The Kissinger Cables

print   ·   T  T  

Continuing a partnership that began in 2011 with the India Cables and Pakistan Cables, The Hindu is in investigative collaboration with WikiLeaks once again to bring to its readers a new set of U.S. diplomatic communications, this time from an earlier but highly turbulent period in India's political history: the early-to mid-1970s.

The ‘Kissinger Cables,’ comprising more than 1.7 million U.S. diplomatic records for the period 1973 to 1976, relate to a period when Henry Kissinger was the U.S Secretary of State in the Nixon and Ford Administrations. Starting today, The Hindu will publish reports based on cables of interest from this tranche that relate to India. The links to the cables, which have been obtained by WikiLeaks, will be available on our internet site and the WikiLeaks website,

As with our earlier collaborations, the Kissinger Cables have been accessed by The Hindu through an arrangement with WikiLeaks that involves no financial transaction or obligations on either side.
