Steinitz slams Newsweek report on Israel's alleged US spy efforts

Intelligence and Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz slammed the Newsweek report according to which Israel's spy efforts in the US are hushed up by US officials.

 

"It seems that someone is trying sabotage the very good intelligence cooperation between Israel and the US. Not once, in any meeting we have had with our US counterparts did we hear any complaints about Israeli spies, only complements on out outstanding cooperation.

 

Next week Steinitz will meet with Dianne Feinstein, the Chairman of the US Senate Committee on Intelligence, to discuss the reports. (Attila Somfalvi)
