The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland rejects the Convention of Stockholm and will continue to associate itself with North Anglica (Teutonic State), as it has been requested to do so by its leading reformer.
The government of Davishire echos the comments made by the United Kingdom. We shall also continue to exercise our rights to use international waters around the Scandinavia as we see fit.
The Government of Davishire also dismisses Kalmars right to claim a degree of sovereignty over Scandanavia.
The Duxburian Union categorically rejects the Convention of Stockholm and the right of Kalmar to administrate territory that it does not physically possess. Interference with Duxburian trade and allies is not recommended if Kalmar wishes to make it to 2016, let alone 2019.
(OOC: UMm you do realise plot 6 is my territory right? I don't give you the right to make policy decisions over within my territory. Xeng governs Xeng, no-one else)
As much as the Twelve Commonwealths doesn't want to get involved in the North, it has to speak out against this silly declaration. Once again the North has played host to fickle, kneejerk responses. Like our friends in the Duxburian Union, we reject this Convention as having no legitimacy whatsoever. We call on Kalmar to abandon it's course of action in antagonising it's neighbours, and work peacefully to put this blemish behind it.

The people's republic of keygraystan votes against this on the grounds that this takes away peoples right of self rule
Those of you that have replied keep in note this is within our internal nation alone any passages you are concerned about please quote upon them and we will clear up any confusion. This convention is not to be concerned by anyone else but the United Kingdom of Kalmar. I apologize if you thought this was a proposal.
Furthermore I see some concerns from my Scandinavian brothers and sisters that suggest we declared our sovereignty over plots 1-6. What we meant to say is that is what we consider as the Scandinavian region. This purpose of this proposal is simply stating that Kalmar will try to stay out of conflicts happening outside the region stated. Davishire, we disapprove of your presence in this region not necessarily making you get out.
I do think that some nations are instigating a simple foreign policy that was adopted by our nation than necessary. Please don't especialy if we are trying to fix things. Thanks
A message from His Imperial Majesty:
"I have to admit I sighed rather deeply when I saw this declaration. Of course, Kalmar's government has the full right to declare whatever niceties it wants to declare, but not so much if that comes at the cost of other sovereign nations in the region. I and Inimicus have been very, very careful in involving Ourselves in the mess - no offence - the North has been in recent months, but it may be known that the Empire will, at any cost, defend another nation's sovereignity. It seems the former Teutonic State is finally stabilising and reforming, we do not need yet another rogue nation in the region.
As the Imperial Armed Forces acted in Groot-Belgie when that nation went out of its bounds, as they rescued me in Rimroth, and as they blockaded when Davishire falsely invaded the Prussian State, they will not shun action against Kalmar, should that nation threaten or act firmly against another nation's territory or sovereignity."
Kalmar, the government of Davishire would like you to redact your comment regarding Davishirian presence in the region. The government considers it to be interference in our foreign policy and goes against the peace treaty which you signed and agreed to.
The United Kingdom of Kalmar has not interfered with any military or foreign choices that Davishire has committed to. We, as a sovereign nation should be able to express our disapproval of such of actions. Furthermore, we did not say "anything" about military presence of specifically of yours.
Section 1 of the Davishire-Kalmar peace treaty clearly states the following
"1-Kalmar agrees that it shall not get involved or comment upon Davishirian Foreign Policy and the actions of Davishire"
Now, I please ask you to reconsider this comment.
"avishire, we disapprove of your presence in this region not necessarily making you get out."
which is a clear comment upon our foreign policy and is a breach of the agreement.
Cllr David Cameron
Minister of State for Europe
We have stayed true to our terms. We did not say "Davishire" anywhere on this convention. This is expessing our postion not actions
If we achieve to be regonized as a neutral nation, we will withdraw this convention due to lack of purpose.
