Barak hits back at Likud ministers’ allegations

In a special statement from his office, Israel’s defense minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday that he had devoted himself to cultivating close ties with the US, especially in defense, and worked hard to ease tensions and enhance US support for Israel’s security and its policies.
