US embassy cables 1973-1975: Mintoff in the eyes of America

Full declassified cables from US embassy in Valletta to Secretary of State in Washington.

These embassy cables from 1973 to 1975 detail the antics of former Prime Minister Dom Mintoff in the eyes of the Americans, and are freely available from the US National Archives archival databases.

All cables are grouped by year, and referenced by the month and day they were despatched. So 0110 would be the cable that left Malta on 10 January.

Some of the cables are grouped thematically, namely the Helsinki CSCE talks; the conversations with Nationalist MP Mario Felice, and the Mintoff-Israel incident.

Search the cables according to each year: 1973, 1974, 1975 on Google Docs.

MaltaToday had also carried a three-part Mintoff In The Eyes Of America special back in April 2010.
