Rumania Names New Envoy to Tel Aviv After Year’s Lapse

The Rumanian Government has broken a year-long boycott of diplomatic relations with the Israel Government by nominating a new Minister to Tel Aviv. It was announced here today that the new envoy, Constantin Stanesku, is expected to arrive next week-end.

The former Minister was recalled a year ago after an attack by Premier David Ben Gurion on the Rumanian Government’s attitude toward Jewish migration to Israel. During the year, the Rumanian Legaion’s affairs have been handled by a Charge d’Affaires.
