Mexican Assembly Cordially Invites Dixie President to Monterrey
After the fairly threatening statements given by president Wilcoxson, the Mexican Assembly has decided to cordially invite the Dixie president to Monterrey for further discussions. Prime minister Navarros publicly stated how such threat was simply "out of the blue". "Given that our claims are at least 100 years old it is indeed a surprise that the Confederates have only reacted to it now. We are only formally rectifying and tracing the territories that have belonged to us by right, there is no problem in that". The warm invitation to Monterrey is believed might help to show president Wilcoxson the warm heart and intentions of the Mexican people, "We are not invading Letroro as most countries believe, we are only acting upon their own will" stated prime minister Navarros.
As of the recent statements given by The Republic of Esenia, there have not been any concerns to underline.
Dai Viet Celebrates Japan's Enthronement of Emperor Naruhito
In an act of good faith and best wishes, Emperor Nghia III attended the official enthronement of Emperor Naruhito of Nippon. The two exchanged hugs and precious gifts as symbols of continued economic and diplomatic relations. Citizens of Vietnam waved the Japanese and Vietnamese flags side-by-side in honour of the two countries' long intertwined histories. The city of Hoi An, famous for the Chua Cau (a bridge built by Japanese immigrants), celebrated the cultural influences on the region with a Japanese cultural festival.
BERLIN - In light of Mexico's refusal to withdraw its claims to the American Southwest, the Fatherland has remained true to its promises to its Caparthian allies and has - until further notice - placed a ban on weapons' shipments to the Mexican military. Likewise, German forces stationed in Mexico have been instructed to - effective immediately - cease providing training to Mexican forces should the Mexicans remain obstinate in its commitment to reclaiming the Southwest. The Foreign Ministry asserts that this is not an abandonment of Mexico but rather Germany's only means of forcing Mexico's cooperation in this matter.
Meanwhile, German defense conglomerates - such as Mauser and Messerschmitt - have expressed their dismay at Germany's so-called 'lack of spine,' irked by the need to cancel the Mexican government's orders.
"It is a sad day when our Fatherland is cowed from supplying its dear allies," a Krupp spokesman declared on national television. "Though the actions of the government are understandable, we cannot help but feel great agitation at our inability to provide weaponry to our partner states." Representatives from Mauser & Rheinmetall have likewise condemned the German government's unwillingness to follow through.
Though Germany is pressuring Mexico to cease & desist with its expansionist rhetoric & attempting to secure a diplomatic resolution to the crisis, the German Foreign Ministry warns all parties involved that German troops are presently stationed in Mexico. Attacks against Mexico may force German involvement.
"The safety of our service personnel is of the utmost importance," stated Minister of War, Albert Von Zieten, during a press conference. "We hope, therefore, that no nation will regrettably force our hand by threatening them. We have some thirty thousand service personnel in Mexico - many operating critical air-defense, radar, & naval equipment. We will react to protect these systems if they are threatened. Let us hope that diplomacy will prevail. We are currently seeking a diplomatic solution. We hope that warmongering nations will not upset the delicate situation. We hope to meet with our Caparthian allies soon to discuss the proceedings & perhaps even German involvement in California."
Known for their large number of endemic species which were studied by Charles Darwin during the second voyage of HMS Beagle, the Galápagos Islands served as the base for the 5th Marine Brigade. The 5,000-strong force and its sister formation on the mainland - the 6th Marines (based in Manta) - have been ordered onto their highest operational readiness for immediate deployment within 6 hours.
Such a military readiness level would fall under alert state "DEFCON 2" if the order was issued on a nationwide or combat theatre specific level.
Defence officials have cited preparations for military exercises hosted by Caribbean Command (CARICOM) in which the 5th and 6th (who fall under Pacific Command [PAFCOM]) will compete against brigades under CARICOM. An increased number of ships have been spotted in and around the Galápagos Islands as of recent, as well as at the Port of Manta. The Defence Ministry has informed the allied formations attached to the Federation Combined Force that the long-anticipated Caribbean "DEFCON 1" wargames would be initiated sometime before next month.
The most active military region in Esenia, Caribbean Command had remained on DEFCON 2 since the start of the diplomatic dispute between North and South America that resulted in the creation of WLIS and CATO. The rest of the nation (falling under Interior Command [INTCOM]) had been shifted back to DEFCON 3. For the wargames, the 200K(appx) Federation Combined Force alongside other participating elements would engage in a DEFCON 1 combat simulation against an unknown enemy.

Mexico Renounces All Claims Over USA
In light of German declarations, the Asamblea General has decided to withdraw the Reconquista campaign in favour of more peaceful policies. All claims to the United States of America have been relinquished. Following public statements from the government, the minister of defence gave a public speech concerning recent developments "We can't suffer political defamation nor risk our most important alliances, it is important that throughout our will to unite our country we must preserve integrity. It has been clear that we have stepped a limit which we must not cross.". Following the public speech, the government declared the withdrawal of the Guardia Nacional from the Mexican-American border, where they will be relocated near Letroro.
Mexico to Buy American Armament
The Mexican government has shown a strong will to buy military equipment from Hanakii. This has been followed after Germany's ban on any German shipment to Mexico and the subsequent cease of the German-Mexican training program. Further negotiations with the United States of Hanakii are expected for possible economical pacts and treaties.
Marines deployed to Esenia
Naval Infantry Command has confirmed that a key part of Leridia's Quick Reaction Force (the 1st Marine Brigade) has been deployed to Esenia for upcoming military simulations in the Caribbean and to reinforce the ten thousand strong Leridian contingent in the Federation Combined Force. Meanwhile several fighter jets and attack aircraft belonging to Leridian Naval Aviation have been spotted in Cuba.
Maracaja ready for Caribbean exercises
The 100,000-strong Maracajan Forces Esenia (MF-E) part of the Federation Combined Forces is ready to participate in the Esenian-led "DEFCON 1" wargames in the Caribbean. In preparation for the simulation and for maximum realism, the Ministry of Defence has placed the 6th through 12th Military Regions into Alert Level 2 (DEFCON 2). Additional forces from the Maracajan Navy and Maracajan Air Force are being sent to the region as part of the operation. Military officials view the Federation-wide exercise as a pivotal and integral part of boosting regional defence cooperation and bolstering the security of the Federation by allowing for a realistic simulation of how Federation forces would issue an unified and thorough military response to an aggressor state.
Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit serves the executive and Northrop Grumman with an injunction over Mexican arm exports
Today the Hanakiian Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit served the Department of Defence, President Wilcoxson, Northrop Grumman, and other arms manufacturing companies an injunction over the sale of Hanakiian weapons to the Mexican Empire. The court blocked the sale of arms temporarily as Representative Jerry Pollard et al. filed a suit claiming that President Wilcoxson is in violation of the Arms Export Control Act arguing that the president failed to "inform both Houses of Congress of the details, giving Congress twenty days to adopt a "veto" resolution." It was argued that the executive pushed with the sake right away and didn't allow congress to act on it, also Pollard et al. state that "the AECA requires that each nation that receives a shipment of arms from Hanakii must certify that the weapons are used for internal security and legitimate self-defense, and that their use does not lead to an escalation of conflict," and thus Mexico are in violation of the guidelines of the act, so the sale shouldn't have gone through anyways. It is unknown how long the court will take to make a decision.
This will serve as a cautionary tale for the Wilcoxson administration as it planned to go ahead with a sale of weapons to Esenia shortly thereafter.
