PNND extends you a big thank you for your efforts in 2014 for nuclear disarmament, and a very warm greeting for 2015. We hope that you have had a relaxing break over the holiday period, and are re-invigorated and re-inspired for the new year.
It is a great pleasure to contact you again in order to ask if the next Forum on October 2015 will take place as you told me in Astana last year. This question is because I am receiving invitations and appointments for that date and need to program my agenda. There are also some people that I will invite to the Forum if it take place and you agree.
wonderful to hear from you and thank you so much for your warm wishes for the New Year. Also your idea sounds possible, it would need some talks with the franciscan sisters here in the monastery. We have nice guest rooms in the monastery shelter and also meeting rooms are available. Our nature around is like paradise, see a few pictures enclosed.
after celebrating the solstice on the 21st December and then the 12 rough nights after the celtic tradition, also some quite moments in the monastery chappel and church where we live. I am sending you enclosed my welcome for the New Year 2015, made on the 31st December during wonderful snowing days here in Switzerland...
as we just noted a very important meeting between the leader of Russia, Germany, France and Ucraine will take place in ASTANA on january 15.th! We are totally convinced, that the first stepp within a proper solution to stabilize UCRAINE will be to follow Kasachstans very succesfull "Roundtable-Solution" - which has been initiated by President N. Nasarbajew more than 20 Years ago.
I congratulate you on the upcoming holidays - Christmas and New Year!
