Dear Sirs,

I am honored and touched to receive your warm congratulations on my rewarding the National Order of the Legion of Honour. I must state, however, that it is our common achievement for many of these projects would not have been realized without support and cooperation of FIDE and its top management.

I am extremely appreciative of the chance to work with all of you and hope to continue our cooperation to promote chess globally.
