1. We spoke with high level officials in the Ministries of
Foreign Affairs (including the Spanish International Aid
Agency) and Environment regarding reftel meetings. Secretary
General for Pollution Prevention and Climate Change Arturo
Gonzalo Aizpiri expressed interest in sending a couple of his
Ministry's experts to the workshop to perform an
environmental needs assessment. He asked us to send further
details when they are available. He also asked if private
sector entities (NGOs, industry) would be welcome to
participate. Javier Carbajosa, chief of staff to the MFA's
State Secretary for Foreign Affairs, also expressed interest
in principle and looked forward to receiving additional
details.



2. Regarding the follow-up donors meeting, newly-installed
Secretary General of the Spanish International Aid Agency

SIPDIS

need more time to evaluate assistance priorities for Iraq.
