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.

SUBJECT: COSTA RICA SECURITY DIALOGUE 
 
REF: STATE 112900 
 
1.  Embassy San Jose reports that the United States does not have 
an established security dialogue with Costa Rica.  However, in the 
context of counter-narcotics and law enforcement cooperation, Post 
entities such as DEA and the Office of Defense Representative (ODR) 
work closely with their counterparts on counterdrug operations, 
training, and humanitarian support missions.  Additionally, via the 
Merida Initiative we have quarterly meetings to review progress 
towards achievement of project goals and objectives such as: 
Breaking the Power and Impunity of Criminal Organizations; and 
Assisting the Government of Costa Rica in Strengthening its Border, 
Air, and Maritime controls.  These meetings are relatively informal 
and are useful opportunities to exchange information. 
Additionally, we have a bilateral maritime agreement with Costa 
Rica to coordinate maritime seizures of illicit trafficking in 
Costa Rican waters. 
 
 
 
 
 
2. Costa Rica does not maintain a military, but does have a 
Ministry of Public Security that is charged with both domestic and 
national security.  Its largest formation of police officers is a 
10,000 person uniformed police force.
