The friendly villagers were satisfied with the 'conclusion',  for now!
They just will be taken for a many months 'ride' with no Satisfactory outcome.
But who than lives, who care that time.. In another non saying meeting.
And so on.
"We resolve". "Take time to find a solution", bla, bla.
Poor thai people who believe now that thai officials nonsense talk.
