SUBJECT: TURKEY WANTS MORE INFORMATION ON ANGARSK RESERVE
PROPOSAL

REF: SECSTATE 117710

1. (SBU) We delivered reftel demarche to MFA Energy
Department Head Berris Ekinci and Nonproliferation and
Disarmament Section Head Mustafa Yurdakul on November 17.
While noting no particular objections to the reftel
information, Ekinci said the GoT will seek additional
information about the proposal at the November 19 briefing
that the Russian delegation had scheduled in Vienna. She
said the MFA would have to consult the Turkish Atomic Energy
Agency following the November 19 briefing and will have to
weigh the relative merits of the Angarsk Reserve proposal
with other nuclear fuel bank proposals before taking a
decision. We noted that the various nuclear fuel bank
proposals are not competitive but complementary in nature and
urged the GoT to support the likely Russian request for a
resolution in support of its proposal at the upcoming IAEA
Board of Governors meeting. Ekinci agreed to meet again
during the week of November 23, after the GoT has had a
chance to evaluate additional information from the Russian
briefing.
