1. (U) As part of Embassy Ankara's ongoing efforts to focus
GOT officials on trafficking in persons (TIP), we discussed
the talking points contained in reftels A, B and C, and
particularly the agenda described in reftel B, with Head of
Illegal Migration Hayati Soysal. A member of the GOT's
National Task Force to Combat Trafficking, Soysal is the
MFA's designated representative regarding this issue.



2. (U) Soysal is not aware that the GOT MOJ (Ministry of
Justice) received an invitation to attend the December 11-12
meeting in SaM (Serbia and Montenegro), but confirmed that he
would send copies of the talking points to the MOJ. Although
acknowledging the importance of this meeting to Turkey's TIP
efforts, Soysal said end of year GOT fiscal constraints would
likely prevent Turkey from sending a prosecutor to this
meeting. He was certain that an Embassy notetaker would be
present at the meeting. Soysal noted the National Task Force
does not have its own budget, but relies on the willingness
of Task Force members from various ministries to support its
programs.



3. (U) We will continue to encourage GOT officials to name a
prosecutor who is able to attend the December 11-12 meeting
in SaM before EUR/ACE's November 18 deadline.
