spy vs spy zwei

update to yesterday's post: as if they want to explain the presence of Javier Solana:

"Madrid: first steps towards the 'James Bond' European

Sooner or later it will occur. The creation of the European External Action Service, ie the occurrence in Brussels to have its own diplomatic corps to represent theTwenty-s in the four corners of the world, raises the need for the EU to have its own network of secret services .

The National Intelligence Centre (CNI) will host a conference tomorrow in Madrid at which address, among other things, the appropriateness of the EU having its own intelligence service outside the individual state.

Until now, competition in intelligence allocated to each country, but with the development of the Lisbon Treaty, and especially now with the coming into operation of the European embassies, it feeds the debate on the appropriateness of the EU to maintain spies in those countries where it is represented.

That is the third meeting that the NCC has organized for his European colleagues in the six months of Spanish EU presidency. The previous two were held away from public visibility and media.

The first one, in Alcala de Henares, was focused on terrorism (farmer: I reported here)

and the second in Valencia, dealt with classified documents.

However,with this one, convened under the theme "The future of the European intelligence," the CNI wants to reach out to society. To this end, invited the press to the opening acts, which is payable by the CNI director, Felix Sanz Roldan, and closing, to be carried out by Javier Solana, former High Representative of Foreign Policy of the EU and now responsible for the development of the Spanish Strategy for Security."
