Thanks. I will reply when I have more time in
Norwich next week. The IPCC meeting is progressing
very slowly and we are likely in for some evening
sessions today and tomorrow.
The Malaysian delegate here is Wan Azli, so I've
let him know you have passed and also had some
conversations with him.
In the meantime, best regards and more next week.
