Viewing cable 07REYKJAVIK292, ICELAND: VERY SUPPORTIVE OF RESOLUTION AGAINST USE OF RAPE

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.

E.O. 12958: N/A 
TAGS: PHUM PREL UNGA IC
SUBJECT: ICELAND: VERY SUPPORTIVE OF RESOLUTION AGAINST USE OF RAPE 
AS INSTRUMENT OF STATE POLICY 
 
REF:  STATE 135255 
 
1.  (SBU) Pol Chief passed reftel draft resolution to Ingibjorg 
Davidsdottir, Counsellor for Human Rights at the  Icelandic Ministry 
for Foreign Affairs on 26 September, and followed up to present 
reftel talking points on 1 October.  Davidsdottir reported that the 
draft resolution looked like something that Iceland could easily 
support and would likely move to co-sponsor.  She took on board Pol 
Chief's cautions regarding amendments that would clearly block U.S. 
sponsorship for the resolution. 
 
2.  (SBU) Comment:  Iceland is a near-certain supporter and/or 
co-sponsor of the resolution, particularly in the context of 
comments to the press by the Foreign Minister during her visit to 
UNGA.  In those statements, the Minister lauded the Secretary's 
Women Leaders' Working Group and the useful discussion there 
regarding organized mass rapes and their use as an instrument of 
state policy.
