The Sultanate of Phoenicia claims its Territorial Waters to extend 180 nautical miles (= 333 km) from each point of the Phoenician coast, including islands, into the ocean. The seaward border against neighbouring states is a perpendicular line from the point where the land border reaches the coast.

A chart portraying the claim will be published later.

Within these Territorial Waters,

  • fishing or crosing with fishing craft is forbidden for all non-Phoenician seacraft,
  • crossing by other merchant ships except fishing craft is free,
  • friendly crossing by foreign naval force is subject to prior permission by the Forign Department,
  • flying is allowed subjct to the orders issued by the Royal Aviation Office.

Every violation will be pursued, infringing fishing craft captured, infringing aircraft or batleships fired upon.

At the time being, the Royal Zartanian Navy and Air Force are in charge of enforcing these rules.

Peace to Vexillium's Oceans!

Salem Alejkum to the illustrious Vexillic Nations!

Attached please find the chart portraying the Territorial Waters claimed for Phoenicia.

The available chart does most regrettably not show enough of the Futuronian Ocean to make it possible to portray the Territorial Waters in their whole extent. Therefore, only some bits of sea frontiers are shown (in blue). Thus, most of the oceanic area shown on the map is Phoenician water.

To the Seafaring Nations of Vexillium

Salem Alejkum to the Nations of Vexillium!

Following the examples of prominent nations like Christiana and the GBR, Feniz declares and claims the following oceanic zoning (ref. attached chart):

(a) Territorial waters (TW) 12 nautical miles light blue
<c 1 pixel>
(b) Home waters (HW) 45 nm solid blue
<as given by the new official map>
(c) Sphere of interest waters (SW) lines equidistant to all neighbours incl. counter-coast (Estontetso, Ulanova, Phenixia) blue bordered area
    SW start at the point where the borderline with Estontetso meets the coast, reach out to 10° N 4° W (most northern point) - 6° 30' N 2° 30' W (most eastern point) and end where the borderline with Phenixia meets the coast.

The different rule applicable in TW and HW are still to be defined. For the time being, both zones are sovereign territory where the Royal Navy shall patrol to provide emergency and safety services together with the FSSSP, and to enforce the laws of the state.

Friendly crossing of TW and HW by foreign naval forces is subject to prior permission by the Foreign Department.



Claim for Territorial Waters - Actual Version - 08 April 301 - Page 2

Flying over TW and HW is subject to the rules and orders issued by the Royal Aviation Office and its branches which will be in accordance with international flight rules as soon as they are agreed.

The SW pertain to economic, regional, and ecologic interests, including fishery, offshore resource mining, rescue operations, and enforcement of environmental protection measures. In particular, fishing or crossing with fishing craft is forbidden for all non-Fenizic seacraft.

The Royal Navy will patrol the SW to provide emergency and safety services, in accordance with eventual provisions of law as laid down by the UNV.

Any lands that are discovered or shall arise in the SW shall belong to the state. Those lands shall immediately have the TW and HW territory assigned to them.

Regulations for the air traffic and aeronautical safety over SW will be installed, in accordance with international flight rules as soon as they are agreed.

This new definitions make obsolete and replaces the declaration on Territorial Waters as of 11 April 300 AP.

Peace to Vexillium's Oceans!

Salem Alejkum to the Secretary and Member Nations of the WLT!

Due to the annexion of former Hochlandia, Feniz has calculated the future
requirements for its armed forces. [...]

The strength of the enlarged armed forces will never exceed 90,000 soldiers;

million, the proportion of military will decrease despite the enlargement.

Non-recognition of the Theocracy of Ordland - 09 February 01

Foreign Department

HE Ines Verdeira
Secretary to the Minister for External Relations
Kingdom of Ordland

Salem Alejkum to the Kingdom of Ordland!

It was with astonishment and bewilderment that the Sultanate of Feniz has received the message of the Kingdom of Ordland conceding independence to the Master's Army in the region of Copernicus, to be known as the Theocracy of Ordland, and releasing "General Luminous Sunshine" and other members of that terrorist community.

In the view of the Administration of Feniz, this move is clearly not in line with the objectives of anti-terrorist efforts, let alone the ATO. On the contrary: This concession and releases are an irresponsible and disgraceful genuflection before the terrorists which should have better been defeated by all military means.

Therefore and in order not to disturb the relations with the Kingdom of Ordland, the Sultanate of Feniz will not recognize the Theocracy of Ordland. The sovereignty, however, of the King of Ordland over the Copernicus region is out of question.

Peace to Ordland!

Sheikh G'Ensh-Er Pasha
Secretary for Foreign Affairs
