1 October 2015 A.D. GAFCON reply to Archbishop of Canterbury. A dead letter of invitation?



1 October 2015 A.D. GAFCON reply to Archbishop of Canterbury. A dead letter of invitation?
Chilton, John. “Gafcon issues reply to ABC’s invitation to meeting of primates.” Episcopal Café. 17 Sept 2015. http://www.episcopalcafe.com/gafcon-issues-reply-to-abcs-invitation-to-meeting-of-primates/. Accessed 1 Oct 2015.
Key paragraph:

Consistent with this position, they [the Gafcon primates] have previously advised the Archbishop of Canterbury that they would not attend any meeting at which The Episcopal Church of the United States or the Anglican Church of Canada were represented, nor would they attend any meeting from which the Anglican Church in North America was excluded.
Read it all.

What do you make of this? Is the meeting a dead letter?

Foley Beach, the Primate of ACNA, wrote recently,

If my fellow GAFCON Primates accept the invitation, and I am expecting that they will, then I have also pledged to attend.
