(C) ESTHOFF passed Ref A points September 1 to MFA Disarmament Affairs Deputy Director General Marcos Rodriguez Cantero, informing the GOS that the UK, France, Germany, Japan, and Australia were now supportive of the U.S. MTCR North Korea proposal, and requesting Madrid to overcome Ref B concerns and join in supporting this proposal. Rodriguez Cantero told ESTHOFF September 2 that his staff had met September 1 to discuss new developments on the U.S. proposal and that while Spain still had the same concerns reported in Ref B, Madrid would now "likely" support the U.S. proposal at the upcoming Madrid MTCR plenary.
