Foreign diplomatic representatives.
Note on contacting foreign diplomatic representatives:
Embassies and high commissions are not usually called for security-related questions such as location of military bases or the functioning of secret services. Ability to obtain information from diplomatic representatives depends on availability of information and cooperation from individual countries.
