Preamble:

We, the governments of the regions of Europeia and The Land of Kings and Emperors, hereafter referred to as the LKE, hereby do enter into the following alliance in order to cement the relationship between our two regions.

2. No Signatory shall directly or indirectly support military operations against another Signatory Region.

Article 2 - Defence of Signatories Under Attack
1. Where any Signatory Region has had military action conducted against it, then the other Signatory that is aware of that action must provide as much military support as it can provide without resulting in a significant threat to its own military security, and will do everything possible to mobilise that support.
2. A Signatory is aware of military action when it has been informed on its forums or on its Regional Message Board, or when it has noticed the action itself.
3. Paragraph 1 does not apply for a Signatory under Paragraph 2 when the military action in question is conducted by an ally of that Signatory.
4. For the purposes of this Article, an ally of a Signatory is a region with a Treaty with a Signatory that provides positive material benefit to a Signatory going beyond non-aggression. Each Signatory must inform the other Signatory of their allies.

Article 3 - Counterattack
1. Where a Signatory Region has had military action conducted against it by any other region or organisation, the other Signatory will provide as much military support as can be given for the purposes of any counterattack that the Signatory may wish to undertake, without causing a significant threat to its own military security.
2. In order Paragraph 1 to apply, the Signatory in question must have informed the other Signatories of its intention to make a counterattack within one month of the last military action, and in any case does not apply if two months have passed since the last military action.
