Turkey says 'no change' in attitude against US diplomats after leaks

Turkey's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday that Turkey was not assuming any attitude against U.S. diplomats after the web-site Wikileaks posted secret U.S. diplomatic reports.

Spokesperson Selcuk Unal of the ministry said that U.S. diplomats could get an appointment from Turkish executives within the framework of regular procedures like diplomats of other countries.

"Like every other country, we are also examining the content of the documents, and we have launched an investigation," Unal told reporters.

Unal said it was too early to brief reporters on the investigation, and experts should first look into the documents to see which one of them was accurate.

"We should investigate the possibility that it can be a disinformation," the spokesperson said.

International non-profit media organization, Wikileaks, leaked out classified U.S. State Department cables on November 28.
