The Foreign and Commonwealth Office have been monitoring the situation in Omnibus, and with the recent outbreak of the flu, the FCO have no choice but to issue a travel warning for all UK citizens. We strongly advise against the travel to Omnibus at this time, citing dangers that include political instability and the outbreak of a communicable disease that has been deemed incurable by the authorities in Omnibus. We further have alerted the Maritime and Coastguard Authority and the Department of Defence and they have recommended and will be enacting a ban on all air and sea traffic from Omnibus into the airspace and maritime borders of the United Kingdom. Any aircraft that requests to land in the United Kingdom from Omnibus will be denied landing rights, and all maritime craft coming from Omnibus will be diverted from the waters of the United Kingdom. His Majesty's Government will also be seeking sanctions on the businesses of Vladimir Rhaegar and the financial assets of him and his associates, including the freezing of assets in UK banks.
The safety and security of UK citizens abroad and at home is the grounds upon which the FCO in conjunction with the MCA and Department of Defence issue these warnings and make these difficult decisions. We will continue to monitor the situation in Omnibus as well. We do not speak for the House of Commons, but the Government will also decide on whether or not to bring forward the trade deal that was negotiated by former President Shane Raimi.
The Rt. Hon. Stephen Crabb, MP
Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs
