SANAA, Yemen (AP) - Yemen's Foreign Ministry says WikiLeaks memos about content of talks between Yemeni and U.S. officials are inaccurate and incorrect.

The ministry, in a statement Wednesday, said Yemen's stances are clear and do not carry double meanings and its dealing with its brothers and friends stem from its national and pan-Arab principles.

Documents published by WikiLeaks cited exchanges showing Yemen's president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, telling top NATO commander Gen. David Petraeus that his country would pretend that American missile strikes against a local al-Qaida group had come from Yemen's forces.
