Ministry of Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (Abelden)
|Formed||6 June 2014|
The Ministry of Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, also known by its acronym as the MF&CA is the ministerial department of Abelden responsible for protecting and promoting Abeldane interests, as well as those of the Abeldane Commonwealth and the Konmalehth. Established in 2014, it was one of the first ministries established and remains as the seniormost ministry and the only existing ministry dating back from 2014 and 2015.
The MF&CA is headed by the Minister of Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and is one of the Great Offices of State, a list of the most prestigious Cabinet offices, alongside those of Vorsitzender, Stellvertreter and Chancellor of the Treasury. The current minister responsible for the FCA is the Emperor, Newton, who took the position after its position as an office held ex officio by the Vorsitzender in 2020.
Responsibilities and duties
Being the foreign ministry, it is ultimately responsible for dealing the relations of the Empire with other nations and therefore all communiques from other countries go through the FCA. Among its other duties include the operation of the Abeldane Commonwealth and ensuring its members are close with the government but this has since been a defunct duty because the Commonwealth became inactive. It is also responsible for making sure that all treaties with other nations are kept safely and the records of the treaties are available to the public. Another defunct responsibility include the overseeing of foreign bases of Abelden in other countries but following Bosmansk's demise, there are no foreign bases left.
Following the establishment of the Konmalehth, it is now the FCA's responsibility to promote its interests and project since Abelden was a founding member of the Konmalehth. It also keeps a close contact with the members of the Konmalehth.
