1. (SBU) We presented proposed Consequence Management MOU
text (ref a) to Bora Kerimoglu, Section Chief in the MFA Arms
Control and Disarmament Department, on July 31. Kerimoglu
promised to review the text and bring it to the attention of
Deputy Director General Ahmet Gun and other officials when
they return from vacation. We stressed the voluntary nature
of the MOU, which would provide a practical vehicle for
ensuring smooth cooperation before and during a catastrophic
WMD event.

2. (U) We will follow up with DDG Gun and ascertain whether
and when a visit from ISN/WMDT representatives would be
useful.
