Albania's letter is considered a rare occurrence in diplomatic circles especially since an official request to appoint her to the symbolic position had already been made to the Foreign Ministry and raised in a meeting at the Prime Minister's Office. Reidman is a personal friend of Sara Netanyahu, wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
