Begin text.

Dear Mr. Robinson

I am writing you with regards to the devastating fires, which
are currently affecting California.

In these difficult moments the Catalan Government would wish to
express its solidarity and sympathy to all the American people
and especially to those who have had to leave their homes behind.

Yours truly,

Josep-Lluis Carod-Rovira

End text.

2. (U) Comment: Catalonia has developed a strong relationship
with and fondness for all things California, and this note is a
true expression of that sentiment. The Parliament sent a
delegation to visit the state several years ago and many still
rave about it and are proud of the many similarities between the
region and the state. End Comment.
