The company has agencies in all parts of Africa.

We've decided to entrust you with the sole agency for cars.

We'll leave aside the problem of agency until next week.

We're not prepared to take the agency into consideration for the time being.

We won't consider agency in your market at present.

We have to decline your proposal of acting as our sole agency.

I think it premature for us to discuss the question of agency.

I am here today to apply for the sole agency of your product in our local market.

I propose a sole agency agreement for bicycles for a period of 3 years.

Your application for sole agency is now under our careful consideration.

When do you expect to sign the agency agreement?

The agency agreement has been drawn up for the period of one year.

I want to sign a sole agency agreement with you on this item for a period of 2 years.

The agency agreement was made out with great care and we have found no loopholes in it.

I hope we can see eye to eye about the other terms of the agency then.

We wonder whether we may conclude a long term agency contract with you.

Our agency agreement calls for a timely market report.

Since the agency agreement was signed, your turnover has amounted to $500.

I hope you'll spare no efforts to promote the sale of our products so as to pave the way for renewing the agency agreement when it expires at the end of this year.

We can renew the agreement of agency on its expiry.

I've come again to renew our sole agency agreement for another 3 years.

This is to inform you that by mutual consent, the agency contract with …… will cease to exist at the end of ……. Therefore, from the beginning of ……, we welcome your direct inquiries to our office.

The head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency says the Iranian government has agreed to give his inspectors access to what had been an off limits military site where the United States believes the country may be developing a nuclear weapon.

For months, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been denied access by Iran to the Parchin military complex, a site that the United States suspects Tehran may be using to develop nuclear weapons.

There has been no comment from Iran. But such a visit would mark the latest twist in the IAEA's long dealings with Iran over its suspected nuclear weapons program. The U.N. agency has not found hard evidence proving the country is working to produce nuclear weapons. But Tehran has acknowledged that it hid critical aspects of its civilian nuclear program for nearly two decades even though it insists all such programs are intended to produce electricity.

"If you give money, even if it is a small amount of money, it will aggregate up," the former president said. "They will send it to the aid agencies on the ground and then they will spend it right there for what is most needed. And you won't have to worry about the cost and the time delay of physically getting other things overseas."

On the civilian side, U.S. Agency for International Development Assistant Administrator James Kunder said 135 officials of the aid agency are now in affected areas, assessing how best to allocate the $350 million in earthquake and tsunami aid pledged by the Bush administration.

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has sent more than 20 disaster experts to stricken countries to assess their needs. The U.S. military's Pacific Command is also responding, dispatching nine patrol planes to the region to assist in search and rescue operations. Twelve U.S. military cargo planes have been sent to transport relief supplies.

The Bush administration says it continues to believe there should be term limits for top U.N. officials. Among those nearing the end of his second term is the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei.

The news media inquiries were prompted by a Washington Post article that alleged the Bush administration is scrutinizing Mr. ElBaradei's conversations with Iranian diplomats. The article quotes unnamed U.S. government officials as saying calls have been intercepted and transcripts studied in hopes of convincing other countries the nuclear agency chief should retire.

The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, in a report to the American Congress this week, said there are indications North Korea is preparing to test-fire a ballistic missile with a nuclear weapon sized payload that could reach across the Pacific Ocean.

At a news conference the director of the U.S. Agency for International Development Andrew Natsios, just back from a visit to Sudan including Darfur, said pent-up rage among the region's displaced people had reached hitherto-unseen levels, and could flare into ethnic and tribal violence extending beyond Darfur to major cities like Khartoum and Omdurman.

Appearing with the aid agency chief, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Michael Rannenberger said Khartoum leaders have not severed ties with Janaweed leaders as demanded by the international community, as seen in the continued high-profile role in Khartoum by militia figure Sheikh Musa Hilal. "From the outset, what we've told the Sudanese government is that they need to take control of the situation, that there is clearly active government support for what the Janjaweed is doing," he said. "So the government is linked to this. I think the fact that you see Musa Hilal, who is one of the Janjaweed leaders make no mistake about it, running around Khartoum giving interviews to the international press, flying on government helicopters, indicates the degree of collaboration there. And what we have said is that these Janjaweed leaders need to be held accountable."

In an interview with the French news agency, AFP, Wednesday, Secretary of State Colin Powell said he was disappointed that other nations have not followed the United States' lead in terming the Janjaweed-led campaign in Darfur as genocide. Such action he said, would have ratcheted-up the pressure on the Khartoum government to curb the violence.

A senior U.S. official says Iran should comply with a resolution passed by the International Atomic Energy Agency and freeze all uranium-enrichment activities. A major international conference on nuclear security is in progress in Vienna.

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency is calling for North Korea to allow international experts into the country to completely verify that a large cloud recently spotted over the country was not caused by a nuclear explosion.

Iran's rebuff of a European demand to suspend nuclear activities came on the eve of a planned meeting by the International Atomic Energy Agency's board of governors to consider Iran's failure to fully declare its nuclear activities.

In 2003, Iranian officials admitted to the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, that they had been secretly developing nuclear capabilities for more than a decade. The IAEA admonished Tehran and insisted on snap inspections and a halt to its uranium enrichment program. As a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty, the N.P.T., Iran is prohibited from developing a viable nuclear weapons program. Iran says its nuclear program is aimed at providing an alternate source of energy.

Against the backdrop of the war on terrorism, concerns over Iran's secrecy about its nuclear program have accelerated.In June, the U.N.'s nuclear monitoring agency issued a statement deploring Iran's shortcomings in its cooperation with IAEA inspections. The U.S. administration argues that Iran has for too long misled the IAEA about its nuclear program and needs tougher action that only the United Nations Security Council could deliver. Iran expert Ray Takeyh of the Council on Foreign Relations warns that achieving a consensus among the permanent members of the Security Council for sanctions would be difficult. "The sanction that would count is an oil embargo," he said. "There's no chance the security council is going to invoke that at a time when China is becoming ever more dependent on Middle East energy supply."

The Bush administration has long held that Iran has a covert nuclear-weapons program. But it has refrained from taking the issue to the U.N. Security Council, hoping that pressure from key European allies, Russia and the International Atomic Energy Agency will persuade Tehran to change course.

The United States said earlier this week that Iran had mounted a direct challenge to the IAEA, the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency. The U.S. statement came after diplomats in Vienna said Iran had resumed construction and assembly of uranium-enriching centrifuges.

Use of the second edition of International Classification of Diseases
for Oncology (ICD-O)
For certain morphological types, chapter Ⅱ provides a rather restricted topographical
classification, or none at all. The topography codes of ICD-O use for all neoplasms
essentially the same three-and four-character categories that chapter Ⅱ uses for
malignant neoplasms (C00-C77,C80), thus providing increased specificity of site for other
neoplasms (malignant secondary (metastatic), benign, in situ and uncertain or unknown).
It is therefore recommended that agencies interested in identifying both the site and
morphology of tumours, e.g. cancer registries, cancer hospitals, pathology departments and
other agencies specializing in cancer, use ICD-O.
