SUBJECT: GOA CONSIDERING EXTENSION OF INTERNATIONAL POLICE
TRAINERS

REF: SECSTATE 72189

1. (U) In an April 22 meeting, Poloff delivered reftel
demarche to Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and
Trade (DFAT) Iraq Task Force Director Jeremy Bruer and
Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) Iraq
Program Manager Katherine Krilov. Krilov indicated that
Australia had committed its two police trainers at the Jordan
International Police Training Center (JIPTC) through March
2006 and would need to get approval at the ministerial level
for any increase or extension of the GOA's police instructor
contribution.

2. (U) Bruer and Krilov emphasized that the GOA was
committed to reconstruction efforts in Iraq, but that any
further contribution would need to be balanced with
Australia's police commitments in Asia and the Pacific.
(NOTE: Krilov said the GOA had received recent requests for
more Australian police in East Timor, Papua New Guinea, and
the Solomon Islands. End Note.) Krilov asked if we could
provide more information on why Iraq police training at the
JIPTC had been extended and if the decision was related to
fulfilling the training goal of 135,000 Iraqi police by 2006.
