Monday, 2 December 2019 | The newly appointed US ambassador to the UN [United Nations], Kelly Craft, is expected to arrive for an official visit to Israel in January.
Arrangements are being made for the ambassador to meet with state and defense officials in Israel.
Craft is expected to visit the Western Wall and the northern and southern border regions, where she will be briefed about the activities of Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria.
Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Dani Danon, will escort Craft on her visit.
After serving as the US ambassador to Canada since 2016, she was offered the new position by President Donald Trump, replacing Nikki Haley.
After receiving the position in September, Craft was quoted as saying that “Israel is deep in my heart.”
