FM: I told gov't to leave Ghajar without Lebanese agreement

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman commented on the proposed Israeli withdrawal from the northern part of joint Israeli-Lebanese village Ghajar on Sunday after the conclusion of his meeting with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle in Jerusalem.
"A tripartite agreement was to have been reached between Israel, Lebanon and the UN much earlier, however, the actions of Hizbullah torpedoed the initiative. Therefore, I have advised  [the government] to reach an understanding with the UN [alone] instead of waiting for the Lebanese," said Lieberman.
