Viewing cable 06REYKJAVIK305, LEBANON: ICELAND'S CONTRIBUTION AND DONOR CONFERENCE

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.

1.  (U) To date, the Government of Iceland (GOI) has announced 
donations of ISK 24 million ($340,000) in humanitarian aid to 
Lebanon.  The pledges were divided between a 27 July tranche to UN 
agencies and local NGO Church Aid Iceland, and a 15 August tranche 
split between the World Food Program and International Committee of 
the Red Cross.  (Note: the GOI's entire budget for FY2006 is roughly 
$4.5 billion.  End note.) 
 
2.  (U) On 24 August the MFA's Minister Counselor for International 
Organization and Near East Affairs told post that the GOI had no 
immediate plans to increase its assistance to Lebanon but would 
continue to look for opportunities where Icelandic assistance could 
be particularly helpful.  Iceland will be represented at the 
Stockholm Donors' Conference by Icelandic Ambassador to Sweden 
Gudmundur Arni Stefansson.
