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.

(SBU) Post delivered reftel demarche to the appropriate U.K. Treasury (HMT) and Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) interlocutors on November 5, 2009.  Our HMT colleagues, who have the lead on IMF issues within the U.K. government, confirmed that the U.K. will be abstaining from the November 6 vote on the basis of the concerns they outlined at the July IMF Board meeting. They were unable to confirm if the U.K. Executive Board Director would raise their concerns during Board discussion or in public statements afterwards.  If any statement is made, it is unlikely to be echoed by government representatives in the U.K. as their current press focus is the November 6-7, G20 Finance Ministers meeting in St. Andrew's, Scotland.
