Dear High King
On the fifteenth of September this year the military council, on request of the "Kamer der Bataven", decided to stop recognition of individual governments. The treaty between the Kingdom of Batavia and your nation that has been in effect for some time contradicts this decision.
The Kingdom of Batavia has changed a lot since Zuidbatavia removed itself from the federal state. We have decided to become a neutral power instead of the side taking nation we once where. Recognition of governments does not fit this neutrality. We have decided to recognize the sovereignty of all countries, including yours, by an order which will be included in the new constitution of the Kingdom of Batavia.
This does not mean that Batavia wants to hurt and damage your commitment to us. On the contrary! The Kingdom of Batavia wants have more freedom in its own course by fairing a neutral policy. This means that Batavia will no longer take part in wars or conflict. The Batavian people want to focus on their own development of culture and a better understanding of micronationalism.
Batavia would still like to have good diplomatic relations with your country and is still searching for cooperation on culture development. You can contact me about this cooperation and there are still possibilities in signing a new treaty.
On behalf of the Batavian people I hope on your understanding of this decision and respect for the new way we want to go to.
Arkadius des Vinandy
Representative of the Kingdom of Batavia
