SUBJECT: SPAIN: IRAN ELECTIONS DEMARCHE DELIVERED

REF: STATE 25587

1. (U) Embassy made a strong case for the EU Presidency and
Spain to issue statements regarding the Iran elections per
reftel demarche. Alberto Ucelay, Deputy Director for Middle
East Affairs at the Spanish MFA, said that they would
consider our points, particularly with regard to the need for
transparency. Spain will work within the EU context on this
issue. Ucelay said that Spain shares our concerns about the
fundamental flaws in Iran's electoral process. He
anticipates there will be an EU statement that conveys a
similar message, but he could not say when it would be
issued.
