E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: MNUC PARM PREL SP
SUBJECT: SPAIN'S RESPONSE TO INVITATION TO BECOME GLOBAL
PARTNERSHIP DONOR

REF: STATE 95991

1. Per reftel Pol-miloff met May 10 with Guillermo
Kirkpatrick, MFA's Director General for International Arms
Control Affairs to revisit this issue. Kirkpatrick said
given the new government is still getting into place, it is
highly unlikely the GOS will make a decision on whether to
become a Global Partnership Donor prior to the Sea Island
Summit in June, and maybe not by then. The senior official
responsible for issue, Rafael Dezcallar, Director General for
Political Affairs, has taken over his position just recently
and is getting up to speed on the issue. If the GOS does
make a decision before the Sea Island Summit, Kirkpatrick
promised to let us know. Meanwhile, we will continue to look
for opportunities to press the issue with the GOS.
