“We need to talk about it again in six weeks, maybe we don’t because everything is fine," he said. "This would be the best case, then there is a worse case and some shades of grey in between. 

"We have to wait. It doesn’t help if we now speak about worst case scenarios because there is a best case scenario. The decision is made, the next weeks will give direction. If there are updates we will give you updates but this is what we have now.”
