The new Israeli Ambassador in Washington, Sallai Meridor, former Jewish Agency chairman, will present his permanent credentials to US President George W. Bush after having submitted temporary credentials to the State Department three weeks earlier, and has been working since.
It wasn’t before long that Meridor began his intense work load. Until now he has briefed American journalists and engaged in speeches and conferences with all the General-Consuls of Israel in America, which have taken place at the White House.
Meridor called on all consuls in America to work together as a delegation in joint cooperation for achieving common goals, among them being the dealing with the Iranian threat that presently affects the State of Israel. Other issues discussed included the 2008 US presidential elections. The talks ended strengthening joint efforts between the ambassadors and consuls.
