Balkan Mutual Defense Treaty


Be it resolved,

1. The Republic of Turkey condemns recent aggression by the Kingdom of Hungary against its neighboring states, destabilizing peace in Europe and potentially abroad.

2. To ensure that the ongoing conflict in the Balkans can be swiftly resolved, the Republic of Turkey is distributing a targeted financial and military aid package to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and the Czechoslovak Republic.

3. Yugoslavia shall be the beneficiary of firearms, artillery, ammunition, missiles, protective gear, and other items which are regarded as necessary in the battlefield. Aid shall be issued in monthly increments over the next year following ratification of this treaty, or until the conflict is formally deemed as resolved should this occur prior to all aid being distributed.

4. Czechoslovakia shall receive a lump sum of $25 million in the form of a non-interest-payable loan. These aid funds are issued with the purpose of providing immediate liquidity for the Czechoslovakian government to finance military operations in conjunction with regular duties of the state. Payment terms are delayed until following the resolution of the Hungarian conflict.

5. The signatories acknowledge the sensitive geopolitical climate which Europe is currently under. To provide ample security for the respective nations’ people, Turkey, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and Romania agree to form a mutual defense pact. This pact stipulates that all aforementioned nations shall provide military assistance to each other in the event of an outside nation-state posing acts of aggression or otherwise requiring imminent self-defense measures to be implemented by armed forces.

6. The mutual defense pact is effective indefinitely until all signatories jointly authorize new terms and conditions. Aid measures presented in this treaty are subject to possible renewal and/or review as warranted.

The Turkish government is dismayed to learn of the move by the United States to cut diplomatic ties and implement sanctions. it is evident that current American leadership would rather antagonize its allies in the Balkans and beyond when faced with a rogue state threatening continental stability.

The Balkan Mutual Defense Treaty was drafted by our top officials with the collaboration of other involved states to solve the Hungarian dilemma. It is in the interest of the global community that this war is swiftly resolved before other opportunistic actors decide further bloodshed is on their agenda. In the absence of true leadership from the West, the world order requires new direction. Turkey shall continue to engage in acts such as this as a leader unifying Europe and the Orient.

Following a productive meeting in Sevastopol, Comrade Stalin and Turkish President Kemal Ataturk have agreed to release the following Joint Statement on the Conflict in Eastern Europe:

Quote
The people and governments of the Soviet Union and Republic of Turkey stand in solidarity with the nations of the Balkans against the meddling of Italy, and unequivocally condemn the needless escalation that is the Italian naval blockade.

The nations of Czechoslovakia and Romania are undertaking pre-emptive operations to ensure their security against the expansionist Horthy, who would have undoubtedly attempted to invade both countries himself to restore the empire he rambles so nostalgically about.

The Soviet Union and Republic of Turkey will do what must be done to ensure the security of the Balkan states against external interference.

Eurasian Alliance Treaty


Be it resolved:

1. This treaty is conducted between the following founding member states: the Republic of Turkey, the Imperial State of Iran, the Kingdom of Iraq, and the Kingdom of Afghanistan. The entity that shall be created as a result of this treaty is henceforth referred to as the Eurasian Alliance.

2. The Eurasian Alliance is a binding organization with the objective of instituting peaceful relations and economic prosperity among nations spanning Europe and Asia.

3. Upon membership to the Alliance, signatories agree that access to trade channels shall undergo liberalization. Tariff rates for nonessential commodities shall have a cap of fifteen percent; for items considered essential or pertaining to national security, tariffs shall be no more than twenty-five percent.

4. Member states agree that an additional three percent of their budgets over the next ten fiscal years upon ratification shall be devoted to transportation for interorganizational commerce. These funds will be allocated to the development, expansion, and maintenance of infrastructure including but not limited to roads, highways, railroads, airport terminals, railways, pipelines, and maritime systems. Following ten years, members agree for a permanent one percent increase in transportation budgets going forward. This continual project shall be known as the New Silk Road.

5. This treaty forms a mutual defense pact between all signatories wherein they agree to provide military assistance to one another in any instance where a member state is severely threatened, attacked, or in imminent range of being attacked by another nation. States under the Alliance will devote an additional one percent annually to their defense budgets for bearing increased responsibilities.

6. Militaries of each member state shall undergo greater integration to aim for close cooperation during times of war or strenuous geopolitical events. This shall be achieved through the formation of the Eurasian Affairs Council, comprising of defense ministers, leading generals, or other specially appointed representatives from each member state. The Council shall establish permanent residence in Ankara and possesses authority in military and intelligence affairs during times when the Eurasian Alliance's full capabilities are deemed necessary. Council members from each nation are of equal representation and approve decisions by majority vote. Heads of state possess veto power for decisions made by the Council that pertain to their nation's territory or nearby vicinity.

7. Under direction of the Eurasian Affairs Council, the armed forces for each member state shall receive specialized cross-training with forces from other countries to both enhance cultural understanding and better work in conjunction during operations.

8. Subsequent nations which ratify this treaty and join the Eurasian Alliance are subject to the same terms outlined earlier. Members possess veto power for future applicants that are deemed undesirable or otherwise unqualified for membership.

