Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan has forbidden Israeli diplomats abroad to discuss or answer any questions about domestic or political matters inside Israel. The matter came up in the Knesset when Avraham Sharir of Likud asked about a Guardian report saying Avraham Kidron, Israel’s Ambassador in London, predicted a short life for the Begin government. Dayan said he sent a letter of reprimand to Kidron advising him that it was not his place to discuss domestic developments in Israel and that is so doing he had exceeded his authority.
