The Republic is a Galactic Power founded to serve and protect the People of the Galaxy.
*A senate spokesman prepares to make an announcement to the press. For hours now the Senate have talked about if the Federation should take action against the further expansion into Neutral space. After political pressure from thousands of neutral systems for them to take some form of action, the Senate had convened to discuss the Mandalorian expansions.
The Senator brought with him a pad with all of the relevant information that he needed to give.
"Let it first be known, that the Senate does not, nor ever will approve of such behavior against a neutral sector, whose sovereignty should be respected and protected. However, the Federation cannot risk diverting military assets and personal to a sector that is not a member of the Federation. Due to the still very real threat of the Empire and the Sith, whom we are still at war with."
The spokesman is interrupted by the press as they all starting asking questions. After he manages to get them to hold off for a little while, he continues;
"However this does not mean that the Federation will do nothing, we are prepared to provide humanitarian aid, to ease any suffering that might befall the civilians during the war.
The senate also issues this warning to Federation citizens, anyone who joins the fight against the Mandalorians will not be stopped, it is your right as free sentient beings, but should do so with this in mind. The Federation cannot guarantee release should you be captured, nor will we take responsibility. Federation law, and sovereignty does not exist beyond our space and therefor discourages this kind of action.
I will now take your questions if any."
