1. (SBU) We presented proposed Consequence Management MOU

promised to review the text and bring it to the attention of
Deputy Director General Ahmet Gun and other officials when
they return from vacation. We stressed the voluntary nature
of the MOU, which would provide a practical vehicle for
ensuring smooth cooperation before and during a catastrophic
WMD event.

useful.
