SUBJECT: IRAN/IAEA: REACTION TO DG'S IRAN REPORT

REF: STATE 43582

Classified By: Political Counselor Kathleen M. Fitzpatrick for reasons
1.4 (B) and (D)



1. (C) We met with Marcos Rodriguez Cantero of the
International Disarmament division at MFA on March 3 and
conveyed US views on the IAEA Iran Report. Rodriguez told us
that Spain shares US concerns about Iranian non-proliferation
and the findings contained in the IAEA Iran report.
Non-proliferation has been high on the Spain-Iran bilateral
agenda, including at the Presidential level. Rodriguez noted
that the EU-3 believes that a carrot and stick approach is
most effective with the Iranians. The EU may thus seek a
more flexible position on Iran. Nonetheless, Rodriguez
reiterated that Spain, as chair of the IAEA Board of
Governors, favored taking a strong stance to get Iran to meet
fully its non-proliferation pledges.
