State Dept. Critical Over Ya'alon Critique of US Policy


United States State Department officials requested a clarification over critical statements from Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki stated on Wednesday "clearly his comments were not constructive. It is certainly confusing to us," adding that Ya'alon's statements don't necessarily "reflect the view of the government of Israel."

Earlier Ya'alon said that US foreign policy exhibits "weakness."
