Fellow Councillors:

The Organization of Raw Material Exporting Countries (ORMEC) rises in response to the concerns raised by the distinguished delegation from the Republic of Altai.

While it is true that Altai has invested in DDR, Altai does not hold favored nation status according to DDR trade policy. More to the point, Altai will lose all of its investments if the government in DDR is overthrown by anarchists.

That said, since ORMEC does acknowledge Altai's investments in DDR, we counter with the following offer: under ORMEC administration, all DDR, soon-to-be Alaska, seaports and tanker stations will be accessible to all AOG commercial vessels free of toll charges in perpetuity. This is a very generous counter that we hope you will accept.

ORMEC respectfully yields the floor.
