Nations around the world are condemning the release of confidential U.S. diplomatic cables on subjects such as Iran’s nuclear programme and U.S. efforts to spy on foreign officials.

France, Britain, Pakistan and other nations are criticizing the release of the documents by the WikiLeaks organization.

The group made public thousands of State Department documents on Sunday, revealing a hidden world of backstage international diplomacy. The cables show often unflattering U.S. assessments of foreign leaders, ranging from U.S. allies such as Germany, Italy and Afghanistan to other nations such as Libya and Iran.
