The Cetus Pact
Optional Defense Pact between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and Andromeda
- Quote :
- Article I: Non-Aggression
Neither Andromeda nor NATO will premeditate, declare or prosecute war against the other signatory or an alliance that that signatory is obligated to defend. Neither Andromeda nor NATO will spy upon each other nor will either signatory encourage outside alliances to declare or pursue a war against the other signatory.
Article II: Communication and Intelligence
Should either Andromeda or NATO come upon or gather intelligence that has a bearing on the affairs or security of the other signatory, that information must be made available to that other signatory within forty-eight hours.
Article III: Optional Defense
Neither signatory alliance is legally bound to grant requests of military action or financial aid from the another signatory alliance. However, should such a request be made through official channels by one alliance, the other alliance has the option of participating. If no request is made by signatory which is in need of military intervention or financial aid, the other signatory still has the option of participating, although nothing is required legally. In either case, in the event that assistance is granted, it should come as no surprise to the world community.
Article IV: Cancellation
Should either signatory feel that any of the previous articles have been breached by the other signatory, the treaty may be canceled. Forty-eight hours notice must be provided by the alliance canceling the terms, indicating the reasoning behind the cancellation.
