Amendment to the Tomato Treaty
« on: April 27, 2015, 02:21:39 AM »
While voting was ongoing in our regions' legislatures, Ramaeus and I noticed that the very last clause of the Tomato Treaty is written very sloppily and, in fact, references parts of the treaty that were removed in drafting. It is the opinion of both of us that this last clause can be removed without affecting the other parts of the treaty, and we agreed to submit the change to our legislatures once the treaty became law. So, I propose the following amendment to the Tomato Treaty:

Quote from: The Tomato Treaty
The Tomato Treaty
A Treaty of Friendship and Amity between Taijitu and The East Pacific

Preamble

The sovereign regions of Taijitu and The East Pacific, as governed democratically by the Ecclesia of Taijituan citizens and the Concordat of The East Pacific, are independent regions. Recognizing the sovereign right of both parties to maintain a military furthering the region’s security and foreign policy and respecting the sovereignty of our own regions, our allies, and all regions in NationStates we join as friends in this treaty.

Article One
1. The parties agree to maintain a mutual embassy relationship, onsite and offsite.
2. The parties agree to penalize willful violation of the other party’s rules for RMB posts on that party’s RMB, should the other party allow embassy RMB posts.
3. From time to time, the parties will organize cultural events on the regional offsite forums or RMB of one or the other party.

Article Two
1. If the sovereignty of a party is threatened by outside forces, the other party will assist proportionately in coordination with and by the consent of the threatened party.
2. Military activity in another region does not constitute extension of the region’s sovereignty.
3. The parties will collaborate militarily on request when their forces are not otherwise needed.
4. Cooperation may only be requested for operations consistent with Article Three, other agreements entered into by the requested party, and the requested party’s regional law.

Article Three
1. The parties, recognizing the overriding principles of respect for regional sovereignty, diplomatic integrity, and interregional cooperation, pledge to one another to hold faith with all their treaties and behave honorably with their diplomatic partners.

Article Four
1. If either party breaks the treaty, the other party may warn them of this.
2. Any violation of the treaty, however, is grounds for termination.
3. Either party may withdraw from the treaty with seven days’ notice.

Article Five
1. This treaty may be amended by mutual consent, through the normal ratification processes of the two parties.
2. Amendment which does not make the treaty incompatible will not end the applicability of the respect under this treaty for other mutual alliances or vice versa.

Looks fine to me. I assume there's no pressing hurry for this and you aren't requesting expedited consideration/voting?

Ramaeus has told me that over in TEP there has been a motion and second on this, so in response to that I motion for a vote here.
