Viewing cable 06REYKJAVIK405, ICELAND FOLLOWING NORDIC LEAD ON INDIGENOUS PEOPLES

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:  ICELAND FOLLOWING NORDIC LEAD ON INDIGENOUS PEOPLES 
 
REF:  STATE 169257 
 
1.  (SBU) Poloff presented reftel demarche to Icelandic MFA 
Counselor for Human Rights Ingibjorg Davidsdottir on October 25. 
Davidsdottir, who transferred from the Icelandic mission in Geneva 
this summer, was familiar with the text and the joint 
U.S.-Australian-New Zealand position, but apologetically noted that 
the GOI had pledged its support for the declaration "out of Nordic 
solidarity." 
 
2.  (SBU) Allowing that Iceland's lack of indigenous people left the 
GOI with few equities on the matter, Davidsdottir (protect) said 
that as a matter of human rights law she personally shared many of 
the USG's concerns regarding the draft declaration.  She added that 
the procedural irregularities in the draft's progress through the UN 
system left her uneasy.  However, the GOI was firm in its desire to 
stand with the other Nordic states, and would vote for the 
declaration's adoption when the matter came to the floor.
