I was very regreted to hear that news about your colleague, who I really respect and we become friends while he was viziting Borduria. What happened really touched not only your organisation but me personally as well, because I may suppose that he also was asked questions about my personality and so.
Unfgortunately I was not in Borduria that days and I told your colleague about long time ago, I am in Western Europe now.
As soon as I arrive I am going to take an adequate measures and have very seriouse discussions on this matter with my authorities, especially with Security Service. Please accept my apologisez. I really hope that this outreageous fact would not complicate our very good realtions. With best regards…
So that’s a relief.
[edited to add:] Obviously a) he is all right b) he is aware of the political stakes in Borduria and c) he was clever enough to read my “message of protest” for what I really meant to say in it.
