Foreign relations of Sirocco

The foreign relations of the Federal Commonwealth of Sirocco were established prior to Sirocco's foundation on 4 November 2010. It chiefly manages diplomatic relations via MicroWiki and the national mail service. Sirocco's foreign policy is managed under a policy of being recognised (and recognising) as many micronations as possible, in order to allow mutual prosperity in both nations.
Diplomatic relations were initially established with the Slinky Empyre on 8 October 2010. Relations with Los Bay Petros, Starland and Zealandia were also organised prior to foundation. All relations established prior to foundation were made official upon the signing of the Constitution on 4 November 2010.
Sirocco currently recognises 28 micronations. Only one micronation has ever terminated relations with Sirocco, that being Burkland. However, currently Burkland still recognizes Sirocco despite the termination of relations.
Sirocco's official foreign policy is that of friend-making, whereby as many diplomatic relations as possible are established. Relations may be managed unofficially (i.e. without a formal treaty) or via a mutual recognition treaty. Sirocco recognises the sovereignty of the current and future governments of all micronations it has established relations with.
Sirocco recognises all macronations and the legitimacy of their governments (with the exception of the governments of North Korea and Myanmar/Burma), as well as the independence of Kosovo, Tibet, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Under Sirocco's Constitution, only micronations with which Sirocco has established relations are officially recognised. Many other micronations are not recognised but acknowledged - this meaning that it is known that these micronations exist but no relations have officially been initiated. This is the case with all nations before relations with Sirocco began.
Friends of Sirocco are nations with which relations have been established. Allies of Sirocco are nations with which a formal treaty has been signed.

These are micronations with which Sirocco automatically recognised on November 4, 2010. A mutual recognition treaty does not need to be signed with automatically-recognised micronations. Automatically recognised micronations are those which are seen as the "superpowers", and are not members of the MicroWiki sector.
Sirocco has no official policy for joining micronational organisations, however it was a member of the Organisation of Active Micronations, having been unanimously accepted on November 12, 2010 and a member until dissolution. Sirocco is also a founding member of TASPAC.
