Vice Premier Moshe Ya'alon on Saturday accused Defense Minister Ehud Barak of putting his own political interests ahead of national matters of importance.

Speaking at a cultural event in Ramat Gan, Ya'alon said that though Barak and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu see eye-to-eye on the issue of the Iranian threat, the latter abandoned their shared stance at the last minute, and presented himself as a moderate.

Ya'alon's comments follow a dispute between Netanyahu and Barak that broke out on Tuesday when a conversation was leaked to the press, in which Netanyahu told Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz that the defense minister was undermining him during recent meetings in the US.
