(SBU) EconOff delivered reftel demarche November 16 to Pablo
Montesino-Espartero, Subdirector General of Multilateral
Economic Relations and of Air, Sea, and Land Cooperation at
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. EconOff followed-up on
November 21 and was informed by Montesino-Espartero that USG
representatives should speak directly with Esteban Pacha, the
Transportation Counselor at the Embassy of Spain in London
who is coordinating Spanish support for the IMO elections.
Paula Sancho Torrego, also in the Subdirectorate General of
Multilateral Economic Relations and of Air, Sea, and Land
Cooperation, communicated that it was odd for us to ask for
support only a few weeks in advance of the elections, when a
similar request via diplomatic note for support of Spain's
candidacy has gone unanswered for four months. EconOff
requested more info on the unanswered diplomatic note but
Montesino-Espartero again suggested that our representatives
speak directly with Pacha in London.
