Viewing cable 08MANAMA485, BAHRAIN: ENCOURAGING KAZAKH CANDIDACY FOR IAEA

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.

Classified By: CDA Christopher Henzel for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d). (S) A/DCM delivered reftel points to MFA Legal Affairs Director Dr. Yusuf Abdulkarim on July 22. Dr. Yusuf is the GOB's principal POC on IAEA matters. He immediately grasped the problems Syria's candidacy posed, noting that it would be "troubling" to have Syria sitting on the Board of Governors while its own activities are under investigation. Dr. Yusuf said that he supported the idea of an alternative candidate, but must consult with the Foreign Minister's office before instructing Bahrain's Geneva mission (which also covers the IAEA in Vienna) to reach out to the Kazakhs. ********************************************* ******** Visit Embassy Manama's Classified Website: XXXXXXXXXXXX********************************************* ******** HENZEL
