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.

HMG will "try to (use its) influence8 so that Afghanistan can get on the IAEA Board of Governors in lieu of Syria, George Sherriff of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office,s Counter Proliferation Department told Poloff August 19. He added that one strategy might be to approach "non-friends of Syria" in order to influence Arab states. Sherriff opined that if Afghanistan,s candidacy went before IAEA,s General Conference, Afghanistan would probably prevail, although it would be &ideal8 if Afghanistan were the Middle East and South Asia Group's (MESA) preferred candidate for a seat on the Board of Governors.
