1. Ag Counselor delivered reftel talking points to Selma
Ayture at the External Relations Division at the Ministry of
Agricultural and Rural Affairs (MARA) on Nov. 25. She
replied that they were aware of the initiative but said there
had been no coordinated discussion within the ministry. She
also noted that no other G-8 government had raised the issue
with them and suggested that an official reaction would be
hastened by delivering the talking points in an official
letter to MARA Minister Eker. Ag Counselor will prepare and
deliver such a letter.

2. We scheduled an appointment on Nov. 25 to meet with the
MFA Office of Multilateral Economic Affairs on the GPAF
proposal, but the responsible MFA interlocutor missed the
appointment due to illness. Post will reschedule the meeting
and report on any response either from MFA or MARA.
