1. (C) Econoff delivered reftel points concerning extension
of Libya sanctions to Kemal Tuzun, MFA's head of department
for the Middle East and North Africa, on January 12. Tuzun
stated that the GOT welcomed recent positive steps taken by
Libya in a number of areas, especially the commitment to
eliminate WMD programs. Turkey believes other states should
encourage the GOL to continue on the path of integration with
the international community. Tuzun offered no comment on
U.S. sanctions.



2. (SBU) MFA said that Turkey is eager to boost trade with
Libya. Tuzun said that two-way trade amounted to USD 970
million (of which USD 750 was exports from Libya) in 2002,
and had already reached that level in the first nine months
of 2003. A Joint Economic Committee meeting will be held
later this year.
