The Mount Vema government today was forced to issue an explanation to the media why invitations to foreign leaders to visit Mount Vema don’t include countries that would be apparent allies and natural trade partners of the Vema Seamount Territory.
The government explained that it had to change its priorities because Mount Vema stopped sending or accepting postal correspondences more than two years ago. So, when a country or territory cannot be contacted through its official website, officials must wait until the communication can be done in person.
The reason is not only to make Mount Vema more environmental-friendly, by avoiding letters, which requires the consumption of paper, but also security.
According to the Mount Vema security services, except for in very special circumstances, no correspondence will be sent or received that requires screen for suspicious items or substances that could be a threat to general security.
The government encourages all government departments and companies to use forms available on official websites which are generally encrypted and free from virus.
