Liberman and Ya’alon to meet for ‘orderly handover’

Former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon agrees to hold a handover meeting with his successor Avigdor Liberman, who began the job today.

Liberman called Ya’alon on Tuesday, requesting to “convene an orderly handover meeting,” according to a Defense Ministry statement, which says that Ya’alon agreed to attend.

The date of the meeting was not immediately announced.

The call came weeks after Ya’alon quit his Defense Ministry and Knesset posts, accusing the country’s leadership of having lost its way, after weeks of a public spat with Benjamin Netanyahu and amid reports that Liberman would soon be given the position as part of a coalition-expanding agreement.
