Kerry angered by Israeli minister's sharp criticism

US Secretary of State John Kerry speaks during a town hall meeting with university students at the State Department in Washington, DC on March 18, 2014In a rare move, Secretary of State John Kerry protested Wednesday to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about strong criticism of US foreign policy by his outspoken defense minister. In a telephone call, Kerry told Netanyahu the comments made by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon were inconsistent with strong ties between Israel and the United States, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. “Clearly his comments were not constructive,” Psaki told reporters, after Yaalon accused the US administration of showing weakness around the world, particularly on its policy with Iran and Ukraine. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning and protested to him his concerns about these comments,” she said, adding that the United States has an “unshakeable commitment” to Israel’s security.
