SUBJECT: END OF IRAQI TRAINING MISSION AT JIPTC

REF: SECSTATE 112485

(U) PolChief informed Anu Laamanen-Ryter, Office Director
of the Finnish MFA's Civilian Crisis Management (CCM) Unit,
that the Iraqi Training mission at JIPTC would end August
22, and thanked her for Finland's participation over the
years. At its peak, Finland had 10 police trainers at the
JIPTC, a significant contribution for a small nation with
many other CCM obligations worldwide. That commitment was
reduced steadily over the course of 2007 to its current
level of 2 trainers, but the GOF had consistently indicated
that it would be willing send more trainers if funding
became available. Laamanen-Ryter called the closing of the
JIPTC "a pity," but reiterated her view that Finland's
police trainers had had an outstanding experience with the
mission.
