Secret cable discussed Iceland's position on Cuba

When Iceland attended the Non-Aligned Movement Summit in Havana in 2006, officials weren't cozying up to Cuba. They were lobbying for a seat on the United Nations Security Council, this secret U.S. embassy cable says.
Thordur Bjarni Gudjonson, acting political director at Iceland's Ministry for Foreign Affairs, is quoted as saying his government would:
look for chances to influence any final NAM declarations "in a positive direction."
