Right now for example we’re working on an exchange of TIP notes which will in fact be a memorandum of understanding between the two countries on the sharing of intelligence information coming out of interdiction of migrants on the seas.

 “I spoke to the reporter concerned yesterday and asked that his newspaper correct this statement since it is something that I did not say.  They have not done so today  

“I am therefore forced to correct the statement myself in this forum.

 “I said the following: “Increasingly the assets of the US government have been used to fight migrant smuggling. This is becoming an ever more complicated area. Right now for example we’re working on an exchange of dip notes which will in fact be a memorandum of understanding between the two countries on the sharing of intelligence information coming out of interdiction of migrants on the seas.

 “The operative expression is “dip note”, not TIP note.  TIP note makes no sense in the context of the statement.  TIP normally means trafficking in persons.  As I explained to the reporter, “dip.” is short for Diplomatic Note. 

 “In other words that the  Foreign Ministry and the US government propose to exchange diplomatic notes as the form of agreement on how intelligence should be collected and shared on migrant smuggling.

 “I hope that the newspaper will correct the record appropriately.”
