Hotovely pledges to push through Dayan’s appointment

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely denounced Brazil’s apparent refusal to accept Dani Dayan as Israel’s ambassador to the South American country during a meeting this morning, according to a recently released statement.

Brazil has reportedly not accepted Dayan’s credentials because of his past as a leader in Israel’s settler movement.

“I cannot abide a situation in which they do not appoint an ambassador because of his [political] positions,” Hotovely said.

“The Foreign Ministry will use all of the tools at its disposal to ensure that the appointment of Dani Dayan is successful,” the acting-foreign minister said. “Israel will not accept the phenomenon of refusing an ambassador due to ideology.”

Hotovely’s remarks were made during a meeting with the prime minister on her office’s plans to advance Dayan’s appointment.
