10:00:36 Soundbite by Janez Potočnik (in ENGLISH): We are supporting that initiative, of course, because we think it is a good one. It is quite innovative. It is on the global level and it is encouraging not only the business but also the other stakeholders from governments to civil society that they would join and that they will push the process headed and I think it is really something that it was needed and that is why we are pretty much committed to help both United Nations' institutions, environmental and industrial, who are behind it to make this concept really come through the implementation and deliver the results. That is why it was established. 00:00:41

10:01:55 Soundbite by Janez Potočnik (in ENGLISH): We all expected today the new proposal which came just few minutes ago from the Brazilian host. We believe that things are moving headed and we especially encouraged also through the meetings we have had with delegations. How seriously and importantly there are seeing our positive attitude to negotiations and also the contribution we are giving with focus and clear ambition to the process. I think that it is important and that gives kind of reassurance that at the end of the day we will see what we came to see, coming in Rio. 00:00:40

10:02:57 Soundbite by Janez Potočnik (in ENGLISH ): It is a little walk. Step by step, the things will now speed up in the next two-three days because the wish of our host is that, before the leaders of the countries gather here in Rio, we would come to an agreement. 00:00:15
