Viewing cable 06SANJOSE1933, REQUEST FOR GUIDANCE ON PROPOSED COSTA RICAN ARMS

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: REQUEST FOR GUIDANCE ON PROPOSED COSTA RICAN ARMS 
TRADE TREATY 
 
REF: A. 05 STATE 6101 
 
     B. SNIDLE-FRISBIE EMAIL 8-29-2006 
 
1.  Post requests Department's guidance in responding to 
Costa Rica's latest proposal for a framework treaty on arms 
trading.  Ref A conveyed Department's opposition to Costa 
Rica's efforts to propose an earlier version of the treaty at 
the OAS more than a year and a half ago.  The original 
proposal was presented by Oscar Arias, along with six other 
Nobel Prize winners, in New York in 1997 and was offered as 
an international code of conduct.  Now the proposal has been 
formatted as an international treaty intended to implement 
additional requirements over time.  The proposal is currently 
supported by 20 Nobel laureates and the British government, 
according to an invitation to the Ambassador from Foreign 
Minister Stagno, dated August 22, 2006 (faxed to WHA/CEN). 
 
2.  The Ambassador has been invited to a joint Costa 
Rican-U.K. presentation on the proposed treaty planned for 
September 5, 2006.  Since the Ambassador will out of the 
capital on that date, Post would plan to be represented at 
the presentation by the Political Section.  Post requests 
guidance in time for the September 5 event.
