Spanish President joins the IRWF

Mr. Baruch Tenembaum
The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation
New York

Dear Mr. Tenembaum

I thank you for your letter inviting me to be part of the Honorary Board of the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation over which you preside. I am well aware of the activities of the Foundation and the endeavor that is made towards peace, solidarity and dialogue as well as the understanding between cultures and religions.

It will be a pleasure for me to be part of the Honorary Committee of the IRWF, thus becoming the first President of a Spanish government to be incorporated in this organization.

Warm Regards,
José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero
President of the Government of Spain
