Dani Dayan appointed as Israel’s NY Consul General

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced Monday morning the formal appointment of former Yesha Council head Dani Dayan as Israel's Consul General in New York.

Dayan will replace Foreign Ministry career official Ido Aharoni, who is completing his term.

The surprise announcement comes after eight months of deadlock with Brazil, which had refused to accept Dayan's appointment as Israeli Ambassador to Brasilia.

It currently remains unclear whether Israel will choose to send an ambassador to Brazil, or choose to leave the embassy without an ambassador as a protest.
