Viewing cable 08REYKJAVIK135, ICELAND UNDECIDED ON UNIVERSAL POSTAL UNION CONGRESS

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

(U) Econ Off and POL Intern delivered reftel talking points to 
Deputy Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Communications Halldor 
Kristjansson on July 10 and followed up with a diplomatic note. 
Kristjansson commented that many others are seeking Iceland's 
support at the UPU Congress and he could not comment on whether or 
not Iceland will support U.S. objectives at the Congress. He said 
that likely the Icelandic Ambassador in Geneva would head the 
delegation, along with a representative from the Ministry for 
Foreign Affairs.
