Lieberman to Mattis: 'Iran, Iran and Iran'
Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman met with his American counterpart in Munich on Friday morning for the first time since former Gen. James Mattis assumed the role of secretary of defense.
The two said that they intended to maintain open and frank dialogue and to cooperate to strengthen Israel's security and to preserve US interest in the region, Ynetnews reports.
During the meeting, the men discussed a series of matter, but Iran was first and foremost among them. The Israeli minister even stated that the three central problems that need to be dealt with were "Iran, Iran and Iran."
Lieberman said that North Korea and Iran are the two poles of the axis of evil that includes Hezbollah and the Assad regime in Syria, with Iran being the common thread, apparently mixing his metaphors. The secretary and the minister agreed that they must act decisively against Iran.
