We thank you for your mail concerning your next congress. It is an important event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of your party. As you note 1920 has historical significance for the revolutionary movement and our party will also celebrate this event with a political initiative in Paris in November. As you know, we are working to build the revolutionary party that the working class in France needs and we attach great importance to the solidarity of internationalist struggle.
We wish you fruitful work allowing the strengthening of your party and we hope that solid links can be forged between our two organizations.
