Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan ended months of speculation about whether he would accept an offer to become ambassador to the UN when he announced on Tuesday that he had decided to remain at his ministry.

Erdan thanked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman for showing confidence in him by offering him the post. He said that he thought long and hard about taking the UN ambassadorship, but he instead decided to continue what he called revolutions in recycling, composting, decreasing air pollution, and developing metropolitan parks around the country.
