To: Emperor of Great Sung From: Gur Khan of the Rouran Khanate CC: Liao Monarchy Gur Khan, the leader of the Mongol people of the world, only wants to protect his people. Maybe his message to the Khitans was misinterpreted. We only want the them to cede lands so that they may be apart of the Khanate and be under our protection, as well as prospering from our society. We do think a trade agreement between our nations will benefit the both of us, however Gur Khan is General to no one but the God's. We cannot accept these terms. We are not blackmailing nor will we blackmail the Liao Monarchy. We only ask that they join the Gur Khan, the rightful leader of the Mongol peoples of the world. Also, next time it would be wise not to insult the Khan by calling his people barbarians. We are no longer nomads.
