Barack Obama New Delhi, Nov 30 (ANI): US Ambassador to India Timothy J. Roemer on Tuesday said that the United States Government has condemned the unauthorized disclosures of confidential information and sensitive national security information.

In a statement, Roemer said: ” By releasing these documents, WikiLeaks puts at risk the cause of human rights, the lives and work of dedicated individuals, and threatens our ability to conduct essential private and diplomatic dialogue.

Reassuring India that US welcomes a greater global leadership role for India, Roemer said: “The United States values its perspectives on how to meet common challenges, including countering terrorism, securing our maritime domains, and working together to promote democratic, political and economic development around the world.”

Roemer further said: “President Barack Obama supports responsible, accountable, and open government at home and around the world, but this reckless and dangerous action runs counter to that goal.”

“The United States is committed to maintaining the security of our diplomatic communications and is moving aggressively to hold accountable those responsible,” he added.

“During President Barack Obama’s recent visit to India, he reiterated that the relationship between the United States and India, bound by our shared interests and our shared values, will be one of the defining partnerships of the 21st century,” he said.

“The President’s stay in India, the longest foreign trip of his Presidency to date, underscores the US commitment to a long-term strategic partnership with India,” he added. (ANI)
