SUBJECT: TURKS READY TO SEND POLICE TRAINERS TO JORDAN


1. MFA provided to us March 11 a list of 31 police trainers
that the GOT is preparing to send to the Iraqi police
training facility outside Amman. MFA Deputy Iraq Coordinator
Ethem Tokdemir told us that they could be ready to travel as
early as March 31. While most are general police trainers,
among the group are specialists in VIP protection, ethics,
traffic, crime scene investigation, marksmanship, management,
and social/gender sensitivity. All but two are said to have
English language capabilities; five speak Arabic (the two
non-English-speakers are among these). We have faxed the
list to EUR/SE.


2. In presenting the list, Tokdemir noted that the Turkish
National Police needed copies of the curriculum of the
courses at the center. We suggested that the Turkish Embassy
in Amman approach the training center for this material. He
agreed.
