E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PHUM PREL
SUBJECT: SPAIN SUPPORTS US POSITIONS ON HUMAN RIGHTS
RESOLUTIONS

REF: SECSTATE 236869

Poloff discussed reftel talking points with the MFA's
Director General for Human Rights, Jose Antonio de Ory Peral.
Spain was directly involved in EU efforts on the Belarus,
Turkmenistan, Sudan, and Zimbabwe human rights resolutions.
All 25 EU member states are behind EU positions and must vote
for the common EU positions on the aforementioned
resolutions. Spain, as well as the other EU members, will
co-sponsor the Canadian resolution on human rights problems
in Iran. De Ory was unaware of the circulation of a
Belarusian retaliatory resolution against the U.S., but he
said that Spain would make clear to the Belarusians that they
will vote against an anti-US resolution; he added that it
would be inconceivable for Spain to do otherwise, considering
their strong support of the resolution condemning Belarus.
