Viewing cable 08LONDON1933, UNMEE: UK AGREES WITH USG THINKING ON MANDATE'S FUTURE

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.

ΒΆB. LORD/KANG/KHAMBATTA/SCHOFIELD EMAILS  Classified By: Political Counselor Richard Mills, reasons 1.4(b/d).  

(C/NF) The FCO Peacekeeping Team Leader said on July 24 that although some HMG officials are still grappling over UNMEE's termination because they think the UN could play a valuable role as a deterrent in a return to conflict, the UK supports the U.S. position on non-prejudicial termination of UNMEE. Officials in the FCO's Africa Directorate see "no point" for the mission to continue, especially since Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles has come out strong against a follow-on presence.  HMG would like to see a read-out from SRSG Azouz Ennifar's July 22 meeting with the Ethiopian Deputy Foreign Minister to confirm that Ethiopia has no interest in a follow-on mission of any kind before HMG moves officially forward in support of termination.  HMG agrees that the Security Council should continue to encourage both parties to implement the Algiers Agreement and the Secretary General should continue to engage with Ethiopia and Eritrea in an effort to normalize relations between the two countries.
