Following the appointment of Mark Regev as Israeli Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Simon Johnson CEO of the Jewish Leadership Council, has made the following comment:
The JLC looks forward to working with Mark Regev in his new role as Israel's Ambassador to the United Kingdom. As a former spokesperson for the Israeli Prime Minister, Mark Regev brings with him a wealth of experience in engaging with the media. That the Israeli Government has placed such a high profile advocate in the UK shows how vital the UK-Israel relationship continues to be.
The trade and cultural ties which the United Kingdom and Israel enjoy is vital to the Jewish community. I am sure that Mr Regev will continue to grow those associations through his engagements within the community as well as progressing the important political links between our two countries.
