And not a moment too soon

In February of 1985, Ugo Vetere, the mayor of Rome, and Chedly Klibi, the mayor of Carthage, signed a symbolic treaty “officially” ending the Third Punic War (which had been supposedly extended by the lack of a peace treaty for more than 2100 years).

About Curzon

Lord George Nathaniel Curzon (1859 - 1925) entered the British House of Commons as a Conservative MP in 1886, where he served as undersecretary of India and Foreign Affairs. He was appointed Viceroy of India at the turn of the 20th century where he delineated the North West Frontier Province, ordered a military expedition to Tibet, and unsuccessfully tried to partition the province of Bengal during his six-year tenure. Curzon served as Leader of the House of Lords in Prime Minister Lloyd George's War Cabinet and became Foreign Secretary in January 1919, where his most famous act was the drawing of the Curzon Line between a new Polish state and Russia. His publications include Russia in Central Asia (1889) and Persia and the Persian Question (1892). In real life, "Curzon" is a US citizen from the East Coast who has been a financial analyst, freelance translator, and university professor; he is currently on assignment in Tokyo.

    He’s been a good mayor. One of those peculiar Italian communists so distant from Moscow and so close to the European socialdemocracies. Eccentrical country!
    Haven’t heard of him in years. Thanks for the reminder.

    According to tunisian Law , only the President can conclude peace treaties with the agreement of the chamber of Deputies(people’s House). The president never signed the treaty and the Chamber of Deputy ( which is by law considered to be the same standing body since it’s creation in 814 B.C) never took a vote .
    Even if we consider that the Mayor is the Defacto Consul of the City of Carthage and not the State of Carthage , the Chamber of Deputies still has to take a vote to Ratify the treaty. Thr ratification has to be made within 15 days from the signature of the treaty ( A Law still standing since the first 814 B.C/ The Third constitution 1957…)( Constitution of Carthage)

    Therefore this treaty is considered Null and Void.
