Poloff delivered reftel points on June 19 to Enrique
Yturriaga, MFA Subdirector General for Technical
International Organizations, and urged Spain to help block
any effort to prematurely adjourn the June 20-21
International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.
Yturriaga said that Spain strongly believed in the importance
of the Third Protocol and would continue to work with its EU
partners to secure its enactment. He said he would relay
concerns about the efforts of some countries to block
adoption of the Third Protocol to Spanish Ambassador Manuel
Pombo, who will direct Spain's participation on this issue at
the Conference.
