SANTIAGO, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Chilean Foreign Minister Alfredo Moreno said on Wednesday a senior U.S. official called him to express regret over the disclosure of U.S. documents by Wikileaks.

"Yesterday (Tuesday) I talked to William Burns, the third person in charge at the U.S. State Department, who called to talk about the issue," Moreno told reporters.

"They do not know what is going to be published about our country or about the rest of the countries, but he called to tell me that he regrets this situation and the problems it has created," Moreno said.

On Monday, Moreno received a phone call from the U.S. embassy warning him about possible allusions of Chilean public officers in the documents released by Wikileaks on the Internet.

Moreno said, "Whatever the content is, it must be judged as a private conversation. I think that anyone can understand that, but we will see when we have the information."

Spanish newspaper El Pais reported on Tuesday the documents may contain comments by former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet about Argentine President Cristina Fernandez.

WikiLeaks has recently released more than 250,000 confidential U.S. cables, exposing the inner workings of U.S. diplomacy, including extremely candid assessments of world leaders.
