    I think the invitation is to the Heads of States, and they should not split that invitation to others. Those outside the invitees are only on-lookers.

    Well said.

    Yes, agree with GL this time. Viggy missed a good opportunity to build the relationship by accepting the invite even as a token of goodwill.
