Hon. Robert Blake,

Thank you for your reply. We agree with all the points raised in your speech to the Foundation of Co-Existence.

However, we would add one caviar to your commentary namely, we welcome the forming of a Truth and Reconciliation commission, and that could be a major catharsis for the people of all sides of the dispute.

We wish you all the very best and see you in the States when you take-up your new appointment.

Warm regards,

C.K. Fernando
