The Treaty of Dominica (Maltese: It-Trattat ta Dominica), officially titled the Treaty of Dominica on the Status of YeLand, is a settlement treaty that was signed on 20 March 2022, in the Melitian Capital, Dominica, between the Central Government of the Democratic Christian Republic of Melite, represented by the President of Melite, Matthew Tonna, and the Mayor-President of the YeLand Special Administrative Region, on deciding a new name for the SAR and the officialising of its new Coat of Arms. Though the word treaty implies that there was a conflict that had to be solved, this is not the case, as these were personal talks done between the two Melitian leaders, and no territorial exchanges/cessions were done between the parties.
Here Gathered in Dominica
- Vincent Paul, Premier of the Democratic Christian Republic of Melite as an observer;
to reassess the general status of YeLand as a Special Administrative Region. In a short talk held between the two Melitian leaders, the following points came out:
- The name YeLand is not suitable as the name for a region, as it demeans Melite’s prestige, professionality, and seriousness.
- The SAR’s flag serves well and may remain unchanged.
- The SAR requires an adequate coat of arms.
- No problems regarding the administration of the SAR were found, and can be considered as functioning perfectly.
