President Barack Obama called Turkeys prime minister to mend ties following the release on the WikiLeaks website of U.S. diplomatic cables containing negative comment about the Turkish leadership, the government said on Sunday. Mr. Obama called Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday and told him that some of the comment in the cables does not reflect the view of the current U.S. government, and that the U.S.-Turkish alliance is vital, Mr Erdogans office said in a statement on its website.