The Republic of Turkey unequivocally condemns the atrocities committed in Manchukuo and stands in solidarity with the Chinese people. Accountability must be held against the Empire of Japan for these deeds against humanity.

Statement from President Kemal


Fellow Turks and all those listening around the world,

The latest reports from Yugoslavia amount to the gravest sign yet that regular order in Europe is no longer. Italy and Yugoslavia are engulfed in war, which shall only destabilize our region despite the proclamations of Duce Mussolini should this continue. The Republic of Turkey fundamentally condemns this invasion and implores Italian leadership to reverse course immediately. We shall send a reminder that our government is currently bound to the Balkan Mutual Defense Treaty should they continue further and will honor our pledge to maintain peace as necessary. Nonetheless, we shall attempt a fair resolution in good faith before war engulfs us all.

We have also seen discontent closer to our borders from the Hellenic Republic. The Greek people are being subjected to coup attempts and illegitimate elections which are prompting the opening of old wounds. All of these developments I have addressed to you tonight risk multiple nations facing regime collapse, refugees fleeing to all corners of Europe, as well as the deaths and mutilations of countless souls. In the interest of our national security, along with the whole of Europe in mind, the Republic of Turkey shall reclaim full control of the Turkish Straits by suspension of the Treaty of Lausanne.

This is not an act of aggression towards any nation, nor is this a unilateral decision made in haste as certain nations will attempt to claim. On the contrary, this has been an effort years in the making with the mutual support and understanding of many great powers. We profoundly thank their leaders and their people for assisting Turkey with realizing self-determination as any nation deserves. Although the Treaty of Lausanne was earnestly conducted and provided the necessary peace for its time, it unfortunately can no longer stand to the same effect today. Over the coming years, we hope to formally renegotiate Lausanne with the British, French, and other signatories to forge a new contract for our times.

The Turkish nation can confidently boast to have a proud people. We are fiercely independent and will defend our soil to our last breath. The Turks are also a fair and forgiving people who will see to it that future generations can live their full potential under peace and prosperity. Our proclamation tonight bears the markings of all these traits. Turkey is committed to the freedom and well-being of people within and beyond our borders. This administration shall continue our program of peace at home and peace in the world.

The Republic of Turkey will be sending a delegation to the Berlin Olympics. President Atatürk will not be attending in-person, although Prime Minister Ismet Inonu shall take his place in leading the Turkish delegation at the ceremony. Atatürk communicated to Olympic players prior to the event that "the rich Turkish spirit lives in each and every one of you, and this will shine through in Berlin this year."

The Republic of Turkey is horrified at the reported developments in Sarajevo. A line has been crossed with the level of civilian harm deliberately inflicted from Yugoslav forces. Turkey shall lead the world in proudly accepting Bosniak refugees and supporting all possible avenues for refugees to survive. We call upon all of Europe and the global community to join Turkey on this moral calling. Now is the time to ensure the sanctity of life to the powerless.

ANNOUNCEMENT!

I am pleased to report that we have come to an agreement with Yugoslavia for a one-month humanitarian ceasefire. Bulgaria is committed to ensuring the safety of the Bosniak people, and we hope this action will allow refugees from the conflict in Bosnia to receive safe haven in friendly countries. We will work with our friends in Turkey and abroad to assist refugees from Bosnia in any way possible, including transport across the Tsardom, humanitarian and medical aid, and peaceful assimilation efforts.

Quote
The Tsardom of Bulgaria and the Kingdom of Yugoslavia hereby agree to a one month humanitarian ceasefire to allow for the peaceful evacuation of Bosnian refugees to Bulgarian territory. The parties to this agreement forswear offensive action against the other for the duration of this ceasefire.

i) Current front lines will be maintained during the ceasefire.

ii) Bulgaria will allow the delivery of humanitarian shipments to the city of Skopje, however, military shipments will not be permitted to enter the city. Bulgarian customs officials will reserve the right to inspect shipments to ensure compliance. Yugoslavian officials in Skopje will also pledge to protect the wellbeing of the civilians of Skopje, and will ensure humanitarian shipments designated for civilian use are appropriated correctly.

iii) The city of Dimitrovgrad, and Nova Bardo on the Bulgarian side will serve as the primary transfer point for Bosnian refugees out of Yugoslavia. Yugoslavian, Bulgarian, and Turkish customs officials will work in tandem to process these refugees, and Bulgaria will assume responsibility for travel once they cross into Bulgarian-held territory.

x Tsar Boris III

X President Kemal Atatürk, Republic of Turkey

Turkey hails this development and shall act as an intermediary ensuring that peace and order persists for a noble cause during this ceasefire.

Effective immediately, the Eurasian Alliance is implementing a total embargo against the United Kingdom on all oil and petroleum products from the Middle East. This shall be effective until Britain recognizes our basic sovereignty in economic destiny and withdraws forces from our territory for a peaceful resolution. As we have attempted numerous times prior, we always seek peace first and foremost but we shall be unafraid to defend our people.
