Wan Bajun planned to let the 15,000 Dragon Palace soldiers take a week’s vacation first, so that they could return from Damascus to their respective countries of permanent residence by plane to rest up, and then rearrange their next tasks after a week.
Ye Chen had no problem with his arrangement, so he left him to make his own full arrangements.
Since then, all the important issues in the Middle East had been satisfactorily resolved, and as to how high Wan Breaking Army could take the Ten Thousand Dragon Hall, the future would mainly depend on him.
On the other side of the world, Wei Liang arrived in Washington in a hurry with twenty boxes of Jiu Xuan Zhen Zhen Pills.
After getting off the plane, he immediately contacted the PR company responsible for pulling the strings and made an appointment with the head of the FDA for dinner.
Wei Liang paid US$50,000 for the meal, without promising to solve any problems.
Of the $50,000, the PR firm made $20,000 and the remaining $30,000 went to the head of the FDA.
This kind of thing is a very common grey operation in the United States, in the ambiguous zone between normal and illegal, so it is also a means of generating income for American public officials.
What Wei Liang wanted to do was to push the Jiu Xuan Zhen Zhen Pills to the other side as much as possible during this meal, and then try to convince the other side to try to do a drug test on the Jiu Xuan Zhen Pills, and if it was determined that there were no toxic side effects, they could do a small-scale clinical trial, and that way, they would soon be able to see the effects of the Jiu Xuan Zhen Pills.
Once they are sure that the Jiu Xuan Zai Zai Pill is really effective in treating cancer, they will naturally realise the great value of this medicine and will also increase their awareness and recognition of Jiu Xuan Pharmaceutical.
To minimise the risk, the PR company chose to hold the dinner in a small restaurant they had opened themselves.
Located in the suburbs of Washington, the small restaurant was advertised to the public as a full membership restaurant, so it was only available to its own members and had permanently closed the so-called new member registration channel, just to make it easier for the PR firm to organise and arrange such special meetings.
When Wei Liang arrived at the restaurant, the person in charge of the meeting with him had not yet arrived.
A PR person dressed as a waiter said to him, “Mr Wei, Mr Smith has been delayed by something and will probably take another twenty minutes to arrive, so please sit down for a moment.”
Wei Liang nodded gently, so he sat down first under the other party’s arrangement.
Twenty minutes had passed and the other party still hadn’t appeared.
The public relations officer told him that the other party might take another twenty minutes or so.
Although Wei Liang was a little anxious, he still agreed to do so, but to his surprise, after waiting for an hour and a half, the other party still did not appear.
He waited for two hours before the other party finally arrived.
The public relations officer brought the other party in front of Wei Liang and introduced him, “Mr Wei, this is Mr James Smith.”
The one who was called James Smith was a middle-aged white man in his forties, and when he saw Wei Liang, he said rather embarrassedly, “I am sorry to keep you waiting, Mr Wei, there is something at home that I need to take care of.”
James Smith looked quite a bit worse for wear, his hair was a bit dishevelled, the first button of his shirt had disappeared, leaving only a short thread, and his tie also seemed to have been ripped open and wrapped crookedly inside his suit.
Wei Liang was a little surprised in his heart.
He felt that a man of Smith’s calibre was definitely a member of high society in America, and probably also a member of certain top circles, after all, he had a lot of power in his hands and a high social status.
People like this kind of people, who all regard themselves as gentlemen, so pay great attention to their personal appearance, dressing and behaving with great care, not even a single strand of hair would be messed up, while this James Smith looked like a down and out insurance salesman.
This led Wei Liang to speculate that he should have encountered something difficult.
