    Syntactically, there must be some kind of conjunction between 15:12 and we decided to indicate the connection between the two statements. Or something like As or Although before initial he. Commented Jul 9 at 16:24
  • You could use a semicolon. // 'At' makes more sense as 'until' seems to imply that he did turn up before the decision to close the meeting was taken. Better would be 'As he had not arrived by 15:10, we decided to conclude the discussion.' Commented Jul 9 at 16:44
  • Or you could have "He did not arrive. At 15:12 we decided to conclude the discussion."
