The Foreign Ministry's appointments committee named Daniel Taub as Israel's next ambassador to London, a Foreign Ministry source confirmed Monday shortly after the committee met.
The British-born Taub, a widely respected diplomat inside the ministry, will replace Ron Prosor, who just recently took up his new post as ambassador to the UN.
Taub, currently the Foreign Ministry's senior deputy legal adviser, is considered an authority on humanitarian law, international organizations and counterterrorism. He has served on Israel's negotiating teams during talks with both the Palestinians and Syrians, and was co-opted by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last September as part of his small team that negotiated for just a few weeks with the Palestinians.
