To whom it may concern;
This matter was refered to the Serran Council for consideration. At this point in time, the IUN has decided to side unto caution and not to sign the treaty as it is presented. The IUN's offical position on your corporation is that of Freelances, noted in the Hauges Conventions of New Zealand, 2193, and to this end, benefit from being considered non-combatants until actions otherwise change that stance. Several other issues were outlined, but these are listed below.
1: We'll be given access to your sectors to rescue people stranded on planets. If they're wanted toward your empire we'll hand them over, but only if we rescued them when they were in your sector. If they weren't then we can't get involved.
The IUN maintains the strictist border policies, and ships entering Ural territory must submit to sensor sweeps of the cargo hold areas before being permitted access across the border line. This section of the treaty also maks it clear that your corporation would be avoidant of patrols in order to get IUN suspects out of IUN custody. This we cannot allow. In addition, the IUN maintains it's own SAR Groups in which they are most effeicent.
2: "You do not attack people we are protecting. If they're wanted toward you and we're protecting them in your sector we'll then hand them over."
All ships within Ural Territory space are subject to Desires Of The Owning Empire until which time they depart.
3: We will not attack each others' ships.
Your Corporations rights are protected by the Hauges Convention of New Zealand, 2193, and as such, are not required as additionals in this treaty.
Desires Of The Owning Empire: This means that the officers on site at the incident (And their superiors) in question have complete control over what happens. In short, a violation of this treaty (or Hauges Convention) means that the vessel(s) in question become subjects of the Nation/Body in question, and as such, Rule of War no longer applies. The Nation/Body is free to act upon these subjects as they wish (Which may include, but not limited to destruction of vessels, indefinite imprison, death penalty etc.)
