European reaction to WikiLeaks

Countries make assurances that leaked memos will not influence relations with US.

    WikiLeaks, the whistle-blowing website, has released thousands more classified documents, this time detailing sensitive diplomatic relations between the US and a range of other countries. 

    The memos include unflattering assessments of Washington's European allies, causing embarrassment across the continent.

    However, most countries in Europe have been quick to reassure the US that the secret memos will have no influence on their relationship.
