Carol van Voorst for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d). (C) Pol Chief presented reftel points to the Icelandic Ministry for Foreign Affairs Defense Department on the morning of June 6. MFA Defense Department Counsellor Fridrik Jonsson contacted Pol Chief later in the day to report that Iceland shares the USG's concern over the Russian approach to revising the Treaty on Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE). Jonsson added that the Icelandic delegation to the High Level Task Force (HLTF) on June 7 had been informed of the U.S. position. The GOI is strongly hoping that the HLTF produces a unified Alliance approach. "Otherwise, the Russians will exploit any difference of position between Allies," he observed. van Voorst
