Dear Mr. Minister:

After a long and extremely rewarding career with the Foreign
Service, I will retire from the U.S. government on December
19. It has been a pleasure to work with you to advance our
bilateral relations.

Thank you for your contribution to the advancement of
military cooperation between the Tunisian Republic and the
United States of America. The twenty-third U.S.-Tunisia
Joint Military Commission meetings in May of this year were
successful due in large part to your leadership and to the
respect we share for one another.

It is my sincere hope that you, your family, and the people
of Tunisia experience health, happiness, and prosperity, now
and in the years ahead.

Sincerely,

David Welch
