"To the government of the Rihannsu Imperium/Romulan Star Empire:
Before you begin with the customary denial of any affiliation with the renegade Nero, let us spare you that effort by making the following clear: we know with absolute certainty that Nero was acting on his own. We do not hold you responsible for his actions in any way, shape or form.
"It has been rumoured in recent weeks that you are preparing a formal offer of assistance in resettling those Vulcans and other Federation citizens resident on Vulcan who survived the destruction of their homeworld. We would be pleased and gratified to begin negotiations to support that end, with an eye towards formally opening full diplomatic, cultural and commercial relations with the Imperium, should that be your choice over the longer term.
"Peace and Long Life to you and your people."
Signed - President and Council of the UFP
