It is really wonderful to hear this. Whether he gets it or not, it is so good to know that someone has put so much effort into this troubled area and has been successful enough to bring about some peace in the region.
We all pray that he gets it.

What some Italian magazine knows, we don't! Its actually the job of the Government to do all these things - Where at all is it? Oh, negotiating black money retention plans!
