The United States is bracing for more embarrassment as whistle-blower website WikiLeaks gets set to release around 3 million secret US documents this weekend.
Last month, WikiLeaks exposed some of the damning war crimes by US forces in Iraq and Washington is perhaps yet to recover from its humiliation.
However, this time US is battling to take its allies into confidence as WikiLeaks may release some more secrets that may hit its ties with some of its closest allies, including India.
America feels that the documents likely to be released could damage its relationship with allies, including India.
US has already warned India and other key allies like Australia, Britain, Germany, France, Israel, and Russia.
A statement from the US State Department says: “We have reached out to India to warn them about a possible release of documents. We do not know precisely what WikiLeaks has or what it plans to do. We have made our position clear. These documents should not be released.”
However, WikiLeaks seems determined to release classified conversations between the US government and its missions across the world.
