Dear all,

At the GAC session at ICANN61 today, the representative of Brazil reported on the  moves to solve the .amazon issue after  Amazon  presented its compromise proposal at ICANN60.   Soon after, the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (OCTA) decided to consider Amazon's proposal. An OCTA working group asked Amazon additional questions,  and the replies were received on 5 March. They are now being analyzed by the working  group, which  hopes to to present its report to OCTA before mid-April.

OCTA consists of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela.

The Board had inquired whether the GAC  wanted to give it any additional information on the .amazon matter. In view of the ongoing contacts  between OCTA goverments and Amazon, the GAC decided to reply  that  at this time it has none.

So there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel.
