SUBJECT: DELIVERY OF DEMARCHE ON POTENTIAL PAKISTAN DONORS
CONFERENCE

REF: SECSTATE 129615

1. (U) Sensitive but unclassified. Not for internet
distribution.

2. (SBU) Econ counselor delivered reftel talking points
December 11 to Babur Girgen, Head of the Afghan-Pakistan
Department at MFA. Girgen said having a fixed date for the
conference was the most important factor to ensure the
participation of the Turkish Foreign Minister. The Turkish
Embassy in Washington had informed MFA early last week that
the conference was being rescheduled to the week of January
12, but on Friday December 5 reported that it was being
postponed until February. The lack of a confirmed date makes
it impossible to put the conference on the Minister's travel
schedule.

3. (SBU) Girgen said the GOT has not yet decided whether it
would make a pledge at the donors conference or what amount
it might pledge. No decision is likely until a conference
date is set.
