WikiLeaks release 'deplorable': Obama

During a telephonic conversation with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Obama expressed his regrets for the deplorable action by WikiLeaks and both the leaders agreed that it will not influence or disrupt the close cooperation between the United States and Turkey, the White House said.

"The leaders discussed the enduring importance of the US-Turkish partnership and affirmed their commitment to work together on a broad range of issues," the White House said in a statement .

Turkey in particular has been in the spotlight in the wake of the documents dump, which included 7,918 cables from the US embassy in Ankara, the post with the most cables in the leaked stash.
