Dear Mr. Minister:
Thank you for your invitation to the G8/Outreach Foreign

does not permit me to attend this important meeting.
Under Secretary of State Reuben Jeffery, who serves as the G8
Foreign Affairs Sous-Sherpa and is the Department of State's
principal representative on energy issues, will participate in
I am confident the meeting will successfully contribute to the

look forward to hearing results of the meeting.
