Following Clinton's Semi-ban, Kerry Intends to Turn Over a New Leaf With Lieberman

U.S. official says the U.S. intends to 'work well' with Lieberman in his second term as Israel's foreign minister.

It was June 18, 2009. Then U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had just finished a meeting in Washington with Israel’s new foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman. The press conference after the meeting quickly turned into a public clash between the two, with Clinton calling on Israel to freeze construction of settlements and Lieberman letting her know that this would not happen.
