Viewing cable 08REYKJAVIK70, ICELAND WILL SIGN ON TO PRISONERS OF CONSCIENCE

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

ΒΆ1.  (SBU) Pol Chief briefly mentioned reftel declaration to 
Ingibjorg Davidsdottir, Counsellor for Human Rights at the Icelandic 
Ministry for Foreign Affairs on 22 April and followed up with a 
detailed demarche the next day.  Davidsdottir replied that she had 
spoken with Iceland's UN Mission after the previous day's 
conversation, and after reviewing the draft declaration instructed 
the mission to add Iceland to the list of signatories.  "I told them 
it would be scandalous if we didn't support this," commented 
Davidsdottir.
