    Background: Mr. Clark Clifford, the United States special envoy investigating the Cyprus dispute between Greece and Turkey, completed two days of talks with Turkish leaders in Ankara on Tuesday (22 February). He told reporters that they had resulted in "excellent progress".

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Clifford had arrived in Turkey on Sunday (20 February) on the second leg of a mission to Greece, Turkey and Cyprus. On Monday (21 February), his first full day in Turkey, he had visited the bomb of Kamal Attaturk, the founder of modern Turkey, where he laid a wreath. President Carter had sent Mr. Clifford to the Mediterranean to help promote progress towards a Cyprus settlement.

    His first meeting was with the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mr. Ihsan Sabri Caglayangil, at the foreign Ministry in Ankara. In addition to the Cyprus problem, the other major issue between the two countries is the question of United States military aid to Turkey. This has been restricted since Turkey's invasion of Cyprus in 1974.

    Among Mr. Clifford's other engagements during his short visit, was a meeting with President Fahri Koruturk. It was a formal diplomatic occasion rather than a business meeting.

    On Tuesday, towards the end of his second day there, Mr. Clifford had talks with Turkey's top generals on the question of U.S. arms supplies. The substance of the meeting was not revealed. The Turkish Government has been waiting for the Carter Administration to approve an agreement providing Turkey with one billion dollars of arms credits.
