Dear [email address],

Apologies for failing to reach you at the agreed time: some technical issues got in the way.

To help with the processing of my request, I would like to offer the following clarification:

The original request included copies of correspondence between DG Home staff, and authorities of 53 countries, intended to be included as part of FRONTEX' JRS programme. I would like to limit the scope to:
- correspondence regarding providing operational support through capacity building that would be given to local authorities of third countries as part of the JRS program.
- Excluded from the scope is any correspondence as it relates to negotiation around or implementation of readmission agreements.

Hope this helps. Otherwise, I would be more than happy to get in touch over the phone, as it was originally suggested.

Yours sincerely,

Anas Ambri

Dear [email address],
