SUBJECT: PRESIDENT BACHELET TO VISIT EUROPE 
 
REF: SANTIAGO 00910 
 
Classified By: Ambassador Craig A. Kelly.  Reasons: 1.4 (b and d). 
 
1. (SBU) In her first trip to Europe as president, Michelle 
Bachelet will travel to Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and 
Austria during the week of May 8-14.  Bachelet is scheduled 
to depart Santiago on May 8 and travel to Spain for a state 
visit on May 9-10.  After a brief stop in Bosnia and 
Herzegovina, where she will visit Chilean peacekeepers, 
Bachelet will travel to Vienna to attend the EU-Latin 
American/Caribbean Summit on May 12. 
 
2. (C) Comment: President Bachelet's European tour may offer 
an opportunity for like-minded European countries to discuss 
with Bachelet their concerns about Venezuela's activities in 
the Western Hemisphere and Venezuela's UNSC candidacy.  Post 
notes that the more independent any European approaches on 
Venezuela appear, the stronger will be the impact on Bachelet 
and Chile (reftel).
