Israel’s new envoy to Jordan presented her credentials to King Abdullah in a ceremony in Amman, becoming Israel’s first woman to serve as ambassador to an Arab country, the Foreign Ministry said. Israel announced Einat Shlein’s appointment last year, one of seven women who were nominated to 12 new diplomatic positions. Shlein is an expert in Middle East affairs and previously headed the international division of the Foreign Ministry’s diplomatic research center. She served in Amman at the beginning of her diplomatic career, as well as in Israel’s embassy in Washington. Shlein is replacing Israel’s previous ambassador to Jordan Daniel Nevo.
