Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz lauded on Thursday Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon for clarifying to Washington late Wednesday that he did not intend to cause offense in remarks made on Monday about US policies.

"I think minister Yaalon did the right thing, explained everything in his apology, and I really hope there was no serious harm done to the strategic ties between Israel and the United States," Steinitz told Israel Radio on Thursday.
