The Conference of Constantinople, taking place between June 15th and September 26th 1598, was attended between different parties of both the nations of Pskov and the Roman Empire, to discuss and resolve the territorial claim conflicts that have arisen between both nation states, the former a fledgeling colonial power, and the latter an established colonial empire. The Conference of Constantinople was preceded by the short conference of Pskov (if it can even be called that), held on the 29th of May 1598, where diplomats were given directives to discuss the territorial conflicts in the Imperial Isles (OTL Caribbean Islands) between Pskov and Constantinople. The Conference of Pskov was short and indecisive, with the Veche ultimately deciding to give the Prince and the Imperial Co. a "blank check" mandate to go to Tsargrad and finalize the decision without resorting to war, with the only condition that no concessions be one sided, Pskov must gain for everything it looses, the Veche itself being tired of discussing this matter as basically nobody lived there and they got bored, and would rather discuss the new taxes some find unfair and replace them with other taxes that don't target them specifically. The Conference decided the matter of colonies decidedly between the two powers, and without resorting to violence, becoming popular as a symbol of triumph of diplomacy throughout both the nations involved, and Europe at large, which did not want to see another conflict, especially after something so petty as uninhabited farm islands. The Conference was attended by Dimitri Borisovich "The Defender" Sokolov, the Prince of Pskov, Anton Fridrikhovich Ribakov, the head of the Pskov Imperial Company(colonial administration), ten other representatives from the Pskov Veche, and Thomas II Palaiologos, Emperor of the Roman Empire, Andronikos Komnenos, governor of Antillia, and ten other Roman diplomats, bringing the conference to about 24 official attendees.
