"As is" reference - not a United Nations document
MS. HARF: Well, the Secretary spoke to this a little bit this morning in his press avail in Kuwait. He said – and I’m quoting – “We just can’t let one set of comments undermine that effort” – obviously, the peace process is what he’s referring to, and, quote, “I don’t intend to.”
So I think we made very clear yesterday our position on those comments. The Secretary spoke to it, and I think I’d let his words speak for themselves.
QUESTION: Marie --
QUESTION: Has he received a formal apology?
MS. HARF: I just don’t have anything more for you on this, guys.
QUESTION: One more on Yaalon.
MS. HARF: Yeah.
QUESTION: There are reports that the U.S. has asked Prime Minister Netanyahu to publicly condemn Yaalon attack on Secretary Kerry. Is that true?
MS. HARF: I just – I know there’s a lot of rumors out there. I just don’t have anything more for you on this. We’ve been very clear that we found those comments offensive. The prime minister is free to speak for himself.
