Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman spoke out Thursday against the public dispute between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak reported in the media this week.
In comments leaked to the media on Tuesday, Netanyahu criticized Barak for undermining him in meetings with US officials.
Speaking in an interview with Israel Radio, Liberman called the "public bickering" unnecessary and stated that Netanyahu had the power to "organize" the matter. When asked if Netanyahu should fire Barak, as some Likud MKs suggested Wednesday, Liberman said, "I don't give advice on who to fire."
