A day after whistle blower WikiLeaks made public secret US diplomatic communications, Minister of State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur on Monday said it is a "very sensitive" issue and the government would like to "wait and work this out."

"This is a very sensitive issue. We have good bilateral relations (with the US) and they had already warned us.... So, I think it is not the right time to comment on it and we want to continue having good relationship with the US that.

So, I think let us wait and work this out," Kaur said. She was asked about the reports that the US diplomats were spying not only on the UN head but other personalities as per the secret communications which were made public by WikiLeaks which released millions of cables regarding US foreign policy.

Kaur also maintained that "it is an internal matter for each country and their diplomats... what they want to get and how they deal with it." Over three million cables were released by the WikiLeaks documenting correspondence between various US embassies and consulates.

The US had warned India and other key governments across the world about the potentially embarrassing release of classified documents by WikiLeaks which may harm American interests and create tension in its ties with its "friends".
