PARIS — A French official says the government will change the way it sends diplomatic missives in the aftermath of the latest publications by Wikileaks.

Francois Baroin says the country will change its methods for dispatching such documents but has not provided further details.Baroin briefed reporters after a Cabinet meeting Tuesday. He says President Nicolas Sarkozy told ministers that the release of the Wikileaks documents is the "height of irresponsibility."

Baroin said the French government is in contact with the US about the issue.

This weekend, Wikileaks began publishing more than 250,000 leaked United States embassy cables — a cache it says is the largest set of confidential documents ever released into the public domain.
