SUBJECT: KAZAKHSTAN - DEMARCHE DELIVERED ON TURKEY'S CHANGE 
OF STATUS AT THE EBRD 
 
REF: STATE 41999 
 
 1. (SBU) On April 24, Poloff delivered reftel demarche 
points on Turkey's EBRD status to MFA Multilateral Economic 
and Humanitarian Cooperation Department head Mursulnaby 
Tuyakbayev.  He was not aware of Turkey's request, and 
thanked poloff for bringing this proposal to their attention 
in advance of the May 18-19 EBRD Board of Governor's meeting. 
 Tuyakbayev appeared willing to support the U.S. position, as 
long as Turkey did not object to this approach.  He told 
poloff that the MFA will discuss this in detail with the 
Ministry of Finance, which has the lead on EBRD issues. 
Tuyakbayev was interested in the reasoning for Turkey's 
request for a change of status and if this change of status 
would be permanent.  Poloff explained that according to the 
EBRD office in Astana, Turkey had asked the organization to 
provide project financing for various economic reform 
activities and that if its status was changed to a country of 
operation, this change could be permanent.  Tuyakbayev said 
that the MFA will inform the Embassy of the Kazakhstani 
government's official position as soon as the issue is 
reviewed interagency.
