National Security Advisor Uzi Arad will replace Ron Prosor as Israel's ambassador to London, who will in turn become the ambassador to the United Nations, Israel Radio reported on Sunday.
The diplomatic shuffle was set to take place after several notable Israeli officials turned down the position at the United Nations, including Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky and Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan.
According to the report, Maj.-Gen. (res.) Meir Kalifi will replace Arad as national security advisor.
