King Khanid II arrives in Tash-Murkon Prime, met by Catiz Tash-Murkon

Tash-Murkon Prime - King Khanid II arrived in Tash-Murkon Prime earlier today along with the Khanid Royal 1st Fleet and an honor guard of Imperial Navy warships. News of the arrival came hours after the 1st Fleet unexpectedly crossed into Imperial space and was met by an Amarr Navy escort force.

King Khanid was met in person by Lady Catiz Tash-Murkon, Royal Heir of the Tash-Murkon Family. Both King and Heir were accompanied by throngs of dignitaries and officials. The two groups quickly retired to private quarters without addressing the media.

A representative of the Tash-Murkon Family released a brief statement, saying only that "the arrival of King Khanid II was anticipated" and that the meeting between Catiz Tash-Murkon and King Khanid "marks the beginning of a new era for the Amarr Empire." The Tash-Murkon Family has been engaging in extended diplomatic negotiations - mostly centered around trade agreements - with the Kingdom and its corporations over the past several months.

The 1st Fleet remains in Tash-Murkon Prime, while their Amarr Navy escort has returned to its normal duties patrolling the Tash-Murkon/Khanid border.
