1. Turkish press reported July 15-16 that Turkey had decided
to send a 200-man PRT to Takhar, Afghanistan. We contacted

MFA informed us that while no decision has yet been taken,
Turkey is indeed reconsidering its formerly withdrawn
proposal (see reftel) to send a PRT to Takhar and expected to
reach a final decision in the next two weeks. MFA South Asia
