Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan agreed Monday to a proposal by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to serve as Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations and Israeli Ambassador to the United States as well.

“I am proud and moved by the privilege of struggling for the justice of our cause in the international arena and defending Israel in the face of the expected challenges in the coming years,” Erdan said in a statement released Monday night.

In the meantime, Erdan will continue serving in his current position as public security minister until his appointment as ambassador is approved by the government, the PMO said.
