"Israel's relations with the United States are a cornerstone and without them we cannot make our way in the current global climate," said Avigdor Lieberman a day after being sworn in as foreign minister.

Addressing the heightened tensions between Jerusalem and Washington over the proposed deal between Iran and world powers, he said, "My first work meeting this morning was with Ambassador Dan Shapiro.

 

"Natural disagreements should not be heard on the outside as they have been. I think it's important to issue an 'all clear' signal and we will probably address that tomorrow. The relations are clearly a cornerstone; they're good and stable and nothing can change that."

 

During a "welcome back" reception held for Lieberman at the Foreign Minisry, Deputy Minister Zeev Elkin said, "The State of Israel needs your own personal voice to be heard and to strengthen Israel's policies."
