Following discussions between NP A/S Wolf and Ambassador
Edelman, and with the abolition of the ONW POLAD position in
July 2004, Embassy Ankara is able to support NP's request to
establish an EXBS Program Advisor position. The advisor will
be integrated into the political-military affairs section,
and assume responsibility for other nonproliferation issues
in addition to their EXBS duties. Due to severe space
limitations, Embassy Ankara will not be able to support the
establishment of a local contract national (LCN) position to
provide administrative support to the EXBS advisor. However,
the EXBS advisor will be able to contract for administrative
and logistical assistance on the local economy as needs arise.
