JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - The chairman of South Africa's Adcock Ingram (AIPJ.J) said on Wednesday discussions with South Africa's government over a proposed 12.6 billion rand ($1.3 billion) takeover from Chile's CFR CFR.SN have gone "extremely well".

The South African government has in the past scuppered big cross-border deals, but Chairman Khotso Mokhele told a conference call talks with the government so far had gone well.
