Friendly ties re-established with Delvera

The Empire of Austenasia and the Grand Republic of Delvera re-established friendly diplomatic relations yesterday with the signing of a treaty.

Diplomatic relations with Delvera – which the Empire had recognised along with its predecessor state NottaLotta Acres since 2010 – were cut on 4 September 2017 after it was discovered that a member of the Delveran government had contacted an Austenasian official with a suggestion to launch a coup against Emperor Jonathan I.

Delvera claimed the incident was “trolling”, but in the context of a low-point in relations (animosity arising from the aftermath of a controversial Facebook Messenger discussion the Emperor had been invited to by the Delveran head of state) was taken as the final straw, and the decision was made to sever diplomatic ties.

With the passage of time, tensions subsided, and last year the Delveran government was contacted with the offer of restoring diplomacy on the condition of an apology.

The Emperor agreed to make the apologies mutual, admitting that the Austenasian government had at points dealt unsatisfactorily with Delveran concerns.

The new treaty, signed yesterday by Jonathan I and Delveran leader Consul Hannah Callahan, has re-established friendly diplomatic ties, including mutual apologies for past wrongdoings and pledges of non-aggression.

There now remain no counties with which the Empire is in a state of mutual recognition without diplomatic relations, with ties having been similarly restored with Sandus in 2019.
