State Dept.: Ya'alon's Call to Hagel Not an Apology


Spokeswoman Jen Psaki of the United States Department of State said, Thursday, that the U.S. does not view Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon's phone call of clarification to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel as an apology for remarks earlier in the week that the Obama administration is showing weakness in the international sphere, including Iran.

Referring to earlier criticism, Psaki said the U.S. was dissatisfied with the pattern of Ya'alon's comments.
