SECURITY RETURNS AS NBUTO INDEPENDENCE DAY PEACE INITIATIVE LAUNCHED
Recent reports of insurgent protests on the border of Nbuto and Zumata seem to have been exaggerated in the light of an independent UN report on the region issued today.
UN observers have confirmed that Nbuto Police and Security Forces have successfully pacified the border zone in a high profile 'Hearts and Minds' operation, which has effectively defused the threat of a renewed outbreak of cross border military incursions.
The distribution of freshly baked patisserie amongst the local populace seems to have been a key factor in the success of this initiative.
On behalf of President J.P.Croissant of the Independent Republic of Nbuto, the Ministry of Foreign Relations has also issued an official invitation to President For Life Dr Kenko Gold of Zumata to the Nbuto Independence Day celebrations to be held tomorrow.
This initiative marks an important step forward in the ongoing Nbuto - Zumata peace negotiations.
(in other words, the AK47 game scheduled for tomorrow is postponed to a less prestigious date due to Jon's bike being hors de combat, kaput, buggered etc)
