On May 06, Econoff delivered reftel points to both Pablo
Montesino, Subdirector General of Air, Land and Sea
Cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and to
Eugenia Llorens, Subdirector General of International
Cooperation at the Civil Aviation Ministry. Montesino
replied to Econoff on June 01, stating that Spain would
likely support the imposition of two-year term limits on the
positions of Secretary General and Council President. In
addition, Montesino said that the GOS would also likely
support changes that would provide the Secretary General with
greater competency in regard to management of the
Secretariat. Finally, Montesino said that Spain has not yet

formulated a position in regard to candidates for the
position of Secretary General. However, Montesino did say
that the GOS would consider supporting a candidate from Latin
America, with Mexico being named specifically, or Europe,
should one be presented. (Comment: The GOS does not seem to
have established a strong position in regard to these issues
at this early stage. Econoff does not believe that Spain
will vigorously support the re-election of Dr Cherif, but
they are also unlikely to strongly oppose him. Econoff
believes that Spain's position will develop over the next
year and that a more accurate gauge of GOS views can be
obtained closer to the election date. End Comment)
