REF: STATE 129187

1. (SBU) Political Counselor discussed reftel points
December 21 with Ambassador Gabor Horvath, Deputy Director of
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Security Policy and
Non-Proliferation Department. Horvath stated the MFA
"totally supported -- full stop" the concept of increased
civilian deployment and concluding an agreement. He noted,
however, that the Ministry of Defense hoped to clarify
several issues in the draft memorandum relating to force
protection requirements, e.g., how often U.S. personnel
expected to move off base.

2. (SBU) Lieutenant Colonel Laszlo Bagi, Chief of the
Ministry of Defense's Peacekeeping Operations Department,
separately stated that the MoD would provide its comments on
the force protection issue back to MFA within the next
