    Until further such notice, Japan will close it's borders, by way of air and port, to all entering and leaving the nation. We are considering the movement of citizens from remote islands of ours to more populated areas. We are gravely concerned at the spread from the USA to Europe of the disease, and hope this does not prove a sign of things to come for the rest of the world.

    We shall be increasing funding spent on research to help worldwide efforts to attempt to find a cure for this.

    NEWS FLASHIn the last 48 hours, very pressing developments have occurred as a result of the talks amongst the Security Council. Despite many insistences that the MUN be moved to New Zealand, its lack of MUN facilities have meant that Nairobi is the temporary location of the MUN whilst it is safe from infection. However, considering the next bloc of news, this could be unwise.

    It has been suggested by International Relations analysts that many of the European and Asian responses to the virus have been ineffective and if not, void within the Middle East. Syria's civil war has created a far greater casualty than its own citizens alone. It was reported today that infected were sighted in Damascus, as well as across the borders in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Israel, as far as Turkey in the north and Egypt to the south. It is believed that Syria took no response to the infection in the US, and as a result, those who were already infected and returning to Syria have contaminated the Middle East. The strategic vulnerability of this area now means that Europe, Asia and Africa are threatened.

    In other news, the Security Council have pledged to quarantine the Americas, led by China. However, considering the news that the infection has arrived in the Middle East, it is uncertain as to whether Security Council nations will have the military capacity to commit to such an attempt when their own security is at risk.

    The US has confirmed that it has begun evacuating those who have survived the infection within its borders, and has advised any survivors via satellite radio to reach designated bunker sites and army facilities as a chemical purge of the infected has been speculated. To the north, Canada has lost contact with the MUN, it is most likely that the infected has breached the Canadian government but it is not clear. To the South, the infection has reached Buenos Aires and so the last country in South America.

    Analysts of the virus are adorning it the 'Nosoi' virus, after the Greek for spread of demonic illness. The MUN collaboration of scientists remain within the US in an underground compound outside of Washington DC where they are continuing to look for treatment for the infection. So far, no such cure has been discovered.

    The Syrian Arab Republic can confirm that it did begin to ground flights, but with its internal struggle with Al-Qaeda terrorists, we were unable to prevent the infection from plaguing the area. The Assad government is struggling to maintain its efforts to keep the nation safe when it is at war with two fronts now. We pray for peace in the Middle East.

    New Zealand is frustrated about the relocation of the MUN. We are undertaking a substantial modification in regards to the New Zealand Parliament Building and the surrounding area if the MUN. Furthermore, we would once again like to remind the MUN that they would be far safer here than in an area that is connected to the mainland, where the infection is spreading rapidly. Following on from that, we have yet to hear of a single outbreak anywhere near to us.

    India hopes that its current defences, including the rapidly developing border-wall, will be able to keep out Nosoi. However, we are becoming concerned about our neighbour Pakistan. The nation is showing very little activity and we fear that an outbreak is currently at work within the nation. As a result, we have primed our missile defences and the bulk of our army is being relocated to the Indian-Pakistani border. However, we wish to remind Pakistan that we are not trying to be hostile with them. We are simply taking precautionary measures.

    Nonetheless, we are still determined to see our pledges to both the United States, The bulk of our Navy has arrived, or is currently arriving, at the East Coast of the United States, where we hope to begin our attempt to reclaim the US within five days. Furthermore, a Strike Team from our Para Commandos has been selected to reclaim the data concerning Nosoi from the Canadian Government. We hope to begin this operation within two days.

    However, in regards to the Quarantine, we feel that it is no longer one that can be supported, given the way the plot is developing. Instead, we urge all nations to assist in retake and rescue across all in infected areas and to aid in the destruction of any and all Nosoi infected. The fact that the infection has escaped the Americas and is now present in other continents means that a simple quarantine of North America has now been made redundant.

    India urges warring nations and factions to put down their arms and to join together in the pursuit of a means to end this crisis. We cannot possibly survive if we continue to fight against each other.

    The United Kingdom is shocked by recent development and does not believe an attempt to quarantine the Americas will be useful any more. We are continuing the self imposed quarantine announced in our previous communique.

    We are in constant communication with the Royal Family and have passed emergency legislation to allow the Queen to exert full authority over her Government if we fall. She has the authority to unilaterally select a Prime Minister and cabinet for a term of fifteen years, after which democratic elections will resume. We have passed on the relevant legislation to other Commonwealth realms for their consideration.

    Additionally, following the loss of communication from the Canadian Government, the Crown will use the Royal Prerogative to transfer sovereignty to the United Kingdom and provide Canadian citizens with the same rights and privileges as citizens of the UK until the crisis is passed. Servicemen and women of the Canadian military are now under the command of the UK and those who were offshore at the start of the outbreak have been recalled to the UK to further reinforce our sea border.

    Finally, at 0100 last night a flight departed Heathrow bound for the British Antarctic Territory. It carries a vital cross section of scientific papers and journals in paper format sealed in a vacuum safe. Scientists posted at the BAT have been given orders to bury the safe. Further transports will follow, carrying artefacts from around the UK.

