She laid out how they were before and how they are now, and I really consider that, personally, I’m not interested in how they were before, what I want to know is how they are now, because now that I’m on this mission, I’m for the answers to the demand.”

He mentioned that he asked the official 2 questions and a suggestion, “and she didn’t answer any of them so I’m not satisfied, that’s why I didn’t appear in the photo, because for me it was not a fruitful meeting.”
