The government of Brazil for two months refuses to endorse candidate Dani Dayan as the Israeli Ambassador in Brasilia, said a senior Brazilian source Times of Israel.
According to this information, Brasilia will not give the answer on the candidature of Diana, while the Israeli side does not understand that it is necessary to appoint another Ambassador.
The reason for the unwillingness to accept Diana as the Ambassador is not only connected with the fact that he was head of the Council of settlements of Judea and Samaria, but also how he was appointed Ambassador to Brazil, said the same source.
At the present time the post of Ambassador of Israel in Brazil is Reid Mansur. He was appointed only in 2014, but his wife refused to move to Brazil, and in the summer of 2015 he said he wanted to go with this post. Benjamin Netanyahu, who kept the portfolio of foreign Minister, decided to appoint to vacant post Diane. The Brazilian side did not like such a rapid change of Ambassador.
How will the current crisis in the Israeli foreign Ministry to assume a loss.
It should be noted that immediately after the appointment of Diane leftist activists in Israel and Brazil have begun to protest against his candidacy.
However, the Chairman of the opposition and the leader of the block «the Zionist camp» Isaac Herzog appealed to the Embassy of Brazil in Israel with a request to transfer leadership of the country the requirement to take credentials Dani Dayan as the Israeli Ambassador.
