I think we can conclude from the previous discussions that, at least for the time being, the Government, I continue to be very interested in working in this format. This is a good opportunity to keep in touch and interact with wider scope of views, which is very important for considering when making decisions in the future. Because there are issues the responsibility for making decisions over which, of course, lies on the shouldersof the Government, the majority, but on the other hand, it is very important to familiarize with the views that exist in the political circles outside the Government, the parliamentary majority and outside the parliament.
I wish us successful and productive work."
