22 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Monsieur le President would like to officially welcome all great leaders and wish them a peaceful coexistence.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Further to this, French envoys would like to make some national positions clear.

To the Prime Minister of the great nation of England: France believes the English Channel is a peaceful waterway in which military vessels have no place at this time. L'ambassadeur would like to impress upon you that France hopes England has similar goals for the cleanliness and emptiness of the Channel.

To the Prime minister of the beautiful provinces of Italy: We would offer a hearty bongiorno to your envoys and express our desire to keep the serene fields of Piedmont free from strife and military exercises.

To the people of Iberia: fear not for French rule is coming. Pastries and cigarettes will soothe your shores and bring peace to your lands.

23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Dearest friends in European peace and prosperity, as our great empires span nearly the entirety of Europe and much of the world, I wish to speak to you over foreign affairs. A new century has just begun - will we make it a century of disastrous war and shattered empires, or a century of peace and prosperity? Perhaps some for the first, some for the second, but only time will really tell.

To my Dearest Tsar Nicholas, I wish for mutual peace and prosperity between us. I may like to commence mutual military activities in my province of Galicia, as it could be used for military maneuvers against each other. However, I believe it would also be mutually beneficial if we could agree to leave the province of Galicia vacant, although ultimately the final decision is up to you, my friend.

To my Ottoman friend, the Sultan Abdul Hamid II, I would like to inquire over your plans for this year, and would like to ask whether we could collaborate in the future.

My friend the Italian President, Mr. Giuseppe Zanardelli, and the great Italian King Vittorio Emanuele III, I would like peace and prosperity. It is well-known that Italian-Austrian war never ends well for either party, and as such I would like to make a series of mutual militaristic activities, colloquially known as "bounces", in the Tyrolia-Trieste region. The exact nature of these bounces is up to you, of course.

To my friend Kaiser Wilhelm II, I would like to inquire you about mutual defensive procedures. Our nations can be extremely vulnerable, nestled in the center of Europe, and it seems only logical we band together in a non-aggression pact. In addition, I would like to ask you to, by virtue of a bounce in Burgundy or even Tyrolia, to keep your army in Munich in case of Italian perfidy.

My friend King Edward VII, while we have no common border as of yet, I wish you good luck in your military maneuvers this year.

And the same to you, President Émile Loubet of France. While we have no common borders, good luck in whatever moves you may make.

Franz Joseph I
Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary
Dated February 28, 1901, and sent from Vienna, Austria
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Bongiorno greatest emperor Franz Joseph the first. French ambassadors wish you all the best in the Balkans. Hopefully the region may avoid the strife that so often plagues it.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Emperor Franz Joseph I,
I, Prime Minister of Italy, hereby declare no intention in conquering any of the Austrian lands. As you must probably know, your lands are not suitable for winery.

Mr. Le president du France, I appreciate your wine. As I couldn't make a better wine out of your lands, I prefer to import it. Be sure no hostility will be seen in Piedmont.

Mr. Sultan of the Ottoman Empire,
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: I also would like to inquire over your plans for this year, and would like to ask whether we could collaborate in the future.

To the other rightful leaders, good luck in your respectful endeavors.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: These United Kingdoms seek expansion into Norway, and beyond that are willing to play nice with our neighbors.

Having said that, we find the President of France's eagerness to keep our ships out of our own channel rather worrying. We propose instead that the channel is kept empty with these bouncing contraptions that the great Franz Joseph I of Austria discussed.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: the president of Russia speak very bad in English, please, excuse him for his bad english ^^

Russia will be happy to let Galicia neutral if Austria didn't contest Rumania !

Russia will be happy to play nice with England if he didn't see England in Norwegian Sea or Sweden.

Th president of Russia want every others presidents will have fun in this game ! :)
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Dear Monsieur le Premier Ministre, under auspices of the King of England: The French president is unhappy with this strategem and worries that military exercises in the Channel speak to a dangerous lack of trust between our people. It would be significantly better for both our people if we left the channel peaceful and our fleets were capable of liberating other shores. We bear no ill will to England and our envoys would like to stress that President Loubet is only as good as his word, and will honor the peaceful tranquility of the Channel to further peace between England and France
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: The President of France welcomes the powerful German Kaiser and would be interested to see his perspective on the province of Burgundy. France wishes for peace between our people. A West which gets along is a powerful West.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Italy, to be safe, let us bounce trieste and venice.

Russia, I will stay out of rumania if we can keep bounce galicia this turn.

Emperor franz Joseph
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Or keep it vacant, actually. Let's dmz it.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Sultan Abdul Hamid II:

Well friends, a new century has dawned. Now is the time for peace between our nations.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Good tsar Nicholas of Russia, if you allow my fleet to enter the black sea, I promise you peace, prosperity, and Rumania.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Good Austrian Franz Joseph, I hope that we can work together in the future. Perhaps an alliance is in order? As to this spring. I'll allow you Serbia, but I would appreciate it if I was allowed Bulgaria and Greece.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: As to my friends in Italy, a mutual peace agreement would be beneficial to all. I would like no attempts at our homeland or the Balkans. Furthermore, I will allow a fleet in the Ionian sea, but I must have the Aegean sea.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Wonderful leaders of France, Germany, and England, I wish you good luck in whatever you choose to do.
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Sincerely,
Sultan Abdul Hamid, second of his name and protector of the Ottoman Empire
23 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1901: PARIS (Le Monde) –
The people of France grew fearful and restless while waiting for a missive from Kaiser Wilhelm on the state of Germany's relationship with their nation. Rumors spread throughout France that Germany had organized military maneuvers in secrecy. President Loubet was unable to be reached for comment.
