Former Israeli envoy to US sheds postive light on Hagel nomination

Published: 01.08.13, 10:16 / Israel News

A senior Israeli diplomat has given a positive view of Chuck Hagel's nomination as US defense secretary, though some commentators in the Jewish state expressed worries that the choice could open a new fissure in bedrock ties with Washington.

 

Deputy Israeli Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, a former envoy to the United States, told the biggest-selling newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth in comments published on Tuesday: "I have met him (Hagel) many times, and he certainly regards Israel as a true and natural US ally." (Reuters)
