Negotiations focused on the high rejection rate, disparate treatment of applicants, and recent and pending German court decisions.

In addition, ongoing discussions on this subject with the Ministry of Finance are also taking place.

Coordination with the Government of Israel is taking place.

Representations on this issue are also being made by U.S. Congressional representatives.
