Viewing cable 07REYKJAVIK42, RESPONDING TO RUSSIAN THREATS AGAINST MISSILE DEFENSE

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

(C) Charge delivered reftel points to Thordur Bjarni Gudjonsson, 
Acting Political Director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on 
February 26.  Gudjonsson said that the Icelanders would take a 
further look at this issue but that he was already familiar with the 
Russian's negative opinion of NATO expansion having served from 2000 
until 2005 as the Deputy of the Icelandic delegation to NATO.  He 
said the GOI would continue supporting the USG position in meetings 
but that it was doubtful that the GOI would make a public statement 
on the issue at this time.
