Israel will re-open the embassy it closed in Wellington, New Zealand, some four years ago, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said Wednesday. Shalom's announcement came prior to a meeting in his Jerusalem office with New Zealand's new ambassador to Israel, Jan Henderson, the first such meeting since the arrest of two Israelis on charges of passport fraud in March 2004 sent Israeli-New Zealand ties into a tail-spin.
