LONDON (AP) â€”Â U.S. allies around the world have been briefed by American diplomats about an expected release of classifiedÂ U.S. files by the WikiLeaks website that is likely to cause international embarrassment and could damage some nations’ relations with theÂ United States.
The release of hundreds of thousands ofÂ State Department cables is expected this weekend, although WikiLeaks has not been specific about the timing. The cables are thought to include private, candid assessments of foreign leaders and governments and could erode trust in theÂ U.S. as a diplomatic partner.
InÂ Britain, Prime MinisterÂ David Cameron‘s spokesman,Â Steve Field, said Friday that the government had been told of “the likely content of these leaks” by U.S. AmbassadorÂ Louis Susman.Â Field declined to say whatBritain had been warned to expect.
“I don’t want to speculate about precisely what is going to be leaked before it is leaked,”Â Field said.
In Washington,Â State Department spokesmanÂ P.J. Crowley saidÂ U.S.diplomats were continuing the process of warning governments around the world about what might be in the documents. Many fear the cables will embarrass theÂ United States and its allies, and reveal sensitive details of how theÂ U.S. conducts relations with other countries.
