WikiLeaks releases further US embassy cables on Hungary
Thursday, 01 September 2011 16:04
Whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks made available a total of 27 US diplomatic cables about Hungary late on last Wednesday. The website made the cables available on its website directly, unlike in the past, when they were published in high-profile newspapers or magazines. The diplomatic cables prepared by the US embassy in Budapest are dated between 2006 and 2010. None of them belong in the “Secret” category but four, which had been published in the past already, were classified as “Confidential.”
The majority of the newly available cables discuss Hungarian foreign policy and reactions to US foreign policy moves. One of the cables, dated December 2008, concerns Hungary’s sole nuclear power plant in Paks. The cables can be viewed at the wikileaks.org website.
