Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:

  • 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: EGYPT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED - DISCUSSIONS OF FUEL 
BANK AT UPCOMING IAEA BOARD OF GOVERNORS MEETING 
 
REF: STATE 57598 (SBU) On June 10, Poloff urged MFA Disarmament Affairs official Heba Negm to support a positive discussion of "Assurance of Supply" at the upcoming IAEA Board of Governors meeting (reftel). Negm replied that Egypt is interested in discussions of fuel supply assurances and hopes that the Secretariat and other Board Members will clarify each proposal's technical, legal, and financial issues involved. Negm mentioned that the GOE is analyzing the proposals from Russia, Germany, the IAEA, and the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI). Negm said that while Egypt at this time does not prefer one of proposal over the other, the proposals from Russia and the NTI were the two of the better proposals, and specifically noted that the Russian proposal seemed to be the most "realistic." Negm also recalled Egypt's firm belief that any such "fuel bank" proposal must not deny the Member States their rights to enrichment and reprocessing. Negm also believed that the G-77 countries are now starting to realize that a fuel bank could be in their interests, and therefore the G-77 may be more helpful in reaching consensus on this issue, assuming that their concerns are addressed.
