We have made progress in many areas. The areas we are talking is that of implementation and the consequential adjustment; that is the only subject matter that is under consideration and that is the subject matter we are trying to conclude and ensure that there is an agreement and then we can share with you.

We should work on the basis of information that is credible and we will be able to give you that information at the appropriate time.Ayuba Wabba –
