We conveyed reftel points to the Ministries of Foreign 
Affairs and Health.  Ana Paredes, Subdirector General for 
International Technical Organizations at the MFA, told us May 
12 that if the issue of Taiwan observership comes to a vote, 
Ireland will speak for the EU and that the EU's position is 
being discussed in Geneva and Brussels.  When pressed about 
Spain's views, Paredes limited herself to saying that GOS 
positions regarding Taiwan are always based on the "one 
China" policy.
