We will take steps, we have already spoken with the office demobilized military to see how we will launch an appeal so that really this is starting to be done, to allow everyone back in their homes, free camps in calm, in a formula that will allow everyone to be happy with the final solution that we will find next week [...]

There is a Commission that was set up who must issue a final decision on the question of the new public force, so I think it is very clear. That's why we do a lot of dialogue, we talk, we observe, we are exploring several options, you will see very soon, we will find a final solution to this problem..."
