Poloff spoke with Spanish Ambassador for Humanitarian Affairs
Maria Bassols on September 10 regarding the candidacy of
Steve Carr for the Standing Commission of the International
Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Bassols said that she
was familiar with Carr's candidacy and was impressed by his
credentials, but she said that Spain had not yet made a
decision regarding its support. She expressed surprise that
more candidates had not yet emerged for the position.
Bassols asked Poloff whether Mr. Carr had issued or planned
to issue a paper on his views of the future of the
International Red Cross, and Poloff promised to seek more
information and follow up.
