WASHINGTON, DC — Former head of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Porter Goss, who served between 2004-2006 during the George W. Bush administration, will be lobbying for Turkey in Washington, Today’s Zaman reports.

Goss’s intention to lobby for Turkey was revealed when he registered on April 23 with the US Department of Justice pursuant to the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which requires “persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal.” The registration in question expires on April 30th 2017.

The form was filed through Goss’s current employer Dickstein Shapiro, a D.C.-based law firm and lobbying group with a long-standing relationship with the Turkish government.

The form states that Goss will work on a part-time basis, advising Turkey on counter-terrorism efforts, trade and energy security issues, and “efforts to build regional stability in the broader Middle East and Europe.”

He will also lobby members of Congress on “issues of importance to Turkey” and notify his new employer of actions in Congress or the Executive Branch relevant to their national interests.

Goss worked for the Bush administration from 2004 to 2006.
