Liberman denies poor ties with US delaying defense package, says deal likely by November

FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Negotiations between the Prime Minister’s Office and the White House’s National Security Council on the coming decade’s American defense assistance package to Israel will likely conclude with a deal by November this year, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman told military reporters here on Tuesday.

Liberman denied reports saying that talks were stalled because of poor bilateral diplomatic relations, saying that they were at the very last stages before a deal.

"The Americans are well aware of the threats we face, the terrorism that exists of every kind, on our borders, and of Iran’s destabilization efforts," Liberman said.
