    TRANSCRIPT: WILSON: "THE TALKS HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY FRIENDLY AND CORDIAL. NO QUESTIONS THAT WE COULD THINK OF THAT WERE RELEVANT WERE MISSED FROM OUR DISCUSSIONS OR MADE LIGHT OF. I BELIEVE IT IS RIGHT TO SAY THAT OUR HOSTS WERE IMPRESSED WITH THE DEPTH OF PURPOSE THAT WE HAVE SHOWN IN EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE SAID. WE DID NOT COME HERE ASKING THEM TO SAY 'YES' OR 'NO' TO ANY PARTICULAR QUESTION BECAUSE OF COURSE THIS IS ONE OF SIX VISITS AND IT WAS ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD THE SIX GOVERNMENTS OF THE COMMUNITY WOULD NATURALLY WISH TO CONSULT TOGETHER ON THE ISSUE RAISED BY THESE VISITS."
