Lonenberg (GP) – The month of October saw a flurry of activity in the Foreign Office. During that time, Götzborg concluded Treaties with six nations, has one pending, and has ratified both the Raspur Charter and the Aremberg-Velsen Pact. The recent interest in relations with Götzborg has been very encouraging. The Minister of State for the Foreign Office is His Grace, the Duke of Altamore:
“We have been very pleased with the latest developments in the Foreign Office. I feel that the interests of other nations in forming official relationships with Götzborg means that we are not only visible to the Micronational world, but that we are somewhat admired. Signing the Raspur Charter brings us into a great Community of nations, and will no doubt serve to enhance our relations with the rest of the world. I am also happy to see that the Aremberg-Velsen Conference has met with mostly positive criticism as well; I am hoping that with Götzborg heavily involved in both of these Organisations, that our nation will continue to rise in the estimations and opinions of others. I also hope and pray that our current visibility brings with it some more citizens!!!”
Of the nations that Götzborg has signed Treaties with recently, one has been a communist nation; The Commune of Velsen and the Royal Kingdom of Götzborg signed a Treaty of Recognition and Friendship which went into effect on 19 October. This marks the first Treaty Götzborg has agreed to with a communist nation.
