Even as the outgoing government met for their last cabinet meeting on Sunday, harsh words were exchanged between Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, after the former refused discuss a request from the latter to travel to Paris with his wife. According to the request, which Olmert did not include on the meeting agenda, Barak had planned to attend an 'Agudah Lemahan Hachayal' fund-raising event, and to meet with French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner. Olmert said that the government could no longer approve state visits, and that the matter should be left to Prime Minister-designate Binyamin Netanyahu, whose government is expected to be sworn in on Tuesday.
