Obama, Sarkozy Fed up with Netanyahu

A leaked conversation between US President Barack Obama and his French counterpart Nicolas Sarkozy suggests both are tired of dealing with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

A number of journalists overheard the private chat held during last week’s G-20 summit in the French city of Cannes, after it was inadvertently transmitted over a system used for translation, AFP reported.

"I can’t see him anymore, he’s a liar," Sarkozy told Obama in French.

"You may be sick of him, but me, I have to deal with him every day," Obama responded.

This comes as the journalists, who overheard the conversation, initially made a group decision not to report the private conversation.

Netanyahu’s office has made no comment on the leaked conversation.

The initial topic of discussion was apparently Sarkozy’s failure to inform the US of French plans to vote in favor of Palestinian membership in the United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO), last month.

Although the world’s 20 top economies participated in the two-day summit in order to reach a solution regarding the current economic crises in the US and Europe, a practical agreement was not reached.
