    I was very much eager to attend His Excellency Ambassador Rasool’s lecture. I am sorry, because of another engagement that I was committed to I had to miss the opportunity. Is it possible to have a copy of Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool’s talk? I would be happy to purchase any publication which could print the Ambassador’s speech. Or if necessary, I would be happy to pay for the cost of coping the speech.
