(Amazing Spider-Man I#322 - BTS) - Terrorists of the ULTIMATUM organization attacked Symkaria's capital city Aniana. They killed innocent people and Vivian, the fiancée of King Stefan. The Prime Minister Klaus Limka also died, slaughtered during the assault by someone else. The Wild Pack and Silver Sable found evidence that linked the murders to the CIA.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#323) - The people of Symkaria were enraged. In the capital city the crowd protested against arriving Ambassador Hawthorne's diplomatic car, while he and Grayson reached the Castle.

   Hawthorne understood the people's grudge, he went to meet the new prime minister Gallatik in order to find a way to calm the harshness arisen between the two governments.

   Prime Minister Gallatik led Ambassador Hawthorne to speak with Silver Sable, who was the person responsible for the security of King Vladimir. Silver Sable explained that the assassination plot was connected to the CIA and to some U.S. companies like the Life Foundation. Spider-Man was present and tried to speak for peace but Hawhtorne did not trust him, considering him a vigilante operating outside legality.

    Later, Captain America arrived to help Symkaria finding the responsible for the murders. The Ambassador and Grayson heard Cap while giving his word that the United States of America were not involved in the plot. Silver Sable believed him, but the nation of Symkaria still wanted revenge.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#323 - BTS) - Later, while Cap, Silver and Spidey attacked the ULTIMATUM base on the Symkarian hills, the actions of the crowd worsened. Ambassador Hawthorne was called back when he received death threats. A war was imminent.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#324 - BTS) - Weil, the leader of the ULTIMATUM cell that attacked Symkaria was captured in New York by Spider-Man and Solo. Sabretooth, Limka's murderer, was apparently killed by Silver Sable.

    Nonetheless, the situation between the USA and Symkaria turned worse. Death squads from Symkaria were ready to hit US officers as retaliation.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#325 - BTS) - Spider-Man discovered the real architect of the plotm was the Red Skull, but he escaped.

    Thanks to the new evidence and the witnesses recovered at the U.S. National Archive, the relations between Symkaria and USA returned to normal.

Alphonse Gallatik

    Gallatik took the place of the prime minister Limka after he was killed.

Gallatik received the Ambassador Hawthorne during the delicate situation ensued after the assassination of princess Vivian and minister Limka.

There were evidence that connected the CIA to both the murders, so Symkaria believed the USA directly involved in the plot.

    Grayson was surprised that the people of Symkaria threw vegetables at the ambassador's car.
