Final Imperial Federal Kingdom nuclear weapons to be decommissioned next month

FRANCISTOWN, GRAND - After forty-seven years, the Imperial Federal Kingdom's military nuclear program is coming to a close as the official decommissioning ceremony for the last two nuclear weapons is scheduled for October 7th.

The first Grandian nuclear weapons test, codenamed Operation Golden Cloud, was detonated on April 1, 1971, after a seven-year program to develop weapons of mass destruction for the Grandian government. It took place in the then-independent Kingdom of Malo, which was a close ally of the Kingdom of Grand. Upon learning of the test, the communist-governed Socialist Republic of Belluterra embarked on its own project to develop equal weapons, but was never able to fully develop nuclear weapons of its own. The last of its biological and chemical stockpiles were destroyed in 2005.

"We hope that being the first nation on Adonia to decommission nuclear weapons that we developed ourselves will help to usher in a new era of peace to the globe, and to end the current political unrest worldwide," the IFK Minister of Defense, Roy Redblade, said when asked for comment - referring to the current upheavals taking place in Euphemia, Carreon, and Althena.

Hedjaz invades Sharan

Hedjaz, bordering the Malonese breakaway provinces of Zebtesia and Forgia, is the largest nation in the region

APELKOS, MALO - The North-Central Althenan republic of Hedjaz has invaded the Principality of Sharan, a major Acadian trade partner. Hedjaz's prime minister, Yateem Hassan, claims that Sharan is a province of Hedjaz, while certain political analyzers believe that Hasaan invaded Sharan because of its inability to pay ε40 million that had been borrowed to finance a recent war with the Republic of Iras. Few nations have yet made an official statement, but due to Sharan being a major trade partner of Acadia, a forceful intervention by that nation seems to be likely, especially after the passing of the internationally controversial Sovereignty Act, which is viewed by many Grandians to have imperialist tendencies.

The Imperial Federal Kingdom, currently involved in its own war in the region, has yet to make a statement on the matter.
