JOINT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE VOID TOUCHED AND THE GLOBAL ALLIANCE AND TREATY ORGANIZATION
Optional Defence and Optional Aggression Pact between the Global Alliance and Treaty Organization and The Void Touched
In recognition that the Global Alliance and Treaty Organization and The Void Touched agree to peace, friendship and to grow and support each other as time passes.
Article 1 - Non-Aggression
No member nation of either signatory alliance may attack a member nation of the other signatory alliance. Any violation of this will result in immediate reparations equivalent to the damages done. Refusal of the violating nation to pay reparations can result in severe punishment from the alliance they are affiliated with, and the reparations will be paid by another nation of the aggressive alliance. Both alliances agree to peace between each other until article 5 has been activated by either signatory.
Article 2 - Optional Defense
In the event of an attack upon one signatory alliance the other signatory body may come to the defence of the attacked alliance. This is optional and encouraged, but not required.
Article 3 – Optional Aggression
If either signatory requests aggressive military it is strongly encouraged for the other signatory to provide what assistance it can, though both parties accept that this is not an obligation.
Article 4 - Intelligence
Any information picked up by a signatory of one alliance that may contain information leading to hurt/danger towards to their signatory partner must be given to the government of the partner alliance as soon as the information is picked up. Any other information or intelligence picked up by one signatory alliance may be given to the other signatory government, but there is no obligation in this case and it is completely optional. Any privileged information from this relationship may not be shared without the express consent of both parties.
Article 5 - Termination
This treaty may be cancelled if one of the articles given in this pact is not met or one of the signatories has done something that shows ill-will towards their partner alliance. Unless both alliances agree to termination, there must be a 48 hour notice of cancellation before the termination takes complete effect.
