Dear Citizens of eJapan,
Exactly 7 days ago, me and our Country President were contacted by our counterparts in the ePortuguese government with the objective of obtaining a peaceful solution to our war.
The initial offer was:
Portuguese would keep Chubu, Kinki, Shikoku, Kyushu and Japan would keep Tohoku, Kanto and Chugoku.
Our CP tried to change the agreement by switching Kinki and Chugoku and also having Portugal pay a rent for the regions they were going to keep. The Portuguese Government quickly replied to our counter proposal by saying that our deal made it look like we won the war and that by how things are going that isn't happening any time soon.
Our CP added that our offer wasn't too far off to the base offer made by ePortugal and that the renting would be almost nothing compared to the future costs of the war in the days to come. At that moment the ePortuguese CP considered that we weren't taking the negotiations seriously and that he would much rather spend money on fighting than to pay a rent.
I decided to intervene on a more serious note and completely leave the rent topic aside and focus on just the regions that were being kept by both sides. I wanted eJapan to have Kinki and ePortugal to have Chugoku but unfortunatly, and maybe because of outside influence, ePortugal kept refusing that switch and the negotiations ended.
However, both governments kept an open door for possible future negotiations.
This pretty much sums up how it happened so remember that we are still at war with ePortugal. Keep it clean and keep it fun people.
Minister of Foreign Affairs
