SUBJECT: CHANGE TO SEISMIC RESEARCH STATION AGREEMENT
REF: STATE 103029
(SBU) On June 23, we proposed to MFA North America Department
Head Vakur Erkul the change to the Feb. 8, 2000 agreement
concerning the seismic research station to permit the
installation, operation and maintenance of new sensors in
eastern Turkey (reftel). Erkul was unfamiliar with the
issue, asked for the proposal in the form of a diplomatic
note (which we provided), and undertook to consult with the
relevant authorities. He anticipated it would take several
weeks before he had an indication of the GOT's receptivity to
this proposal.
