Stock Exchange.

seven of the accompanying prospectus shall read as follows for purposes of
the notes: Liens on assets (other than official holdings of gold) in existence
on January 17, 2006, provided that such Liens remain confined to the assets

coupons, registered in the names of investors or their nominees in
denominations of $2,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.


Clearance and Settlement
Beneficial interests in the notes will be shown on, and transfer thereof will be
effected only through, records maintained by The Depository Trust Company
("DTC") and its participants, unless certain contingencies occur, in which
case the notes will be issued in definitive form. Investors may elect to hold
interests in the notes through DTC, Euroclear Bank S.A./N.V. ("Euroclear")

Collective Action Securities
The notes will be designated Collective Action Securities under the Fiscal
Agency Agreement, dated as of December 15, 1998, between the Republic
and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as amended by Amendment No. 1 to
Fiscal Agency Agreement, dated as of September 17, 2003, and Amendment
No. 2 to the Fiscal Agency Agreement, dated as of January 7, 2004
(collectively, the "fiscal agency agreement"). The notes will contain
provisions regarding acceleration and voting on amendments, modifications,
changes and waivers that differ from those applicable to certain other series
of U.S. dollar denominated debt securities issued by the Republic and
described in the accompanying prospectus. The provisions described in this
prospectus supplement will govern the notes. These provisions are
commonly referred to as "collective action clauses." Under these provisions,
we may amend certain key terms of the notes, including the maturity date,
interest rate and other payment terms, with the consent of the holders of not
less than 75% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding notes.
Additionally, if an event of default has occurred and is continuing,

the notes may be declared to be due and payable immediately by holders of
not less than 25% of the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding notes.
These provisions are described in the sections entitled "Description of the
Notes -- Default; Acceleration of Maturity" and "-- Amendments and
Waivers" in this prospectus supplement and "Collective Action Securities"
in the accompanying prospectus.


Sinking Fund
None.


Prescription Period
None.


Use of Proceeds
We will use the net proceeds of the sale of the notes for general financing
purposes, which may include the repayment of debt. The amount of net
proceeds (before expenses and exclusive of accrued but unpaid interest) is
$1,451,475,000.


Risk Factors
Risks associated with the notes generally include: 1) the trading market for
debt securities may be volatile and may be adversely impacted by many
events; 2) there could be no active trading market for the notes; 3) the notes
may not be a suitable investment for all investors; 4) the notes are unsecured;
5) the terms of the notes may be modified, waived or substituted without the
consent of all of the holders; 6) Turkey is a foreign sovereign state and
accordingly it may be difficult to obtain or enforce judgments against it; 7)
there can be no assurance that the laws of the State of New York in effect as
at the date of this prospectus supplement will not be modified; 8) there may
be certain legal restraints in relation to investment in the notes with regard to
your particular circumstances.



Risks associated with the Republic generally include: 1) there can be no
assurance that Turkey's credit rating will not change; 2) changes in the
Republic's domestic and international political and economic environment
may have a negative effect on its financial condition; 3) the risks arising
from the relatively short maturity structure of domestic borrowing and the
potential deterioration in financing conditions as a result of market,
economic and political factors, which may be outside the Republic's control,
may jeopardize the debt dynamics of the Republic; 4) there are potential
inflation risks; 5) there are risks associated with the foreign exchange rate of
the Republic's currency; and 6) there are risks associated with the potential
delay in the Republic's accession to the European Union which may have a
negative impact on the Republic's economic performance and credit ratings.



These risk factors are described in the section entitled "Risk Factors" of this
prospectus supplement.
