declared by the US Government and Congress as genocide, is not only
proud of you and of the people of the United States of America, but
its also confident and hopeful that your administration would
immediately embark to engage itself effectively in expediting the
resolution of their tragedy and restoration of peace, security and

We look forward for further cooperation and understanding.
Forward ever, backward never. Struggle continue

Yours Sincerely,
