WikiLeaks & US Embassy Cables Relevant to Asia
Nov. 28, 2010 - Dec. 05, 2010
The Guardian, a UK newspaper and one of the recipient publications of the US embassy cable traffic leaked by WikiLeaks, has provided a helpful listing of the cables separated by country and other subject names. The listing will take you to "secret" and "confidential" cables related to China, North Korea, South Korea and Kim Jong-il. Clicking on North Korea, for example, will bring you to 20 cables that run from November 3, 2007 to February 22, 2010. Clicking on China will bring you to 18 cables from March 11, 2007 to February 22, 2010 that illuminate sensitive issues in US-China relations including Tibet, Chinese claims to “basic interests” in the South China Sea and East Sea, Taiwan, and Iran.
