And on our side, you know we have disagreements as well, human rights, which we raise in all of our dialogues, is one that we are continuing to work on. But as our mechanism grows stronger, as our engagement intensifies and sustains, the more confident we become that we can speak freely on critical issues without endangering the future of the relationship.
We have become able to talk about everything. And whether it is dealing with the new leadership in Pyongyang and ensuring the security and stability of the Korean peninsula, or our efforts to work together to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, or to try to deal with the regional challenges of Sudan and South Sudan, or the difficult situation in Syria, we have made progress in many areas.
President Obama sends you his very warmest personal wishes, and on his behalf we want to express our appreciation for the excellent cooperation and outcomes of this fourth meeting.
