Israel's Olmert won't fire Livni
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert did not fire his deputy, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, saying they would continue to work together despite her call for his resignation.

Livni issued a public call last week for Olmert to step down following the release of an official report sharply criticizing his handling of last year's war in Lebanon.

A statement issued by Olmert's office after the two met on Sunday said they "agreed to continue to work together as part of the government headed by Ehud Olmert."

Olmert's office said the brief meeting, at the end of a regular cabinet session, dealt with diplomatic issues rather than any personal differences.
