SUBJECT: GLOBAL INITIATIVE EXERCISE PLANNING GROUP DEMARCHE
DELIVERED

REF: STATE 101862

(SBU) We delivered reftel demarche to MFA Deputy Director
General for Disarmament and Nonproliferation Ahmet Gun on
September 25. We acknowledged Turkey's unease about the
Global Initiative given the participation of Cyprus, but
noted that the Exercise Planning Group (EPG) event is a
technical level meeting and that the GOT may find
participating in the workshop regarding the development and
execution of scenario-driven training events useful in
Turkey's efforts to strengthen its national response to
nuclear terrorism. Gun agreed that the event may be useful
for Turkey, and that Turkey may consider sending experts to
the meeting since it is not a political level meeting. He
undertook to pass the information and draft agenda to
potential participants and provide us with any feedback he
receives from them.
