WILSON: I have this (ui) this, this (ui).
MIMOTO: With, uh, name of the participants for the meeting...
MIMOTO: would be recorded...
MIMOTO: So uh, if we use this, uh, plenary meeting as a cover, then our name is
on the, uh, minutes of the meeting.
CHAUDRET: As it is here.
MIMOTO: Many commercial people and some technical people.
MIMOTO: And we have to really discuss the real matter.

WILSON: That's right.
MIMOTO: Uh, but our name will-will be on.

WILSON: What you're doing, uh, early terms is you're setting up a brand new
Association. That's what you're doing. So it's a perfect cover. Now,
2 years down the road or a y-year down the road or 9 months down
the road, you'll admit you don't want it, but that kinda cover. But right
now, it's perfect cover. It's perfect.
