Embassy relayed reftel points on May 20 to MFA Deputy
Director General for Middle East Affairs Alberto Moreno.
Moreno offered no immediate reaction to the USG points. He
said that Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos will lead
the Spanish delegation to the Conference. Moreno will head
the Spanish team in the meetings leading up to the
ministerial-level sessions, though Moreno indicated that
further senior-level MFA officials could be added to the
Spanish delegation closer to the date of the Conference.
Embassy contacted Luxembourg Embassy political officer Serge
Hentzing and shared USG points and a readout of the
discussion with Moreno. Hentzing expressed appreciation for
the information and said he would follow up as necessary.
