France's foreign ministry is tightening security to avoid further scandal after the Wikileaks revelations. Paris' ambassador to Tehran stresses that French diplomacy ‘will not change’, nor will the diplomats' ‘psychological portraits’.
AFP - With an embassy network second only to the United States, France stressed Thursday it had taken steps to avoid its own WikiLeaks fiasco as diplomats said frank pen portraits highlighted by the leaks would continue.
The French foreign ministry said it had beefed up security to avoid ending up in the same embarrassing predicament as the US State Department after WikiLeaks began releasing a quarter million confidential US diplomatic cables.
