,Dear Prof. Vaezpour

I thank you for your kind message. It is indeed very greatly appreciated. Several old friends of IMS also individually contacted me and expressed their gratitude. I was delighted and deeply touched by their kindness. I do hope the political obstacles which block many aspects of our life, including scientific activities, being removed in near future. We, as mathematicians, from any nation, race or ethnicity, and without any reservation should be able to freely meet and collaborate

With warmest regards

Javad Mashreghi
