Argo Ideon from Postimees spent last week two days in the editoral office of Aftenposten, Norway’s largest daily newspaper that offered Postimees access to confidential Wikileaks information about Estonia as Aftenposten and Postimees have the same owner, Schibsted media group.

Ideon says he found 610 documents about Estonia that had been prepared in the US Embassy in Tallinn and about as much prepared by other sources.

Ideon who has a keen interest in foreign policy says that the information will be published by Postimees only after it has been thoroughly checked. He says that what is notable from these documents is that they show how keen the Americans are on Estonian domestic politics and elections.
