Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer slammed Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman in an interview with Army Radio on Sunday, saying "the foreign ministry can't be a war ministry. It has to be a ministry that gives a message of peace."

About his meeting with the Turkish foreign minister, Ben-Eliezer said "I would do it again." Lieberman was not notified of the meeting, which occurred 3 weeks ago, leading to a deterioration in relations between the foreign minister and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
