Distinguished Council Members:

The Kingdom of Khazaddum rises to inform you and all of Arnheim that, in accordance with a previous agreement with the international community, our military forces have begun the process of mobilizing to pacify the pirates operating along the Barbary Coast of North Africa.

As the international community understood when it previously approved Khazaddum's petition, piracy is a significant problem in the western Mediterranean. The governments in Arborea and East Altai especially understand this. Moreover, the recent wars in Rojava have further destabilized the region and increased the profitability of piracy.

Khazaddum is proud to carry the international banner of peace and stability to the Barbary Coast, and we thank this body and all of its members for their support.

The Kingdom of Khazaddum respectfully yields the floor.
