SUBJECT: BUDGET LIMITS SPAIN'S CONTRIBUTION TO IAEA
TECHNICAL COOPERATION PROGRAM

REF: STATE 44695

(SBU) We presented reftel points on March 3 to the Officer
in Charge for International Disarmament Affairs, Marcos
Rodriguez Cantero, at the MFA. Rodriguez pointed out that
Spain's balance budget policy limits its voluntary
contributions to the Technical Cooperation Program to less
than forty percent of its target rate of attainment. For
this reason, Spain may not be able to meet this year's target
contribution percentage. He assured us, however, that Spain
will continue to meet its compulsory contributions to the
IAEA's regular budget.
