FM: I am not a PM spokesman, I have right to my own opinion

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that he is not the spokesman for the Prime Minister and he has the right to his own opinion during an interview with Israel Radio Monday while defending comments he made regarding Turkey.
On Sunday, during an annual gathering of Israel’s ambassadors and counsel-generals at the Foreign Ministry, Lieberman said that Ankara’s demand for an apology over the Mavi Marmara incident is “beyond chutzpa.”
Liberman said that the things that were said Sunday were said at a closed Foreign Ministry conference, and there it is possible to raise different opinions.
