Dear colleagues,

Even if I'll not be physically in Prague, I fully support Mark proposition to take time for discussion.
I think that as we are representing our individuals govs in the GAC - ICANN, the same govs are taking part on ITU discussions and Work process, we can play a key role by highlighting views from various perspectives and puting a passerelle between concepts. 

I'd be happy to attend remotly to the discussions.

Kind regards

Dear all,

I fully support Mark's proposal to take it further and set aside some  
time for a deeper discussion on this matter.
