Viewing cable 09STOCKHOLM194, SWEDEN: CI/KR RESPONSE FOR S/CT

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.

SUBJECT:  SWEDEN: CI/KR RESPONSE FOR S/CT  

REF: SECSTATE 15113  

Classified By: CDA  Robert Silverman for reasons: 1/4 (B), (D), (E), and (G)  

1. (S) In  response to reftel, post would like to add Sweden's communications  infrastructure to the CI/KR list.  Although Sweden does not posses a  direct undersea cable from the U.S., Sweden is a central European  communications hub.  For example, Swedish company TeliaSonera is an  international carrier that owns and manages 43,000 km of fiber optic  cable linking Russia and the Baltics to the rest of Europe and the U.S.   If these lines of communications were to be destroyed, disrupted, or  exploited, it may compromise global communications.  

2. (S) Post  recommends keeping Swedish pharmaceutical manufacturing company Recip AB  on the CI/KR list for its production of ThyroSafe (potassium iodide).   This resource provides protection in the aftermath of a nuclear  emergency. ThyroSafe is the only FDA approved 65 mg potassium iodide  tablet used to protect the thyroid gland against radioactive iodine  released during a nuclear emergency.
