Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israel Radio on Thursday that he has no plans to leave the government prime minister's handling of the meeting between the Turkish foreign minister and Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, but that he was dissatisfied with the lack of notification he received before the event took place.

"It cannot continue this way... There must be work done with great consideration before acting," said Lieberman.

He continued, "We have a stable coalition and no one has to think about leaving. No one has to think about headlines or survival."

Asked whether how he felt about being excluded from knowledge about the Zurich meeting, Lieberman responded, "no one promised me a rose garden. I am happy with what I am doing."
