Gilad Erdan.

Israel’s ambassador to the United States and the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, has requested of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett that he be relieved of his position as ambassador to the United States in the immediate future, once a replacement is appointed by the Prime Minister. Erdan also noted that even in the event that a replacement has not been appointed by November, he will not continue in his position beyond that date. He will, however, continue to serve as ambassador to the United Nations. According to the terms of the coalition agreement signed by members of the previous government, Erdan is only supposed to serve as Israel’s ambassador to the United States until November, 2021, at which point former Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz would have become premier and appointed his own choice of ambassador to the position.
