New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said the government is not concerned about WikiLeaks but yet interested to know about it.

Interacting with the mediapersons while returning to New Delhi, Krishna said: "India's government is not really concerned but we certainly are interested in finding out what this WikiLeaks are all about because they (Americans) say that they are going to put on the web four million documents,"

On his four-day visit to the Sri Lanka, he mentioned that an agreement was signed with President Mahinda Rajapaksa according to which India will give a 416 million dollars loan for the reconstruction projects in conflict-ravaged parts of Sri Lanka.

"I was able to initiate projects which deal with agriculture projects, housing projects, connectivity and then projects which deal with resettlement of internally displaced persons. On the whole, I had a good discussion with President Rajapaksa," said Krishna.

The External Affairs Minister handed over hundreds of tractors to Sri Lankan Tamils so that they could revive agriculture in the region.

Krishna further said the United Nations Security Council reforms would be discussed with the visiting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao next month.

"When we will take up discussion with Premier Wen Jiabao on multi lateral issues; the reforms of the United Nations and in particular Security Council is going to figure in our discussion," said Krishna.

During his stay in Sri Lanka, accompanied by the Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao, Krishna participated in the seventh India-Sri Lanka Joint Commission Meeting to review the progress of the bilateral projects.
