SUBJECT: TURKISH RESPONSE ON TAIWAN'S PARTICIPATION IN THE
OECD

REF: STATE 20058

1. (SBU) On March 19, we shared reftel information and
points with Ministry of Foreign Affairs Department Head for
Multilateral Economic Affairs Serap Ozcoskun. She agreed to
share reftel points with the Turkish mission to the OECD.
She noted the information has already been discussed in an
informal reflection group, and the matter remains undecided
in the OECD. She added that most OECD members support
continued practices outlined in the 1995 framework letters
(NFI) and think it is appropriate for the OECD to follow
international norms and ways to treat Taiwan's participation
in the OECD. She noted that the OECD Secretary General plans
to travel to China next week. If the Chinese Government
opens reftel issue, she said he plans to respond by referring
the matter to the OECD Council. She expressed appreciation
for the notification and will follow up with us in the future
as appropriate.
