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.

Classified By: Amb. Carol van Voorst for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d). 
 
(C/NF) Ambassador presented reftel points to Gretar Mar Sigurdsson, 
Permanent Secretary of State at the Icelandic Ministry for Foreign 
Affairs, on December 13.  Sigurdsson agreed that an international 
approach based on the Ahtisaari plan presented the only viable option 
for a status solution for Kosovo at this point.  He said that Iceland 
was adopting a wait and see policy for the moment but would 
eventually follow the rest of Europe in recognizing an independent 
Kosovo.  Iceland would be neither the first nor the last country to 
do so.  "In any event, we will be ahead of Norway," Sigurdsson 
allowed in an aside.
