E.O. 12958: N/A

REF: A. STATE 107112
B. ANKARA 1675

PolMilOff faxed May 14 the proposed dip note containing
Washington's approved CFE Host Country Agreement text to MFA
Disarmament Head of Department Bulent Meric. On June 3 Meric
said the Turkish interagency was reviewing the text, and he
hoped to get back to the Embassy in the next couple of weeks.
PolMilOff reminded Meric that the latest version was the
Turkish proposal and expressed hope that a comparison of the
texts would not take much longer. Meric concurred but
wondered aloud if the agreement would require Parliamentary
approval once the Embassy sent the official dip note; he said
he would have to check into it.
