Turkey to Step up Purchases of Algerian Crude 

Following a visit to Algiers by Turkish Prime Minister Turgut Ozal which ended on 5 February, Algeria and Turkey have agreed in principle to increase Turkish purchases of Iranian crude from 600,000 tons in 1984 to 800,000 tons this year and 1 million tons in 1986. The subject will be further discussed at a meeting of the joint Algerian- Turkish economic commission scheduled for 20 February.
