Viewing cable 09CAIRO940, EGYPT: FOREIGN MINISTER SAYS NO TO AMANO 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: Ambassador Margaret Scobey per 1.4 (b) and (d). (C) The Ambassador spoke to FM Aboul Ghayt before his departure for the U.S. and asked that Egypt strongly consider voting for Yukiya Amano of Japan for IAEA Director General (ref A). He immediately responded "no." Egyptian views on the Japanese candidacy, he explained, stem from Egyptian experience with the Japanese "who never support us" and "who block us everywhere." He said they would vote for anyone but the Japanese candidate and indicated they would stick with their first-round candidate, Abdul Minty of South Africa (ref B). Aboul Ghayt left little room for discussion. The Ambassador noted strong U.S. interest in finding the most qualified person and believed it was the Japanese candidate. She indicated that the topic may come up for discussion again during his upcoming visit to Washington. Aboul Ghayt said Egypt's response would be the same. SCOBEY
