SUBJECT: TURKEY NOT PLANNING TO HOST PSI OR REGIONAL OEG
MEETING

REF: A. STATE 115935
B. STATE 115948

(SBU) We delivered the September PSI OEG meeting summary (ref
a) to MFA Nonproliferation and Disarmament DDG Ahmet Gun and
his deputy Elif Ulgen on November 3. Drawing on ref b, we
encouraged Turkey to consider hosting a PSI OEG or regional
OEG in the future. Gun noted Turkey has been a leader in
PSI, hosting a large PSI exercise in 2006, and stated that
the GOT would like to see other PSI partners take a more
active role in hosting events. Gun said Turkey has no plans
to host any PSI events on the horizon, but is planning to
conduct a national level exercise in 2009.
