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: SYRIAN IAEA BOARD CANDIDACY: U.K. AGREES WITH 
U.S.COURSE OF ACTION  REF: STATE 76033  

Classified By: Political Counselor Richard M. Mills Jr. for reasons 1.4  (b,d)   

ΒΆ1. (S) HMG concurs with the U.S. assessment of Syria's candidacy to the IAEA Board of Directors and will do what it can to support Kazakhstan's candidacy, FCO Counter Proliferation Officer George Sherriff told poloff on July 21.  Sherriff said that his counterparts in Vienna "agree on (the USG) course of action and will do what (they) can."  He indicated that HMG has "already started (internal) talks" on the issue, and that they were "happy to do" what they could to further Kazakhstan's candidacy.  Sherriff indicated that he will keep us informed of HMG's subsequent actions on this matter.  

Comment -------  

ΒΆ2. (S) Sherriff, who was filling in for Nuclear Issues Team Leader Nick Low, did not offer any specific information on HMG's plans to support Kazakhstan and/or pressure MESA countries to back away from a Syrian candidacy, and appears to have closely consulted with UK IAEA Mission in Vienna on the response to the U.S. message.  US Mission UNVIE may want to follow up with U.K. delegation counterparts on what specific steps HMG will take with MESA members and in Astana to push for Kazakhstan's candidacy.  Embassy London will pass on any further information on HMG's actions when it becomes available through FCO channels.  Visit London's Classified Website: XXXXXXXXXXXX TUTTLE
