1. (SBU) POLOFF delivered REFTELS on May 23 to MFA
Disarmament Affairs Deputy Director General Ignacio Sanchez.
Sanchez reviewed the points and said that any GOS agreement
to share Iran denial information would have to be coordinated
with other Spanish Ministries. Sanchez undertook to pass the
points around and reply with a coordinated response. In
terms of GOS attendance at a NSG open-ended meeting in Vienna
the week of June 4, Sanchez said that he would ask one of
Spain's other Ministries to attend, as the MFA's limited
nonproliferation staff will be tied up with events in Madrid,
the Australia Group plenary in Paris and a working group in
Brussels. Post will report any additional information
received from the Spanish MFA.
