The PABEVICO block was created!
The very first declaration of France to put this treaty to the test and to bring back peace to Europe was that which all Europe wished to see, namely that it became imperative that a final and rapid end is put to an unjust war, which had started in an infamous way, that of Italy against the Ottoman Empire.
The President of the French Republic however made a point of specifying that his country strictly respected the terms of the previous “Treaty of Bizerte”, that no renewal of the non-aggression pact with Italy would be carried out, and that this last pact not having a specified completion date, France considered that it ended on January 1st, 1885.
It will thus be on this date that France will carry its ultimatum to Italy and will expose its terms to the Italian official representative in visit to Paris.

1. France invaded Tunisia in March of 1880 (see Post 15 in this thread).
2. The last reference to the troubles is April of 1880 (post 21 in this thread).
3. The dates of the treaties of Luneville and Austrian-Italy Non Agression are March 1880, and September 1880 (posts 14, and 41 this thread), thus we know that the treaty of Bizerte is between those two (OOC - dropbox date is 3/26/13 which is right in the middle of 3/21 and 3/31, which puts the treaty at early June 1880), and is in fact in June 1, 1880.
Thus we are very concerned, as France has proven by it's words and actions that it's word can not be trusted, and that treaties are only for it's convenience, and will be discarded as soon as France determines it is no longer convenient to France's interest. We hope that the other countries in the PABEVICO block are not so short sighted, and that they will honor their treaty agreements.
