which is nothing compared to diplomatic recognition, you must do it at the conference and we will be willing to consider it, otherwise no deal. The Italians have no right to dictate the actions of other nations.

This war will be of your making, not mine. Spain has nothing but good intentions to back up its actions. How about the Italy and the Church?

General Statement by Romania:

His Majesty, Tsar Nicholas I of Romania, denounces the use of meaningless words and propaganda. We call on both sides to speak openly and not so guardedly. The cowards in the governments using words that mean less than they are worth ought to be ashamed. We, the General Assembly of Romania, the Tsar of Romania, and all government thereof, defy all of you and order you to speak plainly and to say what you mean. We do not respect propagandists.

The Ottoman Empire wishes to make it explicitly clear: the policy of state atheism is as alien to us, as it's alien to France and Italy. What is, however, very important to us is respecting sovereignty of other nations.

We are also very disturbed that threats against Spain commended as we've just concluded a trade agreement with Madrid. Whether intentional or not, we can't regard it as a friendly act towards the Sublime Porta.

The Japanese government, again acting so far outside our area of influence only because of the severity of the situation, now believes that standard mediation is not possible at this time. The uncivilized threats and breaching of diplomatic protocol shows that neither side is willing to treat with the other as an equal. Perhaps mediation should begin before both sides agree to speak.

Japan suggests that both sides submit all of their complaints and demands to a third party without preconditions. Decisions as to reasonable preliminary steps before negotiations begin can be left to this trusted third party. Japan can think of no better third party than that well-known arbiter and friend of peace, the German Empire. If both sides trust the Germans to mediate, shouldn't they ALSO trust Germany to act objectively in deciding fair and balanced pre-negotiation requirements?

To the Cuban people,

I do not wish to bring you harm. This conflict can be resolved peacefully, I am giving you the power to do so. Two men, not even native sons, for peace. Help me resolve this issue, join the The Great American Republic, The United States of America. Your city counselors, your mayors, your governor, your traditions, your heritage, with our federal government; enjoy all the benefits of joining our republic. The Great American Republic is not your enemy, you will find we are very easy to work with.

Commander in Chief, The Great American Republic, the United States of America.

The recent developments in the Italo-Spanish conflict do very much sadden Germany, for if there is one thing we desire, it is peace and stability in Europe. But we applaud the attempts of conciliation of our friends, the Ottoman and Japanese Empires, and would be very pleased if the road to talks as proposed by the Japanese Empire were to be followed.

I can thus only invite both sides to send me their demands ahead of the peace talks, and we shall try to find the best workable solution and compromise for both sides.

The Pope and the Senate acquiesce to the call for a third party mediator in the form of Germany. We do this entirely in the interest of the Spanish people who should be damned for the foolish actions of their tyrannical"government".

Any alien associated with a so-called "government-in-exile" in Cuba shall be placed under interment if identified on the Ottoman soil.

Once again, we appeal to all sides to come to the table without preconditions. There is no harm in simply hearing out the opposite side. By simply agreeing to try you're conceding nothing.

It is the opinion as the Commander in Chief of the Great American Republic, The United States of America, that the Franco-Italian alliance and the Spanish socialist movement don't want peace nor do they want shared economic prosperity. Perhaps, those of us that do, should impose strict trade tariffs or cease all trade on the juvenile governments until they can enter talks as adults. Or perhaps not. Just a thought.

In order to demonstrate out commitment to peace and this mediation we will send in our demands regardless of whether the other powers are participating or not. We desire nothng but peace, as we have argued from the begining.

We think it's crystal clear which side began agressive moves.

If the unfortunate happens, history will record that the Ottoman Empire wanted, without having any particular interests at stake, and attempted to secure peace.
