Imperial Minister of the Exterior, Lady Li Naomiai of Sentratera, took the unprecedented step in a lengthy statement of congratulating the Florian people on their elections:
I am very pleased to see the conclusion of the peaceful general elections in the Florian Republic. Their conduct is a testament to the Florian Republic's transition from a warmongering one-party state to a multiparty democracy devoted to peace, friendship and good-neighbourliness. President Adam Cooke took a brave step in bringing about the democratic reforms, and while his party suffered greatly in so doing, his and his party's sacrifice for the democratic evolution of the Florian nation will fondly be remembered by the historians of the future.
I look forward to working with my new Florian counterpart in continuing our fruitful exchanges in sport and culture. Under the International High Commission supervision, I am confident that the full rehabilitation of the Florian Republic will one day be imminent. Rest assured, Florians, the Imperial Government will do its part in securing that day of rehabilitation. We are, as we always have been, your truest friends.
I have carefully followed the elections in the Florian Republic with sincere hope that parties who are fighting for better Floria would surprise me and my government. That didn't happen. I honestly don't see what good have UNPR bring to the Florians and why have the people voted for them again, if elections were even free. That's some unexplainable mess.
In a weekly address to the Nadcraši, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kir Mahn Dasné, was asked by the Amurian House Representative to give a comment on the Florian Election. He said the following:
I wish to state that I am glad for a stable Florian election. Although, I do wish to state the Florians may do something about their policies of domestic concerns, as building football stadiums will not fix this nation's economy on its own. Despite this, I wish the Florian Republic great fortune for the years to come.
