1. (SBU) POLOFF met Carlos Torres, MFA Counselor for
Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, on October 22 to
deliver REFTEL A demarche. Torres said that he will serve as
point of contact (POC) for the Defense Threat Reduction
Agency for matters related to the Global Initiative
Information Portal (GIIP) and informed POLOFF that Spain,
which has been busy all year hosting a number of Global
Initiative events, already has roughly 60 accounts activated
with the GIIP.

2. (SBU) Torres reviewed the existing draft of POC's listed
for Spain as part of REFTEL B and asked that Carmen Bujan
Freire, Director General for Strategic Affairs and Terrorism
at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, be added
to the top of the list for Spanish POCs. Torres requested
that, if formal invitations will be issued to the November
13-14, 2008 meeting of the GI's Exercise Planning Group in
Washington, DC, as discussed in REFTEL C, then it would be
best for the invitation to the Spanish delegation to be
addressed to Bujan.

3. (U) Other changes to Spain's portion of the GI POC list
and contact information for the GI Coordinating Officer in
Embassy Madrid have been sent by unclassified email to Molly
Sergio and Sarah Prescott of ISN/FM WMDT, as directed in
REFTELS A and B.
