The Foreign Ministry on Wednesday named Nissim Ben-Sheetrit as acting director general, replacing Rafi Barak who is to become Israel's ambassador to Canada.

Ben-Sheetrit returned to Israel in the summer after serving a stint as Israel's ambassador to Japan. He is not expected to hold the job permanently, as Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman  has indicated an interest on naming his close advisor and former chief-of-staff Sharon Shalom to the post.

Shalom's appointment, however, will take a few months to be approved, since it will need to be vetted by the Civil Services Commission.
