Having finally stepped off the plane, after a somewhat of an exhausted delay, The Prime Minister with his entourage in tow dismounted from their respective vehicles and proceeded to walk into the foyer of Diethnés Tower.
Suddenly, the Prime Minister stops the murder of ministers, "Now, apart from the obvious, I'm expecting them nit pick and basically wanting a rewrite of our draft. Is there anything that we should bring up?"
"Sir!" - Peter pipes up, "Apart from the UK delegation, do you think we can spruik the idea of establishing an NESTO wide JOTHRN network?"
"Peter! Now's not the time" - Jock said scornfully at Peter, "This is a meeting to establish a Treaty Organisation, not for you to push your agenda of expanding your precious RADAR network around the f**king globe."
Standing there, shaking his head at the naïvity of the Minister for Foreign Affairs. General Perry-Marsh breaks protocol and steps in to defend the Minister of Defence. "In defence of the Defence Minister, Sir, expanding JOTHRN within our partners is not at all about the Minister expanding his 'precious RADAR network' as you so elequontly put it."
"Insolent bastard..." - Jock mumbles under his breath while the Chief continues.
"If we look at further establishing JOTHRN across the partner nations, we will see an increased ability to provide early warning and intelligence gathering across the whole organisation. The treaty isn't just about trade or mutual benefit, it's also about Mutual Defence. If the other partners agree, we will be basically handing them the capability, which has a number of benefits to the nation. We either manufacture the components back in Gallambria, OR we work agreements with the respective partners and manufacture there, either way, we're creating jobs. Not only would we create jobs, we would start this chain reaction of increased indigenous defence development and manufacturing. Either way, I think we should consult the other partners."
"Thank you General" - Peter said.
The Prime Minister, abit infuriated with Jock's stubborness gathered the group together and starts to walk into the building.
