Good Neighbor Doctrine
The Good Neighbor Doctrine (German: Gute Nachbar-Doktrin) is the foreign policy adopted by the Austrian government. In essence, it is a statement of peaceful, non-aggressive intent towards nations who border Austria. The two major principles of emphasizing communication, and respecting sovereignty, form the core of the doctrine. While its principles had been in effect in some form since October 2009, it was not put into a formal doctrine until March 23rd, 2011 by Rangeley and Oraizan (Minister and Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs respectively) under the Vreath Administration.
|“||These are our goals, and our aims. Actions consistent with these policies will be pursued by the Austrian Government. We extend a hand of friendship, with the sincere hope that we may find others who share them.||”|
