US President Barack Obama on Sunday refused to discuss an overheard conversation he was party to in which French President Nicolas Sarkozy called Israel’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu a “liar”.
In the chat picked up by an open microphone at this month’s G20 summit in France, Obama also appeared to show frustration with the Israeli prime minister, with whom he has had a tense relationship.
“With respect to the ‘hot mic’ in France, I’m not going to comment on conversations that I have with individual leaders,” Obama said.
