Viewing cable 09REYKJAVIK192, ICELAND: RESPONSE TO THIRD COMMITTEE DEMARCHE

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: ICELAND: RESPONSE TO THIRD COMMITTEE DEMARCHE 
 
REF: STATE 109397 
 
1. (SBU) Poloff delivered reftel points on October 26 to Emil 
Hreggvidsson, Deputy Director for International and Security Affairs 
at the Icelandic Ministry for Foreign Affairs.  Hreggvidsson said 
that Iceland's objectives for the upcoming session of the UN General 
Assembly Third Committee closely align with those of the United 
States. 
2. (SBU) Hreggvidsson said that Iceland, like the United States, is 
troubled by "no-action motions" and will oppose their use.  It is 
also Iceland's intention, he continued, to co-sponsor the three 
country-specific resolutions against Iran, Burma and the DPRK. 
Regarding the thematic resolutions, Hreggvidsson said that Iceland 
will likely join the U.S. in opposing the defamation of religions 
resolution and will support the U.S. sponsored elections resolution. 
 He was also pleased to hear that the U.S. is looking to find common 
ground on the rights of the child resolution.  The Government of 
Iceland, he said, considers protecting children's rights a top 
priority and intends to make a speech supporting the issue at the 
Third Committee.
