SUBJECT: IRAQ: TURKEY TO TRAIN IRAQI DIPLOMATS


We learned March 5 from Patriotic Union of Kurdistan Ankara
rep Bahros Galali that Turkey will train Iraqi diplomats from
May-June 2004 and that the Iraqi MFA had selected a list of
Iraqi participants. Turkish MFA Iraq deskoff Ferhat Alkan
confirmed this information, saying that the Turkish MFA's
training academy will organize the course for 20 Iraqi
diplomats and had proposed to the Iraqi MFA that the course
run May 3-June 11. Alkan promised to provide more details in
the coming days. Comment: This is an excellent opportunity
to build bridges between Turkey and Iraq, and is exactly the
type of cooperation we have been encouraging between these
two neighbors.
