Viewing cable 06REYKJAVIK207, NATO RESPONSE FORCE: ICELAND TO CONSIDER NEW

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.

Discussing cables

Classified By: AMBASSADOR CAROL VAN VOORST, REASONS 1.4 (B) AND (D). 
 
(C) Post discussed reftel points -- on national force 
contributions needed to achieve NATO Response Force (NRF) 
full operational capability -- with Icelandic MFA Acting 
Political Director Thordur Bjarni Gudjonsson June 9.  We 
explained that while we understood that Iceland was not among 
those nations targeted by SHAPE for specific unfilled items 
we hoped it would nevertheless help to diminish remaining 
shortfalls.  Gudjonsson recalled Iceland's 2005 pledge of 
airlift to NRF 7 and reiterated Icelandic commitment to 
burden sharing with Allies.  While noting that on a per 
capita basis Iceland's population of 300,000 has already 
given generously to the NRF, he promised that Reykjavik would 
look closely at what more it could now contribute.
