1. Post was contacted 11/21 by Turkish MFA Coordinator for
Iraq Assistance Ahmet Okcun regarding reftel demarche. Okcun
said he had discussed the issue of police training with MFA
U/S Ziyal. Turkey, he said, would like to participate in the
training of Iraqi police, but would like to do it at the
Turkish police training facility in Diyarbakir. Turkey,
Okcun said, would not participate in the police training in
Jordan, but was looking favorably at the possibility of
sending some police trainers to Iraq as well.

in December and will be available for further discussion of
this issue.
