You're reading: WikiLeaks revelations are not Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s concern

The OSCE will not intervene in the scandal caused by the publication of classified documents from the US diplomatic communications between U.S. embassies throughout the world and the State Department in Washington on the Wikileaks website, said the OSCE Secretary General Marc Perrin de Brichambaut.

Everything we do and discuss within the framework of the OSCE is made public. We are not afraid of civil society, not afraid to explain what we are doing, to admit weakness and recognize challenges when responding to crisises. However, the controversies that surround an increasing publicity of the diplomatic life is not our concern," he said at a news conference on Tuesday in Astana.

The Secretary General of the Organization stressed that the leak of the classified information is the problem to be settled individually by each country involved.

WikiLeaks website plans to release cables from 274 U.S. embassies, consulates, and diplomatic missions around the world dated from 1966 to 2009.

According to the US State Departments labeling system, the most frequent subjects discussed are External Political Relations (145,451), internal government Affairs (122,896), Human rights (55,211), Economic Conditions (49,044), Terrorists and Terrorism (28,801) and UN Security Council (6,532), it said.

Of the cables obtained by it, WikiLeaks said 15,652 are secret, 101,748 confidential, 133,887 unclassified; Iraq most discussed country – 15,365 (Cables coming from Iraq – 6,677), Ankara, Turkey had most cables coming from it – 7,918 while those from the Secretary of State office are 8,017.
