~| A Message from the Imperial Sovereignty of Buya |~|
In Yuri 36, faced with a new and sometimes host-
ile relationship with Nagnang, the kingdoms of
Buya and Koguryo entered into an alliance oblig-
ging each to present a unified front with regard
to Nagnang. Given the political climate of the
time, this alliance made sense. Although Buya and
Koguryo had their differences, we could be united
in this regard.
Now many decades have passed, and the relations
between Buya and Nagnang have improved and been
clarified. There is no longer any reason for my
nation to automatically prefer one foreign power
over another in international conflicts. Thus,
in consultation with the Imperial Ministry, I
have chosen to withdraw from and so nullify the
Buya-Koguryo Alliance of Yuri 36.
Henceforth, Buya shall choose its position in
conflicts based on its own national interests
and not on the obligations of an outdated treaty.
This should not in any way be seen as a sign of
hostility or lessened affection for our friends
in Koguryo, but rather as an overdue adjustment
in Buyan policy. Nor should it be seen as cond-
oning the recent actions of Nangen nationalists
in Masan or elsewhere. Buya will oppose unjust
violence, especially against innocents, even if
we have no legal obligation to do so.
Buya does not seek conflict with any nation and
under my leadership we have sought to avoid it
whenever possible. We !will! fight when our own
defense or interests demand it, and we will not
be walked over or abused without responding, but
from now on we will choose our own battles.
~Head of State of Buya~
