Havana: Cuba`s state-run media is reporting that the government will publish Spanish translations of diplomatic cables about the communist-run island, leaked by WikiLeaks.

Cubadebate website says the "Razones de Cuba" site has already posted literal translations of seven of the cables.

It says the posted cables originated in the US Interests Section in Havana and "prove the links between the so-called `internal dissidence` and the United States government ... and the attempts to organise youth networks to subvert the Cuban revolution”.

The US has no formal diplomatic relations with Cuba and maintains the Interest Section instead of an embassy.

Cubadebate said on Thursday WikiLeaks has 2,080 cables on Cuba, of which only 62 have been published.
