 Unfortunately yes.  And just as unfortunate, some people do not
yet know or accept that english is the globally recognized international
language.  However the ITU knows, but refuses to recognize reality.
As such the ITU is behaving in a less than realistic way/manner..

  It is a shame.  But not the norm thankfully...

  Is this a question or a statement?  As there was no "?" I can only
assume and/or conclude that it is a statement.  If true, shame on ICANN...

However I do not believe it, even though many of the ICANN BoD
members past and present, including "Board Squatters" have eluded
and been more than a little supportive of the ITU model...

  In conclusion, I can appreciate you sophistry in your responses
