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.

FAMILY TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS. 
 
REF: STATE 82494  Classified By: Political Counselor Richard M. Mills, Jr. for reasons 1. 4 (b) and (d).  1.  (C) Barring the reception of any further information linking Radovan Karadzic's family members to support networks for other Persons Indicted for War Crimes (PIFWCs), the UK will join EU consensus to lift travel restrictions which had been imposed on them.  FCO Balkans Office Deputy Director Adam Bye noted that the Office of the High Representative had approached EU officials in support of lifting the travel ban.  2.  (C) Bye suggested that if the U.S. has or develops information with linkages as suggested above, it should be shared with EU members, including the UK, as soon as possible.  He also suggested that if the U.S. delivers points reftel to the OHR and its support for lifting the ban is subsequently modified, there might be some chance that the EU would hold off on removing travel restrictions.
