Discussion

The nation of Italy disagrees to Article IV Section 2 of the Treaty of Marseille that requires Italy to allow free access to the Suez Canal for all the allies, for the Suez Canal is only valueable if one can charge fees for entering and exiting the Suez Canal, and considering that the Allies consist of the majority of the world's powers, the Suez Canal loses its value. We also do not feel comfortable enough with these terms for all the Allies, only France and Spain. We instead have a counter proposal of either minimal tariffs (5%-10%) with the Allied Nations for a maximum of 5 years and are willing to continue this proposal with France and Spain. Other than that, the nation of Italy supports the Treaty and agrees to the partition of the British colonies and we praise the creation of the Global Cooperation and we hope that the creation of it leads to a new era of peace and prosperity. -Vittorio Emanuele Orlando, diplomat of the Nation of Italy. (KawaiiKame) == France accepts Italy's offer, with 5% tariffs for all signees of this treaty, for unlimited years.

The nation of the Republic of China disagrees with Article III Section 3 and 4 that calls for a Chinese annexation of Indian lands and an independent state in South India. China, as the first republic in China, is a forerunner to the ideals of liberty and democracy; and thus, has set up democratic governments in India during the war. These states had been home ruled and had actively participated in International cooperation organizations, such as the East Asian Commonwealth. It would be tyrannical to force upon them the yoke of foreign oppression. We instead propose that all Indian territories beside Burma to be put under self determination under supervision of the Republic of China. Moreover, the states that had been established would not be dismantled and the self determination would only happen in the other regions of India. We also disagree about Article III Section 6, which dictates that Singapore would become a Russian colony. The Chinese people had had a long history in the region and is one of the dominant population, and it would be unwise for them to come upon the rule of a culture vastly different to theirs. Thus, China proposes the establishment of a Republic, the Republic of Singapore, in the region. -Wellington Koo, diplomat of the Republic of China.

Italy accepts the general terms of the renewed French proposal, however, we reserve the right to increase tariffs if the nation of Italy is in an economic recession or depression, the nation of Italy also reserves the right to blockade trade in the Suez canal with any nation she is at war at or is at war with her allies, as well as for nations that conduct human rights violations. -Vittorio Emanuele Orlando, diplomat of Italy.

The Republic of China feels great injustice as the harsh reparations that China has been put on by the United Kingdom is not removed in the treaty. The Republic hopes that the United Kingdom would inherit all debt of China and return all leased territories. -Wellington Koo, diplomat of the Republic of China.

The Ottoman Empire disagree with article V and VII of the treaty. We don't get enough land as we only get Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain, that's tiny compared to the Nedj section. I demand half of the Emirates. In Article VII there is no mention of Ottoman Empire. They've been fighting us. My proposal is that I have 1% and the Nedj get 1% too. Mehmed V of the Ottoman Empire Ottoman Empire.

France has now updated its proposal.

The Russian Empire protests against the independence of Australia and Canada, on the grounds that both still hold strong loyalties towards the British and may begin another war in an effort to restore the British Empire. In order to prevent this, Russia feels that these territories must be occupied by Entente forces. — Sergei Karuelov, Head of the Russian Delegation to the Peace Negotiations in Marseilles.

France would like to remind Russia that Canada and Australia would become part of the Global Cooperation, which is an alliance and a governing body. This means that if they invade an ally (Ireland is included), all other allies will need to help stop them. Also, if they try to reunify, the members of the Global Cooperation may vote to expel those countries from the Global cooperation and declare war. Russia would be among the countries with the most say due to their membership on the Council (and influence over two of the members) and their large population (so a lot of Representatives). Finally, you have not been here to say your issues, and we needed to act quickly.

The Russian government, under Regent Nikolai Golitsyn, wishes to request a revising of the punishment of the British states. We believe that our approach to reparations is crippling to the English economy and should be changed to allow a gradual, monitored rebuilding of Britain so that England can once again become a productive member of the world community. Of course, Russia agrees that England must be under constant supervision of the Global Cooperation, but we believe that reparations and/or the rate at which they must be paid should be reduced/lengthened. — Mr Karuelov

It's too late. The treaty is already in effect. If you want any say in the future, agree to this, and you can have input on the future. You missed the negotiations, and now it's the past. Move on, and look forward. -France

The Brazilian government declares on Treaty of Marseille that Brazil wants to annex British Guiana because its occupied by Brazil and is located in South America bordering south with Brazil. - President Venceslau Brás
