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.

1.(S) After close of business on August 28, George Forrest International (GFI) informed Industry Canada officials in writing that GFI had terminated its deal to acquire Forsys Metals Corporation and its Valencia uranium mine in Namibia, according to Sean Caza, Deputy Director for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation at the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT). Caza added that Industry Canada has closed its investigation, but DFAIT and Canadian intelligence agencies will continue liaison through established channels with U.S. and other allies to better understand the dynamics underpinning the relationship between GFI and Iran. Caza underlined that Canada will likely need to seek releasable information from the U.S. if GFI or another party seeks to resurrect the deal. He stressed, however, that he had no information that GFI was contemplating this course of action. Visit Canada,s North American partnership community at XXXXXXXXXXXX
