Sarkozy urges Israel to sack Foreign Minister
Wednesday 01 July 2009
The French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, has advised the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to fire his Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, according to two senior Israeli government officials.
M. Sarkozy said "you must get rid of that man" and replace him with the more moderate former foreign minister Tzipi Livni. Mr Netanyahu replied that in private meetings Mr Lieberman "sounds differently" but M. Sarkozy retorted that in private talks, Jean-Marie Le Pen – the far-right French politician – is "a very nice man".
