New Delhi, Nov 30: The United States has started damage control measures after the release of 2.5 lakh official diplomatic cables by whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks.

As a measure to soften India for States Secretary Hillary Clinton's comment of “self-appointed front runner" for India's United Nations Security Council (UNSC) seat bid, which was exposed in diplomatic cables, United States assured India that it "welcomes a greater global leadership role for India."
