SUBJECT: IRAQ NEIGHBORS PROCESS: MARCH 1-4 ENERGY WORKING
GROUP AND GAS TRILATERAL PROPOSED

REF: SECSTATE 00559

1. (SBU) MFA Energy Department Head Altay and GOT Iraq
Coordinator Celikol told us in separate meetings that the GOI
has agreed to dates for the next meeting of the Neighbors
Process Energy Working Group. The GOT plans to host the
Energy Working Group on March 1 and 2 in Istanbul. The GOT
is proposing that the meeting be followed by a trilateral
(IZ-TU-US) meeting on Iraqi gas March 3 and 4. Celikol
expressed hope that Steve Mann and/or Matt Bryza might be
able to travel to Istanbul to participate.

2. (SBU) We informed MFA that the gas trilateral dates
overlap by one day with the Washington International
Renewable Energy Conference (WIREC) that Secretary Rice will
host March 4-6 (reftel). Altay said he would raise this issue
within MFA and with the Ministry of Energy.
