Turkey makes its Fifth Contribution to a MPTF Office administered fund

26 Mar 2013

New York – Turkey is one of the MPTF Office’s longest standing contributing partners. It made its first contribution in 2005 to the Iraq Trust Fund and today, it made its fifth contribution to a MPTF Office administered fund. The Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Turkey to the United Nations and the Executive Coordinator of the MPTF Office, signed a Standard Arrangement Agreement for a $100,000 contribution to the Trust Fund to Support Initiatives of States Countering Piracy off the Coast of Somalia. This Fund was established by the UN Secretary General in order to defray the expenses associated with the prosecution of suspected pirates as well to support the international forum, the Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia, in meeting its objective of  eliminating piracy. This brings Turkey’s overall contributions to almost $11 million. Turkey has also contributed to two Iraq Trust Funds, the Peacebuilding Fund and the Ecuador Yasuni Fund.
