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: BAHRAIN: SOLICITING CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE NUCLEAR 
THREAT INITIATIVE PROPOSAL FOR A NUCLEAR FUEL BANK 
 
REF: STATE 68313 

Classified By: CDA Christopher Henzel for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d).

1.(C) Poloff briefed MFA Legal Affairs officer Najah Ali Rashid on the Nuclear Threat Initiative proposal on July 3 and made the case for a GOB contribution to the fund. He pointed out that Bahrain's MOU commitments on obtaining fuel from established international sources would make it a prime candidate to benefit from the establishment of a nuclear fuel bank, and that a financial contribution to the project by a potential beneficiary would send the right message.

2.(C) Rashid reiterated the GOB's fuel cycle commitments and noted King Hamad's directive to pursue nuclear energy transparently and in accordance with all international non-proliferation standards. She indicated interest in the fuel bank proposal and undertook to consult with MFA Legal Adviser Dr. Yusuf Abdulkarim, the GOB's point-man on nuclear non-proliferation, about a possible contribution. ********************************************* ******** Visit Embassy Manama's Classified Website: XXXXXXXXXXXX********************************************* ******** HENZEL
