SUBJECT: TURKEY: DEMARCHE ON FOOD SECURITY DELIVERED

REF: STATE 93894

1. We delivered reftel invitation and draft statement to
Ibrahim Yagli, Head of Department at MFA's Office of
Multilateral Economic Affairs. He indicated that Turkey is
considering the invitation and will decide on an appropriate
representative to send, but no final decision has been made.

2. On the broader topic of food security, Yagli referenced a
recent meeting in Washington between MFA D/US Selim Kuneralp
and Treasury Undersecretary-Designate for International
Affairs Lael Brainard, noting that Turkey fully supports the
activities of the FAO office based in Turkey but that it is
still evaluating how it can best contribute in other ways to
global food security.

3. We also raised food security issues with Treasury
Undersecretary Ibrahim Canakci, who said the GOT was still
consulting internally on the food security agenda,
particularly on the proposed trust funds, and had not yet
decided its position.
