As a result of ill-health that has afflicted two of its members, the JSC has decided to postpone the meeting to 25 August 2021. This postponement is intended to afford the two members an opportunity to recover from their ailments so as to participate fully in the deliberations. The JSC wishes the two members a speedy recovery.
