Storting parliament Snorre Valen Wikileaks said on condition that contributed to "draw a map of the freedom of information."

"Xiabao Liu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize last year, fought for human rights, democracy and freedom of expression in China," Valen wrote on his blog. "Similarly, Wikileaks took part in the battle those same values throughout the world, exposing (among many other things), corruption, war crimes and torture."

Wikileaks is a site that publishes documents concerning its business and neglect of the government. Critics have accused of endangering national security, while the defenders have said that protect whistleblowers.

The site has published numerous secret documents, including the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