    The UK will reiterate its support to transfer to either NZ or Aus.

    Additionally, we would like your opinion on the proposal outlined in paragraph 2 of our above post.

    China watches recent developments with absolute horror. We urge our neighbours to adopt self imposed quarantines for their own sake. Note that we will not hesitate to use force to protect our borders if a neighbour becomes infected.

    Those members of the PLA Navy not protecting China have been dispatched to the Americas to assist in reclamation and quarantine.

    In the case of the loss of our governing body, we are willing to support this.

    India concurs, but only if the term of office is shortened so that elections will be held as soon as the crisis is over.

    Excellent.

    We felt that 'until the crisis is over' was too vague a term. It could be exploited to extend the emergency measures indefinitely. 15 years was felt adequate time in order that a new Government might set up the necessary infrastructure to re-establish democracy,


    OOC: To clarifying, is India willing to accept the Queen as head of state if their Gov't falls, or is India just saying it's a good idea for NZ?

    Very well then. You have our consent. However, we hope that we will be able to survive without the temporary loss of government.

    OOC: The former. Don't worry, NZ doesn't need a parent nation (except for the UK)! :')

    Following these developments, the DPRK has decided to seal off our borders entirely. Any person or vehicle attempting to cross the border will be shot and destroyed on sight. A 50-mile zone has been set up in our holy waters; any ship entering this zone will be pulverised by the force of our almighty navy. Although these measures may not strictly be necessary, given recent scientific analysis by the People's Glorious Bureau for Advancement which has suggested the Korean people, superior as we are, may be immune to the disease, Kim Jong-un, in his infinite, infallible wisdom, is taking these steps as an added precaution to safeguard the continuation of our most cherished nation.

    This must unfortunately include nationals of our ally, the People's Republic of China, who must currently stay within Korean borders. However we are open to negotiations regarding their safe return on a case-by-case basis.

    The PRC is most disturbed by this. We have a common quarantine policy already in place in order to allow trade between ourselves. We caution that if our military staff are not returned to the safety of China post haste the consequences will be dire.

    We hope this will only be a temporary measure until our people's racial supremacy can be satisfactorily assured, and we will continue to collaborate with the PRC extensively on this issue. We will also ensure the safe return of all Chinese military staff in the coming days, bidding such noble soldiers farewell with tears in our eyes.

    Russia feel that the quarantine of the Americas is now of greatly diminished value, as such we are considering removing our contribution towards it. We are focusing on maintaining our borders, currently any person found to be entering Russia faces dire consequences, all trade involving Russia is hear by discontinued until further notice. We call for the closure of all land borders within the major land mass of Asia, Africa and Europe, in particular Iraq, Azerbaijan and Georgia. We still support moving the MUN to New Zealand as soon as possible.

    We ask that Syria contain the spread of the infected as much as possible, we offer our support in all matters to any country in the major land mass in dealing with the disease. While we regret not offering help to the Americas, it is too far away and we feel that large parts of US are too deeply affected for them to be worth our time.

    NEWS FLASH
    This afternoon two Royal Air Force Typhoon jets shot down a light aircraft attempting to enter quarantined UK airspace from France.

    The aircraft repeatedly disobeyed orders to turn around, and was only fired upon after orders were given from the highest authority.

    The action was regrettable, and it is believed two lives were lost. The French authorities have been notified.

    France was not aware of any French planes attempting to enter UK airspace but we are dismayed that the UK has shot them down. We hope the UK will be conducting an investigation into the shot down planes and will release its findings immediately.

    NEWS FLASHInfection spreads, panic sets-in, India/US/Chinese collaboration prepare to storm the Americas.

    In the Middle East, Syria has responded despondently to the challenges of infection. The logistics of civil war have prevented any effective response and the Nosoi continues to spread, reaching as far as Southern Europe. It was confirmed this morning that outbreaks had been sighted in Greece and Bulgaria, many reports indicate that the outbreak threatens to spread from Iraq into Iran. In the North, Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan have all reported outbreaks.

    Meanwhile, in Haiti and Hawaii, a co-ordinated strike is being planned for later today with chemical weapons being deployed in all major Eastern and Western cities, a report of which will be issued shortly after by the US Government.

    In France, the outbreak of Nosoi is thought to have breached the outskirts of Paris creating wide-spread panic.

    Following today's news in Europe, the Serbian government have taken the decision to fully mobilise the armed forces and declare a state of emergency. Our borders are secure and on lockdown, and the army have orders to shoot to kill anyone displaying the symptoms crossing the border from our European neighbours. We have altered our neighbours to the action, but have ensured that them the armed forces have orders to remain in Serbian territory.


    IRAN
    Following the threat from Azerbaijan and Iraq, the revolutionary guard, previously on standby, have been fully mobilised and joined the army at our nations borders. The air force are preparing to defend our border in the event that any infected try and cross in to Iran. We have had no response from either the governments of Iraq or Azerbaijan, and cannot be certain that any command structures are still in place. Iranian intelligence has seen evidence that a large convoy of the Iraqi armed forces is heading east, towards the Iranian border.
