delegation at the Initial Partners meeting in Rabat. Hilale
confirmed that Morocco would attend the Ankara meeting but
was not sure yet who would go. He did not think they would
be able to provide any response on activities until after
December 18, but would endeavor to provide something as soon
as possible, certainly before the second deadline. Hilale
asked whether the roster of partners in Ankara would be the
same as in Rabat; the Russian Ambassador replied in the
affirmative.

2. (SBU) Polcouns reviewed points with MFA IO Director Nasser
Bourita December 15. Bourita confirmed that Morocco would
attend. He asked specifically whether any other countries
than those at the Rabat meeting would be invited at this
stage. He appreciated receipt of demarche but regretted that
they had not yet received an invitation from Turkey.

3. (SBU) Turkish Embassy representatives later told us they
had received no information on the Ankara conference, nor any
invitation to pass to the Moroccans.

4. (U) Embassy POC for the Ankara meeting will be POLMILOFF
Marcel Martinez. Martinez is on leave until January 8; in
his absence any questions will be handled by POL staff.
