The government has been warned by US authorities about the expected publication of sensitive diplomatic files on the whistleblower website WikiLeaks, Downing Street acknowledged yesterday.
Washington is braced for the release within days of thousands of documents on the website, which has previously published secret details of allied military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“These revelations are harmful to the US and our interests,” said the state department spokesman PJ Crowley last night. “They are going to create tension in relationships between our diplomats and our friends around the world.”
