DAVOS (Switzerland) – RUSSIA’S President Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday he thought the release of leaked US diplomatic cables by the WikiLeaks website could have a positive effect on international diplomacy.

Brandishing his iPad, the tech-friendly Medvedev said modern communications had linked people in such a way that ‘no very serious secret can be guaranteed immune from being disclosed today.’

‘At the end of the day, I believe this WikiLeaks story should make the spirit of international relations healthier even if, in itself, this was an illegal activity,’ he added.
