Returning FM Lieberman makes US ambassador first appointment

In his first statement as reinstalled foreign Minister Tuesday, Avigdor Lieberman said: “Our relations with the US are paramount, and without that we can’t maneuver in the present world. Disagreements are natural and always existed, and simply don’t need to be heard the way they are outside.” He called for calm in the current disagreements with the US, without mentioning Iran or the Palestinians.
Lieberman made his first appointment on his first day in office (after a court cleared him of graft charges) a meeting with US Ambassador Dan Shapiro.
