Press Release: East Asian Crisis
The United Carolinian Confederation will reiterate it's position to stand by it's ally, the Federal Kingdom of Teiko at this time. We unilaterally support Teiko in this crisis, as outlined by the 2017 Carolina-Teiko Joint Defense Treaty.

Carolina will stand by the statement of it's ally, the Okatian Federation and their intelligence which says that the submarine was located in the Ryukyu Sea which would be several thousands miles from the coast of the Amurian Republic.

Carolina also continues to stand by it's earlier statement that Teiko has the full and unconditional right to conduct naval drills, including those with submarines in international waters. Teiko has the right of navigation to anything further than 12 nautical miles from the Amurian coast line. At this time no intelligence has proved that the submarine was inside of Amurian territorial waters. Therefore the escalation by the Amurian Republic and Republic of Sansheng seems unnecessary at this time.

Carolina will reiterate that it's naval units in the Pacific Ocean, including those who are currently with the US-Carolina Joint Pacific Taskforce have been put on alert. Active duty men and women of the Carolinian Navy at our leased base in Teiko and at Joint-Base Guam have also been placed on alert. We will retaliate to any provocation by either the Amurian Republic or Republic of Sansheng toward our allies, including but not limited to, the Federal Kingdom of Teiko and the Okatian Federation.

Lastly, Carolina hopes to see this event end peacefully and urges the Republic of Sansheng to rethink their deployment of a naval carrier near Teiko.

A Transcript from the Presidential Press Briefing, Andringa Presidential Palace, Savannah, Carolina Capital District, February 14th, 2018:

Abby Whelan: Good afternoon everyone, we of course have a lot of news to cover. First, before I take questions, President Haley will be speaking about the current crisis which is unfolding in East Asia. She will not be available to ask questions after her speech.

Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United Carolinian Confederation

Haley: Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen, please take your seats. As most of you know, right now Carolina is currently a part of a crisis which is unfolding in East Asia, between Teiko and Sansheng. Sansheng believes that Teiko dispatched a submarine off of the coast of Amuria, and thus sent an aircraft carrier reportedly into the Sea of Japan. This move was seen as a provocation toward Teiko and therefore Carolina is obligated by it’s defense treaty to make sure that its allies are kept safe from any threats. We have alerted our naval personnel stationed in Teiko and Guam that they may be needed at moments notice, to confront any threat or provocation from either the government of Sansheng or Amuria against Teiko or any of our allies in the East Asian region. We have not deployed any ships into the Ryukyu Sea nor have we moved any of our personnel from Guam to Teiko, because this is only an issue of defense and not of offense. However, the Sansheng government has repeatedly ignored calls from Teiko, Carolina, and its allies to remove it’s carriers from the sea around Teiko. Therefore, it appears that at this time both Amuria and Sansheng are much more interested in their own interests than regional stability.

Carolina will continue to be a part of the coalition of Teiko, Oka, and Nakama which supports Teiko in the measure and advocates that Sansheng stop their provocation in order to preserve regional stability. Our utmost goal is to make sure that stability in the region is preserved, and Sansheng is posing a threat to that stability. That being said, Carolinian naval carriers will not be told to leave base unless they are being brought back to the Carolinian mainland, or a major provocation is undertaken by Sansheng or Amuria. We will not under any circumstances fire the first shot of this war, unless we are greatly threatened, as we are purely in the region for the defense of our allies. That is the only information that we have of right now. Please direct any questions you have to Ms. Whelan.

The Amurian government wishes to send its regrets to President Haley for choosing to become involved in the ongoing crisis prematurely. While we recognize the treaties Carolina has with the country of Teiko, we sincerely believe that continued Carolinian interference is only bringing this crisis to heightened tensions. The Amurian government wishes that Carolina take a neutral position to first determine origin of the submarine that violated Amurian territorial sovereignty before taking a position against the Amurian Republic.

In Response to the Amurian Republic:
As of now, the United Carolinian Confederation fully believes the intelligence report produced by the Okatian Federation which states that the submarine in question was located within the Ryukyu Sea, which is several thousand miles from the Amurian coastline. As of now, this is the only credible intelligence report which exists. The Siculian satellite imagery also produces a second theory where the submarine in question would be just inside of the exclusive economic zone of Amuria/Sansheng. Therefore in either case, the Amurian Republic and Republic of Sansheng have no right to threaten or provoke Teiko over the submarine, as neither report has shown it within the territorial waters of Amuria. Teiko has a right of navigation of waters outside of 12 nautical miles away from the Amurian shoreline, and this right is protected by international law.

At the same time, Carolina will not bow down to the pressures of Amuria and become neutral as it has the right and responsibility to abide by the treaties it signs as well as protect its allies and it's interests in the Asia-Pacific region. Carolina has not asked Amuria to abandon it's ally, the Republic of Sansheng out of respect for Amurian interests and we ask to be treated with the same respect. It also appears abnormal that Amuria should be asking Carolina to become neutral, while at the same time, Amuria has repeatedly tried to pressure Teiko into peace talks and has tried to bring down a solution in the Alliance of Independent Nations General Assembly which would solve the crisis.

Kendall, my comments on the General Assembly were out of character, which is why they weren’t in blue.
