The government approved the appointment of Homeland Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i (Independence) to serve as the next ambassador to China on Sunday.

In response, Vilna'i stated that "After five intensive years of working to prepare the Israeli homefront, I am moving to the next task - the strengthening of strategic, defense and economic ties with China, which is one of the most important countries in the world."

Vilna'i, who will be replaced in the Knesset by former MK Shakib Shanan, added: "We are at a very dramatic stage for Israel's security, and China could be one of the foundations of our success."
