@ Colleen Graffy -- I am so darned proud of you. Have a safe trip.

I hope your family was untouched by the Montecito fires. Scary stuff.

Hi Colleen -- Thanks for sending. International Education Week sounds fantastic. The best of public diplomacy at work. I'll pass a long to our SPP students here at Pepperdine. Cheers!

Hi Ms. Graffy -- As a J.D. I am keenly interested in the foreign relations of the US. Will you be meeting with any of the original signers of the Warsaw Pact? I don't know if any Romanian individuals signed the document. If you do meet any, what would you like to ask them in regard to NATO? Please respond to my EM as well. Thank you.

Hi, Mark -- No plans to meet with any of the original signers of the Warsaw Pact -- not sure who the Romanian signatory was and if they are still alive -- but Monica Dragan here at our Information Resource Center (there is one at every embassy) is going to try and find out.

How about that -- the Director General of the Romanian Diplomatic Institute (whom I met with earlier today -- see my tweet) knew the answer to Mark from Tennessee's question. Gheorghe Gheorghiv Dej was the Romanian signer of Warsaw Pact, and he is no longer alive.
