Sydney, April 9: WikiLeaks founde Julian Assange has unveiled a new search engine, which will act as a portal to a big archive of 1.7 million of US diplomatic cables.

The search engine, named PLUS D (The Public Library of United States Diplomacy), includes 2,50,000 leaked state department cables which were made public during Cablegate, the time in the American history when memos of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's were revealed in public.

According to News.com.au report, Assange confirmed that the US state documents listed on PLUS D are already declassified and much of the information has been made available in the US National Archives and Record Agency already.

Assange said the range of documents available publicly range in the number of two million and were not efficient to search through, the report added. Assange said PLUS D makes it easier for journalists to investigate the issues by using a search algorithm that "rivalled Google".
