between

TORN and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization



Preamble

The Order of Righteous Nations and The North Atlantic Treaty Organization:

Aiming at the achievement of a just, lasting and comprehensive peace;



Aspiring to develop friendly relations and co-operation between them;



Seeking a pathway that will lead to full and frank communication between them;



Desiring to ensure lasting security for both Alliances and in particular to avoid espionage and the threat or use of force between them;



Deciding to establish peace between them in accordance with these Protocols for Espionage and Armed Conflict Eradication;

Have agreed as follows:



Article I – ESTABLISHMENT OF PEACE

Peace is hereby established between TORN and NATO (the "signatory alliances") effective from the exchange of the instruments of ratification of these protocols.



Article II – SOVEREIGNITY

Both of the signatory alliances and their respective member nations recognize and will respect each other's sovereignty and political independence. They recognize and will respect each other's right to live in peace within their respective alliances. They will develop good neighborly relations of co-operation between them to ensure lasting security. They will refrain from espionage and the threat or use of force against each other and will settle all disputes between them by peaceful means.



Article III – COMMUNICATION

In signing these protocols, both signatory alliances recognize that full and frank communication is the foundation for a strong and enduring relationship and that there is mutual benefit for both alliances when open communication between them is maintained. To that end, both signatory alliances agree to productive two-way inter-alliance communication:

a.) The signatory alliances agree that whenever a situation arises which involves provisions within these protocols or other issues of mutual concern; there shall be full and frank communication between the signatory alliances.

b.) The signatory alliances shall encourage and promote effective methods of dispute resolution between the signatory alliances and their respective member nations.

c.) The signatory alliances commit to frequent and recurring dialog on each others forums and IRC channels. This commitment is based on the view that open access to each others communication channels is essential to the rapid and efficient inter-alliance communication. This shall include communication at the alliance leadership level where on an as needed basis, representatives of the highest decision making bodies of the signatory alliances will jointly meet to discuss issues of mutual concern. This shall be in addition to routine diplomatic communications and the regular communication between normal member nations.

d.) Government members of both signatory alliances will receive operator status in each other's public IRC channels.

Article IV – OVERT HOSTILE ACTIVITIES

Neither signatory alliance will knowingly engage in the use of sanctions against member nations of the other signatory alliance without formal, written permission from the other signatory alliance. Neither signatory alliance shall endorse, fund, approve or engage in military action against the other signatory alliance. If an individual member nation of either signatory alliance is found in violation of this article, it shall be directed to offer peace and reparations equivalent to 1.5 times the total damages inflicted. Though not required, defending nations shall be encouraged to defer reprisal actions until a diplomatic solution can be reached.

a.) Should the offending member nation of a signatory alliance refuse to offer peace and agree on reparations terms, said member nation will be declared a rogue and will no longer be offered the protection of either signatory alliance.

b.) If a signatory alliance violates this article, such activity shall be considered an act of war.

Article V – COVERT HOSTILE ACTIVITIES

Neither signatory alliance shall knowingly endorse, fund, approve or engage in espionage or other covert action against the other signatory alliance. Both signatory alliances agree not to actively or passively recruit member nations of the other alliance for the purpose of committing espionage. If either signatory alliance collects intelligence regarding a security breach or a credible threat concerning the other signatory alliance, the acquiring signatory alliance will convey all pertinent information in their possession to the other signatory alliance.

a.) Should a member nation of a signatory alliance violate this article, said member nation will be declared a rogue and will no longer be offered the protection of either signatory alliance.

b.) If a signatory Alliance violates this article, such activity shall be considered an act of war.

Article VI – RECIPROCAL DEFENSE

Neither signatory alliance is required to grant requests for military assistance to the other. However, barring other conflicting treaty obligations, should such a request be made through official channels by one alliance, the other alliance is highly encouraged to discuss and reach a consensus decision in their highest decision making body on whether or not to grant military assistance and if granted, in what form that military assistance shall be made.



Article VII – RECOVERY AID

In the event of conflict involving only one of the signatory alliances, upon cessation of hostilities and barring other conflicting treaty obligations, the non-combatant signatory alliance shall encourage its individual member nations to voluntarily provide recovery aid to individual member nations of the war-torn signatory alliance.

In the event of conflict involving both of the signatory alliances, upon cessation of hostilities and barring other conflicting treaty obligations, both signatory alliances shall encourage its individual member nations to voluntarily provide recovery aid to individual member nations of the war-torn signatory alliances regardless of alliance membership.



Article VIII – CIVILITY

Both signatory alliances shall be resolute in their insistence that their respective members remain polite and civil to each other at all times, especially in public forums and other public venues.



Article IX – RATIFICATION

These protocols shall be ratified by both signatory alliances in conformity with their respective procedures.



Article X – TERMINATION
