Viewing cable 07REYKJAVIK242, ICELAND: LIKELY SUPPORT FOR GAER IN COMMITTEE AGAINST

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

SUBJECT: ICELAND: LIKELY SUPPORT FOR GAER IN COMMITTEE AGAINST 
TORTURE ELECTION 
 
REF: A) STATE 107679 B) REYKJAVIK 000229 
 
(SBU) Post followed up on Ref A points at a meeting with Icelandic 
MFA Counsellor for Human Rights Ingibjorg Davidsdottir August 21. 
Davidsdottir replied that during her previous service in Geneva she 
became quite familiar with Felice Gaer's on the UN Committee Against 
Torture. Davidsdottir noted that she would recommend that Iceland 
support Ms. Gaer's candidacy, and that this support would most 
likely be provided.  She pledged to respond with a concrete response 
as soon as one becomes available, but cautioned that this was 
unlikely until just before the election.
