[INDENT] [INDENT] [INDENT] [INDENT] Istanbul, Derâliye, April 1885

The Sublime Porte announces the beginning of the work on a railway connection between Nish and Adrianopel and a Grand Station in Sofia. This will close a gap in the continental railway system and henceforth permits to travel from Paris to Istanbul and further to Adana in Anatolia.

Berlin, Germany - April 1885

The German Government welcomes the additional railway extensions in the Ottoman Empire and the connection of the Ottoman network to the rest of Europe. Who knows, maybe one day we can even have a rail line running to Baghdad.

American-British Alliance Canceled

Britain has canceled it's defensive alliance with America. Said Lord Gladstone, "We have been reviewing our alliances, of late, and as they did not assist us during the attack by the French, we have decided to cancel our alliance with them. An alliance is between 2 countries to support and defend each other." There was no reply from American diplomats when asked about this new state of affairs.

[INDENT] The Sublime Porte welcomes the British decision to abandon allies who can not be trusted and feel it further tightens the fantastic relationship between our two empires. We shall not let them down, no matter how great the peril.

We also welcome the German statement and feel encouraged to further extend the railway system into Asia Minor. We are currently gathering material and engineers to reach Dimasq in Syria within the next year. Our engagement contains plans to connect Kuwait, Mecca, Riyad and Sinai.

The Imperial Ottoman Forces introduce new material into their service to henceforth avoid mortifications like the loss of Kars. Both, Army and Navy have recieved a new generation of shells of high armorpiercing performance and stopping power. The infantry and cavalry introduce the Lee Enfield Rifle as new standard weapon.

We recently succeeded to take German engineers into our service to develop a self-propelled vehicle (automobile), that can cope with the special challenges in Our Empire. Within five years we will have established an own industry for such luxury goods.

[INDENT] [INDENT]Istanbul, Derâliye, June 1886

[/INDENT]
[INDENT] Once again the Czar in Russia has proven his hunger for blood and his hatred for Muslim people, when he attacked our Persian allies in the deepest peacetime. We demand immediate peace negotiations and no step onto Persian soil being taken.

We call all our friends to aid us in this time of peril.

Once again, the Turks got it wrong. In deepest peacetime, Persian diplomats were busy trying to fabricate unfounded and untrue claims towards Holy Mother Russia. Well, they were unwise. Now, they must pay the price.

Since it seems that Persia is a warmongering neighbour, we have to estabish an additional layer of border defenses, which we will.

Leaked Diplomatic Post

To: Britain's allies
From: HM's Government

It appears that we now know why America did not support us in our time of need the last time, and why the defensive alliance was canceled. It has come to our government's attention that certain New England politicians have been secretly conspiring to deprive us of our long standing Dominions in Canada. Despite having their invasions fail twice, they seem determined to create the "14th colony". We have ordered an army to re-deploy from Britain to Quebec, and to prepare the same for combat. We ask you to honor your alliance with us in the face of America's greed. We will not attack, but will vigorously defend ourselves.

We thank you for your support in previous wars, and look forward to our continued mutual support.

Lord Gladstone for HM's Government
