Iran's President has questioned the recent leaked documents obtained and published by the Wikileaks website, saying the US administration "released" material intentionally.
In response to a question by Press TV on Monday over the whistleblower website's "leaks," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said "let me first correct you. The material was not leaked, but rather released in an organized way."
"The US administration released them and based on them they pass judgment …. [The documents] have no legal value and will not have the political effect they seek," the Iranian chief executive added at the press briefing in Tehran.
Ahmadinejad stressed that the Wikileaks "game" is "not worth commenting upon and that no one would waste their time reviewing them."
"The countries in the region are like friends and brothers and these acts of mischief will not affect their relations," he added.
It is a curious thing that out of some 251,000 docs, Wikileaks so far has only uploaded 226, with a highly selective and disproportionate dump of those relating to US narratives on Iran.
For their part, the Iranians seem to be taking this cooly. They've agreed to further talks in Geneva, despite the Wiki-releases and a recent attack on a pair of their nuclear scientists. And they haven't so much as intimated any knee-jerk diplomatic repercussions in the region.
