Netanyahu, Barak Make Peace After Dispute

Sunday, 07 Oct 2012 05:15 PM

JERUSALEM — Israel's prime minister and defense minister say they have buried the hatchet after a much publicized dispute.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office has accused Defense Minister Ehud Barak of trying to undermine him in discussions with American officials.

Barak has said he did nothing wrong, presenting himself as a moderating force who has repeatedly smoothed over relations with the Americans throughout Netanyahu's tenure.

The two Israeli leaders have been close in recent years, particularly regarding the threat posed by Iran's nuclear program. Last week's falling out sparked speculation that the government's days may be numbered and elections could be nearing.

A statement released Sunday by Barak's office, in consultation with Netanyahu's, said the two see "eye to eye" regarding the Iranian threat and relations with the U.S. administration.
