D

Chapter 01: Pact of Non-Aggression

  1. The Member States/Entities of the DU and the SU shall refrain from engaging in armed conflict with one another in order to promote social harmony and economic integration between the two blocs. The Pact of Non-Aggression formalises the association between the two blocs and ensures that neither bloc must prepare for a military advance from the other.
  2. In case there is a possibility of armed conflict between the DU and SU members, the DUSU-COT DEM (De-escalation Mechanism) shall go into action.
    1. The COT-DEM is designed to ensure co-operation between members of the two blocs and allows for a passive, non-militaristic method of conflict resolution
    2. A member from one of the blocs shall be chosen to provide a space for discussions between the member states/entities involved with conflict and a member state/entity from the other bloc shall be expected to provide staff and moderation to facilitate the discussions for de-escalation and resolution
  3. The states who shall participate in the facilitation of de-escalation must be un-involved in the said conflict and the roles of the two states shall be decided by a lottery system
  4. In the case that the COT-DEM fails to achieve de-escalation and an armed conflict blows out between member states/entities of the DU and the SU, the mutual defense clauses that are a part of both blocs shall remain inactive, meaning, other member states/entities of the bloc shall have no legal obligation to provide military support in the instance of armed conflict between DU and SU member states/entities
  5. In the stead of mutual defense, the un-involved DU and SU nations would be expected to collaborate and ensure a quick end to armed conflict while also ensuring minimal collateral damage due to the armed conflict
  6. In case an armed conflict does break out between DU and SU members, a tribunal consiting of at least 2 DU and 2 SU nations shall be formed to adjudicate on the penalities to be imposed on the member states/entities participating in the armed conflict, as well as deliver justice by conducting free and fair trials for war criminals

Chapter 02: Free Trade Association

  1. The member states/entities agree to enter into a free trade alliance, meaning goods originating in member states/entities of one bloc shall not charged any form of duties, tariffs or quotas while getting imported into the member states/entities of the other bloc
  2. Nations would be encouraged to ensure an easy movement of goods and services between blocs by removing physical and other barriers to trade, but there shall be no legal obligation under this treaty to eliminate such physical barriers
  3. The Free Trade Association would recognize certain goods and services as unique cultural heritage of certain nations, upon submission of a list of such goods and services, and members shall be allowed to apply certain trade restrictions on such goods and services

Chapter 03: Customs Agreements

  1. The DU and the SU shall, for the sake of economic integration, form a Customs Group
    1. The Customs Group would be a body made up of representatives of all member states/entities of the DU and the SU
    2. The Group shall have no binding legal powers but shall be a place for deliberation on customs regulation
  2. The DU and the SU shall make use of the Customs Group to deliberate upon and try arriving at the same or similar customs regulations, essentially matching each other in custom regulations, allowing for the smooth functioning of the Free Trade Association
  3. Since the Customs Group has no binding legal authority, no bloc is obligated to follow regulations, but for improving economic relationships it would be in the best interest of both blocs to deliberate and apply at least similar customs regulations and policies

Chapter 04: Social Integration

  1. Both blocs shall be encouraged to remove travel restrictions on individuals from the other bloc allowing for easier movement of people between the two blocs both for business and travel purposes

    2. The BoG shall decide the number of scholarships made available to students from each member state/entity for each year
    3. The Scholarships shall allow students enrolled in schools and universities of DU and SU member states/entities to study in a member state/entity of the other bloc for one academic year
