Lieberman says apology to Turkey a 'serious mistake'
Lieberman says apology to Turkey a 'serious mistake'

An Israeli political source said the way to a formal apology was paved by the sidelining of Avigdor Lieberman, who opposed such a move when he served as foreign minister

Former Foreign Minster, MK Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel's apologizing for the actions of IDF soldiers is a serious mistake.   Lieberman was Israel's Foreign Minister at the time of the Mavi Marmara incent in 2010, and according to him: "Anyone who has seen the pictures from the Marmara understands without a shadow of a doubt that the actions of the IDF soldiers were self-defense."

An Israeli political source said the way to a formal apology was paved by the sidelining of Avigdor Lieberman, who opposed such a move when he served as foreign minister in Netanyahu's previous government.

Lieberman resigned from the post in December after he was indicted on fraud charges. The far-right politician's return to the position in the new Netanyahu-led administration that took office a week ago depends on the outcome of his trial.
