¶1. (C) On April 13, Senator Judd Gregg, accompanied by the
Charge d’Affaires and poloff, met with Spanish Foreign
Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos. Moratinos said he was
pleased to receive the Senator and appreciated his efforts in
engaging with Spanish counterparts and learning what Spain is
trying to accomplish in these challenging times. Moratinos
lamented that he would not be able to also meet with Senator
Martinez, arriving in Spain April 14, as he will be traveling
to Israel to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu
(“with whom I have good relations”) to discuss the new
realities on the ground.

¶2. (C) Senator Gregg thanked Moratinos for Spain’s commitment
in Afghanistan. President Zapatero announced April 4 that
Spain will contribute an additional 9 million euros to Afghan
development, 4 million of which would be allotted for Afghan
National Army training and 5 million to support the Afghan
elections. Moratinos said that Spain will be “extremely
committed in Afghanistan,” primarily in training of Afghan
forces and with economic reform. He shared that President
Obama requested extra efforts from Spain during his April 5
meeting with President Zapatero in Prague and reported that
after studying GOS capabilities, he (Moratinos) would report
Spain’s formal commitment to Secretary Clinton. Moratinos
opined that President Obama’s and President Zapatero’s April
5 meeting “closed the vacuum” in Spain/U.S. relations and
marked the beginning of a new productive relationship wherein
we can share our concerns and efforts on issues such as
Afghanistan, Iraq, the Middle East, Latin America, and
climate change. He added that Zapatero committed Spain to
work with the United States in an intensified manner.

¶3. (C) Senator Gregg added that Spain’s support for Turkey’s
EU accession was another important issue on which we agreed
and inquired as to France and Germany’s reluctance.
Moratinos responded that France and Germany were indeed a
problem, “but we will convince them,” he added. He agreed
with Senator Gregg that Turkey provides a unique opportunity
– the inclusion and development of a moderate Islamic
community which could potentially turn other Muslim countries
in the right direction.

¶4. (C) Senator Gregg inquired as to Moratinos’ planned trip
to Israel. Moratinos agreed that jump-starting the Middle
East Peace Process (MEPP) would not be easy, adding that an
important concern is Iran’s counterproductive behavior. “It
is imperative to look at how to contain Iran while giving
Iran responsibility in the region as well,” he said. On
this, he added, we must remain “united, clear, and firm.”

¶5. (C) In post-meeting side conversation with MFA Director
General Policy Director for North America and Europe Luis
Felipe Fernandez de la Pena, Senator Gregg expressed his
concern and dismay about reported Spanish judiciary desire to
indict six former Bush administration officials for allegedly
creating a legal framework that permitted torture. Fernandez
de la Pena lamented this development, adding that judicial
independence notwithstanding, the MFA disagreed with efforts
to apply universal jurisdiction in such cases.

¶6. (U) Senator Gregg was unable to clear this cable prior to
departure.
