If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

SUBJECT:  ICELANDIC STATEMENT ON AKBAR GANGI:  ONLY IN 
COORDINATION WITH EU 
 
REF:  STATE 42097 
 
Post presented reftel request (for a statement calling for 
the release of Iranian journalist Akbar Ganji) to Icelandic 
MFA Head of International Institutions Division Nikulas 
Hannigan March 16.  Hannigan stated that the Government of 
Iceland does not have a tradition of making statements on 
individual foreign affairs issues.  Typically, it will align 
itself with European Union statements, as it did with a 
November 2005 EU declaration dealing with the issue of 
Iranian political prisoners.  Hannigan said he had asked his 
colleagues in Brussels to watch for an EU request to join in 
making a statement on Ganji and that Iceland would probably 
sign on if one were forthcoming.
