Israeli ambassador in Switzerland called back over 'gesture' to Ahmadinejad
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has instructed Israel's ambassador in Switzerland to return to Israel for consultations following Swiss President Hans-Rudolf Merz's meeting and dinner with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

 

Lieberman's office clarified that the move was in protest of Switzerland's approach towards "a Holocaust denier who has spoken more than once about the need to wipe Israel off the map." (Roni Sofer)
