Amid all the concern about the direction that Israel-Egypt ties will take under Egypt's new Islamic President Mohamed Morsy, the Foreign Ministry announced Sunday that the new Egyptian ambassador will present his credentials in Jerusalem on October 17.

"The big deal about the announcement," one diplomatic official said, "is that the relationship is continuing and naming a new ambassador is not a big deal." The official said he did not know whether the Egyptians ever considered not sending a replacement for Yasser Rada, who finished his term a few weeks ago.

The new ambassador is Ataf Salam, who began working in that capacity on Sunday. Previously he served as Egypt's consul in Eilat.
