ImageJERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's new foreign minister says Iran is the main obstacle to peace in the Mideast.

Avigdor Lieberman says it will be "impossible to resolve any problem in our region" without dealing with Iran's nuclear program and its support for extremist groups opposed to Israel such as Hezbollah and Hamas.

Lieberman made the comment in an interview published Friday in the English-language Israeli paper The Jerusalem Post.

Since becoming Israel's foreign minister, the blunt-talking Lieberman has sparked controversy by dismissing recent peace efforts led by the U.S. Before becoming foreign minister, he riled Israel's key Egyptian allies by suggesting Egypt's president should "go to hell."
