1. Embassy shared open source information about the June 24
Berlin Conference in Support of Palestinian Civil Security
and the Rule of Law with Spanish MFA Deputy Director General
for the Middle East Alberto Ucelay. Spain intends to
participate in the conference and attended the preparatory
sessions in Berlin and Jericho. Ucelay said it is
critically important to show progress to local populations
and advance the themes of the Annapolis Conference.

2. Spain agrees with the need to support the development of a
functioning Palestinian state and is finalizing its pledge at
this time. Ucelay said that Spain views the Palestinian
security sector as a fundamental pillar and will continue
support through the EUPOL COPPS program. Spain already has
given 10 million euros for equipment through the EUPOL COPPS
mechanism in 2005. In addition, Spanish officials from the
National Police and Civil Guard have participated in the EU
mission.
