Viewing cable 07REYKJAVIK82, ICELAND NON-COMMITTAL ON RESETTLEMENT OF GUANTANAMO DETAINEES

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
If you find meaningful or important information in a cable, please link directly to its unique reference number.

TAGS: PREL PTER PHUM PINR KAWC IC
SUBJECT: ICELAND NON-COMMITTAL ON RESETTLEMENT OF GUANTANAMO DETAINEES 
 
REF: STATE 37005; STATE 36991 
 
Classified By: Ambassador Carol van Voorst for reasons 1.4 (b) and 
(d). 
 
1. (C) On March 26 Ambassador discussed resettlement of Guantanamo 
detainees in a meeting with Foreign Minister Valgerdur Sverrisdottir 
and MFA advisor Jorundur Valtysson. Sverrisdottir said she would 
welcome the eventual closing of the detention facility but her 
government would need to study closely the request for detainee 
resettlement.  She will get back to us with a formal reply. 
 
2. (C) Note:  Iceland admits around 25 refugees a year through the 
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHRC).  The 
government has previously been unwilling to accept a larger number or 
to admit them outside the UNHCR mechanism.
