After UK Foreign Minister David Miliband announced on Tuesday that Britain would expel an Israeli official following Israeli involvement in the forgery of UK passports, former Israeli ambassador to the UK Zvi Hefetz called the British move "harsh, maybe too harsh."

In an interview with Army Radio, Hefetz said that "There is a tradition of good relations between the countries, and I think Britain could have expressed their deep concern and unhappiness in other ways."

Hefetz said that he would opt for "lowering the flames and resolving the problems quietly behind the scenes."
