1. (SBU) Yonca Ozceri, head of the Human Rights Department at
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told us November 17 that
Turkey would "act in the way it acted in previous years" on
the UNGA Third Committee resolution on Iran. (Note: It chose
to be absent during the 2008 vote. End Note). He said that
Turkey is a co-sponsor of the Burma and DPRK resolutions, and
will thus provide support for them. Ozceri indicated that
Turkey's position had not changed since receiving the
information in REF B.
