SERTIA, NOFOAGA TO PROPOSE CARIBBEAN TREATY
This morning, Councillor Dina announced that she has been in discussion with the President of Nofoaga, Jacques Sale, about the drafting of a Caribbean Treaty. The main portions of the draft include mentions of a joint maritime security agency, a customs union and a free movement agreement between the two close allies.
The treaty would establish the Caribbean Maritime Service, which will have the power to enforce border and customs security, oceanic research, weather monitoring and emergency sea rescues.
The treaty was called for after some Nofoagan citizens arrived to Gadalland and Aspern and received Sertian emergency passports, which allowed them to reside in the Sertian Union for six months. Many did not make it to Gadalland and Aspern, though finding the prospect encouraging, after being urged to defy the Spanish Government by late Councillor Spiggen, an act all Sertian parties condemned as 'deplorable.'
The main task of the Maritime Security Service during times of crisis would be to oversee the safe execution of evacuation measures between Nofoaga and Gadalland and Aspern.
In addition, citizens of both countries would be permitted to move freely between the Sertian Union and the Republic of Nofoaga, protecting their working and residence rights in both places.
Both governments see the value in working with one another in order to reach common goals, as it goes without saying the two nations have very much in common.
