JIMENA / San Pablo The President of the Junta Municipal de Distrito, Andrés Beffa, issued an invitation to the Royal Household a few weeks ago, in the hope that a member of the Royal Family might attend the 10th edition of the Talleres por la Paz (Workshops for Peace, we call them) next year. The invitation was politely declined "for reasons of planning" over the signature of María Sáenz de Heredia, head of the Household's Planning Cabinet. Nevertheless, His Majesty sends "cordial greetings to the residents of San Pablo and the participants in the Workshops." It will be remembered that Federico Mayor Zaragoza, who headed UNESCO for ten years, did accept the invitation to attend the event.
