Lieberman, British FM Discuss Arrest Warrants

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman held a long conversation with his British counterpart, David Milliband, on Tuesday night. The two discussed several bilateral issues, as well as Israel's dissatisfaction with recent British arrest warrants against Israeli officials.

Milliband expressed concern over the situation and said that it was not acceptable to him or to other members of the his government's cabinet. Milliband said that the government would find a way to neutralize the orders, which were being issued by British courts, based on a law that allows the courts to prosecute "war crimes" anywhere in the world. Lieberman also took the opportunity to express Israeli concern over the British government's stance on the Goldstone report and the marking of Israeli products from Judea and Samaria with special markings.
