General Information

The Treaty of Strasbourg was an agreement signed by Icon-Germany.png Germany, Icon-France.png France and the Icon-United Kingdom.png United Kingdom. It was later joined by the Icon-Portugal.png Portuguese Republic and bound these countries together. However, as the United Kingdom left TERRA and started moving towards the ONE sphere of influence, signing MPPs with German/French enemies (such as Icon-Poland.png Poland and Icon-Serbia.png Serbia) and supporting Polish occupation of France and Germany, they broke line B of Article III and so, this treaty was declared dead by its members. Bellow, you can find the original clauses of this former treaty.
