Among more than 250,000 confidential US diplomatic cables, a portion of which was released by the WikiLeaks on Sunday, more than 3000 documents are related to Sri Lanka.

Among all the cables obtained by the WikiLeaks, there are 8,320 memos on China, 7,095 on Afghanistan, 5,087 on India, 4,775 on Pakistan, 3,166 on Sri Lanka and 2,182 on Bangladesh.

WikiLeaks began on Sunday publishing 251,287 leaked US embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain.

“The documents will give people around the world an unprecedented insight into US Government’s foreign activities,” the website said on the release of documents despite strong words from Washington.

“The cables, which date from 1966 to February 2010, contain confidential communications between 274 embassies in countries throughout the world and the State Department in Washington,” it added. (Source : Republica)
