Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also currently serves as foreign minister, named Yuval Rotem as the ministry's director general on Thursday.

Rotem has been serving in a temporary capacity in that position since the resignation of Dore Gold in October. The announcement came at a sending-off ceremony for Gold in the ministry.

Rotem, a former ambassador to Australia, is currently the ministry's deputy director-general for public diplomacy. He served as Netanyahu's chief of staff in the ministry when Netanyahu – who was then prime minister – held the foreign minister's portfolio for 10 months in 1998.
