    I am happy that there is all this beauty and cooperation. There has been a great development and remarkable and important activity, and a convergence of ideas within the new transitional society. Despite the different names for the different movements, the noble goal remains one, only the cooperation remains more and the creation of wonderful deliberate societies in every suitable place. Thanks and gratitude
