Taraf says it will begin publishing reports on the cables on Thursday.

A Turkish newspaper says it has linked up with WikiLeaks to publish thousands of U.S. diplomatic cables covering Washington’s relationship with Turkey - the country from which the largest number of cables originated.

Taraf said on Wednesday it reached a deal with WikiLeaks which had sought cooperation with the liberal newspaper. The Hindu began publishing U.S. diplomatic cables related to India on Tuesday in a similar deal.

Taraf says it will begin publishing reports on the cables on Thursday.

U.S. President Barack Obama had assured Turkey that the release on the WikiLeaks website of U.S. diplomatic cables containing negative comment about the Turkish leadership did not reflect the view of the current U.S. government.
