Israel’s New Envoy to the U.S. is Slated to Arrive Sunday

Israel’s newly appointed Ambassador to the United States Meir Rosenne, is scheduled to arrive in Washington on Sunday from Paris where he has spent close to three years as Israel’s representative. Rosenne today took his leave from President Francois Mitterrand after having met members of the Cabinet at a luncheon given in his honor at the Quai D’Orsay.

Foreign Minister Claude Cheysson paid tribute to Rosenne’s “devotion and outspoken defense of his country’s interests and policy.” Rosenne was also feted by the Gaullist opposition leader and Paris Mayor, Jacques Chirac.
