SUBJECT: SUPPORT REQUEST TO GAIN ALLIES' AND UKRAINIAN SUPPORT FOR
THE EXPANDED NATO TRAINING MISSION-IRAQ

REF: STATE 73794

Classified by: DCM Neil Klopfenstein for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d).

1.(C) DCM raised issue with Icelandic MFA Defense Director on July
14. The director said that it was very unlikely that the Government
of Iceland (GOI) would provide support to an expanded NATO training
mission in Iraq. He did not, however, give any indication that the
GOI would hinder such efforts.
