CENTRAL DISTRICT, Seidaikei (DFNS)
CENTRAL DISTRICT, Seidaikei (DFNS) - The Daikoku Federation went on alert on Monday after the Republic of Kaleido adopted what it calls as the "one Philippine micronation" policy as its foreign policy on Friday.
The Republic of Kaleido, in a very controversial move, adopted in a meeting by its National Assembly on Friday what it calls as the Resolution No. 1 which "[affirms] "One Philippine Micronation Policy" by President Palay and [condemns] micronations who have done unnecessary acts against the Republic of Kaleido."
The State of Ariana responded to this with Darwin Eugenio, Chairperson Ordinary, saying in a statement that "this is most unfair to micronations in the Philippines that do not have an active web presence."
The Presidency of the Daikoku Federation has responded with Co-President Karlos Luis Mozo Anioay saying:
"This is nothing but an distasteful move by Kaleido's Government which places their country further away from its neighbors. If they'd like to continue their little fiasco, then they'd better be prepared for its consequences. I, for one, do not tolerate any violations against the Federation."
Co-President Migs Caldeo has also responded, saying:
"The decision of the Republic of Kaleido to adopt what they call as the "one Philippine micronation" policy is a move against the sovereignty of our Federation."
The Daikoku Federation has also taken up steps against the Republic of Kaleido's latest provocation by placing the entire Federal Defense Force on alert status through a decree on Monday evening.
