Subject:Official UFP Diplomatic Statement.

This is an official statement regarding the recent CU-UFP war.
  .
The United Federation of Planets wishes to acknowledge it's share of the responsibility in the recent troubles with the Cardassian Union. We believe the problem was exacerbated by communications breakdowns within and between our governmental and diplomatic departments, and also between the United Federation of Planets and other Empires. We have since undergone a major reshuffle in both departments, and we are confident that no such incident will occur in the future.

Ambassador Dae E. Connor,
United Federation of Planets.
