Dec. 2 (Bloomberg) -- The diplomatic cables released by Wikileak.org show how the U.S. government is waging a dirty war across the world and disrespecting world leaders such as Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said in comments carried on state television.

Leaked diplomatic dispatches sent by the U.S. Embassy in Caracas show how the U.S. is worried about Venezuela’s relationship with Cuba, Chavez said.

On the U.S. dirty war:

“The reports are proof of a dirty war by the Yankee embassies all over the world and look how they mistreat even the leaders of powerful countries. Look how they mistreat a great friend of ours, Vladimir Putin, and President Medvedev, the Russian president. They lack respect for the Chinese.”

On Venezuela’s relationship with Cuba:

“They say they are worried about the presence of Cubans in Venezuela. What do the squalid ones say? That the Cubans should go. Of course, the Cubans came here because this is the fatherland of the Cubans and ours too.”
