Minister Danny Danon to be appointed Ambassador to the UN

PM and FM Netanyahu: "Minister Danon has accepted the important challenge I have assigned him. The UN is an important forum right now and I am convinced that Danny will fight with all his power to present the truth in the international arena."

Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided to appoint Science, Technology and Space Minister Danny Danon as Ambassador to the United Nations.

Minister Danon has dealt with public diplomacy and international relations for over two decades. An MK since 2009, he has participated in numerous public diplomacy missions in recent years. He has served as Chairman of World Likud for the past nine years and is responsible for the Likud's foreign liaison and public diplomacy activity. He previously served as the Jewish Agency emissary in Florida and as such was engaged - inter alia - in encouraging immigration to Israel and in public diplomacy activity at US universities.

Danon graduated magna cum laude from Florida International University with a BA in International Relations and received an MA in Public Administration from Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Danon is 44, married and the father of three.

Prime Minister Netanyahu: "Minister Danon has accepted the important challenge I have assigned him. The UN is an important forum right now and I am convinced that Danny will fight with all his power to present the truth in the international arena."

Minister Danny Danon: "I thank Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the trust he has given me to represent Israel at the UN during this challenging period. I will do everything to advance the State of Israel's just positions."
