Viewing cable 08ROME274, AUSTRALIA GROUP: ITALIAN PARTICIPATION IN PLENARY

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.

INFORMATION EXCHANGE AND EXPERTS ENFORCEMENT MEETINGS REF: STATE 16112 Classified By: EconCouns William Meara for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d)

1.(U) Econoff delivered reftel non-paper on participation in the Australia Group's Plenary information exchange and experts meetings to Roberto Liotto, the Italian MFA official responsible for GOI participation in the Australia Group (AG). Liotto said that by March 14, he will inform the AG Secretariat of the subject of the GOI presentation and the SIPDIS composition of the GOI delegation, which he will head. The GOI presentation is being prepared by experts at the Ministry of Trade and Italian Customs.

2.(C) Liotto reiterated the GOI position concerning possible Russian membership in the Australia Group. The GOI supports continued AG outreach on export control issues to the GOR, but recognizes that Russia must meet AG membership requirements in order to become a member of the group.
