TAGS: AORC UNGA UNGA TU
SUBJECT: 64TH UNGA: FIFTH COMMITTEE - TURKISH JIU CANDIDATE

REF: SECSTATE 105347

1. (SBU) As requested REFTEL, on October 13, we contacted
the International Affairs section of the Turkish Ministry of
Foreign Affairs (MFA) to discuss Cihan Terzi, their candidate
for the Joint Inspection Unit (JIU). Terzi is an incumbent
in this position, serving as an Inspector for the JIU since
2006. MFA First Secretary Turhan Dilmac noted that Terzi has
enjoyed a successful term and is viewed as extremely
qualified for the position thanks to his background in
finance. He said Terzi's accomplishments during his first
term include a review of the working capital fund in the
World Meteorological Organization, a review of the national
competitive recruitment examination, and the drafting of a
wide swath of reports, notes, and management letters.

2. (SBU) According to a curriculum vitae provided by the
MFA, Terzi previously served as a Financial Counselor at the
Permanent Mission of Turkey to the United Nations
(2002-2005); as Head of Department, General Directorate of
Revenues for the Ministry of Finance (1997-2002); and as
Inspector, Tax Inspection Board of the Ministry of Finance
(1985-1997). Dilmac emphasized that Terzi is well-respected
by his colleagues at the UN and within the Ministry of
Finance in Turkey. Dilmac voiced no concerns about the
general fitness of the candidate and provided no
disqualifying information. When asked, Dilmac indicated that
the French candidate for this position, Gerard Biraud, is
also an incumbent but that the Spanish candidate (Jose
Ferrer) is largely unknown to him.
