ROME (AFP) -- The US State Department on Tuesday condemned as "offensive and inappropriate" reported comments by Israel's defense minister criticizing a security plan put forward by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

"The remarks of the defense minister if accurate are offensive and inappropriate especially given all that the United States is doing to support Israel's security needs," spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki told reporters following a visit by Kerry to the Vatican.
