Lieberman back as Israel's foreign minister
The Israeli parliament on Monday voted to reappoint ultra-nationalist Avigdor Lieberman as the country's foreign minister, dpa reported.
The vote came a day after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet gave its approval to Lieberman's return to office.
Lieberman had stood down in order to fight fraud and breach of trust charges, of which he was acquitted last week.
Netanyahu had taken on the foreign affairs portfolio himself, pending the outcome of Lieberman's trial.
Sixty-two of Israel's 120 members of parliament voted to reinstate Lieberman.
Lieberman is the head of the Israel Beiteinu party, which is allied to Netanyahu's Likud.
