Viewing cable 07REYKJAVIK92, ICELAND UNABLE TO TAKE 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

(C) As Iceland's formal reply to demarche (ref B), MFA's Minister 
Counselor Nikulas Hannigan told A/Poloff on March 29 that they do not 
have the expertise or the facilities (social or security) to receive 
and integrate Guantanamo detainees.  Hannigan said Icelandic law 
provides only for accepting refugees, and these only as defined by 
UNHCR.
