REF: SECSTATE 229032




1. (U) Classified by Acting Pol-Mil Counselor Harry Kamian.
Reasons 1.5 (b) and (d).




2. (C) On August 8, polmiloff passed reftel paper to Omur
Yurdakul, First Secretary in the MFA's Disarmament
Department. Yurdakul indicated that the GOT would likely
support all three reftel proposals at the MTCR plenary.
Yurdakul also noted that the GOT is working to implement
catch-all controls officially, but that it already, in
practice, acts as if such controls are on the books.




3. (U) Yurdakul said that the head of the Turkish delegation
to the MTCR plenary will be the Turkish Ambassador to
Argentina. Yurdakul will attend for the MFA. Five other
officials from Ankara will also attend: two from the Turkish
General Staff, one from the Ministry of National Defense, one
from the Undersecretariat of Foreign Trade, and one from the
Customs department.
