SUBJECT: GREECE ENCOURAGED TO MAKE CONTRIBUTION TO SPECIAL
REF: SECSTATE 129919
1. (SBU) On September 18, DePolCouns and PolOff delivered
reftel demarche encouraging Greece to make a contribution to
the special Tribunal for Lebanon to Ambassador Alexandros
Rallis, deputy head of the MFA D1 Directorate for
International Organizations. Rallis said Greece recognized
the importance of the tribunal and that he had already made a
recommendation to his minister to offer a donation. Rallis
said he argued that offering a contribution, however small --
"even if it's just one euro" -- was an important symbolic
gesture of support for justice in Lebanon. While Rallis
believed that Greece would make some contribution, he was
unable to say at what level.
This website hosts an archive of all 251,287 US Embassy diplomatic cables that were released by WikiLeaks between November 28, 2010 and September 2, 2011.
While the cables are generally available at http://wikileaks.org/cablegate.html
, we find it hard to search or even navigate the site to read the cables.
We have made all 251,287 cables available here at Dazzlepod with the hope to make it easier for readers to browse, search, share and discuss about the released cables.
The cables are periodically selected and posted to our Twitter page
and Facebook page
for readers to review them.
