Foreign Ministry employees: Someone is trying to destroy us

Israel only has 100 foreign embassies to Iran’s 167, Foreign Ministry workers lamented at a meeting of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense subcommittee on Foreign Policy Monday to discuss the impact of cuts to the ministry.

Former foreign minister MK Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu), who initiated the meeting, said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who currently holds the Foreign portfolio, is cutting more and more authority from the ministry even though Israel is fighting a diplomatic battle against boycotts and against the world powers’ deal with Iran.

“The prime minister is fighting against Iran’s nuclear deal with the US, but at the same time decided to close three consulates in the US,” Liberman stated. “It’s not clear what the government’s diplomatic considerations are and on what it is basing its policy decisions.”
