(In progress.) And some of you have come up here to see me off. These people deserve a little bit of a break, Mr. Ambassador. They have done a terrific job. (Applause.) So, on behalf of President Obama and the American people, I thank you for helping us to realize the promise of the U.S.-Angolan relationship. It is exciting for me to be here, almost on the ground floor of building that relationship. And I look forward to deepening and strengthening it with your help. Thank you all very much.
