    The Czech Republic believes that the documents carried by Wikileaks offer no threat to Czech national security, but is of course wary of any global tensions it may cause. It is also supporting the Interpol warrant for the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, to be returned to Sweden to face trial for sex crimes, details of which can be found here: http://www.interpol.int/public/data/...2010_52486.asp

    With a potentially hazardous site such as this, it is important for the UN to take more care with diplomatic documents. We would also like to thank the United States for warning us of the impending leak of data concerning Czech meetings with United States officials.

    Portugal believes it highly important that international relations are not compromised by the statements of individual diplomats.

    We also support the Interpol warrant for Assange to face trial in Sweden.

    However, Portugal expresses concern over the USA's decision to gather personal information about UN officials, and would appreciate an explanation for this issue.

    Iran is highly dubious about this so-called 'leak'. We feel that it is extremely unlikely that such a high volume of documents could have been released without the knowledge of aspects of the US governement, particularly the intelligence services. The statements supposedly made by regional countries about us seem suspicious, and it is likely that they are intended to support the position of the Israeli government by building distrust of our peaceful nuclear policies. Indeed, President Ahmadinejad has described this as a form of psychological warfare.

    Moldova is hugely concerned over these leaks and calls for the site's owner to be prosecuted, as soon as possible, for breaching security laws.

    Regardless of what Iran thinks, the facts are this.
    Private First Class Bradley Manning who was an intelligence analyst has been accused of putting classified information onto a CD and then distributing said information to people who do not have security clearance to view it.
    He is being held in solitary confinement and is being questioned.

    The USA takes a very dim view of this, as it is a massive security breach. There is information that should not be revealed.
    As such Julian Assange has been identified as a main figure in all of this, as he has recently threatend to publish yet more secret documents.

    The USA finds this deplorable and seeks to put an end to this.

    Nigeria finds it rather funny that the US seeks to do this by using an Espionage Act that was used, unsuccessfully, against the New York Times.

    Pakistan believes that the Wikileaks publications regarding Pakistan and the US are a thing of the past. We look forward to the future and will not let these unauthorised publications ruin the strategic partnership of Pakistan and the US. We believe the publications to be based on raw information taken out of context that does not reflect the real nature of the official correspondence.

    Afghanistan agree's with Pakistan that that we both do not trust Wikileaks and don’t believe them to be authentic.

    Iran is glad to see another nation sceptical about the legitimacy of these clearly fraudulent documents.

    The Slovak Republic would like to express its approval of WikiLeaks' actions. All the effort of Mr. Assange, his colleagues and supporters is highly appreciated and hopefully will reveal the real truth to the public.

    The Republic of Azerbaijan has a transparent foreign policy and will not change due to these leaks. In a recent European survey, 69% of respondants agree with knowing about the contents of the cables. It would also like to remind other nations that politics does not have permanent friends or enemies.

    Azerbaijan is also suspicious over how relaxed the US is concerning the leaks. It is far too strong a power to be indifferent to the proceedings. In a world where every country would like to be at the centre of the international stage, such information could provide an invaluable source to strengthen themselves.

    Norway is concerned for the safety of the inidivduals compromised by the information leaked onto this website. However, we applaud Wikileaks for their commitment to open government, and Norway remains alarmed to learn of the Surveillance Detection Unit (SDU) set up by the US with the goal of systematic monitoring of the Norwegians.

    Norway asks the United States if this allegation is based on, or is wholly, truth? However, Norway would like the Representative for the United States to note that we remain committed to a strong and cordial relationship between our nations regardless of their response, and asks only to determine the extent of Norwegian involvement and potential safety compromise within the information released.
