REF: STATE 208754

ESTHOFF made reftel points October 5 to Health and
Consumption Ministry Deputy Director General for
International Affairs Jose Perez Lazaro, encouraging Spain to
make a generous contribution to the Polio Eradication
Initiative (PEI). Perez Lazaro told ESTHOFF that Spain had
already decided to contribute one million euros to the
initiative and that the funds were being transferred via the
World Heath Organization, one of the PEI's lead partners.
Perez Lazaro said he believed the funds had not yet arrived
into PEI accounts but would do so shortly. He said he
presumed we had approached Spain since Spain's donation had
not yet "officially arrived."
