Viewing cable 08SANJOSE500, COSTA RICA AND GLOBAL MARITIME PARTNERSHIP: MANY

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
If you find meaningful or important information in a cable, please link directly to its unique reference number.

TAGS: PREL PINS MASS MCAP SNAR CS
SUBJECT: COSTA RICA AND GLOBAL MARITIME PARTNERSHIP: MANY 
ELEMENTS ALREADY IN PLACE 
 
REF: STATE 50488 
 
1. On June 10, we briefed Director Martin Arias of the Costa 
Rican Coast Guard (SNGC) on the Global Maritime Partnership 
(GMP) initiative.  Arias seemed positive about Costa Rica's 
support of the GMP principles, but will provide us further 
feedback once the GOCR's Ministry of Public Security (MPS), 
the SNGC's parent agency, has reviewed the initiative. 
 
2. Arias noted, and Post agrees, that the GOCR already 
supports many, if not all, of the GMP principles as outlined 
in reftel. 
 
3. Post notes that the USG has a dynamic maritime 
relationship with the GOCR and the SNGC, including the 
following examples of existing and/or future cooperation: 
 
 -- a Bilateral Maritime Agreement, ratified in 1999 and good 
for 10 years, which is primarily counternarcotics focused; 
 
 -- a Search and Rescue (SAR) Memorandum of Agreement, which 
is about to be signed with the GOCR; 
 
 -- plans to bring the USS Swift (HSV) to Costa Rica in 
FY2009 to provide some training to the SNGC (reftel); 
 
 -- Costa Rica's first-ever participation in this year's 
PANAMAX exercise; and 
 
 -- a USCG conducted survey of the SNGC and the GOCR's 
capabilities, practices and port activities, intended to 
assist Costa Rica in the management of its coast guard and 
maritime/port operations. 
 
4. Arias asked if there was/would be a website with more 
information on the GMP.  Please advise.
