They will be available in the language received, as soon as feasible after receipt (except over weekends).

Additional statements may be posted during the actual sessions on 26 and 27 August, including on the chat. However, they may not be fully captured immediately in the main summary points read out, but may be added, where appropriate, at a later stage.
