Progress was made in one specific area of negotiations between doctors and the Finance Ministry Sunday night, Army Radio reported.

The two sides reportedly agreed to shorten the duty shifts of medical interns from 26 to 18-hour shifts. Also on Sunday, for the first time in two months, both sides noted that the negotiation session had been positive, saying that it brought hope that an agreement would be signed shortly.
