“It is a great privilege to be the new British Ambassador to Israel,” he said upon entering the post on Monday.

“Israel is a fantastic posting. I look forward to getting to know all of Israel’s communities.

“I want to deepen the partnership between our two countries, in particular strengthening our ties in the fields of trade, investment, science, technology and cooperation against shared security threats, and work for progress toward peace.”
